Anyone willing to make a wager?

The Dekalb Commissioners still haven't figured out who they want to appoint to the Ethic's Board, there down to one person but there still dragging there feet. But as the excuses fly from Sharon Sutton and Stan Watson they feel that the ethics board is politically motivated. Do you all think they care to much about the voters and citizens of DeKalb County if there shuffling over there own ethics? I bet they will shuffle there feet till well after May 20th. I know two Commissioners who are embroiled in payola over planning and development as it concerns to someone's daddy that made the phrase "where is Loganville" famous.

Mimmie is exactly right. If you write like an uneducated person your readers will assume you are an uneducated person—and they will be right. You are HOW you write as much as WHAT you write. Why should I care what an ignorant, uneducated person thinks? It isn't rocket science. If you want to be taken seriously, write in a manner that expresses that wish or be ignored by anyone who matters.

Is the independent auditor of DC financial statements part of the ethics board. I was assuming an $80 Million restatement of 2012 numbers would push that along. When is the story coming out about that?

MHBrown and mimmie I was educated in Dekalb County Schools, went to UGA and earned a degree. Then i got married, stayed home to raise my children till they all left. Then I went to work for DeKalb County and later the State. If you don't like my blog then you don't have to read it. If the state of my english isn't up to your high standards then I'd suggest you volunteer your time to your local schools. To become a mentor to the children in need of help.

Regardless of anyone's capacity for mentoring the *current* DeKalb County youth, *you* are an adult, and are therefore responsible for your own ability to convey sentiments & arguments in proper English. If you want people to take your opinions on County issues seriously, and if you have a college education, SURELY it is worth the five minutes it would take you to learn about simple homophones like your/you're, there/their, etc. and the appropriate use(s) of each spelling. This is an elementary-level concept. In the meantime, as MHBrown mentioned, you will come off as ignorant and uneducated.
