North Oconee falls to Buford, comes up short of reaching 3rd round of playoffs again

I disagree. That's the old " everybody gets a trophy" mentality. The trucks did what they always did. It wasn't special for that game, nor should it have been.

Stay classy. oldwarrior. The fire trucks were disinvited from OC and found a new home at NO. It's great that adults are handling this new rivalry so well--sets a terrific example for the kids.

High school football notebook: Bulldoggs running backs help end three-year losing streak

FYI, HS coaches have to teach something. ALL teachers must have their contracts renewed EVERY year. Being a coach does not give him a special contract. He has been renewed as a teacher AND head coach each year since he got here.

    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.

    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.
