Please send suggestions to me, Rev. Charlotte Fairchild at the contact information at the bottom of this email.

Buddy System is promoted by law enforcement, and all branches of military. If you check Youtube, you will see that scuba divers, ice fishing, hunters, kayak and mostly male athletes all promote the Buddy System. More women need to be encouraged to use the Buddy System, and men too. I went with a Buddy Saturday Dec. 3, 2011 to Jenni Ewing's memorial and met 7 women riding or walking alone in three miles.

The first proposal for signs in the three counties, Cobb, Paulding, Polk on the Silver Comet Trail for sign improvement and maintenance. Please make suggestions. Can motorized vehicles for disabled people be used on the Silver Comet Trail?
The Buddy System can double the people on the Silver Comet Trail and make the Trail safer for everyone!

1. Signs to be improved/maintained (almost like cemeteries) through funds from the money my nonprofit Fear Thou Not raises.

2. Buddy System needs to be on the top. Buddy System is not a rule with a number but just the 2 words, in blue or reflective yellow or white.
3. Each county would have to agree to the color and placement and to receiving funds for this improvement and the maintenance of the large mile marker signs on both sides.
4. I want the signs to be on both sides on the mile marker, not the 1/4 or 1/2 or 3/4 mile markers.
5. I want other trails to take up and notice this, and I want PR that is positive for citizen crime prevention, with no fear tactics or negative PR. Another murder would be awful PR, and if people continue to walk/ride alone, and if 40 to 50 men are arrested every year on the Silver Comet Trail in Paulding County only but according to what Sheriff Deputy Mike Quinn said in 2009, I know this is likely to happen.

Murder On the Silver Comet Trail is in the Pines Library System, and on Amazon. It would please me greatly if you checked the book out from the library.

I have met two men who were stranded on the trail after dark with a flat tire and they walked miles in the dark. They didn't think to call friends or neighbors. If they were using the Buddy System, they would have been safer. I have met men who were hospitalized after violence on the Silver Comet Trail. The men were not using the Buddy System.

It wouldn't hurt for people to be reminded that going into a bathroom alone is not safer than finding or waiting for another person, at least for women.

Mr. Ewing, Jennifer Ewing's husband, has retired from the Georgia Visitors' Centers. I requested that this information be given to him if he can be contacted. I also am contacting Home Depot because Jennifer Ewing, the woman murdered in Paulding County, was a former employee of Home Depot.

I left my contact information at the Silver Comet Trail in a tin. When Meredith Hope Emerson was missing and national news broadcast her disappearance, her description in 2007 or 2008 fit me so closely my Mother called me to find out if I were the woman missing. Use the Buddy System for the women who have been murdered, and the one who got away--me.
