In Da Bed Togethah! ATown Jus' Keeps On Truckin'!

Well, we have now seen what happens when media executives are, literally, in bed with elected officials.

As if we did not already know.

@Andrea Griffith: Welcome...welcome to the boomtown!

Now, we can all look forward to the Girtz and Lanoue effigies being marched around the streets...um...I donno...this IS Athens...

Or, perhaps, an electoral rout of a Commissioner and a School Board that will probably be silly enough to keep Lanoue after this.

ACC citizens need to mobilize all over this. This stench has to be cleaned up.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
