Georgia girl struck by plane on Florida beach dies

My thoughts exactly, OCC. What's a plane compared to two lives GONE and countless others (the family) damaged?

Turner Field to host naturalization ceremony

I just wish all the naysayers could attend this ceremony and see just what citizenship means to all these people.

On the other hand, maybe not, because you probably just wouldn't "get it"....

Admitted Athens cop killer in court today acting as own attorney

No, I'm saying that I am a liberal and I think the justice system in this county is a mockery, but not by my doing.

And just to clear things up, I don't support the death penalty but if there was ever anyone who deserved it, this is it! And I know Jamie personally.....

Agreement to protect flower across Southeast

"Under the deal, those signing the agreement promise not to blanket areas with herbicides, which can kill the aster, and instead spray chemicals only where needed."

If they can get Georgia Power to really NOT "blanket areas with herbicides", then maybe that will lead them to stop the practice altogether in all areas. Great swaths of dead vegetation look hideous!

Sheriff: Significant trauma for man killed in Reynolds Plantation

@Eidolon: How do you figure that he was the medalist in canoeing in the Olympics? The Wikipedia entry says that the Olympian was born in 1936, but news reports say this man was 88.

    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.

    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
