One FINAL comment before I'm done on here. This neighborhood has seen much worst than some kids playing music or watching a movie. This area by no means is a nice part of town. We are a block away from projects, with frequent visits from homeless people on our porch, as well as drug raids from police at other neighbors' homes. The only reason we live here is because it is a low rent area that we can afford. There have been shootings and break ins within the last 6 months on this street. So while I do apologize for being a bother, I also don't think that we're the ones to worry about.posted @ Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 13:28
It is not too little too late. I still have no idea which house he lives in, nor who he is. He has never spoken to me or anyone who lives here in the 3 years we've been here. We've only had the police show up one time to tell us that we should watch out for the noise ordinance when it was well before it went into effect. These are the facts. We had no idea that we had become a nuisance to this individual, because no one had told us. None of our other neighbors have had a problem with anything we have done, and most of them support us. None of us are college students, we all work multiple jobs and are musicians living in a music town. The reason we organize these events is to build a sense of community when it is hard to come by these days.
I would just like to engage in a dialogue and come to some sort of understanding. I am not trying to say who is right or who is wrong, I am not trying to break any laws, and most of all the last thing I want is to be disrespectful.
Thank you.posted @ Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 13:03
Please everyone let's all just chill out. Firefighter, please email me and we can figure this out. Thanks.posted @ Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 12:43
@firefighter1: Hey, I live in the house where the ticket was issued. We have spoken to most of the neighbors that I assumed would be affected by the noise in the past. I remember the firework thing happening, that was over two years ago and I had no idea that any one had spoken to you. I was unaware that it hit your house and I apologize. My email is: email@example.com I would really appreciate it if you would email me and we could speak further about all of this. I would like to find a way to compromise where we can both be happy. We never meant to be a nuisance, only to provide some good ole community fun. I hope to hear from you soon.posted @ Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 15:22
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.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. 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
