Isn't that an issue left up to Cobb County? Every time I inquire about roads, I'm always told thatRead Morei t is a "county" issue.

No ATT U-verse in our area. I called today to get prices for dropping some services and was toldRead Mored irectly conflicting information between the two calls I made with regard to cost of equipment being included or not.

Yes, there is still "bait and switch." Yes, you can talk with 5 people and get 5Read Moredifferent responses. Go to Comcast's Facebook page and click on the Comcast icon that has the rainbow colors (like the old peacock feathers). There you can post a comment and read the complaints that are written quite frequently. You can also use Twitter.

Did any of you guys really read what I posted? I said I called the City and the Woman made it clear Read Moreto me if I lived in Legacy Park, my trash would be picked up! My main gripe was that I do not live in Legacy and should not have been asked that particular question. My stuff will stay at the curb until it is picked up. I don't care. The City of Kennesaw website is not user friendly at all. It is easier to speak to a live person. Unfortunately, this time, it was not what the residents wanted to hear. Butler Ridge is part of this community also. Don't all act surprised when I say we are trash or slums on this side of 41 when those words have come out of City Hall in the past year. Don't Sugar Coat things with me. It does not work! Ernie does a great job and I commend him for his hard work and due diligence with this city. This city needs more Ernies to get this city in ship shape.

Yes, I read what you wrote. All of it. Is it possible that what they meant when they asked whereRead Moreyou lived that they had a specific schedule for Legacy Park due to its immense size? I don't think they implied anything, but you sure did infer a negative response. If you read my post, you would see that I was simply stating that the website related the trash pickup schedule so that you could have saved a few minutes and some heartache, by checking it out. I appreciate the website providing the information, and many people don't seem to take advantage of it.

My trash was picked up both weeks on Saturday and I don't live in Legacy Park. I thought that under Read Morethe circumstances with the snow storms that the new garbage service did an exemplary job.

Thank you. We are originally from southern VA but have been here since May 2013. It's been a nasty Read Moremess and people should be smart & stay home. This storm was better than the last. You stay safe too! I have always wanted to go to Boston & hang out in Southie 😉. Thank you for your kind thoughts. I have some great pictures of the Big Chicken 😄. It is one of my favorites too

PATCH commits libel, harassment and creates civil discourse. These people are able to get away with Read Morewith it because the "train wreck" that occurs in almost every thread creates traffic from "rubberneckers". That traffic creates numbers for the site and PATCH turns that into advertising dollars. Hale Global Patch's parent company is profiting off of the dissension and disharmony in this community. An environment they created by fueling the emotions surrounding a controversial project. Hale global fires the unethical editors and reports their libelous stories. Patch leaves these negative highly damaging stories and post to remain online to purposely damage people If PATCH hadn't allowed this behavior to take place, giving these fake profiles and those with obvious mental disorders a place to spew their venom, friends and neighbors would still be speaking to each other. Instead, they supported the division of this community. Hale globule is a troublemaker leaving those smutty stories and comments. I hope they get sued and exposed. Aol Lost millions. Serves them right for all those distorted, misleading stories.

They'll fail for the lives Patch destroyed greedy pigs
Russell February 17, 2014 at 04:33 PM
Bill, now you care after they fired you. You didn't care when you participated in writing libelous Read Morestory telling. HALE GLOBAL AND AOL PATCH SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. Politicians are involved in paying for falsified scandalous stories being produced to defame and libel people. AOL Patch paid for their dirty deeds by losing millions and being sued by investors. ARMSTRONG is the worse CEO in history and now HALE GLOBAL is caring the cursed patch to further destroy people with the outdated defamatory online stories. See what happens to them. GOD DON'T LIKE UGLY.
Russell February 05, 2014 at 03:16 PM
Why is hale global firing editors but refusing to remove the inaccurate, outdated misleadingRead Morestories that were paid off by political operatives to manufacture Patch wrote misleading, false stories that were reported one sided for advertising money. Hale global fires the editors but keeps these unethical, defaming stories and posting online. This is reckless reporting. A paid off social media site that AOL ran and is still operating today. These stories should be removed Patch is a greedy desperate social media site that is politically connected to reporting defamatory stories that are orchestrated by misleading inaccurate media Editors should contact US Justice Department and tell them about Hale Global Patch Practices Reproducing inaccurate stories on a forum site is unethical and can open Hale Global to lawsuits

Rather than just a Kennesaw mailing address, I suggest you consider being annexed into the City.Read More The City of Kennesaw has the lowest crime statistics in the County. Further, our Department earned accreditation from CALEA (Commission for Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies), one of the very few Cities in the Country.

Neighborhood Watch programs are effective. The following courses are offered without charge toRead MoreCobb County residents. NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM - Our goal is to educate members of a community about crime, criminal patterns, and what to do if you are a victim, or a witness to a crime. The neighborhood is then organized into a system of observers trained in “watch” procedures. This program lasts 1 hour and begins a continuing liaison with the Crime Prevention Unit. Neighborhoods will need to have at least 50% of homes participating to establish the Watch Program. You can contact Officer Mike Bowman of the Cobb County Police Department's Crime Prevention Unit at: ~ 140 N. Marietta Parkway N.W., Marietta, Georgia 30060, ~ By phone at 770-499-4134, or ~ email at Michael.Bowman@CobbCounty.org. (preferred)
