I met a number of the volunteers who were gathered outside the Justice Center for this celebration. How I wished I had driven to court so I could possibly talk my way into taking the tour, meeting more of the wonderful people from our community who have been working with the inmates, volunteering their services, and the inmates who work with the dogs, live with them 24/7. Hope the GDP will write more, promote this more. It is such a marvelous program.

Sad and disgusting news. Released on a low $ bond. Who in the world would post bond for this perverted woman??
Gwinnett Public Library doesn't have it yet. I hope 'yet' is the operative word.
Josh wrote a wonderful article about my daughter's Little Free Library. I wish Josh great success with this book.
I hope someone will explain how lightning can cause a gas leak. I find that very scary.
Prayers and thanks for your service to all our firefighters and police.
I agree with my Mayor that it will be tough, but very happy that work will be starting soon. Also happy to read that Hwy. 20 will be widened to three lanes in each direction from S. Lee St. to 985.
I get Gwinnett Mugs daily, covering arrests in zip 30518. Buford and Sugar Hill areas had NO ARRESTS for DUI's over New Years Eve. Surprising to me. Kudos to the GA State Patrol and the Gwinnett County police for their dedicated efforts.
Wonderful story, lovely way to start my day. This is such a wonderful program and all that participated have my thanks. So great that the $5,000 donation from Suzanna's Kitchen in Duluth allowed another 50 kids to participate.
Tim, I have seen some very effective plantings of leylands, but thousands of examples of improperly planted ones. There should be warning labels on the plant tags, in BOLD TYPE, spelling out their potential size. Example: neighbor next door planted about 1.5' off of the property line. We only have about 12' between our homes and the property line. The result would be that these conifers would grow up to 10' onto my property. The root competition severely limits other plantings other than shallowly rooted ground covers. Happy ending to my story is that they were all taken out two weeks ago by the new owners, at a very large but fair price.
Homeowner associations would be wise to add restrictive covenants re growing these. They do not make good neighbors as they are almost always planted way too close to the property line.
Per the article, they have been paying utility bills at the previous location, which ran very high because of the age of the school. The utilities should be more reasonable on Commerce Drive, as the buildings are newer.
This is a very unfortunate situation. One of the residents says she is wearing ear plugs to sleep. This could lead to a dangerous situation, compounding the problem. She could have an intruder and not be aware. Scary thought for me.
The unanswered question is why the church leadership hasn't gone forward with the sound proofing. An animal hospital close to me has, with very good results. My city's Community Center has triple paned windows. I "observed" the landscaper in the adjacent cemetery operating his gas powered weed eater through those windows, with only the smallest sound coming through. May I be so bold as to suggest the church should do this also?
