Athens police catch men painting pylons

The judge in this case needs to send a clear message. Giving them the maximum fine would do that.

Increased gas tax could improve state infrastructure, officials say

Poppycock!!! Gasoline and diesel are taxed enough. Fuel should not be the "go to" tax source as are alcohol and tobacco.

Broun cosponsoring bill to legalize medical marijuana nationwide

Where are all the liberal/progressive piranha? Summer sucks them away to their relative's beach and mountain homes.

Aggressive panhandler arrested after asking off-duty Athens cop for money

This guy has an arrest record longer than this article. He's a fixture downtown (as are ten others) and has been doing this same s&*t for decades, yet he is turned loose on the rest of us over and over. He had a crack pipe and a bottle of whiskey, proof positive where the money goes when suckers give panhandlers cash.

Restaurant health inspections in Clarke County for June 3-18

I'm guessing there's a new inspector in town.

Who pays for first lady's fabulous fashions?

Is anyone surprised by the hyrocrisy anymore? The champions of the poor and middle class taking advantage of every fluffy perk offered by fame seeking fellow hypocrites? This is a perfect example of welfare for the privileged, something conservatives are criticized for 24/7. God help us if this nonsense is high on the list of what will motivate women to vote for a woman to be our next president. Laura Bush is mature and classy as she always is. No doubt the Kardashian centric Yahoo news and Huffington Post will reprint this article but will probably omit the part about Mrs. Bush paying her own way.

Democrats vote to expand Medicaid, raise minimum wage

I love these loaded "Show me the money" ballot questions.

Democrats see best turnout in Athens early voting

A higher Republican turnout would have been news worthy. Come on ABH. Do you have to be so partisan?

Obama praises Biden, but doesn't endorse for 2016

If we had term limits we wouldn't be dealing with his embarassing nonsense. He would have been gone in the mid 80s.

Grimes: More equitable tax structure would make America a better place

We all pay enough tax as it is. Get off that bandwagon. The federal government must be accountable to the last dime for the trillions it already takes in. The rampant waste and pork barrel politics is inexcusable. No amount of tax is enough for the national socialists.

Athens man, 45, in and out of prison his entire adult life arrested again

There is a long list of these career criminals roaming the streets of Athens Clarke County that have no observable redeeming qualities. Many inhabit downtown pestering and harassing all in their path.

$1 trillion student loan debt widens US wealth gap

Another class warfare infomercial from the AP. The lawyer obviously wants it all right now, and the author should grow up also.

Justice Scalia talks Constitution in Atlanta

This is the third day that the ABH has kept this article active. Why so long??
Were they disappointed the liberals were a no show the first two days considering the hatred that the local leftists have for all things right of center including Scalia? Must be the cool weather.

Georgia Senate panel green lights bill restricting state Obamacare help

"The unaffordable care act" Much to the dismay of many liberals the ACA has been popularly rebranded Obamacare. I for one would be in favor of foregoing the term Obamacare for the spot on UCA (unafforable care act), but only if it has a subscript that reads as follows: This law is Barack Obama's signature piece of legislation during his eight years as president.

Vice President Joe Biden to visit Atlanta

No doubt we will hear that patronizing phony southern drawl that he uses when addressing African Americans.

Wig Out: Downtown Athens loses another retailer in Lee's Wigs

The parking situation continues to stifle downtown business. There is no question of that. The remedy is simple. Lower the price and reduce the fines. Yes, students will park for class and employees and owners will park on the meters, but it was with that scenario that downtown thrived. Now most of the businesses are crying that business is slow to very slow. Combine a hostile parking environment with a weak economy and what were once good businesses are crippled then killed.

Government lets banks, marijuana sellers do business

It's been reported that credit card companies don't want to get involved with the legal pot business either. That means they are CASH businesses. If it's a cash business I guarantee that money is going straight into the owner's and employee's pockets undocumented. For that stolen money there is no sales tax, federal withholding, Fica, Federal unemployment, state unemployment, and every other tax based on sales volume and payroll, being collected. Unless there is a full time state employee (auditor) in each store watching every transaction and documenting daily receipts the above scenario is what's happening.

27K without power in Georgia, but Athens area OK so far

As of 8:00 this morning we see very little ice accumulating on trees here in north Oconee. Precipitation is sleet. Hope it stays that way.

Players, fans react to Grantham's departure on social media

We all knew, and kept getting the impression, that Georgia was just a stop over
for Grantham. We are seriously getting our hopes up for a big time DC if TG made 850K and left for 1M. If we go over 1M for a DC the North Campus National Socialists will rip the football program from here to eternity, and that would set off a cascade of raises throughout the whole Athletic Dept. Look for an in house promotion or a small college DC who has had success and will receive a salary between 900K and 1M.

Grantham leaving Georgia for Louisville

This is a great opportunity to rebuild the defense in the image of Erk Russell. That would be a 4 - 3 with two azz kickin defensive ends, a take-no-prisoners group of linebackers, and a no bend no break game plan.

    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
