Left off Madison County and some of the area private schools AGAIN. Madison County shares a border, I can't figure out why the paper leaves them out every time.........

Typo in 3rd paragraph, first sentence. "suing" should be "using." Associated Press needs to work on their proofreading!

My husband asked about this when he stopped in today, the worker said they asked OnlineAthens not to say anything. Good job there. He said they won't know until next week what is going to happen.

@mkultra27: I've seen something like that before in vacation centered cities. You pay and get 2 minutes. If you are there longer you have to pay to leave too!

People are calling for the DJs to be held responsible for the suicide. You can't blame them for something SHE did!
I agree with Fish, this woman would (probably) not have done this on the prank call alone. I feel sorry for the children she left behind, especially if it turns out it was all due to the prank.

@Bklyngal2Athens: It is not a state requirement, most schools don't have them. :/

The food at this place is not good, especially for what they charge for it. My husband and I couldn't wait to get out of there!

Can't wait to see the Gymdogs in action this year!

Saw these when I was in the library meeting room over the weekend. Beautiful!

I gave you a plus to cancel it out Minnie

"Bawk, bawk, bawk" is an example of fowl language. I'm not sure that would get a teacher fined.
Now if you are talking about foul language, then this post makes more sense.

This was actually approved/announced last week, don't know why they waited until now to write about it!

Looking forward to many great years with Dr. McCannon at the helm, he is a great leader and, because he has held so many positions, will make sure everyone is treated fairly!

My sister was in Americus GA a few years back when they had a similar situation with several tornadoes. When visited by higher ups (Can't even remember who now), she said they shut down the ONLY usable road for security.....She was not impressed

Actually the Madison Co. one is not a new tax, it is a continuation of a previously existing tax. If it is not approved then property taxes will go up. I prefer supporting the school system with a small tax than raising property taxes!

@mcudab: I agree! I think the worst is at restaurants when people hang their purses off the back of their chair. Then the person is free to steal their wallet but leave the purse and leave the person unaware until it is too late to do anything.

I do feel sorry for this lady though, she did make an effort to hide it. Sneaky teens were probably watching as soon as she showed up!

Madison Co. not Madison.........two totally different places. Is it that hard to put "Co." in the title?

posted @ Wednesday, January 5, 2011 - 11:00

Bad choice of picture with that title. It would have been a good picture with another article, or even as the smaller picture in this article instead of the main one.

I agree with rcbljc, the teachers have enough to do just coming back from a break, now they can add setting up their classrooms to the meetings, planning, and the like.

    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
