@SilencedBlue15:

I retired from active duty and now teach college. I also conduct traffic safety research and write federal traffic safety grants. I am on the Board of Directors and I am the law enforcement representative for the Best Highway Safety Practices Institute. So, I guess I am active at age 70.  What I hope to do is light a fire under younger officers to find a better way to do their job. We (law enforcement) are more effective when citizens display voluntary compliance with the law. Developing effective traffic safety or public safety campaigns is very difficult. I know this for a fact because I've been involved in several. I never considered myself an expert although I have been deemed to be a qualified "expert" in Court. A lot of people out there are smarter than me. But, I have been successful. Thanks for asking Blue.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
