Reviewing the Sign Ordinance

Dear Editor: I have had my own sign company in Rockdale for almost 20 years and was originally invited to Conyers almost 30 years ago by Mike and Joe Kelly to help with their sign shop on Railroad Street.

The funny thing is, these proposed changes to the existing sign ordinance for Rockdale County, to be "more in line" with the city codes, is not so much about signs. It ...

Thanksgiving is one of the last unspoiled holidays we have - a holiday that's still celebrated roughly the same way it's always been celebrated. Sure, there's always the unwavering Arbor Day, but when was the last time your boss gave you a day off to have a fancy dinner party with a bunch of trees? No, Thanksgiving is one of our last major holidays that would still be recognized by the originators. Do you think Joseph and Mary would recognize a modern Christmas? "Mary, who's the fat guy in the red suit? And were there any flying ...
