I haven't seen the cameras at Barnett Shoals and Gaines School, and they are not at Gaines School and Lexington anymore. I think they were supposed to be moved from that location to Gaines and B shoals. I think that project must have been put on hold b/c they are not there. And there has to be signs posted indicating they are there, and I don't think there are any signs.posted @ Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 13:18

People in Athens feed the deer, much like the stray cats. That is why there are so many near residential neighborhoods. It has nothing to do with over-population. One of my neighbors has a deer feeder in his yard.
NOTE to Athenians: wild animals do not need to be fed; they can fend for themselves.posted @ Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - 09:38

That place was nasty. I donated money there when they were unable to pay the power bill. After that, I decided to go in there and use their services (rabies shot, distemper/parvo, kennel cough shot, etc.) to help their business. Upon visiting the "trailer", I realized how nasty this place really was and I vowed to never return. I feel bad for the dogs that were housed there and I hope they found good homes.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 10:11
The owner is known, according to the story. Who is the veterinarian so people can make donations?
I'd like to know how to donate as well. It IS the season of giving.posted @ Monday, December 16, 2013 - 19:29
So is this an Omni or Bodyplex type gym that anyone can sign up for? It's not explained very well in the article.posted @ Saturday, December 7, 2013 - 21:26
yes I'd like to know how to donate to UGA too...@pepette:posted @ Monday, November 18, 2013 - 11:38
students are sometimes victimized because they lack “life experiences”..."Accepting rides from unknown individuals is highly discouraged”...so, the students lack life experiences; I'm pretty sure I learned at a VERY young age not to accept rides from strangers. No life experience needed there.
I've learned from life experience to know there is a lot more to this story than is being told.posted @ Monday, September 23, 2013 - 14:42
I like the solar-powered street lamps. Can't imagine how much those cost. Also can't imagine the upkeep. How many government employees does it take to change a solar-powered light bulb? I'm afraid we'd need another earmark.posted @ Sunday, September 22, 2013 - 02:44
@amj614: They aren't Mexicans at all. The restaurant serves as a front. Just drive by one Saturday night. You'll see.posted @ Monday, September 16, 2013 - 11:23
Don't let the Mexican name fool you. These aren't your ordinary Mexicans.posted @ Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 22:19
That place is a dump. It needs to be updated and remodeled and I doubt the new owner is going to shell out the big bucks for that. The big name stores will leave for greener pastures. Might as well bulldoze it now. We need more government housing, or maybe even a student apartment complex.posted @ Sunday, September 8, 2013 - 13:16
If you take any defensive driving course you will learn that speed is the number 1 cause of driver error. I believe the material in DD states that speed is the number 1 factor in collisions but I'd have to check that info.
I didn't realize Ofc. Baird left the Athens PD. He is a great guy and he will be a good Chief.posted @ Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 11:11
Was that other dude in the picture involved too? Oh wait, nevermindposted @ Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 15:10
@amj614: a few real 20'sposted @ Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 15:08
I bet she wasn't the only one at the PD involved in the scheme. Even if others weren't directly involved, I bet they knew something was fishy.posted @ Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 14:45
Does anyone really think that a PD that has Prius' is really going to get Tasers? I don't think so.posted @ Monday, August 12, 2013 - 14:47
I wonder if he's related to Ben Burton...you know, the "park" on Mitchell Bridge Rdposted @ Wednesday, August 7, 2013 - 11:30
This story is awesome. Way to go home-owner. He needs a prize.posted @ Monday, August 5, 2013 - 22:31
There are no gangs in Athens. Maybe he is just a Tennessee fan.posted @ Tuesday, July 30, 2013 - 15:54
Got it now, thanks. Skimmed over it the first time and only noticed the charge, but not the description.posted @ Monday, July 29, 2013 - 23:16
I'm curious to know how the plate was "improperly displayed"posted @ Monday, July 29, 2013 - 17:22
Maybe if the county officials didn't give themselves such a great raise this year (see past ABH story from a month or so ago), there would be money to pay for this traffic light. Bye bye Athens Orthopedic. I'll see you over the border in Oconee. Oh and Steak and Shake, what were you thinking? Oconee is calling you as well.posted @ Monday, July 22, 2013 - 23:31
They do the spay/neuter procedures in that trailer. Seen it with my own eyes. Sketch as heck. Remember, you get what you pay for. Use the humane society, much better facility.posted @ Monday, July 22, 2013 - 17:57
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
