@DanMatthews: According to USPS, the Epps Bridge corridor in Oconee County has an Athens zip code and is considered an Athens mail route. But, the proud folks of the OC know where all those new tax dollars are going!

Autopsy shows woman's death in Oconee County Jail was suicide

@jo15765: What's up with accusing Mr. Carson of a cover up? And since when is Oconee a "backward county?". Sheriff Berry and his staff are top notch and some of the most professional law enforcement officers in Georgia. I think you're way off base!

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.
