It's too late. The damage is done. This place, if it survives, will never be the same.

I'd like to think that they (ABH management) are kicking themselves for the results of their decision, but I suspect the reality is they're high-fiving themselves over the new direction of the web-news-comments.

Not yet. It's just that there's nothing all that worthy of my time. Y'al are exceptions of course, but what was that that I heard earlier? 55 posts?

Can you imagine the permit process? Environmental impact studies, the blessings of the historical society, the townie buy-in, and one honking retention pond for the rainwater runoff. Naaaaa, lets just take it out of town.

It was fun while it lasted. See y'all on the flipside.

Does Dave know best?

Parents can raise their kids any way they want to, and I have no say in that,

As long as they don't ask or demand that I pay for their kids education, clothing, food, shelter, medical bills, life-long unemployment, or prison sentences.

Jury finds Athens man not guilty of elderly homeowner's murder; victim's family outraged

I feel for this family, but what should they expect? It is Clarke County, where criminals go free and law abiding citizens are punished.

Athens police searching for 'Carrot Top' suspect in westside burglary

They need some better reporting, at least let people know when they MOVE Beaverdam road from the east side of town all the way over to the west side of town. That is clearly more important news than school lunches and booking photos.

Double super duty probation? What's that? Meet the PO twice a week?

Athens police looking for man who pointed gun at children

What are thee odds that he's got a carry permit. Or that he acquired the weapon legally. Or that he was sober. Or that there wasn't some other illegal activity going on. Or that this will be their first negative encounter with law enforcement.

Now that was brandishing a weapon. It's not nice you know. This guy could get some serious probation for that.

It was over when "management" called it quits.

They built it, not knowing what it would turn out like. They raised it up, cultivated it, even fertilized it to help it grow. Then came in with the scythe, whacking away at everything in their path to the water cooler, and leveled what had been a thriving community that resembled our community. Warts and all. It's a damn shame.

Poor Joel. He tries. He really does. but it's days before anyone even notices he's posted a new thread.

Nope. The life of this board is gone. Time to pull the plug and bury this 6' down.

Crisp: Get ready for more gunplay

Clearly, maybe everybody doesn't see that no one wants there to be more loss of life, from "gun play", knife play, a 7 iron, bombs, bats, or anything else. But, there is a number of people who believe that taking away guns, or placing even more severe restrictions on law abiding citizen gun owners won't put a dent in crime, robbery, theft, jackings, thuggery, spousal abuse, rape or murder. See story earlier this past week of the knife play slaughter of dozens upon dozens in China. China, a country with too loose of knife laws. Fer sure.

You see, it's not guns that are the problem. It's people. And anti-gun people are basically pro-criminal people with no moral outlet to vent their true anger at the criminal. Get tough on crime. Get tough on criminals. Leave the law abiding citizens alone.

Wow. Crisp is one scared dude. And in typical fashion, blaming the one thing that isn't a threat to anyone.

Athens man stabbed after apparent attempted robbery

Sum thymes two off ten.

A play on words is cool, when used intentionally. Typos, by someone holding themselves out as a professional. Not so much so.

Shaking my head wondering why....why the ace reporters can't read what they write before posting it....why management thinks typos are worth a rate increase.

Oh good lord. Next thing they'll be doing is terrorizing the public about the days getting longer and the nights getting shorter. It all leads to no good I tell ya. No good.

    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
