    Col. Harry Riley Speaks to Americans Talk Show Along With Deborah Howard Operation American Spring has sprung. The momentum has been building, and our forces growing, for over eight months. The cries of millions of Patriots coalesce, in this coalition of Constitutionalists. We come with courage of conviction, with peace in our hearts. We are determined to mass. We will make our voices heard! We are armed only with our prayers. Our determination to rescue the government of the United States of America from the amoral enemies of Liberty is without bound. We must not fail! We come to the seat of power to speak truth. America has fallen away from the founding principles of freedom that once made her prosperous and great. We have become a nation not of liberty and law, but of elitist intimidation and crony corruption. Merit and hard work mean nothing anymore. No longer are American citizens free to exercise their God-given rights without interference from government. We come not as an attacking army of invaders, but in the bold vision of OAS founder Col. Harry Riley, as a massive 'human petition', demanding our elected Representatives begin the long-overdue task of cleansing our government of corrupt and criminal elements who have usurped their proper role as servants, and seek to rule, instead.

  2. Change your smoke alarm batteries as you change your clockWed, 29 Oct 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    While you’re “falling back” one hour for Eastern Standard Time this weekend, Gwinnett Fire and Emergency Services wants remind you to change the batteries in your smoke alarm. Your alarms should be checked monthly and the batteries changed out twice a year. Use Eastern Standard Time as a reminder to keep your home safe. Maintaining your smoke alarm Part of your regular maintenance is to keep your smoke alarm dust free and test it monthly. At least one smoke alarm should be placed on each level of the house, especially outside of bedrooms and at the top of staircase landings.These areas give you the earliest alert about a possible fire in your home. Smoke alarms have manufacture dates printed on them, so replace the unit based on the manufacturer’s recommendation. If the alarm is older than 10 years, it’s time to change it out. If you need to replace a smoke alarm, keep in mind that there are two different types. Ionization smoke alarms are more responsive to flaming fires like grease fires on the stove. Photoelectric smoke alarms are more responsive to fires that begin after a long period of smoldering, such as a fire started by a cigarette discarded in a trash can or dropped on the cushion of a couch. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the best way to keep your home safe is to use both types of smoke alarms. Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services offers free information and classes about smoke alarms and emergency planning. Contact us at fireprograms@gwinnettcounty.com. More...
  3. Be safe this HalloweenTue, 07 Oct 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    Halloween is coming up, and the Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services wants to remind you to be safe. Here are a few tips to use on Halloween night: For your home: Only use decorations that are tested by an independent laboratory Never overload electrical outlets with holiday lighting or special effects Keep paper and dry decorations such as leaves, cornstalks, and hay bales away from open flames or any other heat source Use flashlights in jack-o-lanterns instead of candles to prevent a fire Avoid using decorative candles at Halloween festivities and parties, especially around pets and small children Eliminate tripping hazards on your porch or walkway to the front door; light the path for a safe entry and exit for children Costumes: Costumes should fit properly; baggy sleeves or billowing capes pose a tripping hazard as well as a fire hazard Use soft or flexible props for costumes and avoid those that have sharp points or jagged edges If kids are carrying toy weapons as part of their costumes, make sure they do not look authentic; use only soft or plastic toy replicas to prevent injury Carry a flashlight or glow stick as part of the costume Consider adding reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for better visibility Choose costumes that are bright-colored and made of flame-resistant materials; look for a fire-retardant label on any store-bought costume More...

  5. DDI construction impacts Jimmy Carter BoulevardWed, 29 Oct 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    TheGwinnett County Department ofTransportation will close the I-85 at Jimmy Carter Boulevard bridge for the diverging diamond interchange crossover on Friday, November 14 at 9:00pm.The bridge will open to traffic by 5:00am on Monday, November 17 with the new interchange configuration. Should conditions prevent the closure from occurring as planned, the backup closure period will be from November 21-24.The project involves shifting traffic to the opposite side of the bridge, which will make left turns onto the interstate more efficient and improve the flow of traffic across the bridge. The bridge will be closed to all through-traffic during the weekend, although construction will not impact right turn access to or from I-85.Drivers and pedestrians should take one of the planned detours detailed on www.gwinnettDDI.com. Pedestrian traffic should continue to use the detour route for at least one month following crossover during the construction ofpedestrian walkways. After crossover, construction will continue on the center median and pedestrian facilities, while crews will finalize the signals, interchange lighting and pavement markings. The project is expected to be substantially complete in spring 2015. Once the project is complete, the bridge at Jimmy Carter Boulevard and I-85 will be Gwinnett County’s second diverging diamond interchange. The Georgia Department of Transportation is currently constructing a new “flex lane” on the northbound lanes of I-85 adjacent to the project. That project is also expected to be complete in spring 2015 and will add a new lane on I-85 northbound from Jimmy Carter Boulevard to Indian Trail Road for use during the afternoon rush hour. The Georgia Department of Transportation project will further improve the flow of traffic in the area.
