I wonder what the count is in Athens-Clarke County, especially since one the findings of the 2010 Overview Commission (appointed by the Grand Jury) was that the Sheriff had approx. 4,000 unserved warrants.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 10:57
[quote][b]ElevatorLady[/b] - Wow. That takes an impressive amount of determination and grit.
She is an inspiration.
I agree and it also takes an impressive amount of money. The cost of the test, which is elective thus not covered by insurance, is out of reach for most of us. (At least it was for me a few years back.)posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 10:37
I believe deputies are sent out by the sheriff, not a judge. I honestly forgot to show up for jury duty one time & it was the sheriff who called me at work & said, "Ahem, do you know why your name is on my desk this morning?" Nobody had to send a deputy for me, I couldn't get there fast enough.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 19:06

I would rather the victim's occupation be kept out of the news than the crime location, i.e. I don't care where you work but I care very much if a crime has been committed near me.posted @ Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 08:00

I read that Affleck has added a statement to the credits at the beginning that highlights the Canadian Ambassador's contribution and thanks him. If he wins an Oscar, it will be for his own work as a filmmaker. He doesn't need to be told what to say or who to thank.posted @ Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 08:13
Everyone should know there is an emergency shut-off button under the handrail at the bottom of escalators.
After Crocs shoes became so popular for children there were warnings about their rubbery material being easily caught by escalators & feet mangled because, unlike flip-flops, Crocs have a strap around the heel.posted @ Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 07:53

Childers-Queen was arrested on charges of first-degree arson and first-degree criminal damage to a business.

If this problem had not existed for so many years, all over ACC, no ordinance would have been necessary. Thank goodness homeowners now have some recourse -- I used to knock on my party neighbor's door and get him up every morning at my appointed time of departure for school and work. About the 3rd time when he chewed me out, I smiled and said, "Backatcha, Buddy!"
Reasoning in these situations usually does not work. Anyone who is reasonable cuts out their noise and does not repeat the offense.The majority want to party LOUD and that is all that matters to them. They absolutely do not care if their partying keeps the neighbors' new baby from sleeping, or robs school-age children and parents of all but a couple of hours of sleep. Nobody has a right to do that.posted @ Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 16:06

IF (BIG "IF") the 'oops-I-didn't-know-the-gun-was-in-the-bag' story is true -- which I'm not buying because the gun was partially visible to TSA -- then he should be in bigger trouble for being so irresponsible as to own a gun and not have a clue about its location. How long had it been laying around his house in that bag, accessible to grandchildren, thieves, etc?posted @ Saturday, January 26, 2013 - 08:41

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
