Oh, I know.....but I have about an hour drive each morning dropping off kids, getting to work, etc.
I bet I see a dozen every day.....at least, driving with them hanging.posted @ Friday, March 15, 2013 - 12:11
And plenty drive without them hanging because the tags decrease their range of vision.posted @ Friday, March 15, 2013 - 10:57

[quote][b]andic[/b] - This is actually really sad. This dude obviously has some severe mental illness and instead of getting proper treatment and follow-up, he's shuffled in and out of jail for petty crimes that are surely the result of his hampered mental capacities rather than actual nefarious criminal intent. Our society is so screwed up!!!
I would guess that he had quite a few altercations early in his "career" which were excused or treated thru the mental health community. How long do you get a pass before incarceration becomes an option?
I am sure all the libs who have ripped Rep. Broun for his son's digressions will be quick to do the same in this case.posted @ Monday, January 14, 2013 - 11:56

Hopefully they will be more courteous than the Spectacular Now folks who have been filming around my house all week.
Pulled out all their trucks this morning and left trash thrown in everybody's yard.
HOPEFULLY, they will send someone back to pick it up today.posted @ Thursday, August 30, 2012 - 11:49

Financially, there is so much wrong with this system. For example, my company sells something that every office needs. The CCSD repeatedly bids it out to get the best price. A couple of years ago, we contacted the procurement people and asked to review the situation to see if we could streamline what they were doing.
The answer....no. Just bid on replacing what we already have with something just like it.
Probably overspent by $200,000.posted @ Friday, July 6, 2012 - 15:54

[quote][b]fmrclarketchr[/b] - What does Montezuma have to do with this? Does it add to our understanding of the crime? Of the victim? Or does it make it easier
for people to figure out who she is?
Anonymous? Not for much longer.
Obviously, Montezuma is referenced for a tie in to the whole revenge part of the story at the end.....duh.

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
