Man barred from church soup kitchen

Fat girlfriends with funny looking pants have started more wars than religion or politics. Just a theory...

Meet the Creatures: Athens newest brewery set to pour this weekend

@Athens Trojan: When the parishioners realized the brewery was within easy walking distance, they dropped all objections. Wink

Two people cited in alcohol sting

@mike59: It should be the business owners conducting these stings, weeding out employees who are a liability.

Police curious about motive behind man seeking tours of UGA sorority houses

[quote][b]concerned citizen in athens[/b] - I'm not sure what law he may have broken.[/quote]

I don't see where this creepy loser actually did anything wrong. He asked a resident for a tour, she obliged him. She's the one doing everything wrong: letting him see her punch in the PIN, not asking about his motives until after the tour. I wouldn't want this kid as a housemate.

Athens man falls for scam

[quote][b]concerned citizen in athens[/b] - I'll be the first to admit that it's hard to tell the difference between a scam and another gub'ment giveaway.

Then you may be the next victim... Wink

Sad. And not to pick nits, but the correct term is "necropsy".

Why was she locked up? Is it a crime to have bad aim?

Distrubance leads to UGA student's arrest

I agree that most of his behavior was quite jerky, but knocking on restroom doors before entering is courteous. I teach my own kids to do that. Wink

Man sentenced to jail for sucking woman's toes

60 days seems a little harsh. She had to know something was fishy when a total stranger asked her to model shoes. In Walmart, no less...

Child welfare official accused of nudity

[quote][b]nowheregirl[/b] - If they were adults, it would have been funny.[/quote]

I'm sorry, but the image of an old drunk guy stumbling out of a hotel room, wearing nothing but a tee shirt, and scolding a group of kids about their bad behavior is a little funny.

    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
