UGA to be 1 of 2 groups supplying Obamacare navigators

God help us all...hiring and training X (insanely large) number of people and training them by October 1 to advise others on health insurance? UGA's quest for Federal indirects trumps reason.

Developer nixes Walmart, but continues with downtown Athens project

Great, now maybe we can have several more 'vintage' stores stuffed with character where we can be ignored by the local owner who whines about corporations while simultaneously paying his or her own employees their pittance in coins so they can more easily run outside to plug the parking meter that they've occupied for the duration of their 3.5 hour shift, all the while wondering why there aren't any customers.

Broun questions jobs report

The good doctor is brilliant. Over the course of just a few days he's demonstrated his prowess as a labor economist, a survey statistician, and a geoscientist. And, lest we forget, he gave up his medical practice to become a representative not just because he wanted to protect others' hunting rights, but because he was hand-selected by God (I don't recall whether God called during or after the one of his narrow escapes from the predators). We are SO fortunate to have this good doctor representing us.

Sunday alcohol sales fails by 1 vote in Ga. town

Mom and Pop can undoubtedly do the math if they have a successful shop. If the MR>MC or MR=MC, open. If not, don't open. They make that decision for the other six days of the week; I'm confident they can make it for the seventh just like the rest of us who choose to (or must) work on Sunday.

How to recover classes?

The university professors can simply talk 6% faster each day. Or, they can cut 6% of their course lectures--they should be good at cutting that amount as they've repeatedly cut everything else in roughly 6% increments over the past several years.

Census shows bleak poverty numbers

Please, people. The Census Bureau conducts numerous surveys throughout each and every year, not just the once-every-ten-years Decennial Census. One of the many, many surveys they conduct is the American Community Survey, which is the survey from which the estimates in this article are calculated (as noted in the article). By the way, the 'official' poverty estimates come from yet another survey called the Current Population Survey, but that one doesn't offer county-level estimates. Whereas there is an obligation to respond to the Decennial Census, NO ONE is required to respond to the American Community Survey or Current Population Survey. Even with the Decennial Census response obligation, I'd love for one of you to please point me to one person who has been prosecuted for 2010 Decennial Census non-response. You may now return to your conspiracy theory construction.

    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
