Georgia DDS Encourages Bicycle Safety

May is National Bike Month, and the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) encourages everyone using the roads to respect each other, share the road, and travel safely including motorists and cyclists.

DDS Commissioner Spencer R. Moore says, “Motorists should approach cyclists with due caution, maintain a safe distance and be prepared to slow down or change lanes if necessary to give the bicyclist enough space. If a lane change is not possible, reduce vehicle speed and remember that the minimum legal space for a motorist to pass a bicyclist is three feet.”

Note: Bicyclists traveling on roadways have all the general rights and duties of vehicle drivers.

For Drivers

  • If you see a cyclist, slow down. Bicyclists are most often killed by drivers who strike them with the front of their vehicle at high speeds.
  • Make room. When you pass a bicycle, give them three or more feet of space.

For Bicyclists

  • Safety in numbers. Studies show that drivers are more careful when they see more cyclists on the road. If you can, ride in a group.
  • Protect your head. When riding a bicycle, always wear a helmet and make sure it fits.

For complete driver education and licensing information, please visit the DDS website at dds.georgia.gov.

 

Justice Department Says Ticketmaster Is Monopoly

The Justice Department filed a sweeping antitrust lawsuit against Ticketmaster and parent company Live Nation Entertainment on Thursday, accusing them of running an illegal monopoly over live events in America — squelching competition and driving up prices for fans.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan, was being brought with 30 state and district attorneys general and seeks to break up the monopoly they say is squeezing out smaller promoters and hurting artists.

The Justice Department accuses Live Nation of a slew of practices that allow it to maintain a stronghold over the live music scene, including using long-term contracts to keep venues from choosing rival ticketers, blocking venues from using multiple ticket sellers and threatening venues that they could lose money and fans if they don’t choose Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster, which merged with Live Nation in 2010, is the world’s largest ticket seller, processing 500 million tickets each year in more than 30 countries. Around 70% of tickets for major concert venues in the U.S. are sold through Ticketmaster, according to data in a federal lawsuit filed by consumers in 2022. The company owns or controls more than 265 of North America’s concert venues and dozens of top amphitheaters, according to the Justice Department.

“Don’t wait until the last minute to get your quota hunt application in before the correct deadline,” says Tina Johannsen, Assistant Chief of the Game Management Section with the Wildlife Resources Division. “Quota hunts are a great way to experience a high-quality hunt on your favorite Wildlife Management Area or try out a new area you haven’t been to yet.”

A quota hunt is a scheduled event at a Wildlife Management Area or other state-managed property where a limited number of hunters are allowed.  Quota levels, such as the number or type of hunters that can participate and the harvest limit, are based upon the sound principles of wildlife management and public desires for a quality hunt.  These hunts provide a challenging and rewarding experience to hunters of all levels.  Selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a quota hunt.

Applying for a Quota Hunt is simple. Visit GoOutdoorsGeorgia.com and select “Quota Hunts” and follow the steps to complete your application. Need more help? Visit the Georgia Wildlife Blog at GeorgiaWildlife.blog/category/hunting/ for step-by-step instructions on applying as an Individual, a Group, or joining a Party. Remember to make sure your email is current and correct to receive quota updates, confirmations, or any further notices about quota hunts. If you are still unsure how to apply or want to check to see if you applied correctly, don’t wait, call 1.800.366.2661 to receive assistance.

Application deadlines vary depending on the hunt type. The first deadlines are July 15 for Alligator, August 15 for Dove (including Adult/Child hunts), and September 1 for most types of Deer Hunts (including Youth hunts).

Northwest Georgia Newspaper Getting New Owner

A rapidly growing publisher is buying 10 newspapers in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi from a company owned by Alabama’s public pension fund, including The Dalton Daily Citizen in Northwest Georgia.

Carpenter Media Group said Thursday that it’s buying the newspapers from CNHI (Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc).

No price was disclosed.

