Re: “Farewell, Fulton?

Your so-called "facts" are tainted by your own selfish desire to form the new city of South Fulton so that you can cash in on the big contracts promised to you and your business(es).

That cheap Schoolhouse Rock! rip-off you posted means nothing.

Re: “Photo of the Day: Obama visits Atlanta

I'm not entirely sure we should be listening to the political acumen of "BIGA146," especially considering that he doesn't understand the difference between "your" and "you're."

And let's not even get started on subject-verb agreement.

Re: “Atlanta, Sunday alcohol sales is within reach

On a slightly related note, nearly half of Fulton’s municipalities --including the county’s two largest cities-- have placed the Sunday alcohol sales question on the November ballot.

The 2010 Census placed Fulton County's population at 920,581.

Of the 920,581 people who call Fulton home, the six cities placing the Sunday alcohol sales question before voters represents 769,142 or 83.5% of the county's total population.

Yet Fulton County is not holding a COUNTY-WIDE election to submit Sunday alcohol sales to the voters.

That needs to change.

Re: “Atlanta, Sunday alcohol sales is within reach

According to the language of Senate Bill 10, the enacting legislation that enables counties and cities to put the question of Sunday sales to a vote, "If more than one-half of the votes cast on the question are for approval of Sunday package sales by retailers of malt beverages and wine on Sundays between the hours of 12:30 P.M. and 11:30 P.M., the resolution or ordinance approving such Sunday package sales by retailers of malt beverages and wine shall become effective upon the date so specified in that resolution or ordinance."

The resolution (11-O-1169) putting the question of Sunday sales before Atlanta voters does not have an effective date, so one can only assume that if more than one-half of the votes cast are for Sunday sales, it goes into effect once the election results are certified by the Fulton County Dept. of Elections.
