Man dies in lawn mower accident

Man dies in lawn mower accident

An investigation continues in Gainesville, where a man working at the Chattahoochee Golf Course was killed in what appears to have been an accident: David Silcox was 69 years old. He was mowing grass when his riding lawn mower overturned, crushing him to death. It’s the second such accident in recent weeks in northeast Georgia: E.G. Higginbotham was 76 years old. Elberton Police say he was mowing grass at the Elberton County Club when his mower overturned into a pond on March 20, pinning him in the water.  A man was killed Thursday morning while working at the Chattahoochee 

Smart, Dogs ready for G-Day game

Smart, Dogs ready for G-Day game

The Georgia Bulldogs spring football game, G-Day (4 p.m. Saturday at Sanford Stadium), will offer the first look at the 2018 Georgia Bulldogs.  Here are five Bulldogs to keep a particularly close eye on Saturday:  Elijah Holyfield, RB— Holyfield has been a name on a lot of lips this spring and not just because of his massive guns. Head coach Kirby Smart recently called Holyfield one of his “favorite competitors out there.” With D’Andre Swift (groin) expected to be limited, if he plays at all, expect Holyfield to get plenty of carries and turn a few heads.  Brenton Cox, OLB/DE— Cox, an early enrollee, is a player too talented and versatile to not play as a freshman, whether that be at defensive end or outside linebacker. Smart noted recently that Cox has been getting some work with the first team, so he should get plenty of minutes at both positions at G-Day.  Richard LeCounte, DB— LeCounte, a rising sophomore, was considered by many a shoo-in for the starting safety spot vacated by Dominick Sanders. But Smart has been critical of LeCounte this spring, calling his performance “up and down.” J.J. Holloman, WR— Although Smart has expressed concerns about many positions this spring, he’s been pretty upbeat about the receivers. He singled out Holloman and early enrollee Kearis Jackson — another player to watch — as second-team guys who are “challenging the guys in front of them.” Justin Fields, QB— There is no player whose performance will be more scrutinized and overanalyzed than Fields. He’s one of the highest-rated players the program has ever signed and plays at the most high-profile position on the field. A lot of fans have speculated he could see the field as a change of pace behind center — a la Tim Tebow in his freshman year at Florida — or even beat Jake Fromm outright. While the latter seems highly unlikely, the former is well within the realm of possibility. 

Police blotter includes gunshots in Athens, chop shop in Jackson Co

Police blotter includes gunshots in Athens, chop shop in Jackson Co

Athens-Clarke County Police say there were no injuries when shots were fired into an apartment on West Broad Street: police were, at last report, still searching for shooting suspects. Bullet holes were found in glass in a unit of the River Edge Apartments.    A Jefferson man faces a long list of charges after his arrest in Jackson County: 57 year-old Randy Brown is accused of operating an automobile chop shop out of his home on McCreery Road in Jackson County.  There is now reward money in the ongoing search for a Walton County murder suspect: $2,500 for information that leads to the capture of the man wanted for shooting and killing his wife at a home in Social Circle. Suspect Jerome Mobley is 39 years old; the Walton County Sheriff’s Office says he should be considered armed and dangerous.    There are charges for a teenager in Hall County: 15 year-old Jadyn Young faces child molestation allegations. Gainesville Police say he will be charged as an adult.    Two teenagers are arrested in Hall County: 19 year-old Michael Walker is from Buford, while 17 year-old Hardy Day is from Flowery Branch. They’re accused of breaking into automobiles, stealing cash and other valuables. They’re also facing drug possession charges, caught with what drug agents say were prescription tranquilizers. Both were booked into the Hall County jail. 

Trump denounces Comey, Russia probe, after release of Comey memos

The morning after memos written by former FBI Director James Comey were delivered to Congress – and then immediately leaked to the news media – President Donald Trump blasted both Comey and the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, denying that he had done anything wrong, and defending a top aide who had been caught up in the probe.

“So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book,” the President thundered on Twitter from his Florida retreat in [More]
