Video system to secure diving well

MOULTRIE — A $6,000 grant from the Georgia Municipal Association will help the City of Moultrie install a security system  at the Aquatic Center on Fourth Street Southwest.

The grant will be used to install video cameras around the diving well and swimming pool, Recreation Department Director Terry Peek said Thursday.

“We’ve had problems with people coming in over the fence and under the fence,” he said.

Peek noted that the diving well is 18 feet deep with a pair of diving towers. He said people are known to have jumped off the towers after hours, and that creates a dangerous situation.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to keep people out who aren’t supposed to be there,” he said.

The Georgia Municipal Association Safety and Liability Management Grant program, from which the city’s grant comes, was introduced in 2000 to provide a financial incentive to assist members of the GMA in improving employee safety and general public liability loss control efforts through training and the purchase of equipment or services, the GMA said in a press release.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
