The Dodge County High School (DCHS) Indians welcomed the Brantley County Herons this past Friday night at Memorial Stadium for the first home game of the season.
The Herons returned the opening kickoff and a completed pass from Anthony Turlington to Mikel Collins lead to a 10-yard touchdown. The point after kick was no good and Brantley County was on the board, six to zero.
The Indians returned the kick off and drove the ball down field. With the first quarter coming to a close, quarterback Landon Martin, with an eight-yard run, scored for the Indians. Dodge County decided to go for the two-point conversion and Kyle Glover ran the ball in. Indians were up eight to six at the end of the quarter.
Brantley County’s next possession ended with no score and Dodge County got the ball back and quickly erupted downfield. Mitch Tanner kicked a 37-yard field goal and Indians led 11 to six.
Once again Brantley County could not score and Dodge County would once again get the chance to move down the field. Martin would keep the ball and run in for 15-yards and scored for the Indians. After a defensive personal foul at the zero yard line, the point after kick by Tanner was good and Dodge went into the locker room at the end of the first half leading 18 to six.

Rest in Peace Dan Magill, Mr. Georgia Bulldog (1921-2014) and former Idaho Congressman George Hansen (1930-2014). George Hansen was targeted by vengeful prosecutors on nitpick charges and falsely imprisoned. His conviction was later overturned on appeal. All should read his story. It could happen to anyone. Check out Will Grigg’s excellent article about Congressman Hansen on LewRockwell.com.

“When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law. “
Michelle Nunn, endorsed by Zig Zag Zell Miller, who called her a “bridge builder,” whatever that means, would be a Debbie Wassermann-Schultz, Alan Grayson, Harry Reid style Democrat. She has little chance of getting elected in Georgia (let’s hope) and I believe David Perdue would be a good Senator. Writer Bill Crane says Zell “is profoundly stubborn and possesses an unmatched internal weathervane for sensing political winds.” I believe Zell’s weathervane is defective this year. [Full Story »]

Regarding the events in Ferguson, Missouri, it is appalling that President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Governor Jay Nixon and Captain Ron Brown of the Missouri Highway Patrol acknowledged their support for the Brown family and the city, but none of the four mentioned support of the Wilson family or Officer Wilson.
Governor Nixon even stated that “the case would receive swift prosecution” and Captain Brown speaking at a memorial service noted a mistrust of the entire Ferguson Police Department and further stated he stands behind the Brown family and even apologized for the actions of Officer Wilson, actions that led up to Michael Brown’s death.

Zell for Michelle: Zell Miller still has that liberal Democrat streak. Remember in 1992 he was keynote speaker at the Democrat National Convention and claimed “Reagan and Bush have robbed us of our hope.” Did you lose your hope in 1992? Zell was a big Clinton-Gore supporter, hired ultraliberal James Carville to run his campaign for governor and campaigned enthusiastically for liberal Democrat Max Cleland’s reelection in 2002. Zell and Max lost. Zell claimed at the time that he “was tired of people coming down here and hollering liberal.”
“We can’t all be born rich, handsome and lucky. And that’s why we have a Democratic Party.”
Georgia Governor Zell Miller
at the 1992 Democrat Convention
Now I know why we have a Democratic Party - Zell has let us in on the secret. Maybe Zell is Georgian for Charlie Crist.
“Rick Perry defense in two words: Tom Delay!”
Robin Williams R.I.P. Yes, Robin was fairly liberal but had a nice touch. He made 30 USO military tours and many veterans will tell you he did a lot for vets.
Astute writer Sam Francis (1947-2005) solved the Chandra Levy murder case early on in 2002, while the public focus was on Congressman Gary Condit, who was innocent. Finally in 2009 an arrest was made of Ingmar A. Guandique, a 19-year old illegal immigrant from El Salvador. People should have listened to Sam back in 2002. Check out the story at VDARE.com, a site I check daily. The person Sam suggested.
From TheAbsurdReport.com 8-2-14: “The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.”
