, If you clicked the link in my last message that was supposed to take you to my talk on Guns, you got an older talk on the 9th District's economy. You have my apology. This time the link is correct. I'm putting a series of policy talks on YouTube. Guns and Global Warming are numbers six and seven.
If you missed the first video, it was my talk to Tea Party groups on economic inequality. It got good reviews and can still be found by clicking here. If you haven't seen it, start here.
Other talks can be found here.
GLOBAL WARMINGAnd by the way, if you have not liked my Facebook page, please go there and do so.

Oconee County needs bike paths, not bike lanes, along Simonton Bridge/Whitehall

Has anyone ever ridden a bicycle up or down Simonton Bridge Road/Whitehall Road without feeling their life was endangered? No they have not. I will be posting periodic photos of actual bike paths, separated from the actual street and much safer, from the corn fields of far northern Iowa the next week.

I wish there were safe and wide bike paths off of Simonton Bridge as a means to buffer and prevent the invariable expansion surely coming soon. A codicil could be written into the deed transferring the property to keep it as a bike path in perpetuity.

I would also like to see a bike path from the corner of the front of the Botanical Garden to the actual Simonton Bridge in the area of Clarke County called Whitehall.  There is going to be a massive construction project changing that traffic "triangle" to a traffic circle sometime in the next 18 months, greatly contributing to my tardiness at work.
