Accident victim Cheyenne Sauls remembered as happy, friendly

I would like to know the outcome for the others that were arrested, like the grandfather and the liquor store owner.  (May 15, 2014 | post #105)

DC Jail receives commendation for outstanding inmate medi...

Too bad someone had to die for this award. I woner what Rodney Graham's family thinks of this? Well, at least they have overhauled the heathcare system at the jail so that hopefully nothing like that has to happen again. But, an award? Ugh! DOUGLAS COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT RECEIVES JAIL COMMENDATION FROM MEDICAL ASSOCIATION OF GEORGIA The Medical Association of Georgia’s Committee on Correctional Medicine awarded the inaugural Herman E. Spivey, MD, Award for Excellence to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department for its quality of inmate health care. Sheriff Phil Miller accepted the award and called it a “great honor and very proud day for himself, the Sheriff’s Department and the citizens of Douglas County”. The Committee on Correctional Medicine is dedicated to improving inmate health care. Some of its members work as responsible physicians in jails and prisons. The physicians, along with a support team from the Medical Association of Georgia, conduct surveys every three years on the health section of all State prisons, several private ones, and numerous County jails. The Committee accredits facilities using standards developed by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. In order for the jail health care unit to be accredited, it must meet 100 percent of 33 essential standards and 85 percent of 29 important standards. The Medical Association of Georgia felt it important to recognize outstanding compliance and superior health care to inmates. The award was established in 2012 and named in honor and memory of Dr. Herman E. Spivey who practiced Family Medicine in Summerville, Georgia, for 48 years, was the physician for the Chattooga County Jail, and who was a long-time and valuable member of the Committee on Correctional Medicine. The award was named at the suggestion of Dr. Marc Wall, who attended the presentation with his grandson, Caleb Chambers. Mrs. Sue Spivey, widow of Dr. Spivey, and Kathy Bridges, daughter, attended the presentation and noted that the family was “extremely humbled” by the award name designation. Mr. Clyde Maxwell, Jr., the Director of Correctional Medicine for the Medical Association of Georgia, was also present. The award was presented to Sheriff Miller by Dr. Patton Smith, Chairman of the Committee, who noted that the Spivey Award will be given “only when achieved”, to which Sheriff Miller responded that he is proud of the accreditation and achievement. Dr. Smith and Sheriff Miller both thanked the Jail’s correctional staff and CorrectHealth, which operates the jail medical facility. They applauded CorrectHealth’s “professionalism in difficult circumstances”. CorrectHealth was represented by Dr. Carlo Musso, President; Deborah Eason, RN; and Susie Hatfield, RN.  (Aug 9, 2013 | post #1)

Library staff

Just like any other place most of them are nice and very helpful but there are a few that refuse to help. If your local branch doesn't have the book you want, which they probably don't, you can get it sent from a library in the Pines system that does have the book. It may take a while depending on the popularity of the book. It's also really easy to do this online without having to go to the library until the book is actually there which saves time.  (Aug 8, 2013 | post #3)

Food Network cancels Paula Dean

Yes, when school is in, I hear this word every day, all day and no one gets disciplined for it. I'm not in charge of discipline but I figure that there are a couple of reasons for this. One is that it is not used in a derogatory manor. They aren't calling someone a name, they aren't putting someone down. It is just a synonym for brother, bro, man. Second, is that it is prolifically and ubiquitously used, if we disciplined every time we heard this word, then we'd be doing nothing all day except disciplining students for using the word. You have to pick your battles and this doesn't seem to merit much if any action. About the most that would happen is someone saying "watch your language." I'm not saying what is right or wrong, i'm just letting you know the reality of how this word is used among young people. Some would say it isn't the same word at all because the word that they are using has an A on the end insead of an ER.  (Jul 3, 2013 | post #52)

Food Network cancels Paula Dean

I think that this whole thing is just ridiculous. I hate the word and don't use it but I grew up hearing it every day by my family, neighbors, pretty much all of the white people I was around. Sometimes it was used in a derogatory manor and sometimes just as a description. When I was in my 20s I lived by a white man who was 101 years old. He didn't know anyone's name he gave everyone a descriptive nickname. I was "fat girl" another neighbor was "cripple boy," because he walked with a limp and then there was the "n@@ger woman." He loved that lady, she brought him dinner every day. Now, as a teacher in College Park I hear it used every day all day. It simply means a dude. A male as opposed to a female. It doesn't mean a black male it means a male of any ethnicity. It is not a curse word to them. It isn't derogatory. And yes white and Hispanic kids use it too. Food tv the media and all the sponsors have blown this whole thing way out of proportion.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #46)

ObamaCare Bad For Who ?

I just spent the last 5 weeks in and out of Wellstar Douglas Hospital. (I finally got a diagnosis or Sarcoidosis) The ER is a complete zoo. They do their best, they are just sooo busy with soooo many patients. One of the problems is that everyone that is admitted to the hospital has to go through the ER. Each time I was admitted, I was at my doctor's office first, who then sent me to the ER, who then admitted me. It used to be that your doctor could call the hospital and have you admitted without going through the ER but not anymore.  (May 2, 2013 | post #6)

Best / Worst Restaurants In Douglasville

There isn't much to choose from around here. I always liked Gumbeax's until the last time we went. The service was terrible and the food wasn't as good as usual. I also like Outback and Olive Garden. That's about it.  (Apr 29, 2013 | post #18)
