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.

Athens commission votes to replace some downtown parking meters

Instead of a Prince Ave 3 lane demonstration why don't we bag all the meters for a month and see if that increases business in downtown Athens? Novel idea, free parking, no $10 parking tickets unless you pass the 2 hour overparking. Worth a try.

Virginia man facing felony charges for obtaining in-state tuition for daughter to attend UGA

If the guy made full restitution why bother? UGA police should worry about safety of their students.

Georgia, Notre Dame announce home-and-home football matchup

We should talk to Oklahoma also. Stoops thinks we are no good so I believe we should call the question.

The Editor's Desk: 'Vulnerable user' law might help Prince Avenue

I drove down Prince the other day just to see the hundred people an hour walking and biking and I cry BS. First thing I noticed is the sidewalks on Prince Ave are much further away from the street than Milledge or Lumpkin and couldn't be anymore pedestrian friendly. The problem occurs when they put the crosswalks in the middle of the block. The midblock crosswalks should be eliminated and people need to cross at intersections with lights. As for bikers ride on the roads that run parallel to Prince they are much safer. Athens has a bad habit of painting bike lanes on the same asphalt next to automobiles and the auto will win that wreck every time. Our traffic engineer acts like a DA.

Former Jefferson QB Bryant Shirreffs to transfer from NC State

Sounds like Daddy needs to cut the cord and let his son stay and compete. He might just win the job on his own. I wouldn't be scared of any gator that couldn't beat out driskell.

Proposed hotel tax break fails to pass Athens-Clarke development authority

“Not everyone is getting it because not everyone has asked,”

Not everyone needs corporate welfare. If this guy cannot build this without our help maybe he should build a motel 6 on the Atlanta Hwy. not a Hyatt in downtown Athens.

Frankly this is nothing more than an ugly sign on Baxter and breaks the sign ordinance in terms of size. ACC breaking it own laws.

QB Mettenberger: The jury is still out on me

I remember him being at Georgia but don't remember him while in high school. All those other guys you mentioned were household names while in high school. What was his record and stats in High School? Congratulations Zach.

    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
