North Georgia News Editor Ken West stabbed Norman in the back. I have never met him, but that this tells me what I need to know about Kenneth West. Kenneth West, Linda Pittman and David Hopkins are 3 people this community would be better off without. According to the post, Kenneth let Norman work 23 hours without sleep and then fired him after he finished the newspaper. That is the most disgusting part of this whole thing. He used him and then trashed him. That is not right. Who would have thought the owner of our small town newspaper was so heartless and ruthless. I hope Norman burns his a$$ with a wrongful termination suit.

Nobody is buying it. When you begin to lash out like this, it spreads to the courthouse. It is time to be quiet and move on.

Enjoy your new house. Perhaps write a book. Quietly.

Norman Cooper,
I am one person in this county that has no sympathy for your dilemma that you have caused yourself. You have for years published attacks on my, and my wifeís character, until people that we have done nothing to, think we are terrible. You published headlines in the paper accusing us of being dummies over the asphalt scandal. You knew your information was false and you did it anyway because it helped the power people at the time. The honest thing would have been to interview Gene Simpson and I, but that would have taken a reporter with scruples, which you have never had.
Your slanted bias news has caused me and my family untold grief and you obviously thought it was funny. Your attack with your car on me and my Granddaughters was the actions of a sick man. Your reporting about The UCCBC was for one purpose only; to break up a watchdog group that had only one goal, to protect the citizens of Union County. The ironic part is that if you used your talent to expose the obvious favoritism and corruption you would have been a hero of the citizens. Letís see if Lamar and the bankers pull you out from under the bus. I bet they might though, at least pay you to keep your mouth shut; the decent thing would be to expose what you know, but that would be a side of you I have never seen.
If Kenneth West didnít know what you were up to and believed your manipulation of any opposition to the powers, he must be brain dead. The UCCBC collected several hundred names trying to get you fired because of the garbage you were spewing about us. All he did was ignore us. Kennethís refusal to put my wife and my 50th anniversary in our only paper was the ultimate insult to us and not easy to forget. Same with my book that I worked 12 years on. Nothing!
In post #50 under ďNorman Cooper exposedĒ I predicted you would be thrown under the bus and look what happened. Your old buddy Lamar will rescue you, donít you think? Especially after you did him that hatchet job on Linda about George Anderson. Do all the looking you want about the posters that wrote things about you, just remember if they are true there is nothing wrong with that.
The really hard part for me is to forgive you as my Christian beliefs dictate me to do, but I know my Savior will be the real Judge and handle things in His own way. Sonny Boyer

I worked at the newspaper when it was in the old building. Kenneth was mean and nasty, cussed his mother and sister in front of other employees and treated people bad. I don't see how Norman stayed so long. Maybe he can find a good boss to work for. Good luck Norm.

Yeah, he was exposed. But you were exposed too. We all got to see what you really were. And we're all still laughing at you. Has mommy given you your allowance this week, little man?

David - I Exposed you as a liar in court and the judge DENIED your motion and the judge GRANTED my motion.

David, ask Kenneth, who sat behind you in court, how terminating me worked out for him. Let me know what your buddy says.

Norm, I was the last man in the courtroom. You were on the left, so I wet to the right. I am guessing that the reason Ken and Charles were on my side was that they were trying to sit far away from you. The guy that fired you - and the guy that replaced you :)

Why were they there anyway? I didn't ask them.

PS.... everyone should also know two more facts: The only people in your corner were Lamar & Dinah Paris (the guy you are self proclaimed spokesperson for)

And Norm.... a MOTION is not the same as the entire case. The judge ruled that YOU posted the material. YOU as an anonymous coward, using Ken West's newspaper computers, made up stories about an innocent man and claimed he was a sex offender / child molester.

And Ken FIRED you for it. Tossed you aside. The only person who has remained totally loyal to you is Lamar Paris. He's your buddy :) And you loyally defend him!

Uh, my motion was granted. Your motion was denied. You dismissed the case in humiliating defeat. Learn to count, there were three people sitting on my side.

No, the judge did NOT RULE that I posted anything. Give the date of the ruling and give us quotes from that ruling or from hence forth be known as the liar you are.

The Judge asked you if you had ever seen hen's teeth. You said Yes. Then he made you look like a fool by telling you in open court your request had a much chance as finding hen's teeth.

You did not ask them why they were there? From where I sat, it looked like you and him were having a nice little chat. Thought ya'll were members of the BFF Society.
Norm got fired

The TRUTH is Norm Cooper you started this.
You went on TOPIX and made serious accusations that were not true trying to ruin David's reputation.
David did track you down and found out that you were the person writing behind all the screen names.
You were fired
David did take you to court.
What you do not know is that David did not give up the fight. There were several people and I mean several, that got together and discussed this. WE ASKED DAVID TO DROP THE LAWSUIT and NOT GO ANY Further. We felt you being fired was enough.
I know David might regret us asking him to do this but WE felt the firing was enough punishment.
All this would not have happened if you had not wrote those awful things.
It's OVER! It's the PAST. You are a smart person. You know a lot. Go Write the book. Write down everything thing you know. Save it, publish it, what ever you want, but write it.
David has been trying to tell you to focus on this for months.
You know what is going on in Union County, it is not going to remain in Union County.
Just like me having to turn over the documents. They took nothing I have written, only documents, audio tapes, video tapes, NGN papers and George Andersons emails.
Drop the past work on the future. You just might have a great come back. Remember, A real reporter writes both sides of a story with facts to back it up.
It's a new day! Get busy.
Short responses.
David files suit.
David says Topix offered him $1 million to settle, but he turned it down. LIE.
Topix wins in court, David loses.

David get lawyer to move suit to Union.
Norm contacts Davids lawyer, goes see David's lawyer.
Next week, David's lawyer dismisses two other defendants. I am the only one left.

Linda puts David's suit on website.
Linda DOES NOT put Norm's answer on website.
So much for your hypocritical statement " writes both sides of a story"

David files more garbage
Norm answers garbage

David makes more lies on topix
Linda makes more lies on topix

Norm files a motion
David files a motion

Court date set

Norm shows up. three people behind him
David shows up with you, Sonny, Laurie, Kenneth, Charles behind him

Norm prevails in court in pointing out numerous flaws in David's suit.
Judge GRANTS Norm's motion
Judge DENIES David's motion

David goes on topix claiming he can still get $100,000 and my house

David dismisses suit, thus surrendering. The side that surrenders is the loser.
It matters not why he dropped it, it matters not who discussed it with him.
It only matters that he would not have won in a jury trial, so he surrendered.
Those who surrender are the loser.

Your accusations are not true and if you read the answer that you did not post you would know this.

You want to pick at one comment, that did NOT identify David in anyway and that was retracted LONG before any court documents were filed.

But, you have lied about me and several others by name. No arrests, no indictments, no charges, no investigations, looked like a fool after calling tv investigative reporter and sit silent while being called a liar in a public meeting that you asked people to show up for,

Convicted Felon David, not even a resident, yells corruption of everybody and everything.
No arrests, no indictments, no charges, no investigations,

Firing was not punishment. Firing turned out to be blessing. I have lived a great life. Turns out it was a blessing in disguise. Genesis 50:20 As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good

Worked out Great For Me - Movies, TV shows, Award winning magazine www.unioncountymag.com
Maybe you should ask Kenneth how that worked out for him.

To the statement: You know a lot.
You and David have NO clue where to look for the REAL stuff. You two pcik at worthless pine needles that will reap nothing and you are missing the giant trees.

You said. "It's OVER! It's the PAST." Not by a long shot. You have had your fun. Now, Shortly my vengeance against you begins.
