The boy may not have even been homosexual. He could have been a "bully" just trying to harass the person he was bunking with and knew that would bug him. Bullying comes in many forms.posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 10:16

Isn't it ABH policy to not allow comments on stories where rape is involved?
With a story as tragic as that, they are probably banking on our abilty to be humane and kind to the victims and their families. Can't imagine why a person would marry someone with a record like that, but regardless, she sure didn't deserve what she got.posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 10:07
Backed into a corner or not, this is very unusual behavior for a fox. If it was my child, I wouldn't gamble that they would catch it. I would opt to get the vaccinations. What a shame. Even if they aren't as painful as they used to be, I'm sure they are painful none the less.posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 08:43

Had the school done something, anything in the first place, it doesn't sound like it needed to turn into this big of deal. It sounds to me that the parents just wanted some kind of reassurance that their son was made to feel uncomfortable and that they would take steps to try and avoid it from happening in the future.
"Sir, I assure you we will look into this aggressively and speak to the boy and his parents." I mean SOMETHING!posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 06:51

@Logical: IF all of that is the case, I would at least lock them in the car when I went back to get the other one.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 11:38
If the officer never saw him driving the car, how could he be charged with DUI? Sure he got him on everything else, but its not a crime to sit in your car drunk.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 09:34
Barring him from the apartment complex did about as much good as restraining orders do. Hold, up! Can't go there, this piece of paper with a bunch of words on it says so!posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 09:28

I hate to blame the mom because truly she did not anticipate anyone steeling her car, but why the heck didn't she bring both kids out at the same time? Who leaves a baby in a car unattended? And at midnight no less? One can only hope the baby is found safe.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 07:23
Because they know how to fudge the numbers. If you don't pass they have you withdrawl and send you to Ombusmond. Eventually, you will graduate from there. Take a look at the withdrawal rate. I bet you will find more kids withdrew this year from Central and Cedar and the numbers are compatable with the growth in the graduation records.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 14:34

A national atheist group says it will place its literature in cabins and lodges in Georgia’s state parks after the governor’s recent decision to allow Bibles in them.
Good for him. Put them in. Why should anyone care? People will read what they want to read.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 13:57
she was not interested in pursuing charges, but she had already reported the matter to Little League officials.
Someone entrusted to children encouraged others to do bodily harm to her son. Whether she presses charges or not she should file a police report. Who knows whatever stupid stuff this idiot has done and now it becomes her word against his.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 13:19

Others said they thought some leeway should have been given due to rainy weather and traffic delays as streets were blocked for President Barack Obama's motorcade.
Why should they have taken into consideration for traffic and rain? Should they have written, we will lock the doors 30 mins early but if you were stuck in traffic, or if it rains, we will let you in? Seriously? If you don't care enough to get there at least 30 mins early, you got what you deserved.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 11:35
The officer did what he needed to do in an attempt to save the young lady's life and his own. I'm sure they will find the robber was likely on drugs which means he probably would have killed her. So sorry for the loss this young ladies family has suffered.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 11:31

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
