Weekend investigations yield numerous arrests

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman reported a man sitting on her porch for more than an hour on Saturday and then breaking a window with his head when she would not let him in.

Desaria Ashworth, of the 900 block of Seventh Avenue Southeast, reported that the man came to her residence at about 3:45 and that she refused to let him in because he was drunk.

Ashworth told police that the man eventually realized she was not going to let him in so he broke the window and left in a gray car.

  • Ga Clipping.JPG ‘Low maintenance’ doesn’t mean ‘no maintenance’

    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.
