(sorry - hit wrong key) When a tag number can be taken down, it will make them accountable.

Cyclists nabbed for DUI in Athens

-I drive out Washington to Pulaski to Prince going home everyday. Turning right onto Pulaski I look left to turn and 8 days out of ten a bike pulls up on my right and I don't see it as I turn. They go to the red lights and run them and them get in front of the first car at the next light. I have been screamed at if I go around, flipped off and I got so frustrated one day I told a girl if she pulled in front of me one more time I would make her a hood ornament. 1 out of a hundred have been good rides. One. Most days - none. They need to pay for a metal plate license every year and have to mount in plain view, have vehicle insurance and then and only then will this stop! When a

Auburn pulls out narrow win over Georgia baseball

Adams has no interest in promoting sports and it is evident. His intention is that sports never be on top and he is a master.

Way to go Perno! This shows bad coaching - not missed opportunities. Way to go McGarity and Adams! Great plan...

Georgia hits three home runs in win that ends nine-game losing streak

Bobo is and got a raise. What does that tell you about Georgia athletics? Adams does not want sports at the top. And he has been very successful!

Fundraising support pouring in for former Clarke Central coach Billy Henderson

There is insurance and medicare and medicaid at his age. State can continue their insurance but don't know about county but there would have to be some arrangement for that since they can retire before age 65. The problem can be that there is a limit on days any will cover in a rehab facility. And they are not cheap!

Kaiser's time in Athens shows with medical campus, community support

I don't think they are driving that far for that office. They are required to. I had to drive to Atlanta for a dermatologist and other side of Atlanta for a podiatrist. Every center has a specialty included. You have to go there. Horrible.

Georgia technical colleges face another big budget cut

Maybe Voekel and the others could teach at UGA for free?!? That way, HOPE would not be an issue. And please know - I have always said if they are here legally I welcome anyone. It is the illegals. Sales tax is not near the percentage of income tax. And don't tell me they all pay income tax because I KNOW different. Some do, most don't.

Study Break: Undocumented students face hurdles to higher ed

What I have a problem with is Voekel! Is she still being paid by UGA??? How much time is Voekel and the others putting in this and what is it taking away from their jobs at UGA? Do they have BOR and UGA approval??

UGA struggles on the mound, loses another mid-week game

Elderly Athens man killed during home invasion

I have a rifle, shotgun and handgun - ready. My steps are wired so I know if anyone is coming near my doors as is the perimeter of our shelter (we were robbed once before and got nothing back). I will not be bothered again without shooting someone or their vehicle and tires. My rifle has a scope for anyone trying to get away and yes, I am trained.

Charles Darwin gets 4,000 write-in votes in Athens against Rep. Broun

@Pologize: And if laws were followed CORRECTLY and you demand - the illegals would have already been gone and social security would NOT have been touched! It's your thinking that has caused this. Your way or no way.

Charles Darwin gets 4,000 write-in votes in Athens against Rep. Broun

@Pologize: Too LAZY to be a citizen. How much more can TAXPAYERS give? These illegals can buy more than we can and reports are proving it. And we pay all there benefits, give them a college education and now all the funds TAXPAYERS have paid into are going broke because of all these hand-outs! Legal is fine. They are Americans - illegals are NOT. They are bankrupting this country. If you want to pay for them - fine! Take on a 100 of these hard-working people - pay their medical and dental bills please! But leave my money alone! We have paid into social security all of our lives and it's almost gone because our Democrats have stolen it for their votes! They have bankrupted California. I don't know how much more you people think America can give! If they are illegal, they need to be deported today and they can come back the right way like millions before them have.

What liberals can't get through their heads is - everybody has their belief and opinions. Dumb dems think it's their way or no way and all news outlets have proved they cheat to get their one-sided view elected. Acorn is without a doubt the biggest scandal of all. Religion is my choice and our country was built on this. Obama is a narcissistic idiot. Dems blame Republicans for not wanting to 'cross the aisle' but Dems won't budge so why should a Republican? Just watch how the debt and government grows. Government cannot keep paying for every illegal or non-working American. And there are jobs - these people just don't want them. I am all for people coming to this country - LEGALLY. Paying their share of taxes. And don't say they 'buy things' and pay taxes. I want their 'FAIR' share of PAYROLL taxes. Legally or get you butt home and make a difference there! People fought for their rights HERE - these lazy illegals don't want to fight - just a hand-out. I am tired or my taxes going up to pay for all these idiots and their children. Don't you realize how much this is costing us? Yet you fuss about taxes! What really gets me is to hear Mexico's leaders fuss because we won't 'take these people'!! Hahahahaha! Saves them - burdens us!

Richt likens loss to Gamecocks to 'perfect storm'

I like Richt as a man - but he is not a great coach. His remarks that it is just one loss, move on is one reason. No emotion. Rambo's lack of discipline shows in his life and on the field in clutch plays. Richt needs to make a loss a BIG deal! But no - 'it's okay guys' is the attitude he takes. So - they don't work harder. He just is not a great coach - never will be.

New billboards tout Clarke school initiatives

Horrible school district - horrible. Not enough room to tell the horror stories. No discipline in the home or schools for 90% of these kids. Mine was too afraid to go to her locker. Pathetic. Had to go to private schooling and still had to pay the lousy school tax. Parents should be able to sue the school system for failure.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
