grove600: Pretty soon they'll be outlawing potatoes. Making us register them. And we won't be able to bring mimi's potato casserole dish to the church pot-luck. And we'd have to have a permit to get our...

dahreese: Seeing what 14 acres of man made wetlands can do is all the more reason to protect the natural wetlands that still are undeveloped. It's a matter of political will.

    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.

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
