Bridgefest in the Pines

The City of Stockbridge held its first ever Fall Festival at Clark Community Park on October 1st.  The city touted the festival asthe must attend event of the fall and will host a variety of art & unique craft vendors, a business showcase, an entertainment stage, a children’s area and more.”   Between the hours of 9am till noon the number of people attending were far outnumbered by those working the booths.

Several candidates for city council were also on hand.  And in this publication readers know that is the real motivation for this article!

T-SPLOST Risk & Gamble

The Citizen newsletter #290 featured an editorial named “T-SPLOST meeting in McDonough”

A city councilman took issue with the comment:

The Citizen admits to error.  The funding returned to counties and cities will not be based on predetermined project lists.  The returned funding will be available for discretionary projects by the counties and cities.
