St Pat's day reminder - Buzzed driving is drunk driving

16 Mar 2015

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 





Hiram, Georgia – March 16, 2014 – St. Patrick's Day brings to mind shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold and good luck. But no amount of luck can save you from a drunk-driving crash. Unfortunately, March 17th has become a deadly day in the United States, with a dramatic spike in drunk-driving fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during the St. Patrick’s Day weekend in 2013, more than a third (40%) of all crash fatalities involved drunk drivers. The night St. Patrick’s Day, was especially bad. In the post-celebration hours between midnight and 5:59 a.m. March 18, half of all crash fatalities involved drunk drivers. And we’re not just talking about a little bit too much to drink here; from 2009 to 2013, almost three-fourths of the drunk-driving fatalities on St. Patrick’s Day involved drivers who were twice the legal limit. So whether you’re buzzed or drunk on St. Patrick’s Day, it doesn’t matter. Drive sober.

In 2013, there were 31 people killed in drunk-driving crashes on St. Patrick’s Day. During the St. Patty’s Day period from 2009 to 2013, there have been 276 drunk-driving fatalities. Every one of those lives was lost because of bad decisions.

Chief Todd VandeZande offered this advice to partygoers: “Get ahead of the decision this year. If you know you’re going to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with alcohol, then figure out a plan ahead of time for how you’ll get home. Don’t wait until you’re too buzzed to decide, and don’t let your friends drive drunk.”

Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving, so if you have anything to drink, count on a sober friend, taxi, or public transportation to drive you home safely. Not drinking? Maybe this St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll be the saint who drives your friends sober.

The bottom line is this: Too many Americans fail to designate sober drivers. NHTSA is working hard to make sure every driver knows the dangers of getting behind the wheel after drinking. According to NHTSA, in 2013 on average one person was killed every 52 minutes in a drunk-driving crash in the United States. That totaled 10,076 drunk-driving fatalities that year. Let’s make 2015 different. Use this party-planning checklist to stay safe this St. Patrick’s Day.

Paulding Business Association hears how good Paulding's water future is

12 Mar 2015

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page


Mark Lethbridge of Brown and Caldwell spoke to the Paulding Business Association today about the progress, problems and future of the Richland Creek Reservoir project, which is slated to begin construction as soon as the Corps of Engineers approves the permit.

The project, with projected cost of about $180 million, is projected to provide water for Paulding for the foreseeable future.

The county will have to let a bond issue estimated at roughly $80 million for its part of the project as well as service additional low-interest debt of about $50 million obtained through the Georgia Environment Facilities Authority.

Pat and Patti Show #308 -- The "We can dream" episode

11 Mar 2015

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 





We have some fun starting with a lecture, I mean Pat and Patti Show Editorial by none other than Mrnn ... quite informative ... followed by the most notable insults from the BOC meeting (and commentary)...

After that, if we had the skills, we'd have staged it as a dream sequence but let it suffice, it was a tin-foil fantasy capable of covering even pubby's bald knob.

Yes, Patti and Deena imagine a new Paulding, a great Paulding, a Paulding reaching to the sky and one that solves all the problems by throwing great gobs of money at it on the belief that if you build it, it will come.

Not mentioned was that the trick would be to lure an Abu Dhabi Prince to Paulding :)

BOC work session runs two hours with tensions showing

11 Mar 2015

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 


BOC Meeting





WORK SESSION




Tuesday's Commission meetings were interesting for a variety of reasons including good information from Brent Sparks (about the air show) and further polarization and ill feelings between the pro and anti-airport camps.

One observer noted there hasn't been this much conflict since the yanks and Rebs duked it out at the Hell Hole. While the morning meeting was marked by outbursts and complaints of some folks being out of order, the ill feeling continued into the hallways where individuals continued the confrontation.
