But really, if it were up to me, I'd make sure Joe got more staff to help him. He has crazy multiple things to do - daily. He can't be everywhere at once. I think he gets calls in the middle of the night; he has to go to court; he has to look up prior records; he has to be onsite for big stories.... I mean it is a lot for one guy. Athens CRIME is horrible - which makes his role pretty maddening, I would guess.
In a perfect world, we'd get all current updates on here via a Nixle stream from all surrounding counties in it's own little Nixle corner, and then he could write the big stories.
I kind of feel bad for Joe.posted @ Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 14:50
[quote][b]Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass[/b] - I just got a picture of the witness to the armed robbery at Lay's Food Mart. Vital information for the community, not on OnlineAthens.com yet.
I got that 2 hours ago on Facebook... lolposted @ Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 14:27

If you look at this area on a map, it is very close to being right in the center of Clarke County, but definitely is NOT West Athens.posted @ Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 15:08
Good. I'm sure - Probation for Sposato.
Martin, on the other hand is a slippery kind of stupid. Stupid enough not to turn himself in. But he'll slip up, and they'll find him, and hopefully put him away for a long, long time. ACC please - no more probation for Brian Martin.posted @ Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 13:11

Depression is not easy. I know when I struggled with serious depression in the past, the LAST thing I wanted was attention, and/or for others to think that was what I wanted. Most people who suffer with depression need normalcy and sometimes a bit of encouragement. Everyone is different. I'm pretty sure she does not need a guilt trip either. Ms. Breedlove, I am pulling for you. Even though I don't walk in your shoes, I have been there to some degree.posted @ Saturday, January 18, 2014 - 21:42
As I said before (when he was arrested last week), Brian Keith Martin is a POS. Hang it up Brian. I don't think anyone you know will help you out of this one. Probation all those times before are catching up with you. ACC this germball won't change. Look what he did to an Elderly Good Samaritan. Please send him to do hard time this time.
I feel so bad for this 79 year old victim, or anyone else who gets in the same car as this scumbag.posted @ Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 23:09

Still a redistribution of wealth by the force of government. It would seem to me if women truly wanted equality we should be MORE than willing to oblige them.
The terms you set is not technically a redistribution of wealth. Child Support and Alimony would be an obligation. Now if there are deadbeats out there (male or female) who don't pay, then......may the force be with them.posted @ Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 19:03
[quote][b]friendlyfire[/b] - @Crusader: That's something that has come out of a previously legally committed relationship entered into voluntarily, not something handed out by the government at the expense of the taxpayer.

I would say that those groups would be those who advocate for the forced redistribution of wealth. Some on Wall St. fit that bill, but, so do some on Main Street.

[quote][b]jtsim[/b] - @Lady of the Lake: We don't know how good we have it here because we have become spoiled. We are too wrapped up in ourselves that we forget the ones that gave their lives for the rest of us.
I agree 100% about the ones who gave their lives for the rest of us. And I agree --to a point-- about being spoiled. I do think it is OK to have what we want if we work hard for it, and still find the desire to give of our own free will to others. We deserve our hard-earned paycheck. However, if we keep proper perspective and a good attitude it is OK to have what we want. I believe it is the groups who feel "entitled" and jealous of others - that normally are the spoiled and greedy ones. Most of them don't have any idea of the cost our Veterans have given for us to enjoy a free society.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 22:16

So, if I lived in Nigeria, even though I am NOT gay, but I am a BIG supporter of gay rights, according to their new law, I'd be jailed too - just for "supporting" the right to be gay.
There used to be sodomy laws on the books in the U.S. There may still be those laws in a few states - but I'm not sure.
America has come a LONG way over the years with respect to a lot of unfairness. I really, really wish that people who continue to cry, scream, rant and rave, and "Occupy Whatever" just to push their own agendas would take a good hard and honest look at how good we really have it here in America.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 17:20
[quote][b]Pfunk[/b] - With all the problems that country has they decided to target the gay community. Sounds like our last administration.
We could talk about the Bush administration targeting specific communities, or we could talk about the Obama administration targeting specific communities.
I believe a conversation about the Obama administration's targets would be a much more revealing and interesting, actually.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 15:27
Great story! I was looking at the pictures and came across this caption where Kelin is hugging Clarica.

@chockfullaquestions: I think glaciers and polar ice melting have been going on for centuries, and glaciers and polar ice freezing have as well. I think it is just the way it is - whatever will be will be. The record years of high temps is interesting, because global temperatures have only been recorded for a few decades. That too, I believe is consistent with glaciers and polar ice melting and freezing as well.
I do not believe man's impact on the environment will be our ultimate cause of self-extinction. However, I do believe we will destroy ourselves in some way. I don't have a crystal ball to predict our own demise, but if I did, I'd probably see World War III.posted @ Friday, January 10, 2014 - 20:47

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.

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
