This request just shows his TOTAL lack of remorse for ruining the Bowman family's lives. Grant his request; take the anklet off...then put him in jail until his trial!posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 07:31
@fmrclarketchr: Unfortunately, our kids will remember being inundated at school, work etc. by miserable, negative people like kemosabe, who have nothing better to do on a Saturday night at midnight than post a comment on an article on which he totally missed the point. Best wishes to Mr Huckaby for a full recovery.posted @ Sunday, March 17, 2013 - 10:08
Man, it amazes me how pompous and judgmental you people are, with your 1000's of posts at all hours of the day. Who's paying your rent? Have you walked a mile in an abused woman's shoes who has called the police
over and over to get beaten again? Get a job or go volunteer at a battered women's shelter and then come back with your smart a$$ callous comments. In one way or another, most of you are living off the government too!

Unless this attorney and his client are publishing a full confession in Sunday's Banner Herald, I'm not interested.posted @ Friday, March 1, 2013 - 21:34
Wonderful news! Hopes and prayers for continued improvement. Also, hopes and prayers for the ACCPD. I'm sure they want this guy off the streets just as much as the rest of us.posted @ Friday, March 1, 2013 - 17:26
Our community has embraced this family and we all hope and pray for Emily's full recovery. I also have hope that this person that ran over this beautiful girl with his truck like a stray animal will be take into custody so he can't do the same to one of my daughters this weekend. I don't want to be negative; I want to keep all of our focus, energy, and prayers on Emily, but this young man is a threat to society and it's time to bring him in to face what he has done.posted @ Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 00:40
I can't believe that I am logging on at this hour six days after this girl was run over by a truck and no one has been arrested and there is NO MENTION OF IT ON THE ABH WEBSITE! I guess this is old news. Meanwhile, Emily fights for her life, and I'm afraid to let my daughters out this weekend, because there have been no arrests and the public has been left uninformed. Prayers for Emily and her family. Prayers for the safety of our community.posted @ Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 00:12
We all need to be done with this. I'm guilty of negative comments here too; but as I posted in the lasted update/article on Emily, this is this family's only child. She is fighting for her life and these parents' entire life and future hangs in the balance. This is Athens and we need to cut this crap out, pull it together, and act like the people this town is made of and turn our thoughts, energy, and prayers towards this family. I'll start with me.posted @ Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 21:55
God Bless this family. I can't imagine what they are going through; their only child is fighting for her life. Their whole life and future is hanging in the balance. I've been guilty of negative comments, but we've all got to pull it together and focus our energy, thoughts and prayers on this young lady and her family.posted @ Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 21:45
Why can't this suspect be identified as "a person of interest"? Serious question here. Might help some potential witnesses come forward.posted @ Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 23:37
BTW; you've nailed it Oconee mom. All of the points you've made, I have thought were the case all along. This is indeed sickening and unbelievable. I can't ever remember the police refusing to let a suspect turn themselves in. There's a storm coming for Mr. "I'm not cooperating" and the "We're not cooperating" family. I just hope the focus stays on Emily and the fact she was almost killed and is still not out of danger.posted @ Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 23:18
What happened to this story on the ABH website? It's suddenly gone.posted @ Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 22:36
[quote][b]2dollar[/b] - This story deeply saddens me.
Two lives are ruined, at minimum, not because Emily was at the wrong place at the wrong time (no disrespect, Joe), but rather, because somebody decided to drive home seemingly well past buzzed; you don't hop a curb, strike someone violently, then decide to abandon your car along with empty beer cans and open liquor bottles otherwise.
Although it wouldn't have changed the horrible injury, I can't get past the fact that the driver just sped off, and his parents refused to talk to police. They sound like real nice folks.
Well said 2dollar. No accountability in the past for his actions. Sounds like Mr Bowman is going to put a stop to that even if this punk's parents never would.posted @ Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 17:05
1. Michael Adams never uses Legion Pool so it is of no use to him. 2. It's prime real estate across from Sanford Stadium and he has another use of value to to him in mind.
3. Legion Pool will be gone within one to two years because Michael Adams has no emotional attachment to this University and it's landmarks whatsoever.
To all of the people who use the Bible as their platform of hate and/or intolerance of homosexual people: have you ever read the book of Leviticus? It's "The Law" if you still believe in the Old Testament. Also, didn't Jesus come to absolve us of our sins AND all of the craziness that came before him? The book of Leviticus states "laws", if you will, such as women cannot enter holy places such as churches and temples when they are on their menstrual periods or weeks after childbirth because they are "unclean". Do you practice this tenant of your faith? It's in the Bible. What about all of the dietary restrictions in the book of Leviticus? Do you keep Kosher? If not, how can you justify brushing certain parts of the Bible under the rug because they don't fit your personal agenda and hate thousands of people when Jesus said to love your neighbor. If you are basing your argument on the Bible, it's all in or leave God and Jesus out of it.posted @ Thursday, August 2, 2012 - 09:18
Congrats to Tom Odom and Scott Berry. It's good to see that the people of Oconee county vote on the person that's most qualified, not the person with the largest number of big, pretty signs.posted @ Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - 12:24

