Obama proposes firearm background check changes

Maybe the president should clean up this pile of cluster fudge he just put on our doorsteps before unveiling another hair-brained scheme. I'm just sayin'...

It could have been much worse...they could have bit his penis.

Oconee County blotter

Not a good week for Mr. Favors. Wonder if the slapping is what caused the kidnapping?

Ex-congressman reports to North Carolina prison

I'm sorry, but who's son is he again? This wonderfully vague article mentioned a famous civil rights leader in the last sentence, but never mentioned him by name. The headline was also remarkably vague. Someone trying to protect their agenda here?

Starbucks says guns unwelcome, though not banned

"There's a big difference in the connotation of someone holding a gun and someone holding a cigarette,"

Yet, how many people died as a result of cigarette smoking as opposed to dying as a result of gun violence? I would almost bet the house that the former is much greater than the latter.

Athens homicide parolee busted for drugs after traffic stop

T.K. Hardy??? Where you been for the last 40 years?

Seriously though, I again would like to beg the question about the three strikes policy, because this guy would certainly be a good candidate for this program, now wouldn't he?

Athens man caught stealing diapers

So, not only does she have to live with the humiliation of being arrested, but she also has to deal with the humiliation of being labeled a man by the A B-H?

Athens career criminal indicted for car break-ins while on parole

Whatever happened to that three strikes deal? Do we still do that? If so, then he would be a good candidate for that program.

Two students injured in wreck at North Oconee High

@jeleclekat: nice comeback...it's obvious you have to copy what's written, as it seems impossible for you to come up with an original thought of your own.

Two students injured in wreck at North Oconee High

@jeleclekat: The entrance road to both Rocky Branch Elementary School and North Oconee High School from Highway 53 is by the football field. Maybe not make geographical assumptions if you're not familiar with the area, eh?

@Athens Trojan: Was your last sentence directed at Mr. Putin or Mr. Obama?

Friends honor longtime Oconee County tennis coach with dedication of 'Gruetter's Grove'

Congratulations to a good man, and here's to hoping that Sheila Beckham is never around long enough to have anything unofficially named in her honor.

Hundreds gather in Athens at 'Justice for Trayvon' rally

Okay, this article could have been another 20 pages long, but if you include the phrase, "Rev. Al Sharpton" in the first few paragraphs of anything, you guarantee that 99.9995% of rational thinking people of all races will not take much of what follows afterward seriously.

If the black community were truly looking for a real discussion about this, they would tell Rev. Al Sharpton to stay out of it.

And if the black community of Athens is looking for something to seriously protest, they might want to read the article from last week about the unemployment rate of black Athenians. That seems like something Ms. Glenn should want to look into.

Pro football player Hernandez charged with murder

Apparently Hernandez told his new teammate Tebow to throw the gun in the woods, so police searched the pond.

Chambliss' comment on sexual assault becomes campaign fodder

So, how are the comments of someone who is retiring at the end of his term exactly campaign fodder?

If you're generalizing that his comments are bad for Georgia republicans, then I would bet that you and Buckwheat above me here would just hate for comments made by democrat representative Hank "Guam is gonna tip over" Johnson to be used in the same manner...

Tim Pernetti resigns as Rutgers athletic director

The president needs to go too. Just two days ago, he said that the AD's job was safe because he helped land the contract that helped Rutgers join the Big Ten. Money over morals can't fly in this case.

@bobby light: So, it's okay for you to be small-minded with regards to the Madison County bank story, but not okay for someone to be small-minded here?

Methinks your commenting reeks of hypocrisy...

Sequestration will cost state jobs, hundreds of millions in funds, administration says

Wouldn't it be nice if the author had mentioned that the President is the person responsible for the sequestration in the first place? He proposed it, and is now being allowed to complain about how it will be affecting us? Hypocrisy knows no bounds to these people!

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    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
