My guess is the same as yours, but both women are generously proportioned. They haven't been short of beans and 'taters for some time.

Re: “Jackson, Lankford in rematch for Fulton County sheriff

I don't care about you disliking my comment . The Truth is the Truth. Especially when you have evidence to back up everything you say . See I would NEVER go and slander anyone character and not have PROOF to back up what I say . Ted Jackson is a very untrustworthy , dishonest person . I have lost all respect for the man . I can't stand liar . Ted Jackson YOU ARE A LIAR!! . The only reason you running is you want to make sure Jimmy Carter and the rest of your FBI buddies keep there high paying salaries . You don't care about the moral around the department . You know about your high ranking people sleeping with subordinates . . People of Fulton County Sheriff Richard Lankford is the True God fearing Sheriff of Fulton Co. Let's bring back the REAL SHERIFF! Richard Lankford July 26, 2016. If Sheriff Lankford had a criminal past . No way POST would have allowed him to keep his Police Officer certification , his badge . Etc. Ted Jackson is just desperate and throwing mud . I'm telling you the truth Fulton County voters . I don't have a reason to Lie. I'm retired . I'm not trying to come back. I just want to see Fulton County safe and the Depitues that's there see intergrity restored back to the Sheriff Office of Fulton County again. My 75 yr old mother and my family live in Fulton County. I was born and raised and grew up in Fulton County . From the Mozely Park days to going to school off Fair street bottom ( M.A.Jones) to Booker T Washington Higjh school to the A U center . Crime in Fulton County is out of Control. Community policeing need to be brought back .The good citizens of Fulton County deserves this.

Re: “Have rising rents pushed Atlanta housing into 'crisis' mode?

I was born in Atlanta 46 yrs ago, and have lived in Atlanta 46yrs. I am disgusted by the so called progress. Traffic is a holy nightmare. Old, long standing businesses have been torn down to be replaced with overpriced apartments, new neighborhoods popping up everywhere. The roads can't accommodate this many people. Rent and housing is ridiculously high. If you have only an associate's degree, or less, forget about making a decent wage.

Re: “Jackson, Lankford in rematch for Fulton County sheriff

Ted Jackson is the one who is NOT trust worthy. Those of you on here critizing Sheriff Richard Lankford have to be a Ted Jackson Supporter . See just about everything that comes out of Ted Jackson Mouth is. Fat LIE. That's all he does is LIE. He doesn't even run the department Jimmy Carter does. We had over 450 Deputies to leave the department in 2013.. The moral is just that bad. Now we not even counting 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016. If he's re- elected( I pray to God NOT) the Fulton Shetiff Office is going to be empty hiring be time . Ted Jackson and his FBI cronies came in there making so much money . He promise we wouldn't be so top heavy. He promise us that he would have more foot soldiers and less Majors and Chiefs . He add a lot of heavy brass. . No raises period for the Deputies, Sgt's, Lt's. None I over 8 yrs . Both his times he was elected . He said he would always have a OPEN DOOR POLICY for his Deputies . Every time I tried to meet with him to speak to him ( now this is going through my chain of command ) he NEVER would speak or see me. All my E- mails went unanswered , my letters I placed underneath his office door mark urgent never was answered .when I wound go up there to speak to him his secretary told me ( a sworn staff) I HAD ) to tell her what I wanted with Ted Jackson first . I wound tell her it's a personal matter. Now I know he new what I wanted . If I received my RIGHt TO SUE letter from the Feds. The Sheriff department . Had a copy too .Also my Grivsnces that was filed cause of Retailiation . And decrimnation of FMLA. Yes all of this for testify against one of his Majors on a Sexual Hassment case . A female Major . Start with a H end with a d. Against a civilian female she was hassaing . Well I WON my Right to Sue letter and the deposition began . I won my first appeal , I won my second appeal . Now we getting close to going to Federal Court . I Won everything on my 3 appeal . Then Ted Jackson LIED in. Deposition that he didn't know what was going on with me!!! Which was a ball face LIE. . How can you NOT know . Grievance hearings I went to . Right to sue letter. Every time I came to your office or call or gave you a letter and that was just about 5 days a week for about 2 month. You didn't ever want to talk to me . You new what was going on with me , you new I was been Harrssed by this Major. You did nothing to help me . You are a EVIL EVIL lying man. You have a daughter how would you feel if she was being Harrssed at work like this . I had been at the Sheriff Office From 1988 -- to 2013 after my health got so bad from the stress you and your cronies took me through . You lied so much !!! So if anybody need to see these deposition they are public record . Ted Jackson is EVIL and Jimmy Carter who really run the department is the DEVIL!!! What a man Sow shall he reap!!! I'm telling the truth and I will give anyone and interview my attorney and I . . Retired Sheryl Storey - Hammonds

Re: “Have rising rents pushed Atlanta housing into 'crisis' mode?

People here is how it works. As a developer you have to pay X for a piece of land or existing asset. You then underwrite the deal so you can get the construction funded. You then have to either sell or rent tbe units at a level to make money. If i uae my credit and money from both myself and investors, the object is to maximize both investors and my return. That is called business. Another thing...i cant just evict someone tomorrow it takes time and the tenant is afforded plenty of time to make living arrangements. Atlanta is very cheap compared to other US cities.

Re: “Have rising rents pushed Atlanta housing into 'crisis' mode?

@ oydave
You are spot on. In 1970 I rented a clean, one bedroom, 1 bath apartment off North Highland for $95 per month, equivalent to $580 per month today. The same apartment is $1,100 per month today.

Re: “Have rising rents pushed Atlanta housing into 'crisis' mode?

When you could make money owning lower tier housing, there was plenty of it. That changed in 1986 with the tax reform, or deform, act of that year. This bipartisan bill, in the name of eliminating tax shelters, made much it more expensive to own it and thus began the great wave of condo conversion. That's mostly long over but the insane tax laws still make it unprofitable to build or own such housing.

"She appears to make enough money for plenty of food."

So nice of you to mention that, Broch.

My guess is that Clemons is the woman pictured on the right, identified in the caption as "speaking," not the woman in the red shirt "holding the bullhorn."

You no-reading-comprehension a-hole.

Re: “First Slice 7/15/16: City Council to ask to renovate, not raze Central Library

How the fuck can broke ass Fulton County think they can afford several hundred million for a new library when they can't even afford to maintain the current one? Fulton is a poster child for mismanagement (Turner field, county jail, Fanplex, etc). City of Atlanta could take over the central library, and do a better job. I think that all of Fulton should become incorporated into one city or another, and take away all responsibility from the inept county commissioners.

Clemons is also a union activist which will not endear her to potential employers.
She appears to make enough money for plenty of food.

Re: “First Slice 7/15/16: City Council to ask to renovate, not raze Central Library

Good news, people spoke, city council listened. Kudos to CL for bringing the original story to the forefront:
"The Atlanta City Council is preparing to ask for Downtown's historic Central Library building to be renovated, not torn down or abandoned"

Bad news, GA is now tied for the most executions with TX for 2016 and carried out the first one in the U.S. in months:
"Last night Georgia executed John Wayne Conner, 34 years and one day after he was convicted for murder. "
