FreeSpeech for 02-24-10

The last three health inspection grades for the Fayette County Jail are 99, 97 and 100. I can’t find another eating establishment in Fayette County with an average this high. What are my options if I want an extra clean place to eat out and don’t want to go to jail?

Fayetteville and Fayette County, please return the traffic signals to “on demand” instead of how they have been set now. The reasoning of timing for the crosswalks is a load of fertilizer. No one uses those “crosswalks to nowhere.” Let them be set to “on demand” instead of tying up traffic, even at 4 in the morning.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

For everyone who is tired of sitting in traffic at the light on Ga. Highway 85 and Summit Point (south of Fayetteville), contact the DOT at www.dot.state.ga.us. Follow the “contact us” in the top right corner and it will take you to an email webpage. Let’s get together and get this traffic light timing changed.

Loved Thomas R. Henry’s observations (Opinion page, Jan. 27) on the unnecessary crosswalks that have sprung up all over Georgia, not just in Fayette County. Also, has anyone addressed Jerry Elder’s timely question for “someone to explain why we have crosswalks with electronic crossing guides at several locations in Fayette County?” Again, I have observed these “crosswalks to nowhere” in a lot of small towns that I have visited already in Georgia, and I suspect just about ALL towns in Georgia have them, or will get them. If they were intended to help pedestrians get across busy intersections, then I challenge anyone even in good physical condition to get across Ga. Highway 74 at Tyrone Road in the electronic time allotted of 60 seconds. Further, the narrow concrete lanes for pedestrians will not allow a golf cart to maneuver through them as I have already seen, and hampers large trucks from making turns easily. Waste is waste, but hopefully some Georgia people were employed installing these things — the only redeeming feature I can see. An explanation by one of our politicians or commissioner would seem to be in order.

For years, I have received portions of individuals’ personal medical records from our local hospital and area doctors on my fax machine. Sometimes, I get several records at once. Each time, I notify the sender and destroy the confidential reports. Yet, they keep coming. I can’t even leave my fax machine loaded because they exhaust both paper and ink. And with every incident, I’m issued warnings that I’ll be hung, shot at sunrise or burned at the stake if I reveal any of these private documents. Here’s my question: Would I be sentenced to perform 12 months of hard housekeeping at Jordan Sales and Salvage if I forwarded these medical records to whom they belong, the patient? Not that I’d do that, but it is a good question.

Freedom of Speech — Yes. Feb 2, 2010, McIntosh/Starr’s Mill basketball game. We might consider “a time and place for everything.” I’m sure the kids were just playing around in the name of school spirit. But, my heart and chest just didn’t have a good feeling after the National Anthem. Was it patriotism and spirit in the wrong “time and place.” Maybe I’m “too sensitive,” in regards to disrespect and rudeness. Just because “Johnny has done it” doesn’t make something right. Why not sing the school’s fight song or give a rousing cheer after the National Anthem is completed instead of changing “Brave” to a school’s mascot? Both our country and a school can be given proper respect and spirit. Free speech is what we are hearing since Carol’s article. It would be interesting to hear comments of the troops and Frances Scott Key in the 1800s. We should all be “passionate,” sensitive,” patriotic,” and have a “spirit” in this “crazy world.” I appreciate Carol’s article. The National Anthem is a challenging song to sing. I get choked up each time I sing it. I’m proud of the girl who volunteered to sing, and, yes, an apology is due. It’s hard for me to understand why the McIntosh PTSO president thinks she doesn’t deserve one. Isn’t it wonderful God made us all different? We are blessed to be in America, the land of the free. God bless us all.

When will high schools wake up and start banning water bottles brought from home? Kids are filling water bottles with vodka and getting loaded at school, getting drunk and getting hurt. They bring them to sports events, as well as school. I am not sure if this is leading to the annual ticker of high school pregnancies or not, but someone needs to get with the program.

