We know for a fact that the police didn't use a stun gun.

Teen accused of bringing gun into school cafeteria

Thank God for grandparents. Many times they can get through to a kid when the parents can't.

Athens man brutally beats girlfriend

@snarkydude: I have never been able to understand it either. And that's just one more thing that I am thankful for.

Theater shooting victim's parents sue ammo seller

Why not include the gun dealers as well? Or the companies that made the guns used? Or the owner of the theater?

Just remember that one third goes to the money grubbing lawyers.

Woman assaulted at Athens homeless camp

And I bet she has a better phone that I have. I wonder if she posted something on farcebook that got her boyfriend teed off.

This just another waste of time and resources that the police have to deal with.

Huckaby: Sho' 'nuff good to hear old Southernisms

I have always where the cows had been when they came home. If you know where the phrase "fair to middling" came from you can have another piece of cornbread.

Today's editorial cartoon

The best way to defeat your enemy is to take away their will to fight. It worked in Vietnam and it will work again in the Middle East. We don't have Sherman, Jackson, Patton around anymore and we don't have the support of the American people any more.

There are a lot more of them that want to die for what they believe in than there are of us. I don't see and end to this any time soon.

Homeless man charged with trespassing at Athens book store

@snarkydude: Being banned for two years from a book store is nothing to laugh about. He had to stay away for three months. Now he will be banned for four years and it may be six months before he can come back as a greeter.

Her expression says it all. She knew what she was doing and she knows nothing will happen to her.

Rare Footage of Civil War Veterans Doing the Rebel Yell

An old vet from Ohio was asked to describe what the rebel yell sounded like. He said it was the most chilling sound he had ever heard. And any man that ever heard it and was not scared to death was a damn liar.

Teen trashes his Athens home

I remember being an unruly child. What I remember most is that my father made sure I didn't want to be unruly again.

Athens police looking for alleged shooter

@grove600: Ankle monitors have been in use for many years. The best kind were the low tech version that had a short piece of chain connected to a heavy metal ball.

Students rally for teacher who talks about faith

I am glad to see the students support Mr. Osborne. That's more than we can say for a bunch of gutless school "officials" that are shaking in their flip flops because that may offend some whiney liberals. He sounds like a good teacher that the kids like and respect. We need more like him.

And we all know that too many parents are not taking care of their kids. And that's where the BS smell is coming from.

Sheriff: Watkinsville woman won't face charges for shooting dog

    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
