New mural celebrates Athens' creative spirit

It definitely does need a face lift there, Mr. Rosenberg. I was so happy to see the mural on my way into town a few weeks ago!

I also appreciate the city scape murals on some of the new Dollar General stores.

Many thanks to all of you.

Also does anyone on here know why we can't see photos of recent arrests and currently incarcerated on the sheriff's website anymore?

Oconee woman's wallet stolen while shopping for school supplies

Well, duh, what did she expect? Maybe next time she could just lay the purse, or even better the wallet, right on the floor so the thief could see it clearly.

I remember telling my mother forty-five years ago not to leave her purse in her cart at the grocery store, and now people are still doing it and at Walmart?

Georgia girl struck by plane on Florida beach dies

My thoughts exactly, OCC. What's a plane compared to two lives GONE and countless others (the family) damaged?

Turner Field to host naturalization ceremony

I just wish all the naysayers could attend this ceremony and see just what citizenship means to all these people.

On the other hand, maybe not, because you probably just wouldn't "get it"....

Admitted Athens cop killer in court today acting as own attorney

No, I'm saying that I am a liberal and I think the justice system in this county is a mockery, but not by my doing.

And just to clear things up, I don't support the death penalty but if there was ever anyone who deserved it, this is it! And I know Jamie personally.....

    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
