Hull teen who spent money wrongly put in bank account charged with theft

I hate to see him get a criminal conviction for the bank's error. It should be a civil matter.

Athens woman accused of murdering newborn could be headed to trial

There is no defense they can possibly come up with to keep her out of jail. I hope they lock her up and throw away the key.

Authorities continue investigating death of UGA student in west Athens

Someone help me understand just how far a walk this would be... From the Science Library to where she was found? Is it 3 or 4 miles, and with hills? Are sidewalks there?
She would have been walking in the dark. Strange!

Athens man charged with murder for shooting at Tivoli Apartments

I think it's time for ACC to exercise eminent domain and bulldoze slums like Tivoli!

6 Ga. schools to begin dual-language programs

Seems like we should focus on the basic 3 R's and get our graduation rates up before spending money on this program.

Athens woman reports man for urinating

Strange how the USA society seems to be reverting to the untamed 19th century. No longer the civilized society we had 50 years ago. Guess that's progress. Sad.

Nash: Let's amend the 14th Amendment

The United States is always looking for cheap labor. Eventually the children of these illegals will be "educated out" of these type of jobs and we'll have to look elsewhere for people to take advantage of. I believe it is time to close the borders and eliminate anchor babies. Let the onion growers pay a living wage or figure a way to automate their harvest.

Athens doctor accused of sexually assaulting patient fights to reduce charges

I was a patient of Dr Adams and I believe that he would not have forced himself on a female. My guess is that there developed an improper relationship which he must have ended and she may be seeking revenge. Hell has so fury as a woman scorned!

He has already been convicted in the court of public opinion. I'm glad I don't have to sit on a jury for this one!

Georgia Supreme Court upholds Athens-Clarke County stormwater fees

@King Minos:
I believe nonprofits should pay this fee as well as property taxes. Perhaps a larger "homestead exemption" could be used to provide some relief, but otherwise they should be subject to all taxes and fees.

Athens Mayor and Commission push Buena Vista historic designation

@melmarino:
Southeast Clarke county has become the destination for low income housing. There's plenty of run down rental units since the UGA students have been run off by the high crime rate. This area is well served by the bus system. So why not designate some of the downtown neighborhoods as historic and bring them back to their glory days. The Eastside is hopeless so let's just let it go.

    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
