Nevada rancher had limited sympathy in the West

Listen and decide for yourself. Obviously not a trained public speaker.

National active wear chain to open location in Athens' Bottleworks

Lululemon will make a killing. Unless you are blind you'll know that the yoga/ stretch pants are everywhere.

Black preschoolers more likely to face suspension

The statistics have been compiled and no prejudice has been implied so the only conclusion is that the kids suspended were those that deserved it.

All UGA frat hazing suspects have turned themselves in

I came on here looking for the usual litany of "privileged kids buying friends" post. What's the deal? I'm reaaaaaallly wondering why no one has posted anything derogatory about a bunch of frat boys beating each other. Come on folks, don't be hypocrites.

Personally, I think someone got their feelings hurt, not beaten. These guys will get off with community service, or less, before trial because the accuser doesn't want to go to court. Sometimes, you just have to know what you are getting into and either deal or bow out.

Athens school buses fitted with cameras to catch motorists ignoring stop arms

Another waste of money, just like the red light cameras.

Staggering UGA student arrested on alcohol charges

If they'd have let her lie there for a minute or two, they could've added public urination to the charges.

Federation of Neighborhoods hosts 'airing of grievances' with Athens candidates

Sounds like there were a lot of people yelling at kids to get off their lawn.

There is plenty of affordable housing, just not in the desirable neighborhoods where everyone wants to live.

I love the bit about the "alienation" of the "lower socioeconomic individuals" (read: poor people) because they don't show up to free classes. I wonder if the genius making that statement considered that not showing up for free classes is why most people end up poor.

Home electricity use in US falling to 2001 levels

Maybe the very moderate summer has something to do with it? I know my usage was down substantially over the summer months with no real change in equipment.

Path clears for Urban Outfitters in downtown Athens

Has Melissa link ever considered that no one cares what she thinks? Its comical how often she slinks up to the podium with incorrect information and uninformed opinion.

It's a retail store replacing a retail store, it shouldn't need to clear two separate approval processes.

@Heisenberg: Are you afraid the rifle will load itself, fire on it's own, and hit her after going through the safe and probably a wall or two?

Health care signups pick up pace in November

@E.J.: I meant what I wrote, the fubar sign up process is emblematic of the entirety. From conception, to passage, to implementation is a train wreck and the worst is yet to come.

Athens officials eye north College Avenue spot for hard-to-recycle materials center

This seems like a really poor choice for this. This is a proposed industrial use in the middle of what is essentially a residential neighborhood.

Why wouldn't you out it on the route to the existing dump site or near the Olympic industrial zone?

    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
