Officer Donahue it is great to hear how well you are doing in rehabilitation. I think the memory loss is a good thing for you of that day. You keep working hard and it sounds like your wife is very supporting as I am sure so are your working family. Very inspirational.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 08:24

Thank you Mr. Gundy for helping our officer. Most people would just have stood there and done nothing. Sorry you didn't get whatever position you were going after in the party.

This woman is ignorant. She almost ruined Komen foundation, which is still having fallout from her stupid religious beliefs. We need just one common sense person, don't really care what clan as long as they don't walk, lock in step with the party. Make the right decisions because it is the right thing to do, you never can make everybody happy but that is okay. As long as it was the right decision at the time and for the right reason.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 13:14
It's crazy, is there no one with any common sense to fix some of these problems. 3 Billion over budget? WTH
At work you have goals if you do not reach your goal in the specified time there will be consequences for the shortcomings.
Same senators and congressmen raising hell about the deficit, now they are doing "or else". Best thing we could do is kick anybody out that doesn't play well with others. If they are lock and step they need to go.
Besides the Federal government being to involved the State is too. They pass some stupid laws that we don't even know about. Put it on a ballot and let us vote on it. If Obama wants to do something the Republicans lock up and say hell no, even if it was their idea. Democratic do the same thing when the Republicans come up with something. We have no say in anything.
They make Georgia looks so backwoods, redneck, inbreds. I couldn't blame any company for not want to come here. If you all are proud of them good for you, but I have more pride than that, I research the person not the clan they belong too.
Sorry, didn't mean it to be so long...Have a good day and a blessed weekend.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 13:06

Great story of a woman trying her best to obtain her goals. Wonderful story of how this has spread and all the people that are showing up to help her and asking nothing in return. Light heartening in such a crazy world.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 12:31

Once again some commenter always, always pay more attention to looks than the action/s of the person. This women sent out one very strong message that t.v. ads could never do. Why does it matter what she looks like, her tats, her lips has nothing to do with her actions.
If this surgery news (especially with a actress) can save one girl it paid out in full. She is a strong woman and a role model because she didn't tell women they needed to do it, she showed them, she showed her trust, her self esteem, her dignity that still be intact. I really didn't think it would be that hard for men to understand what she was sacrificing to have a full life with her children. I would think in 2013 we were more educated and further away from bigotry.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:26
@CLM1090: I'll bet she has had full hysterectomy and that is another reason for all the adoptions.
Edit: I just saw some gossip mags on internet referring to probably her having the surgery so who knows. So hopefully she will if she hasn't done it yet.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:04

Damn shame he is that old he want have much time to suffer for what he has done. This is one of those backwoods clinics for the poor. The State is as much to blame for failing to do their jobs they also have blood on their hands.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 07:08
Mrs. Colquitt if you are reading this I am sorry I didn't address you in my earlier comment. It just brought back so many angry feelings because my situation wasn't like yours in all ways but it was some.
Oglethorpe Co. EMS used to be a good department. I am sorry you were treated in such an abusive way by the dispatcher and worse he got away with it. Doesn't surprise me that he was promoted though, that is how it rolls down here.
But one day we will have enough new blood down here and we can force out all that good ole boy attitude and all those special projects that are done just for some of the citizens.
If it is a sinkhole why would you let anyone drive in the lane next to it?posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 12:09
She is impressive with how strong she is in her self esteem to make such a sacrifice. My blessings to her I could only hope I could muster that much courage. Didn't one of the Beauty contestants do the same thing several months ago.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 10:32
To the dad if you are reading this, talk with the Juvenile Judge, probation officer and see if he/she will send her to boot camp. Especially since she has been kicked out of all the schools. She needs it before she ends up dead.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 08:17
When my mother went down her heart was beating barely but she was not breathing. I started breathing for her while 911 was called. When EMS arrived seemed forever but I don't think it was. The EMS person asked me did we want them to resuscitate her. She saw me doing the breathing. They started the bagging. There was two EMS on the ambulance. They kept sitting there, so I asked what the problem was.
I was told they could not transport until someone else arrived to ride in the ambulance. So we had to wait for a volunteer to show up before they started transport. It took approximately another 10 to 15 minutes for a volunteer to show. By the time they put her in the ambulance she coded and they started CPR.
I told them while we was waiting that I could ride in the ambulance because I am CPR certified and basic first responder, nope they wouldn't do that. I understand the liability of allowing someone to ride in the ambulance but to save a life to them was not a good enough reason. Yes it was Oglethorpe County. I placed two calls to EMS because it appeared it was taking way to long. I lost my mother that night.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 07:25
@catman: exactly there has to be camera's in there I would think. Color me surprised if he did bite her for nothing. How would the handler not see that it happened once much less he lunged at her again.posted @ Sunday, May 12, 2013 - 19:14
