John Barrow plans return to Athens after congressional loss

I demand a recount. We don't want him back here, was hoping he would stay in Washington and be a high paid lobbyist.

Guess who's back: Gurley, Marshall return to Sanford Stadium

You know the Dawgs could run a two back set and both Chubb and Gurley could start. If the coaches need some plays go back and look at Cribbs and Brooks.

University of Georgia posts record fall enrollment

Classes started in August and two months later we are reporting this? Some people that we have educating students these days. Surely you could punch a button on a computer and tell how many kids we have in the database a week or two after drop add.

UGA DB Mauger meets official — once again

If the official is too slow to get out of the way just knock him into the runner. He will learn.

Special ed, achievement gap can pose problems for Clarke schools

A great many of the schools’ challenges stem from poverty, Smith said.

“When you have a high poverty rate, there are certain ills that go along with that,” he said.
Translate that into saying we don't need anymore affordable housing. Athens has become the catch all for all of North Georgia's poverty stricken people. The load needs to be shared. We do not need to help people who will not help themselves. Through the years we have gone too far and now it effects all of our young people that don't run to other counties. All of our agencies Habitat, Land Trust and AHA mean well but they are overbuilt almost as much as student apartments and condos.

In ethics probe, Broun says consultant volunteered for campaign work

The report quotes Broun as saying that such conversations occurred “periodically through the whole time he was helping us. ... I’d say, ‘I’ll remind you, this is — you’re volunteering for this.’”

Paul you ignaramous, your Daddy is ashamed of you. Give the money back from your congressional pension then go burn in hell for lying to your constituents and on the way kiss my butt.

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.

    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.
