Amazing he didn't receive two 40 caliber rounds to his center mass, and one to the head, for pointing a gun at police in 2012.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 07:06
Wonder what you have to do to get sentenced to prison and actually stay there.posted @ Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 16:03
It's not a joke if they get sentenced to INTENSIVE level probation. That requires them to report to the probation officer twice a month instead of only once. That's no laughing matter, and sends a firm message that crime against the innocent is not tolerated in the Classic City, the cradle of southern gentility, where you can see the double-barrelled cannon, walk under the historic arches, visit the tree that owns itself, and get robbed, beaten, and left for dead, all on the same day.posted @ Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 16:05

Driving has too many changing variables for human beings to be able to do it flawlessly at all times. The result? Occassional accidents caused by even the safest of drivers. It is sad seeing those involved in true accidents being subjected to criminal prosecution. There but for the grace of God go any of us.posted @ Saturday, February 2, 2013 - 08:28

Cleveland seems like such a nice little town. It's hard to believe all this disharmony and strife would be allowed there. I hope it doesn't cause any problems with Babyland General, or make traffic any worse for people trying to get to Helen.posted @ Tuesday, November 13, 2012 - 20:11
it seems like in almost all of these alarming crime stories from
Athens, there's a paragraph describing how recently the offender was released from our prison system. Can anybody see the problem?

How, pray tell, did this wreck with no injuries, located far and away off of the roadway, block traffic on Hwy 441 for an hour? I'll bet I could guess.posted @ Monday, October 1, 2012 - 21:02
Only 15 miles from Albany, the cradle of Southern gentility. A lovely little town where one can sip on a mint julep and smell the sweet fragrance of honeysuckle and magnolia, before being carjacked, beaten and robbed..posted @ Tuesday, September 25, 2012 - 14:19
Resloved of the charges? And verdicts aren't usually handed out. They are handed down. Free lunches are handed out.posted @ Friday, September 21, 2012 - 17:48

I wouldn't do that job if it paid six figures.posted @ Wednesday, August 15, 2012 - 17:35
@catman: Yes. It is indeed quite a sum. Your alternatives to prison would work great. We could even take that money and buy them each a leather craft set, a metal craft set, and a mister potato head. That would teach them a craft, and life skills, instead of just tossing them in jail.

Oh, I could make a rule that people would have to stop giving me lots of money and very nice gifts............or, I could blab about it for a while in a display of political grandstanding, then just slowly let it die out and keep getting my money and gifts.

[quote][b]matt1141a[/b] - This is an easy argument to solve. Send an open records request to GCIC (GBI) and see if anyone one at Madison County queried the statewide warrant database known as 'GCIC'. Either sheriff can call GBI and do this and so can any citizen, its public record.
Doesn't it seem like the newspaper reporter would do that, and show the readers who's telling the truth. Instead they just quote what each politician says they did, and leave us to wonder.posted @ Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 15:11
Great job guys! We spent way more than we took in, there is no reduction in the drug supply, and 35 more Messican illegals are now taking up space in our jails, with 35 new ones taking their place running dope. Is this considered a win for the good guys?posted @ Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 08:02

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
