Social media among threats to greeting card makers

I like sending cards, but the higher price of cards coupled with the always rising postage prices, keeps me from sending them as often as I used to. My exception is at Christmas, and even then, my mailing list has been drastically cut.

Underage drinker gives false information, says he will party on his 21st

I strongly believe that if you are old enough to make life changing decisions..serve your county, get credit, get married, do time or be sued, make major purchases, vote, etc., you should be old enough to purchase alcohol!

The 21 age limit has been in place since the beginning of time, HA HA How and why is for another discussion but it was established eons ago as that is when a person is (key word) supposed to be a responsible adult. \

Georgia lowered the minimum legal drinking age to 18 in 1972. It was one of 24 states (18 states lowered it to age 18 and six lowered it to 19) that reduced the age between 1970 and 1973. The state’s minimum legal drinking age was raised from 18 to 19 in 1980. In 1985, it increased to 20 years old, and became 21 in 1986. Georgia was one of 16 states that increased its minimum legal drinking age from September 1976 to January 1983.

Fans fall from Ga. Tech stadium twice in 2 weeks

"student was leaning over"..seems to make the fall HIS negligence. If stupid people do stupid things that result in their harm, no one other than himself should be held responsible.

Georgia conducting food inspections based on risk

“And the question is, is it better to do a thorough audit and maybe do it once a year than to do these cursory audits just to meet the goal of doing it twice a year?” said Doyle, who added that he prefers a more intense audit.

I'd prefer an intense audit AND regular visits. Hire more inspectors to get the job done.

Lawrenceville woman dies of West Nile virus

I have instructed my family to lie if I die from this. I'd hate for a mosquito to take me out. They are to say something like..she got killed while robbing a bank .. with a flame thrower..and a sickle (took 2 swat teams) Wink

Two Athens men charged in drug-related armed robbery

Police on Tuesday charged Dorsey with making false statements and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, both felonies.

How did they arrive at these charges..did they take the word of the theif that he was selling marijuana?

“From calls that were made on the phone and other evidence, we were able to make a case that Roberts committed the armed robbery and Dorsey lied about what actually happened,” Holeman said.

???..do they have recordings of calls with him stating he was bringing the drugs or something?..doesn't really add up to me.

Trial judge at issue in case of admitted Athens cop killer

I believe if they made a 'top hated people in Athens' list, he would top it..

I, personally would love to have a front row seat to this pompous and despicable low life's death ..hopefully after having gasoline injected into his veins and lit up.

Proposed solar company could stir up Georgia's utility structure

It would probably be about as successful as the go nowhere solar business 'existing' in Lexington Ga. The expense of installing the necessary panels/equipment won't be recuperated for a long period of time.

It's great if the company installs at no cost, or a very comparable rate to getting standard electricity,..otherwise most won't choose it, or spend the $$ to change over. Most will probably be afraid of change..but I do hope to see good things to come from this.

ACLU sues Georgia on behalf of KKK in litter program fight

The Ku Klux Klan is no longer a stable organization..shrinking at the rate of 221 to 152 chapters in just one year. They are just trying to remind people that they exist, in order to compete with the other hate groups on the rise.

    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
