I am not surprised to hear that Macon is not what you are cracking it up to be. Probably because of all the crack that gets dealt there. Yeah, I live in statesboro, nice but not wonderful. I used to live in Houston, TX. Third largest city in the US and I felt safer there than I do in Statesboro. I got gas at Macon once. ONCE.

The women are great, not all of them, and there very hard to find being middle georgia doesnt have many places to meet women besides a couple clubs, but there would really be no need to get rid of him now, it would cost the city, and his term is four months from being over, so it really doesnt matter.

I am considering moving to Macon from Cleveland Ohio and everytime I visit my family in Macon I have a wonderful time. Cleveland is definitely worse than Macon on the crime side and the unemployment rate. i am a newlywed looking for change if anyone has any suggestions for my husband and i please respond.

Mia X I will send you a portfolio and refer you to some post about Macon, that have people thinking of moving to Macon. Also there is more great news coming out of Bibb County. Bibb COunty was just named one of the best communities for young people to live and gorw up in. Out of 750 counties & 300 cities in all 50 states, Bibb County ranked in the top 100. This is great for organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, the Big Brother/Big Sister program, and many other non-profit organizations in Bibb County, they are eligble for $300,000 grants. The award was given by Amerca's Promise Alliance a collaborative network that facilitates volunteer action for children and youth. Founded after the Presidents' Summit for America's Future in 1997. Cities such as Charleston SC, Birmingham AL, Arlington TX, Little Rock AR, Newport News VA, and Sacremento CA were also included in the top 100.
The judging panel including people such as U.S. Chamber of Commerce President, UnitedWay President and others. All this information can be found at the two links listed below.

I think you may want to redirect your technical question to one of the general forum topics that may better apply.

Although the Macon subforum is typically not too active, there have been some very strange postings in here the last few months. . What's the deal?
