Man killed on Athens Perimeter identified

Oh, and one more comment...don't feel too badly that these women "have to live with this" the rest of their lives...those of us who knew Evan have to live with this the rest of OUR lives and WE didn't get any voice in McWhorter's and Giles' actions. If they are eaten up with guilt, they should be, they have taken away someone who was productive, well, well-loved and nothing they do will make it right, period. They are fortunate that God forgives if they are repentent.

Man killed on Athens Perimeter identified

All of the comments warm my heart...over 200 people attended the service for Evan...he touched so many lives. Yet, we have not heard from the UNINSURED Theresa Sherrell McWhorter, whose vehicle should NOT have been on the road in the first place since she is uninsured and thus had she been compliant with the law, Evan would never have been there...or from Sara Mechelle Giles, who apparently was overdriving her headlights and did not see the static reflection of McWhorter's tail- lights, the flashers on Evan's vehicle and didn't bother to slow down as she killed my son. This Thanksgiving, these women should be thankful that I have law licenses to protect because they deserve NO consideration whatsoever. Both women were negligent, they each breached duties resulting in Evan's death and being the direct and proximate cause of same, with the resulting damages. Since his father's death, Evan was the caregiver, making sure his mom was taken care of. They have taken that away. Still waiting for the final reports but so far that's the take on things...Will they be criminally cited? I sincerely hope so....will they be sued civilly? Absolutely. Just an update.

Thank you for the kind comments. Evan is my son and it is devastating to lose him.

Pedestrian killed on Athens Perimeter

To those of you who posted kind words, I thank you. My son, Evan Lilly, is the good samaritan who is now dead. Regardless of fault, that one fact remains. After his father died three years ago, he stepped up to take care of his mama. He was a good friend and will be missed by many. I will be interested to see what the police report says when it is available on Tuesday.

    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
