Tom Fanning, our genial CEO host,
said some things I’ve never heard him say before like
Southern Company is
“pivoting towards wind”
and SO’s board soon has to decide whether to go forward with Plant Vogtle
“or not” probably by August.
Fanning gets the
last word in this blog post,
plus a complete transcript of what
I asked and
Tom Fanning’s response,
along with summaries of the other questions and answers.
Please hear me!
I think renewables are exceedingly important in the future.

Sometimes it doesn’t just look like they have something to hide:
the FBI found some of what the DeKalb County Commmission was hiding,
and one criminally-charged Commissioner promises to sing about the others,
while 62 vendors and all the other sitting Commissioners are being
No local elected body around here could have such problems, right?
The DeKalb FBI corruption investigation apparently started with
news stories in the AJC.

that it took an open records request for LAKE to get so you can see it.
I beg to differ with Mr. Pritchard’s opinion regarding “malicious
Lowndes County Manager Joe Pritchard says, “I don’t believe through
our investigation, nor through any info we received from the Department
of Ag, are able to indicate any malicious intent.”
Mr. Pritchard should understand that it matters not if this was done
with “malicious intent” or not. “Malicous intent” should be
determined by the investigating criminal agency, not a county manager.
“Malicious Intent” is only important in determining whether the
crime should be filed as a felony, or a misdemeanor.
The law is crystal clear regarding the denial of necessary medical care,
and/or humane euthanasia, for any animal deemed to be in need of such. Any
time a shelter impounds/houses a live animal, the shelter is required,
by law, to afford that animal with humane care – to include necessary
medical care or treatment.
The blogger then goes on to quote Georgia Code, which only brings
in the word “maliciously” for higher fines or imprisonment
for aggravated cruelty to animals.
Tomorrow will be a week and I have had no response! Very disappointing.
Thank you so much for your support. The County manager and several county
employees interviewed all the workers after a drug screen was conducted on

the people conducting the investigation (Joe Prichard, Mickey Tillman,
Page Dukes and Suzanne Pittman) of the charges brought to the Department
of Agriculture. From the
Former inmate Hanni Elabed is shown during a July 26 interview in Boise, Idaho. Elabed suffered brain damage and persistent short-term memory loss after he was beaten by another inmate while multiple guards watched at the Idaho prison operated by Corrections Corporation of America.
The surveillance video from the overhead cameras shows Hanni Elabed
being beaten by a fellow inmate in an Idaho prison, managing to bang
on a prison guard station window, pleading for help. Behind the glass,
correctional officers look on, but no one intervenes when Elabed is
No one steps into the cellblock when the attacker sits down to rest,
and no one stops him when he resumes the beating.
Videos of the attack obtained by The Associated Press show officers
watching the beating for several minutes. The footage is a key piece
of evidence for critics who claim the privately run Idaho Correctional
Center uses inmate-on-inmate violence to force prisoners to snitch on
their cellmates or risk being moved to extremely violent units.
On Tuesday, hours after the AP published the video, the top federal
prosecutor in Idaho told the AP that the FBI has been investigating
whether guards violated the civil rights of inmates at the prison,
which is run by the Corrections Corporation of America.
What is the inmates’ nickname for this CCA-run prison?
