In reply to: Athens' Jewish community celebrates festival of lights »

December 9, 2012

Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish brothers and sisters.

We Christians need to remember that Jesus was born a Jew, was raised a Jew, died as a Jew, and was given full Jewish burial rites.

Roman Catholics and Jews have become close and have made very productive steps in reaching out to one other to better understand our differences with mutual respect and admiration.

The slew of Protestant denominations here in the "Bible Belt" South...well...not so much! Sad

Happy Festival of Lights! Shalom Smile

    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.

    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
