Prisoner at jail in Athens apparently commits suicide

The question I have is the jail knew he had psychiatric issues as well as substance abuse issues why did they not watch him more closely?

Prisoner at jail in Athens apparently commits suicide

I personally knew him. He was not his image. He was a sweet creative soul who only wanted to be loved. If he had grown up in a different place and time he would have been a very productive person.

Food stamp rolls swell in Georgia

@mcudab: then you should report the store. They can and will take away the store's ability to process EBT. Actually several stores in athens can no longer process EBT because of abuse. The Citgo on Gaines School Road is a perfect example of this. The store would let people buy whatever they wanted. Someone reported them and they lost EBT

Federal report documents inmate sex abuse in US

@CharlotteLadyGardner: From what I understand when an inmate reports abuse, the officials take lying in to account. They do a very complete investigation. Sometimes, the inmate will save DNA evidence.

Athens-Clarke police identify suspect in multi-county wallet theft spree

@matt1141a: They have the worst security. I had to drop off afterschool clothes for my niece in January of this year, remember this was right after the shootings in Newtown. I was allowed to wander around the school without anyone asking me any questions. I called my sister to let her know what had happened and she called the school to "inquire" ghetto style ( you have to understand my sister is the angry badger type it was not pretty) Less than two months later this clown is allowed to wander into the school. Very scary

More child sex-assault charges for Athens maintenance man

@ppensyl: I think it should be an automatic death sentence. The impact of child molestation is life long. I think it would make a child feel safe knowing this person will never hurt them or someone else again.

Waitress fired for posting customer comment online

@E.J.: A big difference is you can control how the food flows out of the kitchen by the way you send an order to the kitchen.. With three 4 tops you have the food come out a different times so you can make sure each table has exactly what they need to enjoy their meal.

Waitress fired for posting customer comment online

@kayron4: I waited tables in college and large tables were a nightmare. You get people running you back and forth to the kitchen, not knowing what they want and my favorite forgetting what they ordered. The absolute worst is Sunday lunch after church some of the rudest people I had ever met.

Atlanta police officer halts prison smuggling attempt

@E.J.: Just because someone is in Prison doesn't mean their families and friends cannot send money. As stupid as it sounds smuggling into a prison is very lucrative business. Being a guard in prison does not pay a lot of money. All that is required to become a guard is a clean criminal background and to be able to pass a physical.

@Ellie Mae: Great point. I know whenever I have a party I inform my neighbors and I also invite them. Yes it is great to know your neighbors but it is up to us to make the effort.

    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
