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.

    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
