Survey Shows Voters Are
Concerned With Teen DUIs
Underage drinking and driving is
considered a major issue by 93
percent of Georgia’s registered
voters, and the same percentage
supports confiscating the driver's
license on-the-spot of underage
persons who drink and drive,
according to a poll released today by
Atlanta-based Evans & Associates.
"Drinking and driving continues
to be the leading cause of death for
teenagers in Georgia and recent
accidents have shown the problem
isn't going away," said Tom
Enright, regional administrator of
the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"Georgia's current laws simply
aren't stopping 15 to 21-year olds
from drinking and driving," Enright
The poll showed 83 percent of
Georgians feel that tougher DUI
laws will reduce accidents and less
than 30 percent feel Georgia's laws
are as tough as DUI laws in other
states. Seventy percent surveyed
agreed that drivers who are not old
enough to drink should face stricter
DUI penalties than adults.
Enright said youth drinking and
driving can be most effectively
deterred by lowering the acceptable
alcohol concentration levels for
drivers under 21 and by suspending
the license of those who drink and
"An automatic license
suspension for first offenders is
crucial in reducing drunk driving
because almost 75 percent of the
people arrested for drunk driving are
first offenders," Enright pointed
The Rev. Nelson Price, pastor of
the Roswell Street Baptist Church
in Cobb County and a member of
the Coalition for Young Driver
Safety, said he, like his fellow
pastors, has had the somber duty of
officiating at funerals for victims of
underage drinking and driving far

“The Store for Brides”
Mr. and Mrs. Duke Lane Jr.
Best Man. Jeremy Dalton Leech,
the bride's son, was a Groomsman.
The groom's niece, Caroline Lane,
was the Flowergirl.
A reception was held at the
Houston Lake Country Club in
Perry. After a wedding trip to Las
Vegas, the Lane's will reside in
too many times.
"If underage drivers license
suspension prevents just one
mother and father from having to
identify the mutilated body of their
child, such a law should be passed,"
Rev. Price emphasized. "Over and
over again I have seen how one
drunk driver can destroy a family
and, sometimes, even an entire
community. I hope that people
throughout the state will join me in
voicing these concerns to the
legislature," he added.
The poll has a margin of errror
of six percent

growing forests do more than
just grow wood for the products
we all need.
They’re also “oxygen
factories” that help purify the
air we all breathe.
Young, fast-growing forests
like ours cleanse the air by
converting vast amounts of
carbon dioxide into wood and
oxygen. Old, slow-growing
trees, on the other hand, are
much less efficient at this
Most people believe that
across our nation we should
retain some older forests, for
particular wildlife, aesthetic or
other values. We agree.
But in Weyerhaeuser’s
working forests, we also believe
people, wildlife, and the
environment all benefit when
we harvest mature trees, use
their wood wisely, and promptly
replant our lands to begin
once more the whole process
of forest renewal.
The result, across America, is
millions of acres of carefully
nurtured Weyerhaeuser forests
that are healthy, vigorous,
economically useful, and a
source of cleaner air for us all.
