@mkultra27: Probably because he had multiple medical issues and it was his time to go!! As I said in my post, how many people die in a hospital surrounded by medical professionals and how many go to sleep at home and don't wake up? Get a clue and get the facts before you run your mouth!!posted @ Monday, December 3, 2012 - 00:44
Just an FYI for the ignorant folks that want to blame the medical staff for this man's death. The nursing staff at ACCJ do not work for the sherriff's department! They go above and beyond the call of duty to care for people that most of you would not give the time of day to! It is not an easy job but they do it day in and day out most of the time without any thanks or acknowledgement! To them they are patients and not inmates. Some people have medical issues that are beyond the control of the healthcare providers caring for them. How many folks die in hospitals every day surrounded by medical personnel? Until you know the facts mkultra27, you should keep your big mouth shut because one of these people may one day save your behind!!posted @ Monday, December 3, 2012 - 00:34

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases.
