    ◾Hi-Speed rail coming to Athens

    Whoever wrote this headline either did not read the article or does not understand the difference between talk and action, between the wish and the deed, between feasibility studies and railroad tracks with trains full of passengers running on them.

    I am curious of the opinion of those who brought up the issue of the Senate not passing a budget for four (or was it five) years. What is your opinion now that the Senate has passed a budget but now others are holding up reconciliation by refusing to appoint committee members? Are the holdups faction of Democrats in the Senate? Or is this a House Republican issue? Someone educate me, because I have seen conflicting reports.

    Home prices up 40% ? Not exactly, the median bar is crossing $200k indicating the $100k range houses are well absorbed or the market demand is for pricier homes. Well, unless you are a tax assessor, then your home is up 40%.
