I actually feel bad for this guy - I can't imagine having to live with with the guilt of an awful mistake that took someone's life. These things can happen to anybody and soooo fast...

I once nearly turned in front of a motorcycle while at the beach. It was nighttime and I didn't see him because there was a lot of traffic and I couldn't distinguish his one headlight from the car behind him, nor could I hear his quiet pipes. Luckily I saw the flash of white paint as he slammed on his brakes and turned the bike slightly and was able to stop for him to get around the front of my car. He got pretty squirrelly but barely saved it and if I hadn't seen him waver it would have been a disaster...he would never have stopped in time. Despite this experience I love jumping on the bike with my significant other for a joy ride so I'd like to remind everyone to ALWAYS ALWAYS be watching for motorcyles!

    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
