Maybe the writer should've read the story. The paper did not declare it a nightmare -- that was a quote from Aaron Murray, and from his perspective it was a nightmare by all accounts.posted @ Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 10:55
The idea that they can brew the beer there, but you have to drive down the road to buy it somewhere else is the absolute most backward, free market despising policy I've ever heard in my life.
Athens has potential to become a brewery mecca -- a boon to the economy and overall quality of life -- but our free market and personal freedoms hating state government won't allow this.posted @ Monday, November 4, 2013 - 09:27
@Trip_McNeely: I'm certain that if Wal-Mart, or Selig proposed a massive development square in the middle of Watkinsville, noone would complain or feel that community input would be necessary -- because doing so would be anti-business right?posted @ Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 18:41

@2dollar: A study from Backpacker a few months ago shows a higher success rate from those who use spray on bears than those using guns. Dogs are different of course, but toting a gun in the backyard? And busting a cap in the neighbor's dog? She really should call the pound, but I'd keep the spray handy until it gets picked up.posted @ Friday, October 25, 2013 - 16:51
@cwillocks: In everything I've read, pepper spray is the most effective way to fend off bears. I'm pretty sure this will work on dogs also.posted @ Friday, October 25, 2013 - 13:57

Nice work by Wayne Ford in getting an interview with the perp apparently while he's still at large. It's would be nice, however, to know the circumstances by which he got the interview.posted @ Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 16:08

Correct me if I'm wrong but I've read about every article on this film and still not one word as to what it's about. A title like "the spectacular now" begs that question.
I want to support the local effort but don't want to get in there to see a musical.

Since we're talking about Germany and Georgia, Waycross has a plant that produces wood pellets, a renewable energy that requires minimal material to warm a home. Guess where they don't use it? That's right, Waycross or anywhere else in this state or country I'm aware of.posted @ Friday, July 5, 2013 - 23:53

@rcbljc: Obviously the copy editor didn't bother to read the article. But even funnier is the comically bad graphic showing the old and new Korger location, where the store is doubling its square footage yet both appear the same size.posted @ Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 08:18
Snodgrass nailed it. Why do we celebrate and tolerate a non-native species that overwhelms the habitat of native species. I would be interested in fishing for native smallmouths in the north Georgia mountains, but they're for the most part gone due to these non-native trout, which basically go limp as soon as they bait the hook.
There's no sport in that.posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 13:28

Instead of making new laws -- and please, Georgia don't make any new laws -- the state is busy undoing rediculous laws on the books. Kind of like taking away the restriction of selling beer for take out within 100 yards of a university, thus eliminate the possibility of a downtown grocery store.
It's not like a collective body studied and looked into this and determined it was for the public good. They were just feel-good laws to begin with.
I'm not taking up for the repubs, but it wasn't until they took over the general assembly that brewpubs were really able to exist in Georgia -- in otherwords, there were no high gravity beers allowed under democrat control of the state.posted @ Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 07:52
