When you get a chance, vote again by telling advertisers in the NGN how you feel about the one sided coverage that West, Duncan and Cooper did to us over the years. And the newspaper will do it again.
The local newspaper is part of the problem.

All newspapers, whether local smalltown or large metro area papers editorialize in favor of their chosen candidates for public office.

When you finally grow up and own a newspaper, you can do the same thing. In the meantime, give it a rest. Your candidate for Sheriff won. That's the way it works. Now, find another cause maybe like the smell coming from the turd pond.

If you had been reading the North Georgia News over the last few years ,you would know that the ex editor told us the smell was "Duck Weed" not turds.... Yeah, the NGN wrote that the smell was not feces but duck weed. Really.
Yes the NGN tried to convince the readership that the turds were not the cause.......

Cooper tell theses un educated folks what they are smelling!:)

Yeah, I am watching for the way Langley and NGN will back peddle when Mason pursues the insurance fraud claim on motor boat for UCSO.

Wonder what else he will find as he scrapes the cover up off the records and "tinted windows"...?
Mason always knew the windows were symbolic of a deeper problem at the UCSO. He also knew that most folks take off their sun glasses at night.

I have watched Several officers from Union and Towns county as they left for jail, some are still out on 20 year sentence appeals.

Watched as local superior court judges were snatched off the bench.
Watched as powerful local politicians families went to jail and story never made local paper.

Charles Duncan was writing for Gainesville paper and did write the story for Gainesville Times. But it has never run in North Georgia News.

I wonder what just one honest man can do?

I for one am hoping for good things from the new Sheriff. After the total mess he has taken over, he will need all the help and support he can get. Best of luck to you Sheriff Mason.

As I ventured to town this morning, I met 3 or 4 deputies driving their vehicles. For the first time in a very long time, I was actually able to identify the deputies driving 2 of the vehicles. I'm not partial to Scott or Mack either way but it looks like Mack has already started making good on his political claims.

Boy I sure am glad I have one friend left in this town. I don't know why people hold it against me for taking all I can get and giving them nothing. That is the American Way. Just look at my good buddy Obama. Don't you think he is so cute twisting that ass up the gangway to fly off to some place most people can only dream about. He works so hard at sticking it to the American people. I want to be just like him,.

Way to get off the subject to make your ignorant statement. You have to come up with a better segway to make you bigotted point. Your just to obvious. Typical of the right wing losing their grip on those citizens with half a brain.

I think we should run on less deputies. The whole department should/could be run on less folks. They did not have anybody working. They were all just riding the clock. No one could run a business like it was being run.
Trim it all down, that is what I have had to do to my business and most everyone I know has done the same.
Too much for too long.
Fire dept needs to be next.
Dark windows on an emergency SUV? Give me a break.
Need to get the fat ass out of the fire dept.
I would love to see that bunch work at real world jobs.....

Just saw a marked sheriffs car with dark tint, oh noooooo. It was a dodge station wagon and I hope this silly bs is not high on Sheriff Mason's to do list if it is he should go back to the Highway Patrol and leave real law enforcement to LEOs.

It's not only high on the list, it's TOPS on his list. Closely behind window tint, is motorcycles in the Suches area. A "sho''nuff" task force is surely needed to rid the world of that "nuisance" as he called it. A used boat and outboard motor is last on the list. Everything else seems to be irrelevant.

As with any administration change, decisions are prioritized. Postings that some tint removed is a positive step forward. The day to day running of the dept. as well as addressing other matters is what Mason needs to do. Postive motion starts with baby steps forward. No matter what the outcome, naysayers will always fill these postings. Let Mason and his team move forward, quickly eliminating the negatives and building on the postives.
