Who do you support for State House in Georgia (District 8...

I saw the big Jack Lance truck sitting at Meek's Park last Saturday during the Sorghum Festival. It is illegal to post campaign materials on government property. Makes me sick that he did it anyway and it also makes me wonder what other rules he is breaking and being allowed to break. Lamar Paris, the sole commissioner in Union County, allowed Lance to park his truck there on county property. Finally, just look at where Lance's financial backing is coming from. These good ole boys and Union County elites have had a hold on Union County for generations. Do you still want that?  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #2)

And you're going to be on the phone w/ the Gov.'s ofc. tomorrow, right? If you know, TELL THEM! We all have to work together! What each of us KNOWS, we must tell. We can't testify to rumor. Landline phone lines are ok if you're scared; cell phones are terrible.  (Aug 19, 2007 | post #893)

So, let's focus...should a new forum be started and, if so, I think Old Timer should head it up. We all need to come together, as curious has said, and seriously discuss the potential candidates. It seems this forum is turning into a chat room, although there's still some good info coming through.  (Aug 16, 2007 | post #627)

I just watched the video on WSB's website. It appeared to me that Russell was backing up to clear the car (I believe it was a white SUV) that was parked on the side facing DQ, not trying to run over the reporter. Now, I know I'm not the only one who's ever parked in that tight little corner and it's hard to get around in that spot to the left of the front door. Moreover, he was driving a long-wheel base truck, not a tiny, little, compact car. You'll notice if you watch the video critically that you're being influenced by the reporter's words. I believe Russell is just trying to protect his family. He's a stand-up guy for that, if you ask me! Sometimes, in those situations, it's hard not to do something others will critique as stupid. I've done it myself. Instead of judging them up one side and down the other, we should, instead, all pray for the Hedden's (and even the Osborn's, Eller's and all others involved in that issue). We've all been through these kinds of "seasons " in our lives; we need to remember how it felt, put ourselves in their shoes.  (Aug 16, 2007 | post #217)

Despite rumors, Towns County Sheriff not resigning

He "is tied into the corruptness and is afraid of being exposed." He's been made aware; nothing's ever been done. In fact, when he's been approched in the past, he runs and tells who said so and the admin at the sheriff's ofc. make the person miserable....somet imes they even disappear.  (Aug 15, 2007 | post #48)

Deputy Charged in Drive-by Kills Self

They can and will pay off jurors if possible; it is my opinion this corruption goes on up into high-level gov't (perhaps "they" can keep it to just this incident, but the investigation needs to be ongoing). I agree, we do need a change of venue and no one needs to know where the trial will be held. So how do we accomplish this?  (Aug 15, 2007 | post #131)

I agree, Slow Hand. Let's have those names, but make sure you have the proof or, at least, the facts so others can help you make the case. Otherwise, it's rumor.  (Aug 15, 2007 | post #115)

John Deere, thank you so much for the encouragement and I pray Hiawassee will start to ask questions and put all the pieces of the puzzle together. The problem, however, is that local law enforcement is heavily involved. You can't go to them b/c if you know too much or they'll start covering up their tracks so no one else will figure it out, or, worse still, you'll commit suicide. We've been screaming for years and people just think we're crazy, as the stolen heavy equipment and "evidence " stored in someone's barn gets moved before anybody else finds out. Relevant info faxed to the GBI is forwarded to the local GBI investigator (at that time), who takes it directly to the sheriff and says, "this person knows," then that person's life is threatened when the KKK shows up at his house! You see, the corruption runs deep! And those who've talked before are tired of wasting their breaths! First, we must have a new sheriff and WE CANNOT JUST CHANGE THE NAME; IT'S GOTTA BE A TOTAL AND COMPLETE OVERHAUL! Once the citizens are not scared anymore, things will begin to change. The rotten apples will begin to fall off the tree! P.S. It's my understanding, Towns County has a new GBI investigator--not the same one I mentioned earlier. Additionally, I understand he's furious over all this!  (Aug 15, 2007 | post #517)

T'was more than just a fight between Eddie and Clinton. Apparently, Eddie put some false things in Clinton's personnel file and then tried to use that in the POST investigation where Eddie tried to get Clinton's certification revoked. I do know that the state attorney general's office commended Clinton for DOING THE RIGHT THING, but neither POST nor the AG did anything to Eddie, even after Clinton presented them w/ hard evidence (hours of audio taped conversation w/ Eddie). In the face of adversity, Clinton always does THE RIGHT THING! Clinton's in the phonebook. You must also know the sisters' parents. His wife's dad is the building inspector for Towns County. He'd know how to get up w/ him.  (Aug 15, 2007 | post #511)

Have you not read Hindu's post about that already? An FBI agent was HERE investigating that crap. Somebody from the US ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE TOLD HIM TO STOP HIS INVESTIGATION! Ask Chris Clinton about that, too! He was privy to that investigation.  (Aug 14, 2007 | post #38)
