Re: “UPDATE: City rejects shelter's water payment offer, reveals plan to move homeless to other facilities

This really sounds like a ploy to get them out of the building. My guess is a new high rise in that location will be announced soon after the last person is gone. Whether you agree with PP or not, this looks like standard practice for City Hall.

Re: “Watershed department audit is one hell of a depressing read

@Brecko77 - You are likely 100% correct, and unfortunately we won't see it happen because I seriously doubt the Mayor's office would want the final report to be made public. In fact, we could see our own Deal-Ethics Commission-gate fisasco if that happens, i.e., the powers that be stop any action that sheds light on their incompetence and/or shady dealings.

Like DRHillis said, there is no way I'm trusting these crooks with $250M regardless of how bad our city needs it. Our city needs real leaders WAY more.

Re: “First Slice 9/4/14: Attorney General’s Office and state ethics commission director sanctioned, fined in Deal whistleblower case

"The two counts of fraud Boyer faces carry prison sentences of up to 20 years and fines of up to $250,000. However, prosecutors told the judge they would be satisfied with 18 months to two years since Boyer cooperated in the investigation."

This is exactly why we will continue to see our elected officials rob, cheat and steal from us. When the punishment is less than the crime then no example is set.

Re: “MARTA eyes North Fulton expansion

Lefkoff130b has it right. When I first arrived in Atlanta I was blown away with how big each of the stations are, and how empty of people every station is. Smaller, but more, stations should have been the gameplan. But does it surprise anyone that Atlanta seemed to have messed this up also?

That said, we don't need more stations on the existing line. There are too many already, especially given that the two lines travel on the same rails (and thus no express service). How much more convenient would it be if one train from the Airport skipped every 3 or 4 stops? Again, it just seems like whomever designed MARTA didn't have the vision, and those that run it now have their back against the wall. There may be a few solutions, but the number 1 solution needs to be "Look intown" and quit trying to branch out farther and farther in the country.

Re: “Reed's office responds to CL guest column on APS/Beltline dispute

It amazes me how Reed gets his panties in a knot everytime someone says anything he perceives as critical of him. Aren't politicians supposed to have thick skin?

Re: “Transgender woman attacked in L5P, video shows (Update)

Yeah, that guy doing the stomping should be in jail. For a long, long time. WTF. If that didn't break his/her face, I'd be surprised.

Re: “First Slice 6/16/14: Welcome to Downtown, Coca-Cola IT wizards

I would love for CL to interview these employees 6 months from now to verify they have not been murdered and/or if their unfounded fear of leaving Cobb County as diminished.
