Athens man brutally beats girlfriend

I've never understood this culture of abuse toward someone that's supposed to be a "loved one" (spouse, girlfriend or child).

Athens police make another family violence arrest under new strangulation law

Mikey, you'll never make the pros with behavior like that. They're not signing spouse abusers.

Professor Lives In A 36-Square-Foot Dumpster

Looks like it has a roof and AC, so claims of an "open air box" is suspect. The upside is that it's twice as big as his on-campus office cubicle.

Theater shooting victim's parents sue ammo seller

Can't go after the guy who - you know, BROKE THE LAW - so let's go after the businesses that - you know, followed the law.

Seem logical, right?

Liberals: Where punishing the law abiding citizens and rewarding the law breakers is the norm.

Police seek duo who stole elderly Athens woman's credit cards, charged $10k

Yeah. Tens of millions of dollars in inventory, and $29.95 security cameras at the door. Go figure.

Work? The only time they've ever broke sweat is when they're running from the police.

Cut off their "thief hand" and they won't steal but once more.

Police arrest gun-toting alleged Athens gang member at Clarke Central-Cedar Shoals game

Shaddrick Demerious will have everyone at his place of employment vouch for his character. "He's a fine upstanding member of the community" his preacher will say. "He was framed."

If you can't vandalize and loot an innocent shop owner, you vandalize and loot an innocent shopper.

Olive Garden defends breadstick policy

The world has problems, and we're supposed to be worried about this?

Besides, I dine at Carrabba's for corporate Italian food, DePalmas for local Italian food, and I can fix a mean skeddy when I set my mind to it, for dine in Italian.

Alleged. He allegedly is a gang member. He allegedly had a gun. Allegedly in his front pocket. Allegedly it was a revolver. He allegedly didn't have a gun permit. He allegedly was on school property. Which property he allegedly had been barred from.

That's a lot of alleged. Dr. Mauldin sez: "Take two doses of probation and I'll see you in six weeks when you're arrested for probation violation". And no, Mauldin isn't a real doctor, but he plays well to the voters.

Lumpkin to retire as Athens-Clarke police chief, named finalist for Savannah chief

It's called Double Dipping, and it used to be illegal in the federal system. I know of a few folks that have "retired" only to be rehired by the same department, and who work at the same desk even, and receive a retirement check AND a paycheck.

And we wonder why governments are broke and taxpayers are strapped.

I'd not be surprised if Lumpkin didn't end up on the short list to replace himself.

Hiltzik: Despite business grousing, Obama good on economy

Yeah. Wishful thinking, as employers only added 142,000 jobs in August.

"We guess" and reality rarely are the same.

Oh, but don't fear. They'll likely tinker with the numbers, massage them really good, and rearrange them in such a manner as to cast a good light, and all before the November elections.

Escaped school shooter captured near Ohio prison

The death penalty resolves forever if this kid/adult will harm others in the future, and as a bonus it cuts down on the costs of incarceration. It's a shame that an entire community has to fear this a*hole years after his skilling spree.

Florida man feared to be armed arrested in Athens for stalking ex-girlfriend

He should be flown back to Fla, and during the flight he should be allowed to escape @ 33,000' over the Okefenokee.

Teacher accidentally shoots self in leg at school

Carrying a round chambered is foolish 99% of the time. And for the record, a revolver always has a round "chambered". Also, some semi-auto's don't have a "hammer" that the user can cock, like my Glock 19. "Hammerless".

Man grabs Athens cop's gun a week after fellow officer shot with own weapon

When we bury a few of them this [filtered word]'ll stop. It should be looked at as attempted murder when you try to take a cops gun during any encounter you have with them, shots fired or not. Of course, what 's the penalty for attempted murder of a police officer? Probation.

Athens police looking for alleged shooter

It's COD. No one said what condition the package had to be in.

I know times are tight, but a grand isn't worth it. Make it $10k and you got a posse. Hell, they'll probably turn themselves in for that kind of cash.

The Editor's Desk: Lessons from Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place

[quote] there’s a photo from Pittsburgh showing the installation of high-quality temporary signage indicating the time it takes to bicycle or walk to various places from a given intersection or other landmark.

It occurs to me that local advocates might want to do something similar here on occasion. [/quote]

Yes. Because I've always wanted to drive to the arch to see how long it would take to walk to the Athena statue.

The realities are that we're a driving nation. @Jim: What are the realities that you would walk from your office to Clocked for lunch, then walk back? Slim or none? And that's just a few blocks. It takes time from your lunch hour - assuming you get an hour - or it pads your lunch hour into an hour and a half. And it's 95 degrees. So drive it is.

And lets face it, walkers don't line the coffers of the parking authority.

Naaaa. The limp spined DA will give him probation, and TWO ankle monitors.

For some reason the rest of society is punished for people like this. We're suffering the consequences, and we will continue to be punished till they eliminate the urgent desire to coddle repeat criminals to the detriment of the rest of the law abiding, working and taxpaying citizenry.

Obama to seek arms, training for Syrian opposition

Actually, they shouldn't be talking about this at all. They should be doing. Talk can be saved for later.

Or, they can talk, talk, talk, till the cows come home, blab all over the international news networks what they are going to do, give the enemy a heads up, and whatever ends up happening will cost US lives and be deemed a failure by historians.

Never brag about what you are going to do .... "We're going to follow them to the gates of hell!!" ... You just go kick their a** fast and hard and non stop till they're not a threat and their children and grandchildren are not a threat.

    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
