Pet obituaries

May 21, 2012

The Obituaries page at OnlineAthens is one of the most visited pages on our site.  No matter what age you are, you want to know if someone you know or love has died.

With more and more couples choosing not to have children, family pets now replace children as the star of the family. At least once a week on Facebook, I see a friend post a picture of their pet and talk about it. Unfortunately, I also see where my friends eulogize their furry friend, too.

What if there was a page for pet obituaries, too? 

Pet obituaries are becoming more and more popular. Read more about pet obituaries at legacy.com.

If OnlineAthens had a pet obituary page, would you visit it?

Would you pay to submit a death announcement for your pet?

    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.

First, a few thoughts on the winners: read more

    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
