MYSTERY THREAT: On May 10, a resident of Old Waverly subdivision went to the sheriff’s office to report that he found a note inside his mailbox, where an unidentified person advised him to stop speeding in the neighborhood or they would report him to the sheriff’s office.
The man wanted it documented that someone entered his mailbox without permission.
Just slow down. Now he has to add being a douche to his speeding.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 19:17

To the next mass slaughter of innocent life, maybe at a venue near you.
Do you really care about "mass slaughter of innocent life?" It happens at a venue near me daily and NEVER involves a gun.posted @ Friday, April 19, 2013 - 12:32

So to be clear - you chose to direct your comments to one person who was pointing out the direct references of one commenter as opposed to the other folks on the thread making more pointed and direct comments? Got it, makes tons of sense.
Your comment was the closest to the end of the thread where I was reading. Your defensiveness speaks volumes. What did you call it??? Narrow-minded...thanks for being the example.posted @ Sunday, March 17, 2013 - 10:53
I would like to apologize, but one of my resolutions is to stop saying sorry for things I did not invoke, prompt, or cause. I said nothing about OC in this post; I referred only to the commenter.
Not asking for an apology and I understood your post. Plenty of inferences all the way around in this thread and you chose to defend one. I chose to point out that you should have been more broad in that.posted @ Saturday, March 16, 2013 - 21:57
To infer people outside of Oconee County are not as well off, make less than profitable decisions, or have in some way lessened his/her quality of life because he/she chooses not to live in Oconee shows a very narrow-minded view of life. I work for a Fortune 500 company in Clarke County, I live in Clarke County, my son attends a CCSD high school (by the way, he is in AP and accelerated classes, involved in football, wrestling, and baseball, #14 in his class and on track to graduate at the end of his 11th grade year). Your view of the world is skewed; maybe you should get out of your bubble more often.
Agree 100%...just as it's equally narrow-minded to infer the Oconee Co kids and their parents are uncaring, entitled, drinking, drug users. Maybe you should broaden your statement. Same people each time there is an OC story making the negative comments.
There are plenty of crappy parents and kids in all counties just as there are many outstanding ones. We know many of them on both sides. Good luck and continued success for your son.posted @ Saturday, March 16, 2013 - 12:38

Not a member of his family. Just tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. It happened almost a month ago, he's been arrested....what more do you want? Also, before you talk about an event like this, make sure you know all the facts. FYI...not all the facts were included in the articles about WWH published by the ABH...so really just get over it.
Do enlighten us.posted @ Friday, March 15, 2013 - 19:16

[quote][b]grove600[/b] - If you're visiting someone on the 5th floor of ARMC and have a heart attack, they too will call 911 to transport you to their ER for care. Protocol. It might suck, but it was most likely born from a lawsuit. [/quote]
I dont think this is correct. I have participated in more than one resuscitation on visitors within ARMC and we handled everything internally. Now, if they collapse just outside the ER on the public sidewalk, then an ambulance gets called. We would render aid until the ambulance arrives but would allow them to transport to the ER.posted @ Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 12:12

[quote][b]rtblue[/b] - I could not agree more with the last post. Many of these athletes come from under privileged backgrounds. I'm not sure if this was the case for Flournoy-Smith, but how many times do we see things happen like this? Yes his education is getting paid for, room and board and a food plan. But what does he do if he wants to take a girl on a date? Take her to the food court? I'm not defending his actions but I do believe there should be a stipend for college athletes. I was a college athlete myself and between sports and school there is no time for a part-time job to earn some cash. If the NCAA doesn't recognize this as a problem we will continue to see jerseys being sold, rings, and even petty actions like this to get a little cash in the pocket.
Couldn't disagree more. Maybe she could take him...look at it as an investment in her future.posted @ Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 14:12
I believe you have misunderstood me. There are two things going on with me. First there's a painful sensitivity to loud sounds in my brain due to slight autism. Barking dogs are a particular irritation. I am a big animal lover, especially dogs, even more so dogs I know well. But there comes a point where my brain can no longer tolerate the pain and I succumb to a more primitive self-preservation mode. There have been times when, if somebody had put a gun in my hand, I would have shot a neighbor's dog. I wouldn't have wanted to; I would have been horrified.
With the crying, it's more complex. It also hurts my brain, but as a mother, crying is an insistant message to do something to alleviate the cause. Evidently many mothers don't get the message. That leaves me helpless to help the baby or child that is not mine. Additionally, there is a link to my own past where my crying was not heard nor alleviated. Sometimes I hear fright in a child's cry where the mother's yelling and hitting only frightens the child more. That's another link to my past. It's deeply distressing to me that I can't do anything about it so I have to leave before I attack the mother.
I, too, have much empathy for mothers traveling with small children; been there, done that. It's extremely stressful for them and I would never, ever blame them unless they were making no effort to console their child. Fortunately, I have discovered Cymbalta, a drug that reduces my anxiety and turns down the volume of my entire nervous system so that the pain does not overwhelm me so much.
I did misunderstand your remarks...apologies. And glad you found something to help.posted @ Saturday, February 16, 2013 - 16:21
