The 5th admendment plea was first used by gangsters. Now it is used by IRS employees. Who would have thought?posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 10:29
While Dupuy is a despicable writer, the real problem is the tax code. When we have an irrational set of laws, we can not think people will act rationally to said laws. If one is following the law, they are within their rights. To blame someone for following the law is just stupid. The whole point of her arguement is moot.posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 10:26
We should have never bailed the big banks out in the first place. If there are not consequences to your actions, this behavior will be repeated. Getting the governement out of the process will only help things in the long run.posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 09:47
All those communities need is a good organizer...posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 17:36
So who is really in charge? Sounds like no one wants to take responsibility for their actions. This is the real danger of having a large government agency that no one seems to be able to control.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 08:11
it is hoped that all will see the danger here. It might be the Tea Party today, but it could be your favorite organization tomorrow. The targeting of one group is just wrong and must be stopped.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 08:01
Maybe he just didn't understand what Shot Gun Start meant?posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 17:46
Well, that seems fair enough. One can read or not read eitherposted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 13:59
As a member of the press, he should know that it is not acceptable to be critical of this administration...
Maybe if the press had done a little work instead of cheerleading, this might not have happenedposted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 08:36
Very true. You can't run away...Seems like the kids grew up with their heads on their shoulders thoughposted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 08:32
Four Americans were killed and Durst writes that it is no big deal...
Always felt Dupuy was the worst writer this paper carries, but Durst has reached a new low.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 08:30
Either way, Holder is not responsible...posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 14:26
Mr Martin is just going to hurt someone's feelings and lower their self esteem. The dumbing down of our educational system has dumbed down the population. We teach to the lowest level and are then surprised with the results. The schools are not a replacement for good parenting and support but we have made the educators take on problems that are outside of the teaching.
That and the fact that no one is responsible for their own actions...posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 13:38
We could eliminate the abuse by eliminating the IRS...and we can throw the baby out with the bath water. What a waste of newspaper space.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 08:00
What did you expect from John Kerry's campaign manager?posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 08:24
The look of passive leadership comes with someone who has never been in charge of anything before taking the most powerful position in the land. Almost feel sorry for him as the job is so far over his head.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 08:20
Maybe he'll have them audited....posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 16:28
The IRS is not to take sides and treat everyone according to the law. Any thing less than that is wrong. This abuse is the crucial issue and nothing else.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 10:30
With a growing and aging population, we are going to need more doctors. Having them trained in the local area is a major plus. Good to see the state and local hospitals looking ahead to the future needs.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 10:11
Too bad he is the Attorney General...
Since the Justice Department reports to him, he is responsible and accountableposted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 15:58
Amazing the party loyality no matter which side is lying...
Telling the truth would help both parties and the American peopleposted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 11:51
A breach of our first constitutional right is just scary. If the government can break one, they will break all of them. Amazing the first 10 state what the government can't do and after that, they all give the government more powerposted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 09:34
What we need to combat is not the weapons but the reasons why people would want to harm others.posted @ Monday, May 13, 2013 - 08:53
They can leave anytime they want. Profits may be lower and/or prices may be higher but the safety of the workers needs to play a bigger role.posted @ Monday, May 13, 2013 - 08:49
This is a cold, hard fact and should have everyone scared. Remember that a government big enough to give you everything is a government big enough to take everything. Can't believe their is not more outrage about this from all sides. I know this is nothing new but that doesn't make it any less wrong.posted @ Monday, May 13, 2013 - 08:47

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
