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.posted @ Friday, February 7, 2014 - 21:24

If they'd have let her lie there for a minute or two, they could've added public urination to the charges.posted @ Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 23:07

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.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 22:03

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.posted @ Tuesday, December 31, 2013 - 11:12

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.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 22:43

@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?posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 22:23
@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.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 11:44
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?posted @ Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 21:11

@Humbucker bob: it probably wouldn't have been noticed. Someone called the cops on the guy, probably because they could see the car parked in the loading zone.
When you go to other people's houses, do you ask them if you can charge your phone? Or do you just go ahead and do it without asking permission?posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 09:55
The story has presented to the general public in way that's meant to rile up fans and detractors electrical vehicles. This is really a story about a jerk who thought he could unapologetically do what he wanted when he wanted. The story on 11alive has the police report, they didn't know the amount of electricity stolen and it didn't factor into their decision. I suppose you can disagree with him being arrested for his pattern of behavior but to say he was arrested only because he stole $.05 of electricity is a lie by omission.posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 09:48

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. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

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. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
