Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

Welcome to the Spring Fling. Join us every day in April to start flinging the clutter from your life!

 

Let’s start flinging with your coats and jackets. Go through your closets and fling the coats that have been outgrown, are getting ratty or you just plain don’t wear anymore. And let’s face it, as cold has it has been this winter, if you have jackets you haven’t worn, you probably aren’t going to. If you have speciality coats like ski jackets that you wear infrequently, don’t let them take up vital real estate in your hall closet. Move them to an extra room or box them up and put them in the attic.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many coats and jackets you were able to fling today.

 

If you would like to receive these flings directly in your email box, subscribe here.

Ga. Supreme Court throws out Macon Co. death sentence


Georgia's Supreme Court has thrown out the conviction and death sentence for a man convicted of killing a Macon County bank vice president in 1999.

The court ruled that Artemus Rick Walker was probably incompetent to stand trial due to mental illness.

They said the lawyer who represented him at his 2002 murder trial failed to present evidence about his mental illness that might have prevented the conviction.

On May 12, 1999, the court's summary said Walker stabbed Lynwood Ray Gresham 12 times, in the chest and back, outside Gresham's home. Walker hired a second man to help him rob and kill a "rich" man, the summary said. After the pair rode their bikes to Gresham's home, the second man refused to stab Gresham himself.

Friday's ruling upheld a 2009 ruling in Butts County, where the state's death row is located.
