Wow, you would think that TEN DAYS in jail would have convinced him not to assault an officer!posted @ Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 17:55
NO!!! He was on probation and he had a gun? Surely he knew that was against the rules......posted @ Saturday, February 8, 2014 - 09:48

".... recent complaints of drug activity"??? RECENT??? There's been drug activity on that corner for at least 20 years. What else is new?posted @ Tuesday, January 28, 2014 - 08:42
It just amazes me that someone running from the cops will turn his lights off so they won't see him, for all the world like the one-year-old baby who closes his eyes and thinks YOU can't see HIM! LOL!posted @ Friday, January 24, 2014 - 08:24
Oh, yeah, a fo'-in-the-flo' or two or three along the way. Like the 5-speed the best but they were fun, too.posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 - 17:19
I learned on a three-on-the-tree! Glad to 'graduate' to a 5-speed fairly quickly. Made sure my kids learned to drive the 5-speed, too.
I laugh every time I read an article like this one. It happened right here in Athens G A not too many years ago.posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 - 16:30

@melmarino: Contracts are signed in late winter/early spring for the upcoming *school year*. Health insurance changes have to be made in October for the upcoming *calendar year*. So no, teachers don't know what changes will occur in health insurance when they sign their employment contracts.posted @ Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 11:16
Sad -- I loved their food, esp. the Caesar salad, but service was unpredictable, at best, and sometimes just plain sorry.posted @ Friday, January 10, 2014 - 18:38

I'm confused. She used a stolen driver's license as ID. So this stolen DL just happened to look like her??? What were the chances? Or it didn't look like her, and the bank accepted it anyway? Either way, it doesn't make sense.posted @ Monday, January 6, 2014 - 17:22
Yep, I'd knew there would be at least one negative comment about this. Just surprised there aren't more already.
Someone 'pulls himself up by his bootstraps' and succeeds against all odds and yet is CRITICIZED??? WTF, indeed???posted @ Friday, January 3, 2014 - 07:13

[quote][b]OCCountry[/b] - Have to wonder why the judge was so quick to declare him dead? Especially when he had not been missing for very long and was a fugitive.
I imagine there was something in it for the judge....posted @ Wednesday, January 1, 2014 - 11:15

"What we don’t need is more anger directed at “bad parents.” It accomplishes nothing. Every adult in this community, along with our churches, nonprofits, schools and government, has a moral obligation to all our children. While we may not agree on exactly what those obligations are, we can still roll up our sleeves and get to work."
Every one should paste this on their bathroom mirrors and read it every morning, esp. the first sentence!posted @ Sunday, December 29, 2013 - 08:47

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.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
