Normaltown residents trying to save threatened tree

Even if there are no plans to actually cut it down, I hope the builder takes adequate precautions not to kill it by accident. A tree like this needs a very large buffer from all construction activity to protect the root system.

Fornash, director of area animal shelter, steps down

It is a tragedy that shelters are forced to euthanize so many animals. Nevertheless, this is far preferable to the suffering of dogs and cats who do in fact starve to death and are in fact killed, trying to survive on their own. Animal shelters provide an important service by providing humane care and – for those who are not adopted – death with dignity.

Health scores

Actually, anything below 90 is a "B" rating, and indicates some significant deficiencies in safe food handling. Preferably, the score should be 92 or above. I always check the health scores at PublicHealthAthens.com to decide where to eat. Also, the scores should be posted and clearly visible when you walk in.

    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