Has it ever occurred to anyone that perhaps a county, including Clayton and Fayette, by the way, doesn’t need both a sheriff’s department AND a police department? I’ve lived in PTC for 25 years, moving here from Maine where we lived for 12 years, New Hampshire for a year and 5 years in Texas before that. In none of those places did the counties require both a police force AND a sheriff’s department. Historically, the police have been responsible for public safety in organized areas like cities and towns, while sheriff’s departments were responsible for unincorporated areas of the county, mostly rural areas. If we eliminated the county police departments, we would be eliminating a lot of redundancy, since all the cities and towns within these counties already have their own police departments. I realize this is somewhat of a paradigm shift for the law enforcement culture in Georgia. That said, we could probably realize some synergy by beefing up the sheriff’s departments with redundant police officers but the biggest savings would seem to be in administrative overhead.

President Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Admiral Mike Mullen want to change the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for homosexuals in the military so gays can serve openly. The Democrats indicated they will slip this new policy into the military appropriation bill to make it hard to vote down. This is a mush-headed idea. Why would we fix something that’s not broken? Changing this policy will make the armed forces weaker, not stronger. It will adversely affect good order and discipline, cohesion and troop morale. Add gay officers and non-commissioned officers, who won’t be respected, to the mix and the problem is compounded with a dramatically weakened leadership corps. If the skills of a homosexual person are needed by the military, then they should be hired as an independent contractor. But openly gay people should not be forced down the military’s throat. Can you imagine the graffiti that will appear on latrine walls if Obama’s homosexual policy goes into effect: “Call Captain Gates if you want a good time, anytime”? This is crude and not good and we need to stop it before it starts by preventing the change in policy the Democrats want. Congress should give Secretary Gates and Admiral Mullen a vote of no-confidence and ask for their resignation.

I am thoroughly disgusted with veterinarians. How dare they be so uncaring when it comes to the lives of your beloved pets? They give you an “estimate” to treat your animal and if you can’t pay it up-front, they tell you then maybe you’ll need to put your animal down. That’s their thinking. Who, when people are working so hard just to keep their homes and vehicles, and even jobs, in these horrific economic times, has the money to ante up $400 or more? How dare they? If anyone wants to go into the medical profession, I’d go with being a veterinarian. They don’t have to deal with filing claims with an insurance company and they can legally tell you to put your family member down if you can’t pay up-front. How many doctors can do that?

I thought that when Eric Imker stood up in front of the City Council and asked them to start to look at the reductions that need to be made to the city budget, the reactions from the council and city management staff that were present all seemed to be thinking, “What next?” Here is a councilman who takes the side of the taxpayer, and because we don’t know how to manage, we use tax increases to solve our poor managing skills. Keep on the people’s side, Eric; we will support you.

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland should be booted out, but he won’t. The Tea Party guy has no chance.

To the person who was upset at the “geese eradication event” at Whitewater Creek Country Club, where’s your humanity, sensitivity, and compassion when you buy your beef, chicken, and fish in the grocery store?

Never have I been so disappointed in an article on the front page of The Citizen as I was when I read Mr. Nelms’ article on the school budget increases relative to student enrollment. I thought the objective of journalistic reports was to report the facts and allow the reader to draw their own conclusions. At best, this article belonged on the editorial page, particularly in light of how poorly the analysis was done. First, in Mr. Nelms’ analysis of the “feast of funding” we enjoyed, Mr. Nelms failed to account for the inflationary impact on the budgets over this period of time. And although he did include the comptroller’s comments in the article he failed to take any of the non-instructional mandates that the board has faced out of his calculations to even attempt to give the reader a fair picture of what the true increases might have been that may be attributed to student population change. In addition, the basis of his comparison is also in question. Who’s to say that the 2000 budget was a proper basis for comparison? How does Georgia compare in expenditures as a function of student numbers compared to other states with much better achievement results? Have we not been playing catch up in student achievement and haven’t we made strides in Fayette County achievement results over the past 10 years? I, for one, relocated to Fayette County three years ago, bringing my business and my family here to this county, primarily on the reputation of its public school system. I won’t say I agree with every decision made by the school board over that period of time, but I can certainly support them in their attempts to make the best decisions they can in this very difficult economic time. Perhaps Mr. Nelms can claim he foresaw the future better than anyone else did three to five years ago when plans and budgets were put in place, but I think it’s time we put the past behind us and focus on what needs to be done at this time and for these kids.

It sounds as if the University in your click here (above) is doing about the same thing as is Coulter.
Personally, I wouldn't walk 50 feet to listen to anything more she has to say, but for those who wish to do so, they should be able to do that.

