Madison County mother charged in case of child found crawling on highway

@arches: Maybe so, but I really think this is more of a situation where they left the kids alone a lot to fend for themselves and this is the one time they got caught.

Father of 1-year-old girl found crawling on Madison County road is arrested

This seems like it was a long time coming with this guy. He's never been accused of being "father of the year" material and has angry outbursts at the slightest thing....guess the cops found that out the hard way. Kudos to the baby's rescuer! Prayers for the whole situation.

Shop that sold gun to Newtown mom loses license

@pumpkie: I have to agree...it isn't the shop owner's fault how people use their products. I'm hoping there is more to the story we just don't know about yet.

If something illegal was happening or the shop was failing to perform its legal duties for firearm sales, then yes, shut 'em down.

Scouts considering retreat from no-gays policy

Well, the flaw in that argument is that to chickens, foxes are predators by nature. Their instincts are to hunt for food as a means of survival.

Gay people are not predators by nature. Their instincts are not to molest children. Do some gay people commit such crimes? Yes. Do some straight people do the same thing? Yes. Do MOST individuals of either group molest children? No.

Scouts considering retreat from no-gays policy

Until one of their son's becomes a victim of sexual assault while in care of Boy Scouts. DON'T DO IT!

Even heterosexuals commit sex crimes against adolescents. Admitting openly gay people does not increase the chances of sexual abuse...if a person is mentally ill enough to commit such crimes against children, it doesn't much matter whether they are gay or straight.

Scouts considering retreat from no-gays policy

I'm happy to read this...equality for ALL is an absolute must during the formative years of our youth. Even if that means parents have to actually **parent** their children by teaching them about acceptance, honor, and respect--even when it involves those with different beliefs or lifestyles.

From my experience as a minion at UGA, I think Jere will do a phenomenal job. Excellent candidate! Commonsense leadership.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    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