My sympathies for your loss. Don't even read Webbty80's posts. They are proof that he is miserable and eaten up with hatred.
@Willow: Well said.posted @ Monday, June 4, 2012 - 14:48
@girlgonzo: I agree. And if you try to nicely offer a suggestion to help these children and break the cycle of government dependence, they either get incredibly irate or shirk away to another blog to spew their hatred. Very sad.posted @ Monday, June 4, 2012 - 12:11
[quote][b]stpaisleyblue[/b] - @nice...: Here's your thought for the day: buy every child a grilled cheese sandwich with your own money since that's what charity you believe in. I like to choose who I donate money to. So, you want everyone who doesn't agree with you to get off the computer, and why would you assume those of us against 'free food' would watch Fox News? I don't watch it. What are YOU doing to break the cycle of gov't dependance? I can't tell you some of the things I've done, but I can tell you bribing the maid's daughter to stay in school still didn't work. She still got pregnant and dropped out, and that entire family is the most pathetic bunch of subhumans I've ever known with half of them either murdered, in prison or on drugs/alcohol. I think the people who allow kids to be born into poverty and crime are much more cruel and inhumane than taxpayers who work hard for their food. I already did my time with school kids and mentored after I retired. Any other suggestions? Peace be with you.
Wow!!!! Maybe you can take some of that money you used to try to try to 'bribe the maid" (???), and get a good therapist to deal with your anger management.
Good luck with that. Again, have a good day
PS- I mentor children, I don't "bribe" them. Funny, this sounds like the exact behavior your are ranting against. Hmmm.....posted @ Monday, June 4, 2012 - 11:47
Some of you people with thousands of posts, spewing a lot this anger obviously have a lot of time on your hands. Why don't you get politically involved if this bothers you so much instead of trying to snatch a grilled cheese sandwich out of a child's hands. Or, better yet, go to these summer "lunch rooms" and meet the children that you are verbally treating as collateral damage. They didn't ask to be born into the lives they lead. You might also find that, despite their circumstances, some do become educated, independent adults. (Yes, I've seen examples in my work.)
So, here's a thought for the day; push back from the computer, turn off Fox news, and ask yourself what you can actually do to help break the cycle of government dependance. Being a mentor is an excellent place to start.
Peace to all and a good day.

[quote][b]Ben-Shockley[/b] - I wonder if CNN will preempt 6 hours of their programing to bring us live coverage of her funeral at the Bellagio. Oh wait...she ONLY died of cancer and not some drug induced binge in her hotel room and passed out over her bathtub knocking her azz out and drowning herself. Just dull old boring old cancer...no drama. Good for 30 seconds of news in passing. Over and done with. File it with Davey Jones from The Monkees.
Great post Shockley. Unfortunately, you are more than likely right:( Loved Donna and her music. RIP to a true diva. That woman had some pipes! She also had class and real faith, and didn't blow her God-given, blessed talent up her nose. There's a REAL STORY for the media!!!posted @ Thursday, May 17, 2012 - 21:41

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
