Heredia: Rezoning won't hurt downtown project

Jose, good for you for not being afraid to share your thoughts. I hope these nasty comments will not keep you from doing so in the future.

Everyone in this town has a right to an opinion on this issue, and they shouldn't be criticized for being brave enough to share it. If anything, we should be proud that there are young people in this town following the headlines and taking an interest.

And when a young person does decide to weigh in, maybe they should be commended instead of picked on because of their age or, heaven forbid, their name.

There is a mature and respectful way to have a discussion about this issue. This high school contributor knows that. Do the rest of you?

    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
