My wife and I are both incensed to hear that Hall County is planning to spend $3 million on the first two segments of a bicycle and walking path. We understand that the federal government is to pay $2.4 million of this, with the remaining $600,000 coming from the Georgia government and Hall County's SPLOST.

What are our county commissioners thinking with all the talk about our federal government having to borrow 40 cents for every dollar they spend, and with their own closing of parks and libraries because they can't pay for them?
