Largest Kroger in Georgia opened Wednesday in north Athens

@cyou299: I want to keep my money in Madison County but that depends on my price and truth mission. I hope the Ingles bigwigs are reading these comments. Have a great evening cyou299.

Largest Kroger in Georgia opened Wednesday in north Athens

I've been an Ingles shopper since they opened in Madison Co. I recently had a guy tell me that on average the prices are $1.00 more in Madison Co. than the one in Commerce. Why, I asked? He said because no other grocery store was close by and they kinda had ya. I hope that's not true because I had planned to stay with Ingles to keep my tax money in Madison County. I will be in touch with Ingles to see if their store prices are the same in every store or not. I'll also compare prices with this new Kroger to see for myself who wants my business. Puzzled

Stabbed Athens man won’t press charges

When he refused to identify any of the people who attacked him, it canceled out the good he had going for him. Respect your elders, I like it.

Hood claims he heard dead brother's voice before shooting Athens police officers

@snarkydude: You're right of course, but we can still dream. Besides some of us might not see the end result here and It'd be nice to go out thinking he got what he deserved. Smile

@OCCountry: Our wishing won't get that done. He'll sit (probably not quietly) while the "death for you" cocktail flows throughout his murderous body. Sounds great, don't it?

New Kroger Marketplace opens today in Athens

[quote][b]RoyBoy[/b] - Could the ABH do a background story on the details?[/quote] They could, but won't. That would go against their grain, if you know what I mean.

Edited to say: Dang it, I didn't make this bold.

@TeeWee: A 4 car wreck happened there this morning. Probably looking to see what all the commotion was about in the parking lot. Might even been trying to get there for the freebies. I foresee lots of wrecks there.

Study: Social media users shy away from opinions

[quote][b]grove600[/b] - Some of the tossing was justified. Others, not so much so. [/quote] And then there was boasting by the hammerhead that loved cleaning house. I've heard he's quite the facebook, twitter bird. That seemed to me as offensive as the things people said that got them hammered in the first place. I think he lost a lot of respect after that.

Study: Social media users shy away from opinions

I don't want to argue in person, must less online. I generally try to interject when I see someone fixing to cross over into the ABH abyss. Once you cross that red line it's hard to come back. We're missing a lot of good posters that got caught up in the opinion trap. I went there once because someone misunderstood my post, which can be easy to do when your not face to face. Can't read facial expressions or tone online.

Grill fish whole to make most of its flavor

He doesn't have a leg to stand on. As time gets closer to his demise, he's prone to say anything.

Alleged DUI bicyclist leads Athens police officer on chase

@TMKvetch: From his staff profile: "As an IT professional, Daniel ensures that networks. servers, computers and software are running smoothly."

I think he incorporated his "running smoothly" into running from the police. I guess he needs more schoolin in the common sense, right or wrong department. I wonder what UGA thinks of his actions or do they get a free hall pass?

Yarbrough: Texting while driving is 'idiotic obsession'

@Greg Benson: If said Officer can shoot the cellphone out of their hand without taking their hand completely off, I say go for it. You know, like in the old western's. They really had some fancy rootin tootin shootin. Wink (We'll settle for a hefty fine first though.) Cash

No amount of "education" will rip their cellphones from their hands. Killing someone may get their attention though. Ghost

    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
