Cars are backed up on Broad Street and people are standing in line to buy a burger and shake. Here's a thought ... take that same money and purchase some canned food for the Food Bank and feed a family instead.posted @ Thursday, November 15, 2012 - 15:42
I don't understand why a lawyer had to be appointed to represent the dog. It's not as if the dog can testify on his own behalf or help with his defense!posted @ Friday, October 12, 2012 - 13:11

@oneloveone: The article says: "They had four children together, and Johnson treated as his own Bugg’s three kids from a previous relationship." So Ms. Bugg is the mother of seven children.posted @ Friday, August 24, 2012 - 11:23

She does NOT need either of her own two children back...ever!
She's a POS!
I have no patience for people who hurt innocent children. So what if she ate a candy bar, ground her or take something away. Not run for 3 hours. Totally uncalled for!
I heard about this on the news yesterday afternoon. Apparently, the father works overseas and flew home just hours before his daughter died. Too sad for words.

I'll bet if the GT administration increased the student fees to subsidize the $100,000 replacement costs, those brats might think twice if they're paying for it.posted @ Thursday, September 29, 2011 - 09:52

"Police say Mitchell has an extensive arrest history; his only conviction for a violent crime was in 2006, when he was sentenced to 12 months of probation for beating his then-wife, according to Clarke County Superior Court records."
12 months probation?? Really? The penalty for running a stop sign is stiffer than than!posted @ Thursday, September 8, 2011 - 11:51

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
