Impertinent Observations

So, James Whitehead is refusing to throw in the towel just yet. I fully understand the rationale, but think that the strategy will just reinforce in many voters’ minds why they did not vote for him in the first place.

Regarding a possible Brenau University school of medice, see articles from yesterday and today in the Gainesville Times, as well as the related editorial in today’s Banner-Herald.

Finally, I note that the Oconee County School District can actually lower its millage rate (from 17.7 to 17.5 mills), even as its enrollment and budget increase, because of growth in the tax digest. Of course, the same dynamic is at work in Clarke County (20 mills), we simply spend the extra money - and then complain that the state does not give us even more.
