haha, give them food and they will never leave. Instead leaving a mountain of urine filled vodka bottles and broken crack pipes like all the other homeless/urban camper sites.

Have you actually ever visited an Athens homeless encampment or spent any time with the people who frequent them? Nearly everyone of them is a convicted felon who is using crack cocaine and alcohol in excess and stealing to support it.

There are so many resources for those who actually want to stop being homeless it isnt funny. Those who chose to continue a life of stealing and using dope are simply a law enforcement problem which ACC does a terrible job of dealing with hence the droves of bums who flock to ACC from out of town and the high property crime rate and the rapes and murders at tent city over the years.

    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
