@OCCountry: how many people in OC homeless population?posted @ Friday, February 14, 2014 - 12:27
Got extra wood, extra tank for the grill, always have stocked pantry and deep freezers. Problem is I also have generators and think my neighbors will evacuate to my house if we start losing power.

If Sposato flagged down a ACC police officer, then has this Brunswick boy been in Athens for the last 9 days?

@Chris White: Chris, could you possibly give some historical background on "profit" ABH made 1) before the newspaper went online. 2) before the newspaper built their large building.
What percentage of profit was made through the ads which were printed in our daily paper VERSUS the percentage of profit from individuals who paid for a subscription to the paper.
I think it will take corporate advertising not individual subscriptions to pay off the debt of the Taj Mahal built on Thomas St.posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 - 14:55
I say that after the mass exodus from onlineathens.com, we all meet up at Peppino's for a few slices and a meet-n-greet! Wouldn't that be interesting!
I'm game. Name the date and time to be at Peppino's.posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 - 13:53

@jasonterryy: want to tell us why his license was suspended? Does he think he is privileged because he played football and he doesn't have to abide by state laws?posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 - 13:01
Why doesn't the Athens Jail website have his photo posted? Neither do they have an address listed...which is unusual.

Something is off with this story.
Two white men wearing dark stocking hats this past Sunday when it was almost 60 degrees in Athens. I don't think so.
Also, who interviews for jobs on a Sunday. How did the two men get to Gainesville in the first place?
This story isn't adding up.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 21:18

Why spend an undue amount of legislative time on the guy/gal who has a legal permit to carry? Why not spend the legislative time on creating new laws to truly punishment the thugs who have illegal guns?posted @ Sunday, January 12, 2014 - 23:43
no explanation needed..the 6/22/13 those cases where dismissed minus the dui @CharlotteLadyGardner @FairFacts
the facts are this:: I have a limited driving permit from the state of GA,stemming from the dui charge. So technically I wasn't in the wrong. Why was I arrested? oohh,ok I'll wait for those answers!!
Dismissed...I don't think so!
Endangering the life of a child-DUI....Nolle
Open Container Violation....Guilty plea
Simple batter against police...Nolle
Disorderly conduct....Guilty plea
Not a wise idea to get arrested while on probation!posted @ Sunday, January 12, 2014 - 18:14
Looks like Miss Lashawnda didn't learn from her 6/22/13 arrest. She was charged with DUI, Endangering the life of a child-DUI, open container violation, simple battery against police officer/LE Dog/Corre, and Disorderly Conduct.
With 2 violent episodes less than 7 months apart, one would question her ability to control her temper.posted @ Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 19:28
I was kicking the door,if I kicked the windows they definitely should've broken!! Cause I was kicking hard as hell,and that wasn't a good decision..hindsight is 20/20 @CharlotteLadyGardner

#1 I have a driving permit so I was within legal rights to be driving. #2 hell yea I called the police because I was attacked((they left that part of the reason for the call out..and didn't charge him with assault)).Did I know they would arrest ME?? Hell no..Funny how they make everything seem soooo right from their side,and sooo wrong from the arrestees side..believe half of what you read because its more fiction than facts!!

Who in their right mind would call 911 when: 1. Driving on a suspended license, 2. With an open container of alcohol in said car, 3. With marijuana in car, 4. With Xanax in illegal container?

ABH....Why wasn't the time included in the write-up? Did this happen 2AM Wednesday or 10AM Wednesday? Both are considered "morning" but there is a hell of a difference. Was it daylight or night? Will you please clarify for your readers.posted @ Friday, January 10, 2014 - 13:38

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.

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
