Madison County Commission delays crematory hearing

Let me get this straight. Some folks don't like cremation, so they file baseless complaints. Then those same people suddenly have a change of heart and don't like embalming, either. Hmmm. Well, the complainers just pointed out the whole advantage of cremation...no embalming is necessary. Hate to say it, but the complainers unwittingly contradicted themselves, sunk their own ship, and made the strongest case FOR a crematorium.

Larkins: Madison County High School monument is constitutional

Win or lose, this would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and court costs. That's hundreds of thousands of dollars that would have to be taken away from schools and children.

Is David Larkins volunteering to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees it will cost to defend this nonsense? If so, I say hand him the bill and he can go for it!

Put your money where your mouth is, or please STFU.

Olympian Michael Phelps arrested on DUI charge

Second DUI. Think that comes with a mandatory minimum of 6 months in the slammer. That's not a bong he will be sucking on in the big house.

Athens Christian hires former MLB pitcher Westbrook

A lot of people in his position would probably have rather coached and taught at a legit public school, but are ineligible to do so without a college degree.

Taking their business elsewhere: Best Buy latest to leave Clarke for Oconee

[quote][b]LaMareaRoja[/b] - Who actually BUYS anything at Best Buy?
To me, it only serves as a place to go check out products and try out their features. Then I order what I like online, at a much lower price with free shipping.
[/quote]

Uh...no. I guess you don't actually go to Best Buy or you would know that now they price match online retailers now. I find myself shopping on Amazon or a couple of other online retailers, doing my research on those sites, and then after deciding what to get, I check Best Buy to see if they have they have the item in store store. If they do, I just hop on over and show 'em the Amazon price and they match it. Same price and no shipping and no waiting!

Big smile

The price match policy saved Best Buy.

New Lyndon House supervisor wants to improve center's visibility

Have to say, making an office out of the library is not a good sign. I urge everyone to call and email your commissioners. This is not a done deal. Yet.

Not cool. People scraped and donated money to bail him out. He should have to use the proceeds from the sale to give everyone's money back.

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.

Athens police officer arrested for allegedly assaulting daughter with broom

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.

Athens police officer arrested for allegedly assaulting daughter with broom

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.

    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
