I hope that a journalist will pick up my story and publish an edited version with the intent provoking action from the City of Brookhaven to fix the conditions at Skyland dog park and avoid any tragic endings. Skyland Dog Park Eminent Danger!!! Multi-million dollar park unsafe for dogs due to design failure. When I saw my hound halfway under the fenced enclosure of the dog park, I was horrified she would be on the scent of an animal. escape and not return. Worse case scenario would involve her running into the streets and being hit by a car. Skyland Park at 2600 Skyland Drive, Brookhaven, GA is too new to have serious maintenance issues, but it does. Poor design is the root of the problem. The $3 million park opened in 2018 with two fenced area for dogs - one area is for smaller dogs, under 30 pounds. The intent of a fenced dog park (to provide a safe place for dogs to socialize off leash) is completely undermined by any breach in the enclosure whether the condition is above, below, or through the fence. In the case of the small dog park at Skyland Park, all three conditions exist. The first time I notified the City of Brookhaven about the breaches in the fenced enclosure of the small dog park was in 2020. The small dog park has two unsafe types of conditions caused by erosion. The frighteningly urgent condition that needs to be addressed immediately is the gully/channel/void in the soil under the fence caused by erosion. There are now multiple breaches in the form of large gullies under the fence. I placed bricks and large branches over the openings to temporarily prevent dogs from escaping. The second condition related to erosion that will allow dogs to escape the small dog park is accumulation of soil along the fence at bottom of the hill. Rainwater carrying soil and debris from the large dog park located up the hill flows downhill through the small dog park. The fence at the bottom of the hill in the small dog park is a dam collecting the rising level of debris and soil inside the fenced area. As elevation of the soil rises, the height of the fence is lowered. I estimate the fence height is 4 feet. The height of the fence along the dam is estimated at 2-1/2 feet which means the fence is low enough for a dog to jump over. Adding soil at the locations where the ground has eroded under the fence is NOT a solution because the soil will wash away and the gully will reappear. The cost of a useful long term repair will range depending on the solution. The simplest long term solution is heavy chicken wire laid around the inside perimeter and just an inch or two below the soil. Upon further analysis of the site, it’s obvious that the erosion problem is serious enough to warrant a study into relocating the fenced small dog park to a more level area adjacent to the current location. Erosion has exposed the roots of a tree next to one of the breaches. In the near future, the tree will likely fall when the soil is wet enough and the force of the wind is strong enough. The fallen tree and uprooted root system will destroy the fence. The underlying cause of the erosion is poor design of the park. This is a failure by the landscape architect and civil engineer whose design does not address the rainwater run off flowing through the park and the resulting erosion which is causing unsafe conditions (that could ultimately lead to the death of a family pet- that’s not a hyperbolic statement or unreasonable scenario). The third type of unsafe condition is caused by vandalism - the double gate for maintenance access has no lock or means to be fixed in the closed position. It can be easily opened with the force of one finger. I tied the double gates together with my dog’s leash as a temporary fix while visiting the park.
Are YOU being FORCED to TAKE the COV19 EXPERIMENTAL, NOT a VAX? HERE IS A SUGGESTED PLAN! Tell that individual(s) or organization, company, union, government and etc. to sign "The New Nuremberg Trials 2021" form. They will be HELD COMPLICIT for "CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY" by FORCING You! If they do not sign it, then tell them that YOU will not take the SHOT. If they are not willing to put themselves on the line, then you will not put your life on the line either. If they fire you for not taking the SHOT, then take them to court because it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!... #jeanmarieprinceblog More info: https://jeanmarieprince.com/blog/f/new-nuremberg-trials-2021-crimes-against-humanity-covid-shot PLEASE SHARE AND SHARE!

REPUBLICAN SENATORS WOULD BE BAD FOR GEORGIA AND AMERICA ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Senate Republicans are working for the wealthy elite and big corporations, not for the working and middle classes. They have been waging war against working people for many years in the following ways: #1 Republicans are supported by big business, which finances their campaigns, while shipping jobs overseas and decimating American factories and jobs. #2. Enabling illegal immigration (for example in meatpacking plants and service industries) in order to keep wages low on American workers and increase corporate profits, They express sham anguish over the problem of their own making whereas they could fine or prosecute the employers for ignoring the rules and using “contract labor” or the underground economy, but that would offend their donors. #3. Passing laws and regulations to weaken labor unions. Republicans have lowered tax rates for the wealthy by more than half since the Eisenhower years. This has widened the gap between rich and average people in the country, and now a small number of billionaires have more combined wealth than the entire 330 million rest of us. One of the first things the Trump administration did with Republican control, was to vastly lower taxes again -for the wealthy-, creating a deficit of more than a trillion dollars, which has come back to haunt us now that people are going sick and hungry and at risk of losing their housing in a troubled economy and with only grudging help from a callous Republican-controlled Senate and White House. Republicans have been trying to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, with no viable plan to replace it, and especially with the elimination of the pre-existing conditions clause during a pandemic. They have also been cozy with the drug companies and not made a serious effort to lower drug prices, which would be easy to do with the government’s buying power. They have collaborated with the failed leadership of the Trump administration, resulting in many thousands of deaths over the per capita rates in other advanced countries. They are trying to weaken and reduce medicare and social security coverage for senior citizens, destroy the post office, split-off aid from public schools to also benefit private schools, etc. I could list much more, but I need to keep this brief.----------------------------------------------------------------- I would like to add a simple but important note. If you- the average Georgian, were sitting at the kitchen table, would you be discussing these issues or the usual “red-meat” distractions the Republicans always use to distract you, such as guns, abortion and race? The wealthy elite control the Republican party, but they need lots of other people to vote with them, so they bring up emotional issues to excite people but which have no real impact on your lives. Perdue and Loeffler not only represent the wealthy elite, but they are among its’ ranks. They have used their power to enrich themselves with insider trading and legislation to benefit their businesses. They have supported attacks on our democracy. They have misrepresented themselves and made false accusations against their opponents. They have disdain for workers they controlled. Don’t let them stiff you. Fire them.
