Part of utility pole just hanging by a rope at Alps Rd/West Lake Dr

AFB&T
310 Alps Road
Athens ,GA 30606
706-357-7070

If this pole falls, and someone is killed or injured, will someone sue Athens First Bank? Will someone sue AT&T? Will Athens Clarke County be partially at fault? Will we all be at fault for not doing anything? For being unconcerned? Who owns the property that the pole is hanging from?

Why didn't one of the Densons address this?

Oh well...everything is fine. Let's all just text and drive and engage in ad hom attacks on those that say or write something that we don't like.

Food stamps (bread) and distracting entertainment (circuses) are cheap.

Come on editors and writers at The Athens Banner! Can't y'all do a piece on the dangerous utility poles in Athens?

Does anyone besides theold33 care?

[quote][b]theold33[/b] - Went by there today and the broken pole is still hanging. It's really amazing nobody has reported it or that it hasn't been fixed.

Howdy. Thank you for posting. Yes, I'm so disappointed that no one other than you seems to care. So I'm just going to watch and see. I'm very curious. If nothing else, it seemed like an easy story for a reporter to write.

How about some articles from the Athens Banner like "How To Adapt To High Gasoline Prices"?

Or at least some posts about ideas?

Diesel?

Propane?

Manual transmission?

Will low prices ever return? What do y'all think?

I think that there are a global elite that like playing us all off against each other and that their goal is global enslavement.

The Politics of Common Core

2+2=What? Parents rail against Common Core math

"Common Core was written by businessmen trying to make money off of you. You and your learning are a grand experiment in corporate profits. If you fail at school, if your teachers fail to teach you, these corporations can sell more books, workbooks, tests, software and technology to schools and even to your parents to try at home. None of it will work. These same businessmen want to convince states to let them and their companies take over your schools. Your parent’s tax dollars would then go to these companies. Over $600 billion is spent on education every year in this country. This money should go to your education, not to private companies. It is very similar to what was done to prisons several years ago."--Mrs. Meg Norris, Ed.S.

To My Students: ‘I Love You and Believe in You’
http://atthechalkface.com/2013/11/02/to-my-students-i-love-you-and-belie...

"Common Core is the first time in the history of this country that a privately written and copyrighted plan has become public policy. There is no research to back it and it has never been tested. Politicians are pushing it because these corporations are giving them money to push it."--Mrs. Meg Norris, Ed.S.
7th Grade (former) teacher
Georgia

Meg Norris is a doctoral candidate in education and a certified teacher in Georgia. After 18 months with Common Core in her classroom her observations compelled her to walk away from her dream job of teaching to fight against the implementation of Common Core and high stakes testing. She was banned from her former school because of her stance against Common Core.

"Comedian Louis C.K. made headlines recently with his Tweets about Common Core. He brought the conversation into the mainstream arena after stating that his daughters used to like math, but Common Core curriculum made them cry. It's not the first instance of a child crying during homework, as you might imagine."--Heather Callaghan

Georgia jobless rate remains unchanged at 7 percent

"Don’t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud."

"In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government."--Paul Bedard

    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
