Cyclist, motorist have words in Winterville

Lost count of how many cyclists run the stop signs around the Winterville area, have seen 20 at one time. Generally, it's the groups that ride Sat & Sunday.

Asking that the police chief crack down on them, they should get fined just like a car driver.

Fox executive fired over Flight 370 charity email

Darlene Tipton, who was vice president of standards and practices for the Fox Cable Networks Group - she should have known better than to use the company's email and was she planning the financial aid on company time. Big no-no's !!

A condition of accepting the money she hopes to raise: Recipients must waive the right to seek legal remedy. "If they're getting money through contributions," she said, "it isn't right for them to seek money through legal channels, too."

Sorry, I wouldn't accept any $$$ under her conditions.

Snowden no hero, national security leader says at UGA

NSA/CIA never does like whistleblowers for them violating our constitutional guarantees of privacy.

However, Clapper acknowledged a need for more “transparency” about what federal security agencies No kidding !!!

And...More recently, some U.S. Senators have accused the CIA of snooping in lawmakers’ computers.

Obama: NSA Must Reveal Bugs Like Heartbleed, Unless They Help the NSA After years of studied silence on the government’s secret and controversial use of security vulnerabilities, the White House has finally acknowledged that the NSA and other agencies exploit some of the software holes they uncover, rather than disclose them to vendors to be fixed.

OMG, she invaded his home, his privacy, didn't want to join the fun then accidentally tripped & fell into the wall. Seriously, the girl should be finding a new boyfriend and he must not be a felon for possession of a gun.

Family's sailing trip with baby spurs debate

Others say children benefit in numerous, intangible ways from parents who show them the world, even at an age in which they may not remember the travels - children are 1 and 3 years old.

Really, how ?

Not knocking them for the sailing trip and what happened, but the statement in story.

Archbishop to sell Atlanta mansion

Rather arrogant of this archbishop and a lot others living a high life on parishioners money. Mitchell asked in his will that the proceeds be used for "general religious and charitable purposes" - how that turned into building as $2.2 million mansions shows the greed.

Then you have all these prosperity preachers - all about the $$$$. If your preacher has more bling than a rap star, then something is wrong.

Athens Tech grading is probably tougher because they don't have a football program to get students through.

Drunk man damages SUV parked at home of Athens ex

The incident location was blacked out of a police incident report because the former girlfriend was listed as an employee of the Clarke County School District.

Still don't understand ABH's policy on this or if it's a UGA employee.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    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
