Barnett Shoals Elementary construction begins

Judging by todays article about Graduation Rates CCSD has fallen way off. I guess this administration will get back to educating kids after they get out of the construction business. Vote NO on the next ESPLOST. 20 mils the max and this is the max on top of the ESPLOST.

High school graduation rate rises slightly in state, declines in Clarke

Ouch! Superintendent Philip Lanoue
I guess this means you are not going to win Superintendent of the Year for which you are a finalist? Go figure. While figuring that out, you go refigure these rates and ask Clarke County tax payers for a raise.

UGA RB Gurley falsely accused of assault in downtown Athens bar

Racial slur? Todd you should have taken him to the bathroom where there are no cameras, beat the crap out of him, walked out and told them "he slipped on a bar of soap". Jim Brown quote in the Dirty Dozen. GO Dawgs and please you and your teammates stay out of trouble. I like watching you run.

Oconee fire volunteers place second in state fire drill competition

When is Oconee County going to get a full time fire dept? Our tax base should be big enough to pay for basics like fire coverage.

Looking forward to Charleston Southern and La Monroe and some other team out of Louisiana I never heard of. 4 game suspension for Mcgarity he is smoking something, or he is lying to his bosses.

If we throw out all the Students, Professors and Administrators that use marijuana we might not have a college left. This boy has the basics, he should enroll in the Terry College so they can teach him how to make a legal living. He may even teach them a thing or two.

Kingston, Perdue blast each other over ethics, Savannah port

Neither of these candidates, I cannot call them men, deserve your vote. It is a shame this is what politics in the USA has come to. Neither one is qualified to be a dog catcher.

Kingston is best choice for Senate

@RoyBoy: it is the opinion of the owner of the newspaper. These people in Athens like there jobs and write as they are told.
Jack is part of the problem, not the solution. He falls lockstep with the leadership in Washington and that IS the problem, throw them all out.

Senate GOP runoff tied, poll shows

@mpd0.59: That business man has invested 3.15 million of his own money according to reports. That stinks. If he wins he will get his hand out, and be one of them but this year we need to throw all of the incumbents out. Give someone else a chance.

Kingston is a Republican do boy and I don't think Perdue is much better but he is better than Nunn.

Most area elementary, middle schools outperform state averages on CRCTs

We need to compare ourselves to national test scores not one of the lowest statewide scoring states. If you don't set the bar high you will not achieve at the highest level.

    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
