This is great news. Now I won't have to cross state line to buy my fireworks when I celebrate getting my new pet hedgehog. Laughing out loud

'Failing' label for Gaines Elementary surprises Clarke school officials

@Athens Trojan: The problem that I see is that CCSD has been making the chicken salad for so long that nobody knows it's being made from chicken manure. I guess if you eat it long enough it tastes just fine.

Gunshot fired on UGA campus in dispute between fraternities

@ElevatorLady: I agree. Ammo is too expensive to waste. He wouldn't be doing this if mommy and daddy didn't buy it for him.

Woman loses $15,000 to phone scammers

The only way these scams work is because there is no shortage of greedy people. Common sense should tell you that something is not right but I guess if you are that greedy and that stupid common sense is not one of your strong suits.

Handgun taken from car in Athens parking lot

Sounds like the car was not locked or she sold the gun. Something ain't right with this one.

@OCCountry: The problem with that is with all the budget cuts the rope would only be 4 feet long.

Man convicted in Pilgrim's Pride murder seeks new trial

A new trial would be a waste of time and money. He would still get life in prison.

I'm afraid that IS is not going to lose.

BTW, does anyone know who the guy on the horse is in the background behind Obama?

Athens police seize weapons following response to potential gang fight

Maybe a place could be set up for these groups of young men to settle their disputes. It would be kinda like the Thunder Dome. Two gangs enter, no gangs leave.

Survivor of USS Arizona from Pearl Harbor attack dies at 100

@DB: So true. And there will never be another generation as great as they were. Sometimes I think that the children and grandchildren that took the time to learn from them may be the last hope for a lost nation.

Death-penalty opponents rally at state Capitol

I would think that someone that commits a murder or has someone else do it for them treats God's beloved children like disposable objects and they should be executed quickly.

    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
