New OnlineAthens.com and ABH audience VP looks forward to Athens return

Welcome. As jtsim's post indicates, you've got your work cut out for you. We posters welcome the fresh face and hope you are "it". I personally hope you are just what the ABH/Online Athens has needed, to make this place what it once was. I personally learned a lot from posters "in the day" that are no longer here, even those I didn't always agree with. Welcome again!

Garth Brooks comes back to Atlanta for first of seven shows tonight

@theold33: There was only one way to take it. It meant he didn't need or want my money. I'm in agreement with the "helluva ride" though. You have a wonderful weekend too theold33!

Garth Brooks comes back to Atlanta for first of seven shows tonight

Back in the day, many, many years ago, Garth told us he had enough money for the rest of his life, his kids lives, his grandkids, great grandkids and great great grandkids. That was the last time I listened to anything he had to say, must less any of his music. As a youngster trying to live day to day back then, that was something that I didn't digest too well.

"Nobody cooperates". The expression, " Thick as thieves" comes to mind. Sick

Police: Cardinals RB Dwyer head-butted wife

Domestic violence in this country is alarming. The sports connection is just a teeny-tiny part of what goes on in everyday households while the children watch. We have a war going on here, at home, in the good ole USA among our very own citizens. I'm thankful I've never been a victim.

Sheriff: Burned armpit hair led to Idaho car crash

@Oistrakh: Correct. That's when they stopped, dropped and rolled, as learned in elementary school.. Big smile Big dummies, bet they don't try that again.

Olive Garden defends breadstick policy

[quote][b]barryhollander[/b] - Understand that my wife is Cajun, my kids have grown up eating what she cooks or when visiting family in south Louisiana twice a year.[/quote] Can I come eat at your house? Smile Real cookin is hard to come by these days. Sounds like your kitchen is the place to be. My daughters mother in law, who is of the same Cajun persuasion, sent me some jambalaya ? one time. When I saw it bubbling while in the refrigerator, I decided it wasn't for me. I don't think it was supposed to do that. Sick Smile

(Edited to say. I did not make this bold or big. Crazy computer, I guess.)

Skunk with head stuck in beer can rescued in Ohio

The little stinker knew when to "hold'em", didn't he? He must have been more concerned about what was "ahead" of him instead of what was "behind" him. Good job animal control.

Athens man brutally beats girlfriend

I suspect it's what they saw growing up. It's all they know. Never taught any different. Then you have the "boob tube" that features "programming" where violence and drama is the main attraction. It's a sick, sick world. I pity the children. Sad

Making jokes about domestic violence is just sick to the rotten core.

Juvenile-justice reforms show results, officials say

They just fling this crap on the wall and hope it sticks. What it really does is just slide slowly down the wall to the floor for someone to step in. Sick

Olive Garden defends breadstick policy

I've eaten at Olive Garden twice in my life. I did give them a second chance. I certainly didn't go there for bread sticks and salad, however, they were better than the lasagna, that I'd have sworn came out of a box in the frozen food section of Ingles.

Now, when Red Lobster stops serving me those yummy biscuits, I'll mark them off my list too.

I'll have to give DePalma's a shot.

Go back to drawing board on grading teachers, Lanoue tells lawmakers

Snarkydude is right on the money, as usual. His way of speaking the truth is as good as it gets and that's a rare thing here or anywhere. Too bad all parents aren't required to take the courses that Bertis Downs speaks of. Today's children are often doomed from the start.

    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
