This 18 year old needs to go home to mama until he has enough maturity to go to college. There are plenty of kids in West Africa that would gladly trade places with him. Some community service might help him. Maybe the university needs to revise some policies and suspend a student arrested for such conduct.

When they came to the fork in the road, their choice was to steal it.

Make the sit out the entire year. If they get in trouble again, it's bye bye.

@dorpaul: Instead of criticizing what wasn't in the article, why not just ask politely for what information you would like to have, i.e., This is great for this young student. I sure would like to know what scene to watch for. Could you describe it for us. Thanks and good luck.

Did I get it right that Mr. Bishop said that liquor by the drink has a positive impact on the quality of life. I remember when Athens didn't have liquor by the drink or even by the bottle. In my humble opinion I would said that it has not improved the qualify of life in Athens.

There was a photo in the story right after Christmas.

Why did she report it if she wasn't going to press charges. First, he verbally abuses her, then he physically abuses her.

How did she know she had been scammed? After they got the money, they probably didn't contact her again. There is a lot more to this story.

"Methods thought to help prevent prostate cancer include taking Vitamin D, reducing fats, eliminating fried foods and sugars, eating a plant-based diet and taking the anti-inflammatory Zyflamend"

I don/t believe most men would embrace the suggested plant-based (vegan) diet that is recommended in the above sidebar to the article. .

Seriously, if he ate a healthy diet and got some exercise, he wouldn't have such a weight problem. Wonder how many times a week he exercises? He doesn't look toned at all.

@Big John: You are correct. Just a little irritating that Sheriff Andrews is huffing and puffing like he solved this case when in all actuality it has been "solved" for over three years and sitting on the previous DA's desk. For some reason, the past DA just chose to let the case lie. Pun intended.

Well, I don't know Sheriff Andrews and don't live in his county, but if what I read is correct, then he should be given credit for for getting the arrest. If he hadn't spurred it on, it might has stayed "unsolved".

@Lady of the Lake: I saw a thing on TV one time that said it is impossible to drown in a toilet. They are engineered to prevent that. It was on a Forensic File show.

    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
