4 UGA football players arrested, charged with theft by deception

Something must be done to send a clear message for all! A code of ethics must be enforced swiftly and completely. No "poor baby" or "well, they had a bad life".
Gosh folks, what will it take?

@Simplyamazed: Dear Ebb Tide 2,

I shall write "scary" 500 times and then strike my knuckles with a wooden ruler for the error of "scarey" vs. "scary".

Will that appease you as I did make a "human" error?

Really, your comment is ridiculous!

Graduation rate for minorities lags in Georgia

Student motivation, from the moment they walk in the door is the key. It is hard to compete with iPods, iPhones, etc., to engage in meaningful lessons in order to overcome years of worksheets and "behavior placeholders". My heart hurts for secondary professionals who have to battle twitter and everything else. Students will take suspension rather than lose their phone privileges for a while...High school teachers are tired of fighting the phone battle. I have no answers. If I did I would be along side Harry Wong in the bookstore. I have so much respect for the tireless efforts of CCSD teachers.

9-year-old moons bus driver, spits at police

DeKalb Co. principal says state unable to pay for AP test fees

Suck it up and pay for the tests. You can get college credit if performance is exemplary at a fraction of the costs. Darn, no free rides when I took them. The news report showed a very nice home where the concerned citizen resides. Mercy I am getting cranky regarding entitlements and expectations.

Should be made to clean all bars downtown with a toothbrush for a month. At least clean the floors and the store for a month, plus compensation for ruined merchandise.
Simply ridiculous

    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
