@Anonymous Dude: No school is 100% perfect, but I doubt that our area private schools have problems like the one described in this story.posted @ Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 12:17
And this is why every parent with common sense or a steady paycheck is yanking their kids from Clarke County and putting them in either other county schools or private schools (myself included).posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 22:30
[quote][b]Oh-brother[/b] - An institution that supports all those wholesome values yet makes some of it's loyal contributing members lie should really examine their motivation.[/quote]
The BSA didn't "make" those loyal contributing members lie. They chose to lie when they applied for membership in an organization that clearly stated its membership requirements and creeds, one of which is honesty.
Look at it like this: If I wanted to join the Girl Scouts and so I claimed that I was a girl so I could join, did the GSA force me to lie...or did I choose to lie?

That may be the case, but I seriously doubt this 63-year-old jogger was after their stash. These little monsters just took her down like a rabbit.posted @ Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 10:52
Maybe he just wanted to cut his baloney sandwich into quarters. That's not a crime, and it makes the sandwich more exciting to eat.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 06:24

Oh, I just saw where the dude is banned from the apartments, so criminal trespassing applies. I stand corrected.posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 15:07
@FairFacts: Possibly, but this article doesn't say the officer was in hot pursuit. The first paragraph states the officer merely saw a group of men hanging out and one of them ran inside. This information alone doesn't seem to support reasonable suspicion of a crime. There may be more to the story than is reported, but I'm commenting on what I'm reading.posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 15:05
I'm sure not in support of this loser, but refusing to let an officer into your home isn't "hindering" him...it's exercising your Fourth Amendment rights.posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 07:18

♫ So, I took her to my crib and everything went well as planned
But when she got undressed, it was a big old mess, Sheena was a man
So I threw him out, I don't fool around with no Oscar Meyer wiener
You must be sure that the girl is pure for the Funky Cold Medina! ♫

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
