Whitehall/ Simonton Bridge Road is open again

The work is completed on the long national nightmare which is known as the Simonton Bridge Whitehall Hill shaving. But just as I was taking it today at the height of the worst summer squash all I've seen in quite some time, I saw a small down tree. Lucky for me the car that was in front of me stopped right on top of the tree or next to it and I was able to veer around them, especially after a car passed the other way

Advisory: July 4th Traffic Plan

Dear Dan Matthews,

This picture shows the traffic plan for after the July 4th Fireworks Event. Please take note that all lanes will be OUTBOUND from the park after the event, and NO traffic will be allowed into the park immediately following the event.

We have to get thousands of people out of the park, and we only have two entrance/exits with which to do so. Please take this into consideration in your planning. If you are coming to the park to pick up people after the event, you will not able to get into the park for at least an hour and half after the event. For full details, view this message on the web.

The Jamie Hood Trial Is Completely Bonkers

The Jamie Hood Trial Is Completely Bonkers

Georgia: Keep drones away from the Gold Dome | Political Insider blog

Talking & reading about war







To better understand the experiences of our veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Oconee Democrats' community book group is reading Phil Klay's "Redeployment: Stories" in July. While the book is fiction and relatively new, it's already being called a classic and one of the best books ever written about war. 

The author, a U.S. Marine, served in Iraq's Anbar Province for more than a year.

The book has received stellar reviews — and lots of awards, including the National Book Award for Fiction. Here's the citation accompanying Klay's National Book Award:

In these thematically linked stories, Phil Klay creates a kaleidoscopic vision of conflict and homecoming. With a strikingly original set of voices, Klay inhabits the hearts of grunts, mortuary workers, chaplains, psy-ops officers, and civilian bureaucrats muddling through doomed reconstruction projects. If all wars ultimately find their own Homer, this brutal, piercing, sometimes darkly funny collection stakes Klay's claim for consideration as the quintessential storyteller of America's Iraq conflict. 

We'll meet Wednesday, July 29th, upstairs at Chops and Hops in Watkinsville. The discussion starts at 7, but most of us arrive early to catch up with one another and order dinner.

Join us to talk about our wars and our veterans!

GA Senate Dems: Lift of Gay Marriage Ban 
Landmark for Human Rights
Atlanta, Georgia - June 26, 2015Georgia's Senate Democratic Caucus through Leader Steve Henson, D-Tucker, issued the following statement in response to the US Supreme Court's ruling today on Obergefell v Hodges:

"The high court's decision today in Obergefell v Hodges is a landmark for civil and human rights. For far too long same-sex couples were denied a basic liberty afforded to some, but not all. For too long, same-sex couples were living as a second-class citizens with separate and unequal rights. Today's decision corrected that error and established nationally what two-thirds of the country already knew: the right to marry who you love is a constitutional right available to every person."

GA Senate Dems: Affordable Care Act is Now Settled Law
Atlanta, Georgia - June 25, 2015Georgia Senate Democrats issued the following statement after today's US Supreme Court ruling on King v Burwell:

"Today's US Supreme Court ruling regarding the federal subsidies of the Affordable Care Act is now settled law.

"More than 400,000 Georgians will retain their health care coverage. Our attention now must turn to more than 600,000 Georgians who are not covered under a health care policy by expanding Medicaid and accepting the federal funds available. This funding represents tax dollars Georgians have already paid into the system and it is only right that money flows back to Georgia in order to provide health care to our most vulnerable citizens, protect our rural hospitals, create jobs and improve economic development."
