Price gouging reported for Georgia tree removal

Heck if I was to first-hand notice someone needed limb/fell trees picked up I'd give them honest work for honest pay; you just can't trust everyone though. It ticks me off to see some humbug scalawags taking advantage of people..

Huckaby: Just how Southern are you?

I can speak of Stand Waite, "Gray ghost" Mosby, The CSS Shenandoah, The Battle Of Olustee, The H.L. Hunley, can name several ancestors from The Confederate War and a few from the American Revolution, I was born in Lee County Florida so I should probably add points (in all fairness) And Lee and jacksons birthdays just passed.. etc.. Join your local S.C.V. guys.. Nice column I enjoyed reading it 160

United Way Young Philanthropists host round table discussion

United Way is a waste of a charity this comes from my own experiences, friends experiences, and even my greta uncles exeriences from back when. You can give and give and give to them as donations, but however if you need their assistance you'll have a heck of a time I bet you this (even as a charitable donor)... Seems like they have the wrong agenda, thanks..

Four Brothers Sports Tavern coming to Mitchell Bridge

kudos
enjoy But I do wonder just how much a percentage of the sales will the charities get after the overhead (costs to operate the business etc) that is associated with it is handled

PetZone owner gives up license, ends fundraiser for Athens shelter

Sometimes you just have to do the best you can, at somepoint it may not be what you want to do but even a difficult decision that is for the good is usualy best if "nipped in the bud"

Snowden: NSA's indiscriminate spying 'collapsing'

We have a Bill of Rights for a reason and it is pretty dern clear the NSA isn't serving warrants, as well I have no appreciation for "my" gathering on "information" without my consent.

Judge's word on NSA program won't be the last

In Katz v. United States (1967), the United States Supreme Court established its "reasonable expectation of privacy" test. The NSA is a clear violation of that and our own 4th Amendment. imho

As food labels get closer look, ingredients vanish

I hope Palm Oil is one of the first ingredients to go. It is in a little bit of everything and 99% of the time harvested unsustainably removing the rainforests of Indonesia and killing the habitat of many many creatures including the orangutan.

Chick-fil-A working to remove dyes, corn syrup

I haven't ate any fast food in at least the last 6 months so it is easy for me to say that I rarely do.. I pity the people that do seriously.

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - So what's left after you remove the dyes, corn syrup, saline solution, emulsifiers, gelling agents, anti-caking agents, artificial flavorings, extenders/fillers, preservatives, etc.?
[/quote]

possibly something that is healthy? I don't see McDonalds, Hardees, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, etc etc all doing this but it would be a little more wiser to be concerned for the customers safety! Maybe next week week can get the bs additives out of the tobacco etc. (although Native Spirit tobacco is supposedly additive free Wink

Newtown to release 911 calls from school shooting

And the alleged semi-automatic rifle was never even used by the Lanza character. That character used handguns supposedly while in the school and a "Bushmaster" was found in the trunk of the vehicle he drove, and as well it is mighty strange no dead children were shown. And supposedly these were all taken from his parents gun stash so individually locking each gun and using many other safety practices are once again illuminated by that no matter how fiction or non-fiction this is.. In my opinion though this is all phony and spoonfed to the sheeple by the Federal Gov., so eat it up guys and gals their hidden agendas rely on you to!

Georgia man shoots, kills roving Alzheimer's patient

[quote][b]dave parcour[/b] - @grove600: I would never shoot a five year old, under any circumstances. And you don't shoot people unless you absolutely have to.
[/quote]

You can clearly tell a 5 year old child from an adult but even if not why in the heck would a 5 year old be out in such conditions at such a hour etc... without a parent/ guardian? This whole situation is terrible yes but if the fellow was not mentally stable there is no telling what happened none of us commenters were there if I am not mistaken. It is the holiday season and who knows what the shooter may have had to lose should this have been a situation that would have been dangerous. My life means enough to me Sir not to mention the brides property or family being violated...

Tybee Island to reconsider license-plate scanners

[quote][b]more tea sir[/b] - @bredsouthern:
I agree with your position bredsouthern. Please don't misconstrue my comment to believe that I am a proponent of red light cameras. Merely pointing out that Athens is using them under the guise of law enforcement, while Tybee's was far less specific. Simply gathering license plates and tracking persons travel habits.
[/quote]

Yes Sir, I believe either way for either reason is a violation of our rights, although Tybee would clearly be trying to fool all to think that the law wouldn't stick their hands in the "information gathering" I also believe.

Unwarranted and mandatory cavity searches (male and female - young and old) along with all other properties is that next??? I don't mean to offend but think about it, all the darn "progressives"...
I mean son of a gun if they can't already take your blood and test for it's alcohol content, with or without your consent just for instance..The opt out option is more valuable and essential than anything else I prefer to agree or disagree anytime. Sheeple seem to care less, "information garthering" and all other spineless ignorance.. grr!! (again not to offend but wake up!! is it the governments business anything you choose to do as a person with you or your own property harmless){again personal responsibility goes a long way to me.. if I want to drink sweet tea or mushroom tea it should be my choice to get diabetes or potentially hallucinate just for instance}

[quote][b]more tea sir[/b] - @Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass:
I may be mistaken, but the stated purpose is much different. Tybee is proposing them solely for "information gathering". Athens has used them as a civil means of enforcing traffic at red lights. The technology takes a photo of the plate of a car entering an intersection after the light has turned red.
[/quote]

And likely during the yellow light i.e. a tad earlier just to generate the revenue.. Which I believe was recently reported by the ABH

The Tybee city council done a good job at repealing this. Whats next cavity searches for everyone in traffic regardless? Well at least the Orwellian [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orwellian] stopped at that time and there. Our 4th amendment need all the protection it can get!!! Even a road block is a violation of the 4th if you'd ask me.

Flag was thrown on Richt after he told refs they were the SEC's best

I just don't get how it fudged up so much we should have went undefeated thus far in my opinion. Tighten up on special teams, trick plays, no huddle offense and defense, etc, pay attention to detail.. I was impressed several times this year indeed and my God how dissappionted we've been thereafter. Not even going to play the blame game but I am darn sure waiting on next season to roll around between the hedges in G-E-O-R-G-I-A!

    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
