Hero cop’s mom worked at Barnesville city hall

Probate judge Kathy Martin reported last week that she worked with the mother of Daniel Rush, the hero cop who thwarted the Forsyth County courthouse attack, at Barnesville city hall back in the early 1980s. Bobbie Rush worked for the city and lived on Hwy. 109 in Pike County with her husband Jim. ’Bobbie died of breast cancer and Jim later remarried and moved away. I am not sure where he is now,’ Martin said. As we reported last week, Daniel Rush went to Barnesville Academy, Milner Middle School and graduated from Pike County High School in 1986. Depty Rush was the first to confront 48-yearold Dennis Ronald Marx, a self-styled ‘˜Sovereign Citizen’ who launched what law enforcement officials called a ‘˜full frontal assault’ on the Forsyth County courthouse while court was in session June 6. Deputy Rush was hit and suffered a broken tibia and fibula in one leg. He is reportedly recovering from subsequent surgery.
