Suspect arrested after Georgia boy killed in his bedroom

Who is capable of something like this? Horrifying and sad. Condolences to the family.

Woman who shot grandson likely won't face charges

Another Responsible Gun Owner™. WTF. Seriously, who is that paranoid? She could reach for a gun, but not for a lamp or a lightswitch? Did she actually think that two 7-year-old boys would be silent and still all night long?

I feel terrible for this little boy. I hope this idiot grandma has learned her lesson and gets rid of her gun, that she no doubt had for "protection."

Gunman robs Athens convenience store

This clerk should not have been expected to close that store alone! There should always be at least two people closing down a store, and the fact that he was made to do this by himself is egregious. I hope he's able to find a better job--one that respects him as a human being!--very soon.

Georgia Aquarium continues effort to import whales

The Georgia Aquarium already has 4 beluga whales. There is no way that tank will house an additional 18 whales! What do they propose to do with that many whales?!

Weight wars: Bake sale showdown set for Thursday

As per usual, the lure of money is more important than the well-being of our children. The fundraiser rule already doesn't apply to evenings, weekends, or off-campus events. This vote is to allow the sale of candy DURING THE SCHOOL DAY, and ON CAMPUS. Is it really so crucial for our children to have candy ALL DAY LONG, while AT SCHOOL? Disgusting!

One Clarke school on state 'alert' list

The poorest children often have the most difficult home lives, or at least situations at home that aren't exactly conducive to learning. Sometimes it's drug or domestic or health problems in the home, sometimes it's single parents who have to work two or three jobs (and so are not home to help the child with homework or even read to them), or sometimes simply a lack of food, which we all know how well we can sleep or concentrate when we're hungry! (Hint: not well!) The single biggest indicator about how well a child will do in school is family income, sad as that is.

Athens boy mauled, cop attacked by pit bull

Absolutely horrifying! I'm glad this officer was able to get rid of this monster before it took another child's face off, or worse! Only sorry that it was able to attack these two beforehand.

Man, 80, says he shot burglar after pregnancy plea

Wow. This is a tough case. They were beating the crap out of an 80-year-old man. But then he shot her in the back. Twice! I'm glad I'm not in a position to decide who is most at fault here. The whole situation sucks.

Athens teen arrested for robbery 2 months after release from prison

Wait, wait, wait. Am I reading that correctly that they dropped the charges in the case in which HE SHOT A MAN IN THE FACE, and only sentenced him for the case in which he punched someone? What the hell message does THAT send?

Oh, well obviously the message is that the more violent crime is treated less seriously, and hence what we have here, where the d-bag is turned loose to commit his next assault. Ridiculous!

One more example of why these shows suck. What a waste of time, energy, and attention.

    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
