UGA DL Taylor arrested for aggravated assault

Bring completely unprepared young men to campus, give them a major in early childhood education, pray that they're adaptable, unleash them on the student population. What a plan. Welcome to big-money college athletics.

Police: Prostitute sought defense online in death

I read in another article that one of her "occupations" is also part-time makeup artist.

A case of "physician heal thyself."

Karen Handel endorses Jack Kingston for U.S. Senate

Herschel Walker endorsed Kingston, too!

I guess that means two people who never went to college are endorsing him!

(Cue rimshot)

Edward Snowden says he was a trained spy

@scarborj:

I really was just having fun with the Bob Sacamano reference.

It stands to reason however that if he had aliases as he says and since his face and story are recognizable worldwide, someone might come forward and say, "Yes, I worked with Edward Snowden and he presented himself as (______________)."

Edward Snowden says he was a trained spy

I guess we'll know whether or not he's telling the truth when/if someone from another country comes out and says, "I thought his name was Bob Sacamano!"

If that doesn't happen, then why should we believe him?

UGA football legend Herschel Walker endorses Jack Kingston in Senate race

The same Herschel who claims to have multiple personalities?

The same Herschel who fell asleep in the garage with his car running?

The same Herschel who was functionally illiterate during his college years?

Doesn't show great judgement by Mr. Kingston in my opinion.

Protesters interrupt Regents meeting, get arrested

I'm glad to see young people expressing their freedoms of speech and assembly to protest something they feel strongly about.

Too often it seems like this generation is self absorbed.

Whether or not you agree with their cause, be glad that they are coming out from behind their computers and Facebook profiles to take action.

Trio charged with meth possession at Oconee shopping center

Question: I notice often in these booking/jail photos that their hair looks wet as in the case of Ms. Witcher. Does anyone know why? Are they required to take a shower before they enter jail?

My God bless and comfort Mr. Gerosquieta's family and the Pinewood Estates community as they reckon with the pain of this tragic loss.

Athens man arrested for beating teen caught in shower with stepdaughter

Imagine the inverse headline: Athens man stands by as 16-year-old stepdaughter and boyfriend shower together.

Now which is worse?

It sounds like the boyfriend's mother is the real troublemaker.

Updated: 4 UGA football players arrested on theft by deception charges

This is what happens when we admit young men to an institute of higher learning who if not for their athletic prowess would never have the chance to set foot on a college campus.

It's a Faustian bargain: They know the only reason they're here is to win football games and make money for the university; we know the same thing; they think to themselves rightfully so, "Why the hell aren't we getting some of that money?"; we say, "You're getting paid in the form of a free education"; they say, "I don't want a free education. I want the money.."

And, by the way, they are not getting a free education. Truthfully, they're kept eligible by NCAA standards during their time here by being steered into meaningless classes and leave with no marketable skills.

See crap reporting like this -- basically assassinating this kid's character for making a phone call -- makes me glad I'm not paying to read the news on this web site.

Ga. members of Congress sign letter on harbor snub

Aren't these the same guys who decry federal spending? What a joke.

And they'll be having their pictures taken at the ribbon cutting so they can show it to their hypocrite constituents. "Look at what I brought to the district !"

UGA audit on work of fired employee reveals no improprieties

They may have jumped the gun but this is why:

Vinson has a history of employing people who appreciate the vig and I'm sure it's a little nervous about Ms. Hawkes even if she's been cleared of UGA problems.

Been sitting back watching the Barney Fife-lovin, Columbo, Murder She wrote-rerun-watching idiots make fools of themselves.

    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
