Obscene photo sent to Athens teen

This is one stupid woman. I sure hope her daughter has better sense.

Athens cop assaulted

@OCCountry: The problem is that this guy and his friends know that your friends, and mine, can't do anything without it being called a stupid assault against a person of color.

If you fight with a LEO it shouldn't matter what color you are as long as you end up toting an azz whupping. And it wouldn't take but a few before the work got out that being polite is a good idea.

HOPE Scholarship a good deal, but not what it once was

The more tickets you buy the better my chances are of my grand daughter getting into a good college.

Or better yet just give me half of what you spend on the lottery. That way you won't be holding up the line for folks like me that just want to pay for a cup of coffee.

Athens woman reports ankle-monitored son as missing

Can the police not monitor the ankle monitor to find out where he is?

Madison County man goes 'over the river and through the woods' with deputy on his trail

Grandma should have pinched his head off a long time ago. Any stupid redneck should know you don't wear a red shirt with olive shorts.

UGA student clad only in jockstrap treated for injuries suffered at west Athens apartment complex

@OCCountry: I guess it depends on where you are while clad only in a jock strap. In a men's locker room, no. Standing outside an apartment complex at 1:00 am makes you wonder.

Madison Co. school board votes to modify Christian monument at high school

@Kwijibo Junior: I never said to take the case to court. I said find out if the other side wants to fight it or just sent letters. Call their hand and find out just how serious they are.

Madison Co. school board votes to modify Christian monument at high school

Madison Co. school board votes to modify Christian monument at high school

@edwardb: Do you know the person that gave the monument to the school? I understand that the same person that gave the monument to the school also paid for the new field house as well.

Unless you know this person how can you say if they are a Christian or not.

Just another liberal assumption.

Madison Co. school board votes to modify Christian monument at high school

What doesn't make sense is that the school board rolled over and played dead. They received letters from two groups that were against the monument and the fact that it had Bible verses engraved on it. Letters don't mean much unless you back up what you say you are going to do. The school board should have told them to bring their game to Danielsville and if it got down to a real lawsuit then offer to change it.

Harrop: Hell of driving gets millenials out of cars

I'm glad that many younger people are not driving much. They are too busy playing with their phones to pay attention to what's going on around them. I feel safer already.

Truck stolen from motel parking lot

If he put his back in the back of the truck where did he put his front? Under the hood? How did he drive away if his front and his back were not attached to each other?

Athens man calls police after argument over Gurley suspension

    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
