If an employee of my child's school is arrested, especially for something like that, I would like to know. Parents have a right to know if the people entrusted with their children are law-abiding citizens or not. I don't want my children near criminals while they are supposed to be getting educated.posted @ Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - 01:24
@kayron4: Probation, of course. This is Clarke County, after all.posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 20:18

all of the above.
Hope it doesn't take the same inland path as TS Lee 2 years ago. Some places are just now recovering from the flooding.posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 18:14
Thats funny cause with all the traffic on 285, you can rarely go over 40.posted @ Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 22:53
Was it repossessed?
Inntown Suites is such a classy place :/
They are in Judge Todd Hoover's courtroom. He is ruthless and doesn't mess around, one of the toughest judges in Harrisburg.posted @ Tuesday, July 30, 2013 - 02:29

Releasing her to the mother must have been so effective last time that we can try that again and hope for the best. Really????posted @ Thursday, July 18, 2013 - 00:57

Looks like someone listened too well to the Chick-fil-A cow.
Someone planned to "eat mor chikn".

Too many pedestrians getting hit. People need to learn how to drive! There is no way they didn't notice they hit a person.posted @ Tuesday, July 9, 2013 - 19:01
If Athens' Piggly Wiggly closes, what will the Bacon Bandit do for her probation?posted @ Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 12:11
Remember the year we went 6-7-11.
Its gonna be one of those years. The incoming freshman football players are a bunch of thugs - saw them at Waffle House trying to impress a bunch of girls. They can't handle their alcohol (but neither could the girls) and they have no manners.
Parolees need to have jobs lined up before they get out to help avoid this. And better supervision and drug testing.posted @ Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 14:03
@avenger: Three Mile Island was our homegrown meltdown. They have completely revamped safety procedures after that. In fact, they just ran a practice warning drill there (Harrisburg,PA) last week. The school districts also have drills and parents have to sign a form saying their kids can be treated with iodine after a radioactive emergency.
I do agree with you that there should be an automatic shutdown system in place for this kind of stuff. They also should remove potential tree hazards themselves like Georgia Power does to trees close to power lines in winter.
Well, since they just gave up on Jimmy Hoffa again, can we now resume our search for Jimmy Buffet's lost shaker of salt.posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 18:40
They do NOT get special prisons. An ex-cop in prison has the option of requesting solitary confinement for their safety (going to the hole) but most won't take that option. They just need to keep their head low and their mouth shut. However... it is pretty obvious to career criminals in prison who used to be a cop or military.posted @ Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 23:20
This is why kids know they can get away with anything here.posted @ Friday, June 14, 2013 - 00:50
Do these fools even realize this trend started as an invite for some "manly lovin'" in prison????posted @ Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 01:19
Thank you, ABH, for actually having an article about hockey.
This is going to be a great series and its cool to see 2 of the "Original 6" in the Stanley Cup. Since my beloved Flyers didn't make the playoffs, I would like to see the Bruins win for the people of Boston. They will have great music at their home games too.
So glad Boston beat the Pens. They are out just like Sidney Crosby's teeth!
What hotel doesn't require a credit card at checkin? If they don't have a credit card, why didn't he pre-pay? Never heard of Candlewood Suites - sounds sketchy.posted @ Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 22:41
@Bellehowell: Just because someone works at Waffle House, it does NOT mean they are on drugs. Some people choose to work there for the schedule and many other reasons. There is currently a WH waitress with a PhD and another one with a 4.0 GPA in nursing. Others work there because the schedule allows a 2nd income for their family. If you really know anything about this you need to reveal your "sources" to Oconee County, not an anonymous comment section. If you are just making assumptions, you need to get some manners, quit making assumptions, and respect Misty and her family in this tragedy.
Prayers for Misty's family, friends, and co-workers.
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.

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
