@yeti: Don't know about these particular teenagers or their parents, but kids have been known to sneak out after bed check. That isn't a new phenomena. The talk about weekend parties would surprise you if you could be a fly on the wall some Monday mornings in ANY school hallway.posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 09:12
Crude dancing has been in culture longer than you're acknowledging here. The song "Shake Your Tail Feather" comes to mind. I don't know how old any of these commenting folks are, but does anyone remember the "dirty dog" and chaperones at Saturday night teen-towns at school gyms warning kids against vulgar dancing?posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 09:04

@proftom: Yes, media bias hype promoted by our illustrious governor to muddy history. "....he was viewed by many as a hero when his statue was dedicated outside the Capitol in 1932." The many/majority who voted him in.posted @ Sunday, December 1, 2013 - 11:04
Obviously, he was a man of that time elected by voters in 1890 to represent Georgia in the US House and then to the US Senate in 1920. He was an opponent of elitism in support of poor whites and blacks. He offered what they wanted during that era - it is called history. Too bad so many want to forget that history is how we got to where we are today.posted @ Sunday, December 1, 2013 - 08:33

"Ciné pulls in students, professors and residents from the downtown periphery."
"....tailored for Ciné’s art house crowd."
"....the nonprofit theater boasts a built-in audience for such films."
Could it be due to Ciné's exclusivity?posted @ Tuesday, November 26, 2013 - 08:19
"When Athens-Clarke County extended paid parking to 10 p.m., it “sabotaged” downtown businesses, Middleton said, and made other parts of town more appealing to diners. The types of operations moving into the city’s core, she added, are changing the dining scene for the worse."
Could not agree more hardily! This is such a shame. We'll miss you, Renee, and YOUR restaurant.

"Frankly, my plan is to be the calm in the center of the storm," Guth said."
"She required that the historically white sororities use a recruitment process in which new members can be added at any time."
If indeed this directive is for white sororities only, Bonner is ultimately promoting bias.
What I'll never understand is why anyone would want to associate with folks that don't welcome them under any given circumstance, whether socially or otherwise. Naturally - "birds of a feather" will still flock together.
Yes. Several in the slide show following that note 1960's are really 1950's.posted @ Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 06:22
@grove600: Most of these corporate entities are located in other states and have not one clue about the geographies of their locations. Epps Bridge Centre has an Athens 30606 address and they all roll with that. Oconee County has 10 zip code routes, most of which border other counties - USPS at their finest.posted @ Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 05:57

" People living below 100 percent of the federal poverty level will not receive the premium tax credit, meaning they will not be eligible for health coverage. It’s a small number of people, but it’s an important group of people who need help.”
WHAT? SMALL NUMBER?

GRANTS. Fed tax $$ usually pay for those.