Among the newspapers being sold are three in Alabama — The News Courier of Athens, The Cullman Times and the St. Clair News-Aegis. CNHI is also selling The Meridian Star in Mississippi and five newspapers in Georgia — the Dalton Daily Citizen, The Union-Recorder of Milledgeville, the Valdosta Daily Times, The Moultrie Observer and The Tifton Gazette.

Carpenter Media Group is based in Natchez, Mississippi, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It became independent last year when Chairman Todd Carpenter divided newspapers he owned from those owned by Boone Newsmedia, a company where he was a longtime executive. Boone and Carpenter had previously managed their newspapers jointly.

Carpenter Media Group also publishes other newspapers, websites and magazines in Georgia, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

CNHI is based in Montgomery, Alabama, and is owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama, a pension fund for state and public school employees in that state. CNHI will continue to publish newspapers in 18 states.

New Jersey Man Arrested In Chattooga County After Traffic Stop

A fifty-five-year-old New Jersey man was arrested in Chattooga County after a deputy stopped the car he was driving in the Gore Community. 

Sheriff Mark Schrader said, “A traffic stop on May 18,2024 in the Gore area of Chattooga County resulted in the seizure of approximately 38 pounds of marijuana, several pounds of THC wax, other illegal drugs, over $17,000 cash and a firearm. Stephen Cox, age 55, of New Jersey was arrested on various charges related to the unlawful possession and trafficking of illegal drugs.

Sheriff Schrader added. “Deputy Ellenburg also recently made an arrest, unrelated to this one, for trafficking of fentanyl”.

Sheriff Releases Statement About Stateline Road Incident

Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader released a statement on Saturday about an arrest made on Stateline Road at Cloudland earlier this month in which a man with massive head injuries was tased by a Chattooga County Deputy.  Atlanta news media reported on Friday of last week that the family of the man claims excessive force was used during the incident.  Sheriff Schrader says that an internal investigation into the use of force is ongoing within his department.  You can read Sheriff Schrader’s complete statement and description of the incident below:

On May 16, 2024, shortly after 7:30 p.m. Deputies were advised of a call on State Line Road in Cloudland where 911 had dispatched EMS and Fire in reference to a subject falling off of a four-wheeler. Shortly thereafter, Deputies were advised that EMS needed them to respond quickly due to an EMS worker being assaulted. Deputy Reynolds arrived on the scene first and was met by an EMS worker who stated that the individual had struck him in the face and had possibly broken his jaw.

Deputy Reynolds was directed towards the ambulance where the individual, Christopher Cunningham Jr. was. Deputy Reynolds noticed that the stretcher was located outside of the ambulance and Cunningham was inside with a family member. Deputy Reynolds and the family member were able to talk Cunningham into walking out and sitting on the stretcher. Cunningham sat on the stretcher for only about a minute before trying to get up and yelling to “Get it off me” and grabbing his ear. Cunningham continued to attempt to get up as Deputy Reynolds attempted to gain control of him but was unsuccessful. Deputy Reynolds noted that the subject appeared to be intoxicated and he could smell the alcohol coming from him. Cunningham bit Deputy Reynolds and the bite broke the skin and caused bleeding. Several other units arrived and were finally able to restrain Cunningham. Deputies used several different techniques including an electronic control device (taser) to attempt to gain the compliance of Cunningham. At one point, after the taser deployment, Cunningham stated “that sh*t don’t hurt me”. Cunningham was eventually transported to the hospital by EMS. Deputy Reynolds was treated at the ER for his injuries.

Several other people were arrested during the incident for obstructing law enforcement while performing their duty. The next morning, I was briefed on his medical condition and the possibility that he had obtained a head injury from the four-wheeler incident. I determined that we would continue the investigation and evaluate Cunningham’s condition before determining which charges to place on him.

An internal evaluation of the use of force by deputies is being conducted to ensure the deputies acted within the scope of our policies. We train to use only that amount of force which is necessary to effectuate the arrest of an individual or, where safety and protection are concerned, to bring that individual into compliance. Media outlets, that requested the report, were given a copy of the report that contained much of this information earlier yesterday (Friday).

– Sheriff Mark A. Schrader
