Forest plan draws fire in north Georgia mountains

It is very strange to me that there are so many so called professional land managers out there, who seem to know everything in the world about Forest Management. I wonder if they also advise there Doctor how to provide treatment for them. These environuts have no idea about the life span, of trees, nor how best to keep the forest healthy, but they think they profess to have the education, experience, and wisdom to tell the real professional managers how to do their job.

'Spiritual awakening' prompts Danielsville man to disrupt church service

Have you ever noticed that some of the most critical comments about other areas come from the people in the Athens Area that also have the most comments? Could it be that these people have nothing better to do than demean other people? That they think they are superior to other people?

Mixed reaction in Georgia to calls for lower DUI limit

@jonlester: You are right on...Look at that nut that supported the .05, but suggested that she be allowed all the pot she wanted...Good example of people wanting to control other people, but want other people to leave them alone.

Madison County employees suspended in wake of probe

This is not good for the County....Commissioner Dove and sheriff Thomas are both doing an excellent job for the County...You should get together and settle this. Dove runs the County...The Sheriff provides the security and law enforcement. It is that simple.

Burglar runs after breaking in on armed UGA student

@ptmmac:

Yes, I know what it to kill someone....When it is your life or theirs, and they are trying to take your Country, or to break into your home, it is you against them. Wishfull thinking that they will not harm you or your loved ones will get you or them killed. Which is worse. Killing in combat to save your life, killing a killer to save your life or your love one, or trusting that the man kicking in your door means you no harm.

I am with the landlord/......People that expect to stay in a house without paying rent are not easy to deal with under current regulations. It seems that this society expects to get everything free

Tifton trying to make roads safer for bike riders

@TeeWee:

You have brought up a point that I have been saying for years...If bike riders want to ride on the roads, lets get legislation to make them buy tags. That way they would help pay for the paved roads they want to ride on. I dont object to bike riders, just that they get a free ride.

Senate panel ready to OK gun background checks

You are right on grove600...Do the dumb gun control people really think that a man or woman would care about the stealing a gun law, when he is going to commit a murder?

Study Break: Undocumented students face hurdles to higher ed

Are any of you bleeding hearts aware that the U.S. Government has stopped paying tuition for marines and army personnel, and some states are paying for citizens of other countrys that are here by sneaking in across our borders?

Lets take care of the people that are american citizens!

Senator still grumbling over power shift

What part of 42 to 12 does this nut not understand! The Senate only has a limited amount of time to take up the important issues facing the state, and he wants to speak about this every day???

Ga. Senate passes weak cap on lobbyist gifts

Our local Senators are so much better than those in the National Senate that we should be praising them for their service, not crawling out from under a holier than thou rock to think they can be bought by $100. The political point of view of most of these comments is evidently that of Harry Reid and his blind followers in the U.S. Senate.

If this story was not coming from the County with the most residents who are educated beyond their intellegence I would be concerned, But since it is, I just wonder why the Newspaper keeps up this kind of non strory.

    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
