In reply to: Athens Housing Authority receives tax credits for Jack R. Wells transformation »

What a waste of money. Who in their right mind will pay full market value rent to live within government subsidized housing? Of COURSE the residents want the old ones to be demolished and for the government to build them nice apartments! Who wouldn't? After all, they take such pride in their neighborhood and their apartments now, right? This is just like the idiot liberal do-gooder mentality. Continue to throw money at 'problems' and expect it to get better by itself when you have multiple GENERATIONS that choose government assistance rather than putting effort towards a proper education and gaining the proper tools to become a productive member of society. To the people who will elect to live in these apartments among the government assistance crowd, be sure that you have rental insurance. Also, I recommend to have a good alarm system and reinforce both doors to prevent kick-ins...because you are going to come home and find that your stuff has been stolen while you are at work. Go ahead and hate me for stating the obvious. When it happens, and it will, I will say, "I told you so!"

    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. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    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
