[quote][b]The Oracle of the ABH[/b]"If you want to read a mind numbing, local case which demonstrates the lengths to which the power company was willing to go to avoid having to purchase excess power generated by consumers, run down,

Greensboro Lumber Co. v. Georgia Power Co., 643 F.Supp. 1345 (N.D.Ga. 1986)

    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.
