Is Michelle Obama like you and me with her room service lunch of caviar, lobster and champagne?  Is Hillary like you and me with her $6,350 custom made pant suit?  Would you be ready for the world stage with the clothes in your closet?

Just how did this wire on Custer Lane get damaged and who's to blame for the damage? That’s what I would like to know.

In response to article "Coaches are Geniuses". Way to go Joe!  I think mediocrity in coaching is best too!
------------------------
Joe, nice article on "Coaches are geniuses when teams win." I wasn't sure of the current coach’s record in his 18 years so I did some studying and found out that it is 64 wins and 96 losses. That's good (right)? If you are in a public position (like a coach), you will have to face criticism. This is the same as being the hero or the "genius" when you win. What happens when you build a team around a playbook instead of building a playbook around a team? Let's call that 2006, 2007 and 2008 or as you put it "same playbook."

The last council meeting was alot of bull.  Service charge I can understand, it's the price we pay for power from other states to send here. But demand is another story. Demand is what a business uses, in other words, the purpose of a demand meter is to record the greatest amount of power used over a interval of time. It's takes two meters to do this -- one reads kilowatt hours the other reads kilowatts -- that would be your demand meter -- two meters in one. If you live in a residence home you are paying for kilowatthours and if you run a business you also  pay for kilowatt hours and should pay for demand. This is the 15,30 or 60 minutes interval of time that the business uses more power within that hour and a kilowatt hour meter will not read this, so it is free power to the business.  It takes a kilowatt meter to read this and there is no demand charge in Augusta so it is free power to the business and if you live in a residence home you are paying for the free power that the business is getting. That extra money of that demand charge that the business is getting away with should go toward are EFA bill that would help lower are cost to residence home owners. Most of the council members owen a business that's why there is no demand charge in augusta. And that's not fair to thoses of us that don't run a business here in Augusta.
