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.

Athens man assaults girlfriend

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.

Think UGA is tough? Try Athens Tech, student says

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

The King Center weighs in on South Dakota honor song dispute

Maybe The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta and family members need to stick to suing each other. They've disgraced their father's name.

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.

Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records showcase highlights new Tunabunny release

Well, Youtube to the rescue albeit: older songs, kinda........

Watched some vids of Tunabunny's and still trying to decide how good they are based on I couldn't hear vocals as the music drowned out their singing. But then, some bands do that when the vocals are sub-par, not saying this is the case, but I usually DON"T ENJOY A BAND WHEN VOCALS AREN"T UNDERSTANDABLE !

And I don't buy music /songs as such.

Just my humble opinion..........whatever..............

No links to bands / music / songs ? Samplers ?

Remember in the olde days when ABH used to host local bands / songs on a section of their website or am I missing a link somewhere ? No song samplers on the Green Room site.

Former band director and UGA Red Coat investigated for possible multiple sexual assaults of children

Sounds like their drawing at straws to make a UGA connection, with nothing actually happening at UGA ( no known incidents at this time). Title seems slightly misleading as first thought after reading it that he was a band director @ UGA which he wasn't.

"Authorities said some of Clark’s former students now attend UGA, and possibly with his help or encouragement followed his path and joined the school’s marching band."

    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
