   It took standing in line for hours, but hundreds of drivers were able to resolve traffic tickets in Pine Lawn yesterday.

   The city had sent out letters warning ticket holders that they had outstanding $50 fines.  All of the letters warned that failure to appear at court on August 8th at 3:30 PM would result in a warrant being issued.  That meant a line of ticket payers that wrapped all the way around the block.  

   It took several hours for everyone to get into court, but by late Thursday evening, everyone had seen the judge.

   Several people in line said they had received no prior warning about the tickets, but city officials say previous warnings had been distributed and that the long waits could have been avoided if violators had paid their fines on line.

   Charges could be filed as soon as Tuesday morning against a Wellston City Councilwoman who allegedly attacked a resident during Monday night's council meeting.  

   Police say it began as a verbal altercation between council member Helen Jackson and an older woman who was addressing the council.  But it escalated into a physical altercation after Jackson left her seat behind the podium and approached the woman, allegedly grabbing her arm.  Police intervened, restraining Jackson.  

   The victim was taken to the hospital.  Her condition isn't known.  

   The meeting broke up before the council could vote on the Mayor's appointment of former Pine Lawn Police Chief Rickey Collins with the Wellston police department.

   Collins was hired after being fired by Pine Lawn for undisclosed reasons last month.  

   Wellston Police Chief G.T. Walker says he doesn't want Collins on his force, in part because of questions surrounding his record on the job.  "We're in the process of rebuilding the name of the city of Wellston, the police department and all of the other departments," Walker said.  "I feel that we need to hire the best that we can, with the cleanest records that we can so that we can move forward."

   Walker also noted that Collins had fired many of the former Pine Lawn police officers who currently work in Wellston's department.

   Collins says he believes Walker and the other officers who oppose him are looking for revenge.
