Driver faces charges

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man who suffered minor injuries in a Friday night single-vehicle accident faces DUI and other charges.

The Georgia State Patrol said that Waylon Joe Selph, 33, lost control of a 2002 GMC Yukon at about 11:27 p.m. on a curve in the 1500 block of Georgia Highway 111.

The Yukon went off the left side of the roadway, struck a mailbox and came back across the road before hitting the ditch, agency reports said. The truck then rolled over and came to rest on the driver’s side.

Selph was treated at Colquitt Regional Medical Center and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The GSP has charged him with driving under the influence, possession of an open container, failure to maintain lane, possession of marijuana, seat belt violation and driving while unlicensed or license expired.

In remarks before the ribbon cutting, Colquitt Regional Medical Center CEO and President Jim Matney said Georgia Linen Service won't compete with any existing laundries in Moultrie because it serves only industrial clients; co-owner Mel Harrell echoed that statement and said the business doesn't process garments at all.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
