Morning Reads for Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Good morning! Early voting for the May 24 general primary started yesterday. Take advantage of the convenience, because until we have online drive-thru voting, early voting is as easy as it gets.

They may have come away from The James Beard Awards without hardware, but the story of Staplehouse is one worthy of much praise….and patronage. My MBH and I plan to get down there very soon.

I was not prepared for the gut punch of reading the history behind Staplehouse/The Giving Kitchen. Thanks for providing the link.

Question for the GP team: now that the vehicle for GeorgiaPol Radio™, “The Sully Show” on 640WGST, is no more (Rich is now going to be back full-time on the MHz wavelengths) what is the future of our aural Friday fix?

It is always easy to pick out the new weather/traffic people when they mispronounce the town names, Dacula being a perennial favorite with one that isn’t on the list also good to trip them up, Winder.

Locally one of the indicators that you ain’t from aroun’ heah are ya is the preference of Mountain View over Hog Mountain. Not a pronunciation issue of course so much as a more pleasant association. At least for newcomers who have no memory of the original Mountain View that the airport thankfully helped abolish.

Wealthy relocating: wonder how It worked out for Georgia with the professionals athletes playing for Georgia teams and declaring residency elsewhere ?

That’s fairly typical that pro athletes have their legal residents not in the state they play. Most players only spend 6 to 7 months working in the city they play a year, and most have a 2 year average of playing with the same team. If they have family, they will locate in an area that is stable for the children to go to school.

It’s likely irrelevant. Any games played in Georgia are taxed as income by Georgia.

Jock taxes are complicated…..Georgia must make a boat load out of high paid teams playing here and especially when the super stars come to town. My question was does GA chase the money as a few years ago it got real thorny.
