Ponsoldt: Mayor slowing progress in Athens

Does Ponsoldt live anywhere near Prince Ave? I don't think he does therefore doesn't have a dog in this fight.

Georgia health exchange applications hit 220,000

@Duke Briscoe: My insurance was with BSBS of Georgia had a lower deductible, more first dollar coverage, had a lower stop loss, and if I ever did hit the max would probably be dead or wish I was. I for one, very much understand health insurance, trust me what I have is not as good as what I had. It was "grandfathered" but it was only for one year until my next anniversary which is August. Then the plan expired, meaning I would have to pay two deductibles by year end. Tell your president to kiss my ass and stay out of my life.

Georgia health exchange applications hit 220,000

I had to buy health insurance in the exchange and I didn't feel like it saved my life. I felt forced to buy expensive insurance to replace what I already had. While I don't necessarily disagree with people should have insurance I wish we treated everyone equal. How about all the state and federal employees be required to buy their own individual plan?

Poll shows Perdue, Deal still leading

It seems to me that the ones who spend the most to get elected forget that they are supposed to quit spending when they get elected. This is how we get trillions in debt by electing the dumb ones that happen to spend the most because they all have that brown spot on their noses.

Didn't know Turner Field was such a bad place. Has there ever been a shooting inside the stadium?

Gov. Deal to skip televised debate

Well I just think that is chicken do-do. It is unfortunate that I can't vote for Carter just because I can't vote for Jimmy Carter's kinfolk.Although I would have voted for Billy at least he was real. Deal is sleezey but so are all the rest. It is sad these are the sleezbags we have to vote for.

Mayor says Prince Avenue study has become 'political football'

My momma taught me that you cross at the traffic light. The problem with Prince is the mid block crossings for the lazy ass liberals that park their cars as close to the business they are visiting, instead of of walking and biking like they tell rest of us to do. Do away with the mid block crossings that cause most all the problems.

Democrat Nunn to report $2.4M in Georgia Sen. race

If your name is Nunn, Perdue, Carter or Broun, I can't vote for you. Just because your family is in politics doesn't mean you should be. I thought all the Kennedy's and Bush's sucked at it.

Clarke schools launch Whitehead construction project

Where is all this money coming from? Please tell me that with ESPOST that the Board of Education is not floating a bond, paying interest when these type projects should be pay as you go, that way students and taxpayers get more bang for their bucks. How much is the interest?

Displaced Athens public housing residents to get voting registration reminder

“We don’t get involved in politics,” he said.

Say what? Heck you just did. I agree with Jaki if you don't know where you live and where you are supposed to vote, maybe you shouldn't.

UGA swim coach Bauerle suspended from coaching duties as NCAA levies allegations

Coach, "he gone". Professor, instructor, teacher. "he gone". The question is, what to do with academic advisor that obviously blew the whistle? Especially when it made no difference. Sounds like Glada was set on ruining two careers. Good luck working within the department in the future.

Bulldogs taking special (teams) care

Woo wee finally the reverend realizes the punter has to catch the ball. We would have won 2 more games last year! Pay the players not the dumb coaches.

UGA baseball player Sims suspended indefinitely after DUI arrest

I remember when you had to blow .12 to be considered drunk. This nut was doubly drunk way back then. Guess now he can go to Auburn.

Georgia homeowners face flood insurance premium hikes

I have an idea, don't build in a flood zone. Ralph Hudgens staunch Republican now is looking for FEMA (the government) to bail people out. Sounds a lot like obamacare to me. I look forward to the day Americans become less reliant on the government.

Saint Joseph's beats Georgia women 67-57 in NCAA first round

It is time for Andy to retire. He is not getting it done and if he coached on the men's side, football, basketball or baseball he would have been fired a long time ago. Time to give someone else a shot. If he doesn't want the to take the dignified route he should be fired.

UGA's Bauerle won't be at NCAA championships

Speculating on this is like speculating on the missing plane in Malaysia. Some day the truth will come out. I just hope Jack is able to keep his job. Obviously this is a really big deal.

    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
