Oliver 1 year, 6 months ago on Sheriff's deputy faces DUI charge after wreck

Does anyone know who has to pay for replacing the patrol car? Is a claim filed against the county's insurance policy (which pushes the costs to the taxpayers) or Mr. Matt's policy? It doesn't feel right that the taxpayers should have to pay to replace a patrol car destroyed by Mr. Matt's illegal and poor choices. I don't know the answer and was curious if any of you do know.

Oliver 1 year, 7 months ago on Wilbanks: Amendment could hurt public education

Dot,

"Agree Mack, Wilbanks and his cronies have contributed more to the downfall of public schools than anyone. Oh, yeah the graduating students can take a test but once you past the test on a job you then have to perform.

After 24 years of dealing with Gwinnett Co Schools I can attest that even currently your graduates can not spell. Thanks to phonics."

You might want to edit your post and check your spelling.

Mr. Vernon: "What was that ruckus?" Andrew Clark: "Uh, what ruckus?" Mr. Vernon: "I was just in my office and I heard a ruckus." Brian Johnson: "Could you describe the ruckus, sir?"

Oliver 1 year, 7 months ago on Man accused of stealing dead mother's teaching pension

This guy is a crook. End of discussion about him.

This story is another great example of government ineptness. Why isn't the Teacher's Retirement System doing the same thing the private pension plans (for payout annuities and pension plans) have been doing for years and checking the Social Security Death Master File to see who has died???? Private companies are smart enough to go to this source to find out who has died and thus no longer gets their pension checks. Why doesn't the Teacher's Retirement System do the same thing???

(Maybe the answer is they would do it, but they don't have time because they're stuck waiting in long lines at the government-run DDS)

Oliver 1 year, 9 months ago on POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Johnson, Woodall have opposite reactions to Holder situation

I feel your pain. Despite supporting GA republicans for 20 years, despite GA picking up a House seat, my reward is to be redistricted into the district represented by Hank Johnson, a man well-versed in embarassing himself and consequently the voters in his district.

Oliver 1 year, 9 months ago on Local leaders react to health care ruling

Your inaccurate statement is a half-truth at best. While insurance companies might make decisions regarding coverage they will provide based on a policy purchased by insured, at the insured's choice, this small, anecdotal scenario you paint, in no way encompasses all of the health-care decisions made on a daily basis. There are many instances of people exercising their choice (you are pro-choice aren't you???) without the influence insurance companies. Try doing that under Obama-care.

p.s. is a super pack something akin to a wolf pack except it's run by the Koch brothers rather than a PAC run by George Soros???

And I, for one, welcome our new heath-care overlords.

I'm sure this will be another finely-run government bureaucracy. I'm sure with all that money sloshing around, the highly ethical government employees will produce many more examples of high standards of ethics and decision making. I look forward to the day when the federal government, all in the interest of reducing health-care costs, begins to tell me what I can and can't eat, as well as how much of it I can eat. I look forward to them mandating exercise. I also cheer the forth-coming panels, mistakenly call death-panels by some, which will be making all my health-care decisions for me and will decide for me when it no longer makes economic sense for me to continue receiving health-care.
