Goodbye Old Friend

[quote][b]jtsim[/b] - Joel, all I can say is that as long as the cat knows it's loved when it is it's time to leave you what more can we ask for. We should all be this blessed when our time is up.[/quote]

I couldn't agree more.

Goodbye Old Friend

@jtsim: I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I've been dealing with medical issues with my 14-year-old cat so I can totally sympathize.

After this week, I won't be posting at all. My contract with the Banner-Herald ends this week. I have a new full time job lined up.

Winter Storm Drama And Fixing The Oscars

@nowheregirl: Chris White is the director of audience. Andrea is in a different position. I believe she is a community engagement editor now. You can email her at andrea.griffith@onlineathens.com.
I hope this helps.

@theold33: I let Chris know about the outdated blogs several months back. There's nothing else I can do but let him know. Sorry.

There's a new 'World's Ugliest Dog'

@nowheregirl: Honestly, every time I look at his picture, I can't stop laughing. I feel bad since he is ugly because he was abused.

I haven't gone anywhere. I am being pulled to work more on OnlineAthens and it takes up some of the time I have allotted to contract for the paper. I will try to post more often but I need you guys to spread the word and get others to start reading, commenting and posting discussions, too.

Why does Athens Talks no longer have a spot on front page ?

@grove600: In the case of the 2 blogs to your right on Athens Talks, Chris just needs to make a decision to disable that panel to hide the queue since staff blogs are no longer presented that way. I don't even think he even knows that exists. He had very little to do with Athens Talks before taking on his current role. I will mention it to him. It is his call.

New Apple Mac, mobile features coming this fall

I haven't been very happy with Mavericks. Ever since I upgraded to it last year, my iMac won't identify non-Apple devices when I plug them in to it. I hope Yosemite fixes that problem.

I have no idea where you got this idea from... Smile

Are you talking about the staff blogs or the community blogs?
The staff blogs are no longer being updated and blogs are being posted with the rest of the stories.
Community blogs are filled in by members of the community.

Avoiding the middle seat could cost you

Basically... yes.

[quote][b]grove600[/b] - Besides, Joel isn't management. He's a "consultant" making the big bucks. Right Joel?[/quote]

I am a freelance contractor and have no management authority at all. As for "big bucks," that remains to be seen. Smile

    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
