Grenade found in Athens storage unit

The pin was still in place, according to the report.

If the pin was not in place: 1 - You better be running for cover or 2 - It was a dud

Man seen jumping on UGA student’s SUV hood

"The suspect was described as a college-age white male with a small build and short blonde hair who wore a T-shirt and shorts, police said."

With that description, I am sure they will find him quickly.

Geo Tracker stolen off Athens street

Exactly what I was thinking. Who would go to the trouble to steal a GEO Tracker? There must be more to this story.

More child sex-assault charges for Athens maintenance man

Put him into the general population at prison. Even prison inmates hate child molesters. That smirk would be wiped off his face really quickly.

Man stabbed behind Athens apartments

I better start carrying a pack of cigs around with me from now on even though I do not smoke. It is very dangerous out in ACC for people not armed with cigs.

Now where is the sarcasm font when you need it.

Wrightsville woman arrested for spanking customer's child

Yes. If you are referring to the brat child throwing a cookie jar at the woman.

@Ugles:

@Bellehowell: Do either of you actually have children? If so, I find it hard to believe you'd be cool with a stranger beating them.

[/quote]

None of my children would be running around crazy at any store. I would take care of the situation myself. It would not have gotten to the point of someone else needing to be involved.

It sounds as if the eight year old's father was letting the child run around without any supervision. I have seen this may times. I do not believe a stranger should lay a hand on a child. The father should stopped his own child well before the eight year old threw a cookie jar at a woman.

BTW I have thought really hard about tripping one of these crazy kids running around with their so called parents letting the child do whatever they wanted to do.

Man found squatting in foreclosed home

(Isn't there a vacant building close by that the city of Athens can sort of fix up for the homeles) Are you nuts? They would be drawn to Athens like flys.90% of them are like they are due to poor life choices,And or week around drugs.Or just lazy.........

[/quote]

They are already drawn to Athens due to the may programs Athens has for the urban outdoors men and women. They come from all of the surrounding counties.

But I do agree with you that most are where they are due to their poor life choices.

Upton brothers could surpass Waners as baseball's best

That sounds like a scary batting line up. B.J. Upton, Justin Upton, Heyward, Freeman and Uggla. Could be very scary IF they can all perform.

MSNBC criticized for editing of gun hearing video

Once upon a time news outlets reported the news. Now days they create the news, either by being in the news or pushing their slant.

Barking dog halts possible burglary of Athens home

The only problem I have with owning a big dog is that I find FedEx packages in the middle of the yard. The delivery person did not make it all the way to the door.

Athens homes, business burglarized

[quote][b]ghostwriter[/b] -

Hmmm....Very few comments. Why? Because it's the new norm. Nobody's surprised anymore.

[/quote]

I predicted that the ABH would combine the burglaries into one story long ago. This seems to be the new norm in ACC. A year ago these stories would have been three different articles.

Atlanta police officer halts prison smuggling attempt

Prisoners today have it way too easy. Television, visits from baby momma, three meals a day, exercise, etc.

Agree. Back to the days of the chain gangs. Make prison a place where people do not want to go. Now days some commit a crime just to get back to prison where they have an easier time than on the outside.

I did not know that it was breaking news that Jim Nabors was gay. I really thought that was common knowledge a very long time ago.

@Greg Benson: You really have to let us know that you're being sarcastic. There are so many that believe as you wrote that without some indication people will take what you said literally. I did. Sorry.

[/quote]

That is why we need a sarcasm font on the board. Unless you are familiar with the people that post here it is really hard to tell that they are being sarcastic in some cases.

    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. 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.

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
