Jefferson man, teen girl arrested in Jackson County meth probe

How did I already know, before clicking the link, that the dude would be twice the age of the girl? Such a loser.

Scary! I hope they succeed in keeping him away from her.

Students rally for teacher who talks about faith

So lemme get this straight. He's telling people it "ain't" about him judging, but in the next breath he accuses people of not taking care of their kids? I smell BS.

Texas mom found not guilty in strangling of 2 kids

How horrible for those children. I hope this woman gets the help she needs and won't remain a menace. Sad all around.

Janay Rice breaks her silence, describes situation as ‘horrible nightmare’

I feel really bad for this woman, as well as their two-year-old daughter. As if he weren't already abusive enough, add the frustration and humiliation of being broke, unemployed, and publicly shamed to the mix. This doesn't bode well for how he will treat them in the future.

Girl said Uzi was too much for her

So lemme get this straight. 9 years is too young to be left at a playground while her mom goes to work, but not too young to be handed an UZI? Ahhh, okay. Gotchya.

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!

    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
