WHAT’S FACE­BOOK

UP ON

Our friends were talk­ing this week about a fed­eral judge rul­ing against por­tions of Ge­or­gia’s new law crack­ing down on il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion, and about a story of how a dis­abled vet­eran and his fam­ily are hav­ing to move from a sub­ur­ban Au­gusta neigh­bor­hood be­cause the home­own­ers as­so­ci­a­tion had com­plained. You can join the con­ver­sa­tion thread, too, at our Face­book page.

Here’s a sam­pling of com­ments:

If il­le­gal im­mi­grants aren’t pay­ing taxes, it’s the em­ploy­ers fault; not the worker them­selves. The IRS is­sues an ITIN re­gard­less of im­mi­gra­tion sta­tus be­cause both res­i­dent and non­res­i­dent aliens may have Fed­eral tax re­turn and pay­ment re­spon­si­bil­i­ties un­der the In­ter­nal Rev­enue Code. o!

That story on the Vet just brakes my heart:-( and for shame on the Home­own­ers as­so­ci­a­tion. This man fought for all of us and for them to treat him like that just be­cause the house was not large enough well let’s just say is down right RIDICU­LOUS!!!! t!

You can add com­ments to sto­ries on­line at cov­news.com. Here’s a sam­pling of com­ments on a story about the re­cre­ation com­mis­sion clos­ing Turner Lake on Satur­days:

Satur­days?????? why on earth would you close it on Satur­days? that’s when the kids are outta school and would be at the gym. hey evry1noz­its, great idea! Also, i to­tally agree, NC needs a swim­ming pool badly, We have to give these kids some­thing to do, and God knows we don’t have a lot to of­fer, Turner Lake is the only bright spot for the rec dept..
