    The DeKalb County School System told employees yesterday that they were going to have to lay off teachers and other non-essential personel in December because the Governor cut their budget.

    Sales tax revenue was up the most -meaning the economy must have not been that bad! (even though gas tax increases were put on hold)

    Since the sky is falling in according to all the mainline media- let’s see what October brings in.

    Maybe Georgians are smarter than the rest of the country or maybe it’s what Bill says.