Things that she and the Tea people espouse (and of course Beck) are actually good for our country!!!
They show us clearly what we would face in the event we were to elect such people. However we will have to be careful of trojan horses they back, such as Alaskan Governors and anyone from South Carolina or Fayette County.

Well, he was a community organizer and socialist

An excellent speaker who rose to become head of the National Socialist Party during a worldwide recession among a population that had well over 10% unemployment. He demonized the old rulers of Germany and had great appeal to the masses and was in power for a long time.

His faults - only 2. The whole master race idea and the extermination of the Jews (people who did not look like him or his followers) was insane - like the man himself. But that didn't begin until after he had been in power for 12 years he began to think of himself as invincible. And he really had no serious military background (Corporal in WWI) so he had no place running a war that quickly had 2 fronts that split his efforts.

Here's something very strange...

Police: Drunk Pa. man tried to revive dead opossum

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — Police say they charged a Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen trying to resuscitate a long-dead opossum along a highway.

State police Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe, of Brookville, near the animal Thursday along Route 36 in Oliver Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The trooper says one person saw Wolfe kneeling before the animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance. He says another saw Wolfe attempting to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Levier says the animal already had been dead a while.

The Associated Press could not locate a home telephone number for Wolfe.

Contrary to popular belief

My neighbors and I actually encourage, support and buy coffee/breakfast for the police officers that monitor the four way stop in our neighborhood.

Yes we bribe them to stop, ticket and arrest if need be, the idiots that think stop signs are ‘optional’.

I’ve personally supplied coffee and hash browns for several PTCPD officers to stake out our four way stop.

If you have a problem with that, stop at the damn stop sign. (P.S. soccer moms are the usual suspects)

Peachtree City is experiencing a rise in the crime rate and possible budget cuts for the police department. Maybe now is the time for our police chief to re-direct our officer's efforts away from hiding at the three-way stop signs at Oakmount Dr. & Golf View, Aberdeen Dr. & Golfview Dr., Willow Rd. & Olive Dr., etc., and toward enforcement efforts that actually improve public safety. Stop using our law enforcement officials as the local tax collector! Speaking of three-way stop signs. Can anyone on the City Council explain the need for a stop sign at Olive Dr. & Willow Rd. The road is maybe 200 feet long with one house.

Rhamy - sure I'll be glad to explain the stop sign scam

Back when Lenox was Mayor of our fair city he instituted an employee perk (instead of raises) in an effort to improve morale. In what turned out to be a plan way ahead of it's time, Mr. Lenox named an employee of the month every month. This was based on outstanding service, attendance or just plain sucking up to the boss. The winner received honorable mention in the newsletter and most importantly his or her choice of any public works project. You could get a pot hole filled on your street, trees cut down in the greenbelt to enhance the view, speed bumps or a stop sign. The paving of an entire city street was reserved for the 3 employees of the year which were selected by random draw of the 12 employees of the month plus 1 police officer. That's why when street paving is announced there are always 4 streets named.

Brown didn't know this was happening at first - one of many things the city employees kept from him, although the idea of pretending there was no limo for the mayor and hiding it at the ampitheater for 4 years was a truly inspired scam. Sadly when Johnny Rivers was here last time he thought it was his and took it. But back to the streets, when Brown eventually found out about this award, he named himself employee of the month for several months in a row and got those speed bumps put in Planterra Ridge.

When Logsdon found out about the employee of the year reward he ended it and instead allowed the top 5 contributors to his campaign to name their streets each year, That's why you now see 5 street paving projects announced.

This technique will serve us when when Logsdon becomes Insurance Commissioner because after the Dems in Washington nationalize health care and destroy the insurance companies, only Logsdon will be able to dole out the remaining insurance coverage in Georgia to his friends. Don't take any chances with your health care - donate to Logsdon's campaign today!

Since it highly unlikely Mr. Haddix will need the finds to run for higher office, it would be good to reinstate this very valuable perk for city employees. On important change to make would be allow the employee of the month to use his perk to extend the 4th of July fireworks by 1 minute.

Haddix: Stop Sign

Sign location is determined by State and Federal laws. We have no control over where they must go.

Warnings outnumber tickets and fine collections are down, not up. It is false we use traffic controls as a funding mechanism.

