Bless you, Myra. But I still feel helpless -- I felt helpless when I was in the classroom, and now I feel helpless as a grandparent.

Seems to me the bus is 29 years old......

Either way though, it's a great idea for all involved.

Athens police offer tips to avoid area phone scams

One of the best tips would be: DON'T ANSWER your phone! Many scammers will not leave voice mail or messages so you don't even have to decide whether or not to respond. If you do answer and it's a scammer, HANG UP! It's not rude to hang up on a dishonest person!

Athens police determine woman not shoplifting when newborn dropped on head

@snarkydude: Snarky, you make some really good points here! But I'm not going to plus you today (I do sometimes) because you had to get in some left-bashing.

"Climate change" IS a more correct term than "global warming". And diversity is not another word for affirmative action.

However it is HIGH TIME we got more judgmental -- you got that right, for sure!

Two dogs killed in westside Athens arson fire

@Jerry NeSmith: I was wondering about 'westside', too. When it was first reported, it was reported as 'eastside' so I checked today, and sure enough, Laurel Pointe is still on Gaines School Road -- EASTside.

Police: Cardinals RB Dwyer head-butted wife

He head-butted her!!! Every woman in America should refuse his sexual advances if he thinks he can act like that!

Alleged gang members barred from Athens apartments

That is just ludicrous!

South Carolina man jumped by UGA fans

@Oistrakh: Just like I said in response to a comment on another article: UGA fans + thugs = one and the same. Certainly not all, but many....

Hood claims he heard dead brother's voice before shooting Athens police officers

Too bad his brother's voice didn't remind him of what he was doing when he was killed....

I continue to count my lucky stars that I have a reason that I can't be on that jury, should I get called.

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.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    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
