Shark bites man near Southern California beach

Since the shark was just a "juvenile" my guess is he was just given a slap on the fin and is probably back in the water, ready to bite again.

Man loses sister's car, police find it in shambles at fraternity house parking lot

The same thing happened to "Flounder" Dorfman's car in Animal House. The car belonged to Flounder's older brother Fred, who lent it to him. The other Delta frat boys make Kent take them out in it, the car ends up getting smashed up, then for the final parade scene the car is transformed into the 'Deathmobile':

Black preschoolers more likely to face suspension

@ElevatorLady: You seem to be suggesting that the schools should serve as surrogate parents. On the brightside you should applaud the fact that if they are suspended or expelled, they will return to the loving guidance of their own parents.

Black preschoolers more likely to face suspension

"black students of all ages are suspended and expelled at a rate that's three times higher than that of white children"

Yes, it must be prejudice. It couldnt be related to parenting and/or alarming trend of single-parent households.

Oconee County teen in serious condition at Atlanta hospital following crash

That is a bad intersection with an awkward sight and turn angle. Not the first wreck there. Time for a signal with the growth of NOHS traffic.

Regents approve tobacco ban on Georgia campuses

I'm no fan of tobacco but it sems a bit hypocritical given the amount of research dollars UGa willingly accepts from tobacco industry/lobby to teach future tobacco farmers how do grow it better. See http://www.caes.uga.edu/commodities/fieldcrops/tobacco/

Versatyle: Hip hop is the medium, truth is the message

"Athens is not very hip hop friendly ... the reality is, you put a bunch of black people up in the club ... and somebody is going to get shot"

Especially if its Club Platinum.

Oconee County blotter

"a foul odor that smelled like defecation, but the man explained it was his feet"

DeKalb County residents still paying suspended CEO Burrell Ellis

Maybe they could cut his salary to $.01 per month and still be in compliance with the state law to keep paying him.

    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
