On behalf of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, I would like to thank the citizens of Dodge County for the tremendous support provided to investigators during the investigation of the murder of Eastman Police Officer Tim Smith.
For several weeks, local, state and federal officers conducted a concentrated investigation using the GBI office in Eastman as the investigative command post. During this time, a steady supply of food, drinks and other materials was provided to this command post by individual citizens, local businesses, civic organizations and churches.
This greatly reduced “down time” and gave investigators more time to focus on the business that was at hand. To see such community support also served as a great encouragement to the investigative team. In twenty-six years as a GBI Special Agent, I have seen communities graciously respond and support law enforcement during tragic times, but I have never seen anything that compares with the sustained outpouring that came from this community in the aftermath of the murder of Tim Smith, a brave and dedicated police officer.
I would also be very remiss in not thanking you for your prayers and encouragement during the course of the investigation. Thank you Eastman and Dodge County.

According to the medialeft windbags, Donald Trump should agree in advance to accept bogus election outcomes, no matter how crooked the results are. People are crazy if they fault him for not going along with vote fraud.
They now try to make this a big issue that he is an “obstructionist” for not buying the demands of liberals that he ignore obvious election tampering. He merely says he will reserve judgment. What’s wrong with that? Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, America’s Senator, says Trump figures you should never give up any right you have – agreed!
“The Democrats do everything they can to ensure that people who are dead or illegal immigrants or whatever are on voter registration rolls. That alone rigs the game.”
On Trump’s taxes: “Trump is accused of not parting with enough of his private property taxes, which he was supposed to hand over to a shakedown agency; to what is essentially an engorged, voracious organ called government. But put it this way: Whatever Trump did with his funds is better than what the government would have done with them.”

CNN (Clinton News Nitwits) Demoleft mouthpiece Brian Stelter blames – you guessed it – Donald Trump. His “Overheated Rhetoric” caused the fire-bombing of the North Carolina Republican office. Donald made ‘em do it!
Wealthier counties in the U.S. are around Washington, D.C., America’s biggest growth industry, the government itself.
What do Vince Dooley, Herschel Walker, Bobby Knight, Mike Ditka, Kid Rock, Larry the Cable Guy and Clint Eastwood have in common? All endorsed Trump 2016. So have many others. I’m all for him. Save America – don’t buy the lies of the medialeft. TRUMP 2016!
Don’t forget – Hideous Hillary has been endorsed by the Communist Party USA (CPUSA.org). So was Obama, both elections, 2008 and 2012. The Communists stopped running their own candidate. They like what the Democrats are offering.
“Anything called a ‘program’ is unconstitutional.”

In its most recent game, the Dodge County High School Indians football team fell to its opponents, the Washington County Golden Hawks. In the game, which took place on Friday, October 14, the Golden Hawks took an early lead, maintaining it through much of the game – even though the first half was the only half to see point-scoring action.
With 8:17 left on the clock in the first quarter, a Washington player ran the ball for a touchdown, but the following point after touchdown (PAT) attempt was unsuccessful, so the score rose to just 0-6 in favor of the Golden Hawks.
