Fake power bill fools Athens businessman

The man must not read the ABH for all the articles that have been posted in the last several month about scams.

Georgia city to dissolve its police department

This article missed all the stuff between a city council member and some of the locals. Check the Augusta Chronicle site for a video if still available.

Yup, the locals are fully armed. It used to be an everyday sight, probably still is, to see almost every pick-up truck riding through town with a rifle hanging in their back window. You could leave your truck unlocked and "nobody" bothered your rifle.

SEC Network's presence is everywhere, even if station's providers are not

So basicly, this is a way for the SEC to make $$$ through ESPN ?

So the 45 exclusive football games to air won't be on ESPN ? Which games are they ?

Trying to get me go back to Dish - Not, saving too much $$$.

Athens man accused of domestic assault

I reckon we won't be seeing him in the "thugs & mugs" section, otherwise known as the baby mama / baby daddy / "we're not a gang member" photos. One lady at work was so proud when her live-in boyfriend made the photos for parole violation, she was telling everyone, seriously.

Union pulls black college support after Koch gift

@snarkydude: If you haven't gotten a raise in 7 years, does that mean you didn't deserve one ? From your own comments !!

BTW, I've gotten a raise and a bonus the last 4 years without asking, because I bust my tail at work. And yes there are good companies out there.

"Try" finding a new job. Things have improved enough that good jobs are out there. Try near Duluth, place that makes contact lenses - maint. personal make $25-30 / hour.

Union pulls black college support after Koch gift

@TeeWee: Which Koch company was it and was he working for a contract driving company ? Most truck drivers are contracted for Koch. Not disputing that he got a raise.

What I stated was FACT !

When they bought out the Invista (formerly DuPont) Fibers division which includes the local Athens plant and Georgia Pacific, cuts were made at that time and most wage roll employees were not given raises between 3-5 years. I have family and friends at both places, not a passing conversation with someone.

Also, the local Invista Athens plant is in the process of moving 1/2 of it's operations to Mexico which has a slight delay, because the Mexican plant can't get it up to speed/quality as the Athens plant.

Koch Brothers don't give raises and cut staffing when buying out companies, also.

Bicycling farm tour scheduled for Watkinsville

Reading the title, I had hopes that it was nowhere near Winterville, omg.

2 outa of 3 places around Winterville - last one in Oglethorpe county, OMG....that event will bottleneck that road bad. Shock

In all seriousness, if they are riding from Winterville to Sweet Olive Farm on bikes, there is a sharp curve before getting to it. Be safe....

Pet owners perplexed by missing dogs in Carlton

@kaleigh1974: Oh, I did read the article and that was part of my conclusion in first post that upset someone. It wasn't like someone actually broke into their houses to get the dogs.

"and after the call another man approached him saying he knew the owner and would return her- He did not, has not and clearly did not intend to!"

So after all that, have Home Again try to locate the dog, again ! And I wasn't assuming people do not take care of their animals - it was apparent from the article that the owners love their dogs.

It could be like OCCountry said: Coyotes considers small dogs as an easy snack.

Another thought as to not to try & upset anyone is: were these dogs "yippers" that barked a lot and a fed-up neighbor saw a chance to no longer have to hear them ?

    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
