@athenstransplant: I have family who was very close with this child, and yes he has passed. The family has posted on Chandler's facebook page that he passed this weekend. So sad for all parties involved, it was truly an accident that couldn't have been avoided from what I'm understanding from my family. Prayers going out for Chandler's family and friends. He was apparently a very well liked, loving young man.posted @ Monday, April 29, 2013 - 23:23

I would feel just fine having my child, male or female left in the care of a gay or lesbian person. I know this because I have taken the time to get to know more than a few of each. I know that they are some of the most fun loving, carefree, and caring people that you will ever meet. Of course they, like any one of us, have issues in their life. I'd be willing to bet with anyone that if all of you who are saying how "icky" and wrong being gay is, got off your high horses and got to know a LGBT person that you would love them too and see that your ASSUMPTIONS about them and their lifestyle were completely wrong. You all know what assuming things does right... IT MAKES YOU AN ASS...posted @ Friday, March 8, 2013 - 02:38
I dont think this is correct. I have participated in more than one resuscitation on visitors within ARMC and we handled everything internally. Now, if they collapse just outside the ER on the public sidewalk, then an ambulance gets called. We would render aid until the ambulance arrives but would allow them to transport to the ER.
It's always interesting when people think they know what they're talking about and they really don't, isn't it?? Aimed at the person you replied to, not to you!posted @ Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 20:53
@mpd0.59: Thanks! Oath or no oath, I'm not sure I could stand by and watch someone die as this woman did.posted @ Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 20:50

[quote][b]grove600[/b] - If you're visiting someone on the 5th floor of ARMC and have a heart attack, they too will call 911 to transport you to their ER for care. Protocol. It might suck, but it was most likely born from a lawsuit. [/quote]
Are you an ARMC employee? If not, I'm sure that you probably shouldn't use them as an example related to a story like this. I'm also sure that they have policies in place that are far more efficient than call 911 IN THE MIDDLE OF A TOP RANKING MEDICAL FACILITY and wait for EMS to arrive. I'm also pretty sure that a hospital employee is not going to stand by and watch someone die.
I'm not a nurse or a doctor, but don't you take an oath that kinda says you have to help people in need...apparently that nurse in that ALF needs to go back and check the one she took as well as her humanity and her conscience. She lacks the latter two apparently.posted @ Monday, March 4, 2013 - 20:59
Yeah, I anxiously await the next edition of "Dear Gabby" and the "I, Me, My" miniseries...
I just clicked over to read another story, and y'all are right! LOL! Her comment was all "I did this" and "I would never"... Now I'm gonna be looking for it... Thanks guys! LOL!posted @ Monday, March 4, 2013 - 20:45
It amazes me how women like this who can't take care of/dont want the children that they have keep having them, and then a poor defenseless infant/child ends up dead. Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed...posted @ Monday, March 4, 2013 - 20:39
[quote][b]CharlotteLadyGardner[/b] - The police do their job by arresting him. Does our DA do his job by prosecuting the crime for what it really is? [/quote]
Of course he won't...why would he change his current way of doing things. Maybe he sees the probation fees making more money for the county than keeping them in jail. Who cares about the citizens that these punks are terrorizing. And they'll keep terrorizing because they aren't being taught a lesson. It really makes absolutely no sense. I'm just wondering what it's going to take for him to open his eyes and see that his current punishment methods aren't working, and that maybe he should try something else. Maybe build a bigger jail and start keeping people in it.posted @ Monday, March 4, 2013 - 20:34
[quote][b]SIGNOFF[/b] - She needs to have a gun, like yesterday.
I don't know why you got all the neg's. I'd give you +10 if I could! I guarantee if she had a gun she would save herself and ACC tax payers a lot of headache... But of course, that probation he will no doubt get, added to the probation that he is no doubt already on, will surely teach that POS a lesson...posted @ Monday, March 4, 2013 - 20:29

did I just miss the story or has there still been no arrest in the case of the hit-and-run driver from last week?

Why would you leave four children in a home alone? I don't care how close the place you have to go is, putting those kids in the car or making them walk with you is always better than taking the chance that something like this might happen. If you can't handle the hassle or inconvenience of having to deal with taking them with you everywhere you go then you should have considered that before you kept having them.posted @ Monday, February 25, 2013 - 20:42
If he'd have done this in Clarke County he would have been out by age 18 with probation... true story.posted @ Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 01:28
[quote][b]ntjoking[/b] - damn what does it take for the judges to see he aint going to ever change, put him away
He's probably going to have to kill someone. Endangering people while he's comitting his crimes is obviously not enough to keep him behind bars. And when he does kill or cause serious injury to someone the judge who let him out should be charged with aiding and abetting, and accesory...because that's exactly what they are doing by letting people like this stay free.posted @ Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 23:30
Get well soon little man! Daily prayers for you recovery and for strength for your family. Hopefully this will be the last surgery and all will be able to return to as normal a life as possible. God knows this family deserves it. It's touching how many people follow his progress daily, and have come together to help this family. If only people could come together like this for more things than just tragedies. This world would be a much better place.posted @ Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 03:22

[quote][b]mateo[/b] - Thank God no one in the pictures has on an UGA hat or shirt!
I bet all those UGA football players had on UGA attire while driving drunk, possesing weapons, doing drugs and beating up women... But I'm sure that was ok because they aren't "rednecks". They're ignorant jerks who get idolized, while these two may not make the best music but they are out doing good. And Colt's music is pretty good, maybe you all should take a listen before you judge him. You just might enjoy it.posted @ Friday, December 21, 2012 - 20:41
How about you all just be proud that someone from this crime infested county is out doing something productive and shedding a more positive light, rather than the one that normally gets shed on things that go on here. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean nobody does. Just because it's "not your thing" doesn't mean A LOT of people don't enjoy their music. How about y'all be supportive of someone from Athens who is doing good for a change!posted @ Friday, December 21, 2012 - 20:35

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
