Today families living under the same roof, are comfortable to text each other byway of smartphone, than knocking on their bedroom door, to say Good Night Social Media is here to stay. The same is true with smart phones, Twitter, Face Book and other social media platforms aroung the corner, this Fall of 2014. How would you like to make a quarter on each of your Face Book family and friends a month? Facebook is the largest online social network.

In 2008 Facebook had 100 million users and as of March 2013 has 1.11 Billion. Facebook filed for a $5 billion IPO on February 1st 2012 and valued the company at $104 billion.

    Col. Harry Riley Speaks to Americans Talk Show Along With Deborah Howard Operation American Spring has sprung. The momentum has been building, and our forces growing, for over eight months. The cries of millions of Patriots coalesce, in this coalition of Constitutionalists. We come with courage of conviction, with peace in our hearts. We are determined to mass. We will make our voices heard! We are armed only with our prayers. Our determination to rescue the government of the United States of America from the amoral enemies of Liberty is without bound. We must not fail! We come to the seat of power to speak truth. America has fallen away from the founding principles of freedom that once made her prosperous and great. We have become a nation not of liberty and law, but of elitist intimidation and crony corruption. Merit and hard work mean nothing anymore. No longer are American citizens free to exercise their God-given rights without interference from government. We come not as an attacking army of invaders, but in the bold vision of OAS founder Col. Harry Riley, as a massive 'human petition', demanding our elected Representatives begin the long-overdue task of cleansing our government of corrupt and criminal elements who have usurped their proper role as servants, and seek to rule, instead.

  4. Board adopts 2014 millage rateMon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    Gwinnett County’s millage rate will not change in 2014. The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners set the rate during its regular business session on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, after three public hearings on the matter. Actual taxes for most properties should be approximately the same as the estimate given on assessment noticesmailed in April.The millage rate for County operations stays the same at 7.40 mills. Rates also remained the same for the recreation and bond funds as well as the service districts established in 2013 that support police, fire and emergency services, development and enforcement, and Loganville emergency medical services. The total millage rate for properties in unincorporated Gwinnett remains the same at 13.75 mills. This rate only covers County government operations; the Gwinnett County Board of Education sets its own millage rate to fund schools. For more information about school taxes, visit www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us.The decision to keep rates the same means that property taxes will generate more revenue than last year due to a general increase in property values. By law, the Tax Assessor must assess the value of residential and commercial property every year based on recent sales of comparable parcels.Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said, “I believe this is the prudent thing to do. While we did what had to be done to work through the economic downturn, there are things we deferred that can’t be put off any longer. We still need to build and staff new fire stations, for example. We can’t take the revenue source for granted, though, and will continue to refine the way we use taxpayer dollars. We will spend every single penny wisely to make Gwinnett County the best it can be – now as well as five and 10 years from now.”During the recession, commissioners reduced the County workforce, held vacant positions open, cut operating budgets, cut or delayed new capital projects, and deferred capital maintenance. The County also absorbed rising costs of most commodities, covered the costs of new legislative and regulatory mandates, and continued to provide core services. And at the same time, more than 50,000 new residents moved into Gwinnett over the past four years.For an interactive online tool that shows estimated property taxes for any Gwinnett property and what those taxes buy, look underWhere Your Property Taxes Go on the Your Money webpage.

  7. Our Parks Maintenance Team: Keeping parks clean and safe for everyone to enjoyThu, 03 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    FOCUS ON is a monthly feature that tells how your county government employees focus on providing high-quality services to you each and every day. Our Parks Maintenance Team: Keeping parks clean and safe for everyone to enjoyAsk a homeowner why it’s important to keep the grass cut, and he’ll concede that it’s not just about looking tidy. Humans of all sizes know it’s tough to snag a fly ball when the grass is knee-deep. And every dog knows you can’t do a decent backflip to catch a Frisbee in mud. There are practical reasons besides the esthetic and safety issues. When your yard covers 10,000 acres, this is a much bigger deal. That’s what our Parks and Recreation maintenance unit faces every day. This team makes sure 175 sports fields in 46 Gwinnett County parks are mowed, watered, aerated, fertilized, and weeded. In addition to that hefty task, they also maintain 27 miles of fences and spend 30,000 hours a year picking up litter. Last year, they recycled 200 cubic yards of plastic bottles and other recyclable litter. Find out more about our Parks Maintenance Team.

  8. Beat the heat this summerThu, 26 Jun 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    Summer in Georgia is a time for camping trips, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. However, it’s also a time to be aware of the dangers soaring temperatures can bring. Extreme heat is the number one weather-related killer in the U.S, claiming more than 650 lives across the nation each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Follow these tips from Gwinnett County Emergency Management and Georgia Emergency Management Agency’s Ready Georgia to beat the heat this summer: Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. Fluids are lost through perspiration, so it’s important to stay well hydrated. Drink plenty of water, even when you’re not thirsty. Stay indoors in air-conditioned spaces as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun. Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Drink two to four cups of water every hour when you are working outside. Check on elderly neighbors and family and friends who do not have air conditioning. Make sure pets have plenty of water and shade, be careful to not over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion symptoms are heavy sweating, fatigue, muscle cramps, confusion, cold, pale and clammy skin, a weak rapid pulse, and possible fainting and vomiting. Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency that occurs when the body temperature reaches 106 degrees or higher. Symptoms include hot dry skin, rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness. Summon immediate emergency medical assistance. Insulate your home by installing weather stripping around your doors and window sills to keep the cool air inside. Closely monitor your local radio station, TV station, or NOAA Weather Radio or download the Ready Georgia app for the latest information on excessive heat watches and warnings.
