Woman says vulgarity led her to attack man

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man may have been fortunate Tuesday to be hit with an iron as his accused attacker told police that if she had a gun at the time she would have shot him.

Police were dispatched at about 10:43 a.m. to the 403 Hillcrest Drive residence of Maggie Daniels, agency reports said, where Taurus Edwards, 35, reported that Daniels hit him in the back with an iron. He told police that Daniels came into the room fussing at him and then struck him, Moultrie Police Department reports said..

Daniels told police that she hit Edwards in the back with the iron because Edwards called her a vulgar name during an argument.

“She also stated that if she had a gun she would have shot him instead of hitting him with the iron,” police reports said.

Edwards has been living at the residence with her and her granddaughter, Daniels told police, and she wants him to move out.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

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.
