@Ben-Shockley: I can live with that scenario. But, it's not that easy. I shoot almost everyday, lots of combat and close quarters experience. I was awakened once, grabbed my gun, my eyes were scratchy, it was hard to see, not instantly 100%. It was a learning experience. I was an assaulter on the best SWAT team in the world, but alone, I was a little scared, Confident, ready, keyed up, but concerned. I came to eventually, but it took a while before I could hold my eyes open fully, they were dry. It was dark, but my eyes hurt. I was younger, in my prime. There were three thugs, they had the wrong address. I was vulnerable, despite my training, when sleeping, I was like anyone else. It was not the same as a direct action mission when I had the upper hand.
I haven't found a better system than a dog, or multiple dogs to counter intruders. People should adopt more dogs.
Shooting well is not easy. It's expensive to train as I do. I can shoot $200 in ammo per day and still not always make the perfect shot. Great guitar players need to warm up, it's the same with shooting. Not to mention the mental side of pulling the trigger and shooting another human. I have a pistol with a tactical light and grip switch very handy at all times, and I am not a heavy sleeper, but still would hate to wake up with a stranger already in my bedroom.posted @ Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 00:03

@2dollar: Nice. Thanks for pitching in. I was volunteering, same type of work, but in Oconee. Clean up work. Trips to the dump. At least all my trail tools work for this project as well. See ya at Heritage Mickey. Hope you can make it. I suggested the SWAP meet since we have use of the pavilion. Not looking to raise a lot of cash, but it should be fun.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 23:57
Leaving the scene, not right. I hope this never happens to me. I would hate to hit someone, or be hit. I have known many who have been hit, none fatal. I miss the road bike, it's collecting dust because there are few places I feel safe riding it. I have been thinking I need to get back on it. If I die, at least I will be in better shape.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:32
@Used2baFreeCountry: Maybe I was younger, busy, and not paying attention in the past. But, it seems these people are getting away with quite a lot. I am not impressed by any of the politicians these days. Seems anyone honest has no chance. I think selfish describes many of them. Hard for me to relate to. I always thought of the big picture. Even now I sacrifice for the good of the whole. Much of the time, when I think about it, I feel like I am being taken advantage of.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:24
@2dollar: Also, 1 June, Saturday, Heritage Park, trail maint 10-2 followed by a cookout. I am bringing a ton of tools. Also bringing a trailer size BBQ grill. Under the pavilion, bathrooms open, gate will be open so volunteers can park at the pavilion. Easy projects, want it to be fun, then party and ride if you like.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:16
@2dollar: I was over there a bit in the beginning of the construction. Helped a good bit then. I hiked it one day just before it opened, but I haven't actually ridden it. I know Twilight TT was there, but I made a couple trips out West lately and missed it. What I don't like about EACP is leaving a vehicle unattended. Even during construction, it was a risk to leave a vehicle at the trail head. One of the guys had his vehicle broken into early in the construction phase. It's a cool section, short. I live in Oconee. You can likely ride there on your bike.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:13

When I first saw this headline, I was hoping the police busted burglars with stolen property. I was disappointed when it was just the counterfeit items vendors.
I have never been to the J&J. The people running the illegal gambling out of convenience stores get away with it. One of my attorney friends said it's hard to prove the vendors themselves didn't know the items were counterfeit. I guess if selling counterfeit items was my business, I would default to being unwitting.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 09:10

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
