Hull man hospitalized after shooting

@MTBDawg: I know what you mean. I miss the good old days when comments were rated by who could come up with the most creative insult. I wonder if we need to get that going again. It sure doesn't seem like anybody from the ABH cares anyway.

Georgia wildlife officials urge drivers to watch for deer

If you see a deer just try to slow down. Don't serve to try to miss one. It could cause you to wreck and hit something that is a lot harder than a deer.

Hull man hospitalized after shooting

@melquiades: What do you call a reasonable use of ammo? Hunting? Target shooting? Self defense? Criminal acts?

When are liberals going to understand that even the best white neighborhoods can become dangerous in a heartbeat.

What part of the right to keep and bear arms do YOU not understand.

@PatrickD: I guess Jesse isn't reaching the masses is he? And he does have an ego.

Sixth alleged Athens gang member arrested for home invasion

With the firearms laws that we already have would someone please explain how a convicted felon can get his hands on a gun?

Never mind, I forgot the convicted felon part, convicted felons don't have to obey the same laws as the rest of us.

Pumpkin carving leads to accidental stabbing

Wonder how much pot was in the house before he started to work on the pumpkin? I bet his daughter put the whole thing on youtube.

" The divide between the haves and have-nots is getting worse really, really fast."

@daveb: If the revolt comes like you say it will it is going to be due to the fact that all the undocumented aliens are going to be taking away their welfare money.

If you are going to live off the government speak English. Or at least a form of English.

Hull man hospitalized after shooting

@PatrickD: I know that there are some groups that try to help stop gun violence in the black community but the only time we hear from them is when the victim is black and the shooter is white.

New traffic light proposed at Armstrong & Dobbs site

I thought one of the reasons the townies didn't want Wal-mart was because of the increase in traffic. I guess mixed-use development doesn't include Wal-mart shoppers.

Carter Greene named interim chief of Athens-Clarke County police

I would like to see the new chief do two things.

Give the officers tazers.

Send the officers to a class on good old fashioned butt kicking.

We are tired of reading about morons fighting with the police. The only way to stop this is to take the fight out of these thugs and drunks.

5 ways to escape an abusive relationship

A nice little J-frame revolver will also give a woman five good ways to get out of a abusive relationship. 125gr JHP +P will do nicely. And if you have to tell the abuser why the relationship is over be sure to give him all five reasons.

Some guys need things explained more than others so you want to make sure he fully understands. After you have finished you can be sure he will never abuse you or anyone else again.

Life is too short to be unhappy.

Athenstalks And Halloween

@theold33: I like the way you think. How about a horse with two rear ends? I can think of a couple of our former friends that would be perfect.

But how would you explain that to a five year old when he asks his Mommy why that horse has two butts?

Georgia making strides to lessen childhood obesity, but more still to do

One of the first steps to cut out obesity would be to stop letting people buy junk food with food stamps.

McFeatters: School discipline being turned over to police

Our children are out of hand because parents aren't doing their job. Teachers can't punish unruly students anymore. You can't put all the blame on the kids for not showing respect for their teachers or their parents when respect seems to be a thing of the past for everyone.

Man fakes doctor's excuse

@crissy9323: I agree. Athens does seem to have more than it's share of stupid people. Another reason I'm glad I don't live in Athens.

Jewish UGA students are upset

The new landlady thought she was getting one of them gated places with a golf course with a bunch of rich uppity liberals. When she found out she got a trailer park with gun toting bible thumping rednecks she bugged out quick.

You just can't get good help anymore.

    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
