UGA secondary coach Lakatos resigns

[quote][b]johnthebrewer[/b] - Later dude!
It can only get better now.
Maybe, just maybe on 4th and long, with the game on the line players in the secondary will know basic football fundamentals and KNOCK THE BALL DOWN!
Now we all have to watch that Auburn "immaculate deflection" clip for the rest of our lives.
Thanks,
Really glad you're leaving

Thanks to my Noles Smile, when that clip plays, just say "Isn't that the year you gave up 21 in the 4th Q of the National Championship game?"

Florida State athletics' store sells T-shirt with wrong game score

Hey geniuses, it's not a website run by FSU. The website pays FSU (and other schools, including Georgia) for the right to sell products. Anybody with a basic understanding of business would know that. What's that say about the quality of your education?

Georgia state officials warn of holiday DUI danger

I appreciate the message, but the numbers raise questions.

Per the article, 264 Alcohol related fatalities in 2012. At that rate, during the 41 day period outlined above, you would expect about 30 alcohol related deaths but we had 20 during that period last year.

I expected the number to be above the average for the Thanksgiving / Christmas Holidays. So what does that mean? Is the Holiday awareness working? Or are we raising awareness during times that appear to be more dangerous vs. what the statistics actually say? Or is it a misprint?

Drive safe!

Weaver D's owner announces plans to close restaurant

[quote][b]2dollar[/b] -
I respectfully disagree. I've been to some great restaurants that could easily pass for just another house, an old grocery store, etc. There's a very popular, if not slightly overrated, restaurant here in town that is an old house on Milledge. I think WD's problems stem from more than just location.

I think it's more the neighborhood than the house. And agreed, other problems.

GSU awarded $19 million tobacco research grant

I don't get it. I thought the jury was in on tobacco. Another example of why we're broke.

The perceived risks come from earlier governmental studies. But they can't have everybody quit smoking, they would sorely miss all those those taxes to fund these studies.

UGA employee arrested for impersonating an officer

[quote][b]Amanita[/b] -
Not all UGA employees are listed in the directory. You can request that you not be listed there.
[/quote]

Per a source who has a list one cannot opt out of, not a UGA employee. At least not since 2011. Perhaps prior to that.

Savannah woman hit by tree limb awarded $12 million

Sometime in my lifetime, safety moved from personal responsibility to governmental responsibility.

Savannah woman hit by tree limb awarded $12 million

Sadly, in today's litigous age, the cities and towns have a tough choice 1) Cut trees down for safety and face the wrath of organized tree-hugger groups or 2) Take on the financial risk of injury to citizens (mainly because of the cost prohibitive nature of properly maintaining 85,000 trees).

Either way, those trees are beautiful, yet expensive (one way or the other).

'Merica!

Wheels stolen off Athens woman's car

Right out of college, living in a Apt in Orlando, came out to go to work one morning and my car was literally on cinder blocks. Stock Ford Explorer rims. Took the day off of work. Could have been worse.

I saw a car with at least $4-5K in rims and tires last week in McD's drive thru. The side view mirrors were broken and the individual had to open the door to order (windows no worky). But, those tires and rims were tight.

Man tries to rob one Athens convenience store, robs another minutes later

Maybe he should take up another line of work. He's not a very good robber.

Be aware of your surroundings in convenience stores. There a reason folks refer to them as "Stop & Rob"s.

UGA campus bustles as classes begin for fall semester

@observer1948 nailed it. The publisher and author have to recoup their costs and any profit in the first year of any edition. After that, the bookstores are reselling the same book and making a much larger margin that the publisher doesn't see. It's a vicious circle that the students pay for.

Rallies, marches follow Zimmerman verdict

It's hard to trust the media. I don't understand how anyone outside of the courtroom can claim that they know what happened here ( I certainly don't). To the protestors: How about the other (hundreds?) of similar murder trials going on this country right now? You can save the courts' a bunch of time and money if you'll give them the verdict on those too.

    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