As well police staking out such locations most often are in response to citizen complaints. The area you are talking about is often the source of complaints about speeding.

Are you saying that a "bad" sign" location

can not be removed?

Why is it that the slightest suggestion as to how to better police or fight fires and attend wrecks for our city is given, the rest of the city officials immediately leap to their defense as if they all do their jobs perfectly all of the time?

I think you serve the citizens as a whole, not just the employees!
By the way, most of the time they do a very good job when called upon.

Haddix: Bad Sign

I am saying we cannot remove signs placed according to Federal and State law. In fact we are spending a huge amount of money on replacing signs to simply move them to the 9 current foot requirement.

In this economy we have a lot more important things to fund.

As well signs are placed by Public Works, not the Police Department.

Federal and State laws control a lot more than many people realize. It is a constant frustration to local governments. Examples are the sidewalks and crossings on 74, speed limits, some of the school zones, getting golf carts from one side of a road to the other, sweeping some parking lots more often than is needed and filing out stacks of forms that just go in a file somewhere.

I recently provided a list of State laws that accomplish nothing but cost the city money to one of our legislators.

If you want us to have less employees and spend less money then we need the State and Feds to intrude less into our daily lives in PTC.

This is for "thoroughly disgusted with veterinarians".

What in the world are you thinking? I am a wildlife rehabilitationist and I am an animal lover. But even I understand that it is a BUSINESS. Do you think that veterinarians are government subsidized, receiving government bail outs, or just plain independently wealthy? Yes...they do go into practice because it is something that they love. But NO! They can not offer you credit just because you swear you will pay them. If you think for one minute that your vet would rather see your pet dead than alive you need to find a new vet. Look into a Care Credit card that will offer credit to you for human as well as pet care and you get to pay on time AND the doctor will get paid. Accidents both human and pet happen and it is our job to plan for them. If we don't, we have deal with the fall out. My love for animals is greater than anyone will ever know, but I am a realist. Your family is a necessity and your pets are a luxury. With this economy, maybe, just maybe you may want to think about finding another home for your beloved pet with someone that is more financially able to care for it. With that being said, I want you to know that I have had to make that very same decision in the past and it was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make, but it was the right one for the pet. My favorite saying is "The more I learn about human nature, the more I love animals".

Road Rage

Friday afternoon, my wife was driving home from Atlanta around 12:30. While on the downtown connector, she made a legal lane change. Two lanes over from her was a Tan Ford Ranger, Coweta County Tag # BBT-1161. After she made the lane change, this vehicle came up along side her on the passenger side, flipped her off, pulled in front of her, then moved to her drivers side dangerously close almost hitting her. The driver, some young kid, flipped her off again. He then pulled right in front of her and slammed on the brakes. This occurred right by Turner Field. Luckily for my wife, no one was in the left hand lane and she was able to swerve out of the way. My wife was terrified by this point. As she tried to get away from this person, he kept cutting her off, getting behind her almost making contact several times. My wife tried to get the police, but there were absolutely no units, local or State Patrol anywhere near the area so she was on her own. Thankfully, a tractor trailer happened along that she was able to use to get away from this person and she was able to get into the right hand lane, slow down and stay there while he drove on ahead. This behavior continued until she was almost to Flat Shoals Road past the airport. Finally, this jerk went on his way. And believe me, jerk is extremely nice for what I really want to say. My wife was simply driving home and almost became another Atlanta Highway statistic because some kid has anger issues and shouldn't be allowed to drive. Again, Tan Ford Ranger, Coweta Tag BBT-1161.

First it wasn't Coweta's jurisdiction so they can't do anything. Second, I've tried filing complaints before and unless a cop actually sees the infraction, they don't do anything. I'm really upset about this. It's bad enough that someone is killed on Atlanta highways nearly every day and I worry so much when she is on the road. Knowing that people like this are on the road just makes it that much worse.

oh yes, just wait until the end of the month and the individual officers need to meet the quota that they claim not to have. FYI they call them "contacts" these days. If it doesn't put money in the coffers, it ain't gonna happen. The one notable exception to that rule is, I'm pleased to say, the PTC PD. If you break the law in PTC, no matter what law, the PTC PD is gonna get you. They don't pick and choose the laws that they want to enforce the way many/most LE agencies do.
