Heard reflects on 20 years in state government

@Jefferson River:

Well, of course, but your former representative easily answered emails because he was 80 miles away, on the other side of Atlanta where he permanently lives. I bet you wouldn't have been able to ask him a question in person unless he was running for re-election or you were in Atlanta (or if he was being honored at an event in Athens). Just saying.

It's a disgrace that Keith Heard is telling people he's going to "take his seat back." I bet Frye and his brain trust will be ready to roll if Heard dares.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s

Oconee sheriff boycotts gun dealer over gun ban to public

Yeah, the last thing we need in this area is another backwoods redneck playing political games with public perception. You best bet we're deploying several PACs to your area with tens-of-thousands-of-dollars to educate people about who Scott Berry 'really' is and what he stands for.

Let's discuss Smithgate, shall we?

    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
