Controversial Assault, Transportation Plan and the Pursuit of Life, Liberty and Happiness

A look at a few of the most notable stories this week on Dacula Patch.

Dacula Man Admits Grabbing Teen by Neck During Dispute at McDonald’s

I was genuinely shocked at some of the comments on this article. No matter what snarky remark the juvenile may have made, that does not justify trying to throttle him. As adults, we are expected to behave in a rational, civilized manner though many routinely fail miserably in that endeavor. We should be setting a good example for the younger generation, not teaching them that threats and acts of violence are the appropriate recourse when faced with conflict. 

Complacency is easy. Why go vote when you think it won’t make a difference? I’ll tell you why -- you just never know when it will make ALL the difference. Look at the recent race between District 3 Commissioner-elect Tommy Hunter and Mike Beaudreau. Look at the Bush-Gore race in 2000. Mayor Jimmy Wilbanks gives a politician’s perspective on why voting is important. I hope you’ll take a moment to read it.

Georgia Public Policy Foundation Presents 'Plan B' for Transportation

BRT. Almost sounds like some kind of sandwich, but it is an acronym for Bus Rapid Transit -- a mode of transportation favored by the GPPF. The GPPF recently presented their ideas for addressing the state’s transportation woes. Check it out and see what you think.
