Men caught in drug deal in west Athens

A Barrow County deputy lives at River's Edge. I saw the car there every time I visited a friend on Sycamore. I used to cut through there coming from the bus stop. This was for the last year and up until a month ago.

Athens cyclist caught with pot

Oh, I totally agree with everything you are saying. He was expelled and prosecuted. I was only pointing out that it wasn't a family member. I just don't agree with Georgia's definition of "family" where the law is concerned. And pot should be legal. He was riding my bike, and staying at my place, and I was waiting for the pot, I mean my bike, to arrive. That's all I can say about that.

Athens cyclist caught with pot

@Humbucker bob: He is one of my best friends. He didn't attack a family member. . He was in a residential recovery program and was not allowed to talk to the females. One liked him and was talking to him one night. A houseparent stepped between them and he got into an argument and struck the houseparent. I don't see where they got "family violence".

Man charged with impersonating cop

[quote][b]Save our Republic[/b] - Why do you think that this arrest will not hold up? The guy told the cops he was a police officer, showed them an ID alluding as such, and they verified that he was NOT a cop![/quote]

I may be wrong - stranger things have happened - but I have always been under the impression that once someone is P.O.S.T. certified, they remain so unless convicted of a felony. So, technically he IS a police officer, just currently unemployed. There is nothing to suggest he intended to rape this girl; only that he wanted to impress her.

I worked with a John Patterson when I worked for the Grounds Dept. This can't be the same guy. This is nothing like the one I knew. I'll have to wait for the jail to post the pic.

8 sickened by synthetic marijuana in Brunswick

[quote][b]Captain Athens[/b] - So, your screen name would give people the impression you are a police officer: Code - officer in service, Code - officer beginning watch.[/quote]

No, that was never my intention. I do have 2 years college majoring in Criminal Justice, and 8 years experience as a security patrol officer, but it was never my intention to imply that I am in law enforcement. You are adding the word officer. The ten code 10-8 simply means "on duty". 10-41 means "in service". This means I am on duty and in service on the Athens Talks forum.

I used to know the Jeffries subject. I taught him how to drive a stick when he was 14. Long story. He has been in prison for the last 6 years, He just got released. I ran into him in Popeye's a month ago. No probation for him.

8 sickened by synthetic marijuana in Brunswick

I smoked it every day for two years (and still do when i can get hold of it). I only had a problem with it two times, and that was with some super strength stuff that was made here in Athens. I was not careful those two times (out of several thousand times) and smoked too much, and it was a little scary (but not enough to call an ambulance). In my opinion, these people did the same thing. If one is careful, and uses it sparingly, there are no problems. I have three friends who have used it several hundred times each and never had a problem. The media only reports the minute, few times there are problems. They never report the other side.

Athens panhandler charged with public masturbation

[quote][b]Tewise[/b] - The one that was panhandling at the entrance to eastside walmart, today is not homeless, has a very extensive criminal record plus his mother ran a very well known business. [/quote]

I know him well. We occasionally talk by phone. He has been living in a tent in a pole barn for the last 3 years. I have been there. His sister used to operate a wilderness camp. He is now living in the old bath-house. He has electricity and running water, but I wouldn't refer to his accommodations as a "home". Someone recently gave him a 15' x 30' tent and he is about to move back into a tent. Incidentally, he works as a dishwasher for a catering company at a downtown venue. Some weeks he works 60 hrs. On those weeks he doesn't panhandle. Last week he didn't work at all.

I just saw him in Bell's on Hawthorne Sunday night at 8:00pm. I think he was buying a magazine, but they don't sell porn.

Texas teenager finds his mother's body in freezer

[quote][b]The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald[/b] - BTW, there is no such law, which is why you have to take the door off or punch a hole in it when you scrap one.[/quote]

I've sold a bunch of both for scrap. I never did that, and neither Alewine's nor Omnisource told me I had to.

There is always the possibility that he put her there. Let's hope not.

Morgan County deputies find wanted man hiding in church

He must have been trying to make the dog mean. A friend of mine and I stopped by an acquaintance's apartment to visit for 5 minutes. They had just gotten a new pit bull puppy. My friend was petting it. It was really sweet. The man of the house called his son in the room and said "come get your dog" and the man's 10 year old son came in. He told his son, "you know what to do". The boy snatched it up by the ear, slapped it until it squealed, then carried it by the neck out of the room. My friend asked him why he was being mean to the sweet little puppy. The man said that's how you train a dog to attack people. I have not been back to visit.

Putting a microwave in a broken window to look like an a/c to conceal the damage... That's pretty smart for a guy that's otherwise an idiot. As desperate as this guy was, I'm amazed he was able to come up with that move considering how stressful this situation was.

11-year-old Athens girl suspected of twice burglarizing same house

The article doesn't say anything about custody. My guess, stereotypically speaking, is the single mother who lives with her parents was out trying to sell some of the items for a rock - but that's only a guess...

It's not unidentified. It's cyclospora. That seems to be a clear indication of an identity.

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
