Mom Arrested for Leaving 3-Year Old for Hours to Go Drinking at a Bar




A mother in Georgia has been arrested and charged for leaving her 3-year old son home alone by himself while she went drinking for hours with her boyfriend.

26 year old Kelly May Algar from Georgia along with her boyfriend, left the 3-year old son alone at home to go drinking at Good Ol’ Days Bar and Grill, located in Cumming, as reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

She kept drinking with her boyfriend for several hours while her son was at home all alone. The boyfriend even ended up passing out on the streets and having to go to the hospital.

She proceeded to accompany him to the hospital, all the while leaving her 3-year old son all alone at home.

Authorities discovered this after she accompanied her boyfriend to the hospital and told employees at the hospital that she had to go home to tend to her “home alone” child.

As stated by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cpl. Doug Rainwater, she was charged for “reckless conduct” as well as “cruelty to children”.

She was first booked in jail but eventually released on Monday, on a bond of $22,730, according to Rainwater.

The child has been taken into custody by the Department of Family & Children Services.

It’s shameful that such acts of reckless conduct still happen to children so young. Even older children need adults around to keep them safe even when playing games to profit from. In this particular case, the 3-year old was left all alone for several hours.

Corporal Doug Rainwater feared for the child’s safety as he could have walked right out into traffic, could have fallen and hit his head or even bled to death, all with no one there to help him.

All these weren’t as important concern to her as drinking and taking care of her drunk boyfriend, Corporal Doug Rainwater said.

It’s good that parents like these face the arm of the law, to ensure adequate safety and treatment of children, especially those too young to really take care of themselves.

Top Road Trip Destinations in Canada




Did you know that 1.93 million Americans traveled to Canada in 2020? That number was down year-over-year due to COVID-related travel restrictions. 

While some Americans visit the Great White North via plane, others prefer road trips. It can be fun to plan an itinerary, book a hotel, pack the luggage, load your family into the car, and head to the border. But if a road trip to Canada is in the plans for you and yours this summer, what Canadian destinations are worth the potentially thousands of miles of driving? Keep reading to learn about the top road trip destinations in Canada.

Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan

Grasslands National Park is one of Canada’s 44 national parks and park reserves. Whether you’re an earlier bird or a night owl, the national park in Southern Saskatchewan provides an ideal prairie landscape. It’s the perfect place to unwind, immerse yourself in nature, and recalibrate your life.

Enjoy the great outdoors on a campsite, or take part in hiking adventures by exploring trails. The solitude and breathtaking beauty of this national park will leave you in awe. Make time for the Ecotour Scenic Drive. It’s about 20 km (around 12.5 miles) long and will take one to three hours to complete depending on your pace. 

Toronto to Stratford, Ontario

If there’s one Canadian city most Americans have heard of, it’s Toronto. Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is the fourth largest city on the continent. It’s also home to the only authentic castle in North America. Casa Loma, located in midtown Toronto, is worth the visit. So, too, is the CN Tower, which is the biggest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. The city also has citizens representing 200+ ethnic groups. 

While there’s plenty to see and do in Toronto, why stop there? It’s a good idea to include a Toronto-to-Stratford excursion while on your road trip to Canada. You must travel 150 km (about 93 miles ) west to get to Stratford. You’ll see Victorian architecture and get to take in the live theater. Most Americans probably haven’t heard of Stratford before. But when you come for a visit, there’s a good possibility you won’t ever forget it.

North Cape Coastal Drive, Prince Edward Island

If you haven’t ever taken a road trip to Prince Edward Island, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s Canada’s smallest province, but it sure offers a boatload of fun. Are you a foodie or do you like to indulge in the local cuisine when traveling? Check out the western peninsula. You can delight your tastebuds with the range of food available. 

Make time to visit the Canadian Potato Museum in the province. After taking in the sites and attractions at the museum, enjoy a meal at the onsite PEI Potato Country Kitchen. The menu has items like the chili topped baked potato, which features a baked potato, homemade chili, and cheese. Meanwhile, the pulled pork potato features a baked potato topped with pulled pork, cheese, and sour cream on the side. That’s just a sampling, and all baked potato dishes are served with fresh-cut, homemade chips.

If you’re intersted in a U.S. to Canada road trip this year, the options above will give you some ideas. The sky’s the limit since there’s so much to see and do. 

You’ll want to ensure your vehicle is in good working order to avoid breakdowns. You’ll also want to stay alert on the road since you’ll be traveling a lot of miles and spending hours behind the wheel of your car. 

If you get into an accident, you must know what to do. In addition to reporting the accident, calling your insurer, and possibly even booking a rental car to complete your road trip, you’ll want to contact a personal injury lawyer if anyone is injured. 

No one wants to consider accidents or injuries when on a road trip. But it’s best to hope for the best while being prepared for the worst. You’ll enjoy the journey and the destination a lot more when you’ve done everything possible to prepare for any possible issues.
