Morning Reads – Tuesday, November 3, 2015

Good morning! I’m taking the reins on the Tuesday morning reads, so with homage to Stefan (and apologies to Ed), here’s a poem (that I didn’t write):

Monday’s child is fair of face,

Tuesday’s child is full of grace,

Wednesday’s child is full of woe,

Thursday’s child has far to go,

Friday’s child is loving and giving…

It’s Election Day, y’all, so whether you’re voting for a new city, for mayor, county commission, city council, or SPLOST, if your precinct is open, vote!

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the bigger elections happening today in Georgia. This is by no means comprehensive, so please add any others in the comments:

In other news:

  • If you’re a regular obituary reader (it’s the first section I turn to every morning), you’ve probably also noticed that there’s a definite uptick in deaths among middle-aged whites – and if you tend to decode the obits, you’ve probably also figured out that suicide and substance abuse are increasingly the cause of death.

    Public Hearing on adding gambling to Hope in Savannah yesterday… which no media outlet advertised or announced prior to the event. Just the state notice from the speaker was issued. And besides a few of us, who really reads them…

    Here are the only two pieces of media that covered the meeting today. One had a reporter on site, the other was a after thought mentioned during the 6:00 morning news.

        I was thinking the local in town media outlets. The meeting was held less than 2 miles from two television stations, and the rest of the local media outlets are less then 6 miles. The co-host was a local state senator. How hard is it to have a reporter on site?

    In Trenton there is a contested Streets Commisioner race, a incumbent Mayor vs. The current county 911/ema director who is also the city’s assistant fire chief.( seems like this would fall under the incompatible offices theory to me… I see many conflicts of intrest here.)
    In Walker County they vote to extend the esplost.
