If you need a bus ride to Terrell County just stand on a corner along Weymouth Rd. At approximately 4:30 each day a small white bus with "Terrell County" labled all over it comes along on a timely manner.

Thurman 1 year, 6 months ago on Albany woman attacked by pit bull

Excuse me but--the Police know the name of the dog and the owner but between the Police and Animal Control they cannot find the dog? I don't buy that one. Arrest the dog owner, charge them with "Obstruction of a criminal investigation", and hold them until the dog miracously shows up. But then again: This was in the 500 block of Eighth Ave. Some influential Albany residents live in that area and they might just own a pit bull named Devo.

Thurman 1 year, 6 months ago on Group wants atheist books placed with Bibles in Georgia state parks

It appears that people are using the Herald as a means of venting personal vendettas. That is not the purpose of the "comments" section of each news article. As far as allowing ANY religious group to furnish printed literature proclaiming their beliefs--that's fine with me as long as Georgia tax monies are not used in any way for this. I do/have/will continue to rent cabins at Georgia State Parks and it will not bother me at all if there are several books/pamphlets on religions other than my Christian beliefs. I do not have to view them.

Thurman 1 year, 6 months ago on Water main rupture sends MCLB workers home Thursday

As one who is welll versed with this type of situation I commend the E&I people for finding this leak within a six and one-half (6 1/2) hour time frame. I have known of huge water mains which developed leaks under ground and/or concrete and no water was visible in the area of the break. Finding these type leaks with electronic means is difficult enough but with the pressure on these employees who found the break--I commend you. Isolating the area of the broken pipe was the only alternative to establish water/pressure within the base's piping structure in a timely manner. Now the hard part--digging up the area to find the broken pipe and the repairs as needed.

Thank YOU Mr. Bill Brooks and the American Legion. Would the Herald consider printing these names which are on the crosses so that people living out of Albany may read the list?

Didn't Jacksonville, FL. do this type merger back in the early '70's when the term "Emergency Medical Technician" (EMT) came into existence? Maybe send some of Lee County's people to Jax to observe and learn how to run both departments as a single department.

Thurman 1 year, 7 months ago on UPDATE: Edwards to move forward with Phillips' prosecution

"Millsaps has filed a number of briefs in the case requesting access to all investigative documents, witnesses and evidence." I know the feeling. I have an attorney whom has filed these type papers requesting information from DOCOP. The traffic stop was March 15, the original court date was postponed due to DOCOP not furnishing the evidence requested. Do you think the court would postpone the case if I/ME/my attorney did not have our paperwork ready? NOT!!

Thurman 1 year, 7 months ago on Lee teacher jailed on drug charges

From my own personal experience: YES, it is illegal in Georgia to have certain medications on your person or in your vehicle that are NOT in their original pharmacy/Doctor issued container(s). You will be arrested for this crime, taken to jail, you will remain in jail with NO bail until the pills are properly identified. Even a note from your Doctor stating that these were duly prescribed will not help in this type case. In court the judge will lecture you about "transporting medications not in their original container with proper labeling". The fine is heavy, really heavy. Ask me how I know about this.
