Teachers, state workers upset about health plan changes

- "The HMO plan was popular, with two of every five people covered by the State Health Benefit Plan enrolled in the HMO." -

When a minority of people choose something, that does not make it popular.

Man accidentally fires gun in Athens restaurant

Only cowards and idiots carry guns, especially to a restaurant. Some, like this boy, are both. He needs to man up and grow a pair.

Athens police officer arrested for allegedly assaulting daughter with broom

[quote][b]zallybonk[/b] - Motes said she dragged her daughter by the hair. For a law enforcement officer to admit to abuse and dragging a child by the hair is disturbing to say the least. The irony is, judging by her photo, her hair looks like someone dragged it. Is that a wig the perp is wearing in her mugshot? Or just 2 tone hair color? Maybe they have hair colorists in lady prison?
This just seems so t-r-a-s-h-y!
[/quote]

Pretty sure the inmates in female prisons do not have access to hair colorists. Not licensed ones anyway.

Athens police officer arrested for allegedly assaulting daughter with broom

Two things I have zero tolerance for are men who abuse women and anyone who abuses children. Ms. Motes needs to spend some time in prison and think about her crimes. No telling how much worse this will get if she continues to get away with violence against children. Don't empower her. Nip it. Nip it in the bud.

An officer who beats a child to the point of injury, and lies about it to law enforcement on the scene is, by definition, not a "good" officer.

I also think the her lying to the deputies on the scene is just as bad as her beating on her kid. Isn't that a felony? Lying to law enforcement when being questioned? Should be. Either way, her butt should be fired yesterday.

Police, GBI investigation closes The Plaza in west Athens

Looks like ACCPD found a way to solve their multi-decade problem of being unable to solve crimes. Just declare no sign of foul play and tell everyone to move along. Got to go write some more traffic citations.

Wrecked building a total loss at Arnoldsville crash scene

[quote][b]snarkydude[/b] - Fifty grand is WAY out of line.
[/quote]

Not really, considering punitive damages are certainly called for here as the driver not only destroyed the building, but then fled the scene. Someone could have been in the building and been killed, or seriously injured and in need of immediate medical assistance. This piece of trash didn't even stop to see. Taking that into consideration, the trucking company is LUCKY no one was hurt and should be more than happy to pay up.

Give 'em $1 for the building, and $50,000 punitive. Or, send it to a jury. I and my neighbors would gladly award at least $100,000 considering the irresponsible actions of the truck driver.

Wrecked building a total loss at Arnoldsville crash scene

Mr. Webb is a hero. And all he will have to do is show up for court, MAYBE ask for a jury, and his charges will be thrown out. Guarantee any jury will do that.

What is bizarre is that the trucker is not charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident. He admits he destroyed the building. He admit leaving. Call the owner? What's that got to do with anything? The truck driver is legally bound to remain at the scene of the accident until the police arrive.

The real questions here are Why did the trucker leave? Obviously he was trying to elude. Why didn't the trucker call 911 and wait on the police?

Biggest question: Why wasn't the trucker CHARGED?

Big thank you to Mr. Webb for doing the right thing and making sure this criminal did not get away. Props also for SAFELY forcing him to stop.

Athens drug trafficker sentenced to 20 years in prison without parole

[quote][b]Save our Republic[/b] -
Quite different actually. The psychoactive attributes of coffee are simple stimulants.
Marijuana's psychoactive profile is much darker.
Not only does it affect neurotransmission of signals in the nervous system, but it impairs memory and attention, as well as causing hallucination
[/quote]

You sir, are an idiot. Marijuana does not remotely cause "hallucination." lol. Whatever that is you're smoking, it's not marijuana.

Alcohol is legal and is 1,000x more harmful than marijuana, as it truly does impair. And destroys the liver. And if alcohol is legal, then yes, a truly harmless plant like marijuana should be legal.

But, no matter. Legal or illegal, it is extremely easy to obtain, so go on wasting your billions in tax dollars locking up those who partake of marijuana. Has no impact on anything. Although it does keep the profit margins really, really high for the free market capitalists who sell the stuff. And that money for those folks is 100% tax free.

You're not locking up criminals. You're making free market capitalists very, very wealthy while paying out your azss to eliminate their competition.

Athens drug trafficker sentenced to 20 years in prison without parole

QUOTE: "I hope his conviction will have a significant impact on the availability of marijuana."

That statement gets Most Ignorant Statement of the Year Award.

Uh. No. It will have absolutely no impact whatsoever. Marijuana is Georgia's #1 cash crop, dwarfing soybeans, peanuts, peaches and even forestry. Marijuana is available anywhere, anytime. Especially this year. Check the weather lately?

Morons.

'Spiritual awakening' prompts Danielsville man to disrupt church service

The man's conduct was far, far less disturbing than the conduct of those whom the people in that very church follow as reported in the bible.

Strange, the church worships one group of delusional individuals who exhibit bizarre behavior, yet, when they encounter one in the flesh, they boot him out of the church. Guess jesus wouldn't last long if he paid a visit to that church!

Guess that's christian love and hypocrisy for ya.

Man charged with pointing gun at Madison County deputy

Sounds like they need to take a LONG HARD look at the person who sent the deputy over there. The guy seems a little unstable, but he was not breaking any law. Wouldn't be surprised if the "concerned" citizen who called the law to do a "welfare check" was actually someone with a beef with the guy and had possible egged the guy on and tipped him with some story that the cops would be coming by to cause him harm.

Might not be the case, but this sounds VERY suspicious.

Clarke school chief must reconsider decision to allow controversial book

[quote][b]SarahFlo[/b] - Ignorant hillbilly hick Georgia STILL BANNING BOOKS!
Athens "Board of Education?" Hardly! More like Athens BOARD OF IGNORANCE. The Athens Board of Ignorance is showing why Athens school system is the laughingstock of the region.
Banning books? Athens? SERIOUSLY?
[/quote]

Agree. Having some inkling of what education is about should be a prerequisite for serving on the board of education. Those narrow-minded idiots who would ban books should not be allowed to serve on boards of education just as we would not tolerate klansmen or Nazi's serving on our boards of education. When the board members reveal themselves to be a real threat to education, as these 5 have by revealing themselves to be book banners, they should be removed from their positions. Clearly they are not qualified to clean the toilets in the schools, much less make decisions affecting the education of our youth.

Recalls, anyone?

    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
