or Not, in the state of Georgia?"
Who was the Putnam County
Attorney during the Nuwaubians plight in Putnam County?
A. Frank Ford
B. Dorothy Adams
C. All of the Above
|The answer is C.
Another questions. Were they married? YES.
|Nuwaubians have been
sayings for years prior to the arrest of the Rev. Dr.
Malachi Z. York that they were being targeted by Putnam
county officials. Officials who themselves felt
that they were above the law and receive no
repercussions on breaking the law that they were hired
and sworn to uphold.
Some of these county
officials according to Nuwaubians were:
- Sheriff Howard
- Frank Ford (who was
suppose to be the county attorney but Nuwaubians
found out that this was illegal because the real
county attorney was Attorney Dorothy Adams.)
- Dorothy Adams
- Jerome Adams -
county building inspector
- Planning & Zoning
- Magistrate Judges

solutions is, Sills stated that he has overridden
department policies forgone arrest and not responded to
threats and behavior that would land other citizens in
jail. All in the interest of preventing a
showdown. He said he has ordered his deputies not
to stop Nuwaubian drivers for minor violations such as
license plate problems, or speeding at less than 75 mph.

confirmed that he was targeting Nuwaubians from the
statement above? How did he and his deputies

the public, outside of law enforcement."

they are anti- government ?
When you can
clearly see that the Nuwaubians were constantly applying
for permits that the planning and zoning office kept
denying. An they have the paper work to prove it.

Grieg released, following change in fine $2,500
By Rufus Adair
After a habeus corpus hearing Tuesday morning
that reviewed the merits, and not the procedures, of his case,
Nuwaubian groundskeeper/agent Victor Grieg and lawyers for
Putnam County agreed to a compromise settlement that freed Grieg
and reduced his fine to $2,500 on charges stemming from zoning
code violations in the winter of 1998
Grieg had been convicted in Magistrate's Court in May 1998 of
operating a night club in a building permitted as a storage
building and located in an agricultural zone.
His appeals exhausted and bankruptcy declared, Grieg had began
serving a one-year sentence 11 days ago. He was unable to the
$45,750 fine in lieu of going to jail.
However, Tuesday, Atlanta lawyer Ralph Goldberg argued in Putnam
Superior Court that Grieg had had ineffective counsel and that
the mechanisms leading to the $45,750 fine, and even the one
year imprisonment, were beyond the constitutional range of a
Actually, Goldberg and the
county's attorney in the case Frank
Ford, had worked out a settlement in which Grieg
would agree to the conviction and be released from confinement
on payment of a $2,500 fine.
The courtroom was filled to capacity with perhaps 200 of Grieg's
friends and backers, who burst into applause when Judge James
Cline announced the consent order.
In a separate, but related, matter, the Nuwaubians on Monday
evening turned in a professionally drawn plat to the Planning
and Zoning office in an attempt to get about 10 structures
permitted - and get the padlocks off them that were placed there
in May under a court order.
As to whether the two events represented a slacking off of the
recent confrontational postures from county officials and from
the Nuwaubians, there were mixed signals Tuesday.
Justice Department negotiator Bob Ensley said of the permit
application, "It looks like we are on the road to resolving this
Dorothy Adams said she was
happy with the Grieg settlement, and that the issue had been the
enforcement of the county's ordinances, not the amount of the
"We thought it made sense to compromise," said Ford. "If he were
incarcerated, it was going to cost the county money. Grieg is
not a hardened criminal. He was convicted of a zoning violation.
It seemed the just thing to do"
However, the crowd was hardly out of the courthouse before talk
was heard about a suit for damages against the county.
Likewise, it was not clear whether the plat prepared by Ogletree
and Shivers in Milledgeville was adequate for the county's
Nuwaubian contractor Bernard Foster was only one who argues that
the Planning and Zoning office treated the Nuwaubians "different
from everybody else."
And that $45,000 fine in Magistrate's Court was "ridiculous," he
Yes, in some cases the Nuwaubians have been treated differently
than others, said Adams on hearing the comment. "Everybody has
bent over backwards" to accommodate their demands, she said.
Whether Tuesday marked the end of a chapter or just another page
may have been learned at noon Wednesday (after this paper's
press time) when Building Inspector Dizzy Adams told the
Nuwaubians he would have a decision on the adequacy of the plat.
