Worker at NM gun shop accidentally shoots customer

When loading or unloading a gun do not point it in the direction of another person, I've found the floor or ground is a much better direction to point the gun. It's also helpful not to put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot the gun! Guns can go off by accident of course, therefore, you NEVER point it at anyone, ever! Anyone who does not know this should NOT be handling a gun in the first place!

Clarke County to preserve 310 acres near Oconee River

How many of those beautiful trees will be cut down so people can walk in the woods? God's untouched beauty is much better than anything man can come up with.

Residents free of fear in former North Place neighborhood

I agree things have changed at North Place, not to the extent claimed here however.

There is a Hispanic gang there, mostly young teens doing petty stuff, not too hard to put up with.

You have to consider when you hire thugs and they are going into tenants homes, it's like shopping, you just come back later and get what you want. It's happened. (For Mr. Snodgrass, it's the thugs not the Hispanics they hire.)

There are still the drug dealers and thieves, but the neighborhood looks better for sure. I wonder, in the last week how many times the police department has been called out there? That would be interesting to know.

There are nice, decent, good people who live there also, it is definitely a mixed neighborhood of races and types of people, like most places.

Woman reports man raped her

Just because the woman knew the man does not mean that they had any type of relationship. Not much information to go on here.

Battle over kids of professor who killed 3

I think the kids should get their own lawyer to stop the adults on both sides of the family from spending THEIR money to decide where they should live when they know the family they choose to be with.

Regents hire firms for Navy school work

@concerned citizen in athens: Obviously you don't. Not every company hires illegal AILENS (not residents). Haven't you heard of E-Verify?

Nice for Valdosta revenues, too bad for local construction companies, and by the way not all construction companies hire illegals, so please do not lump all of them together.

Can't Conservatives and Liberals hit the Re-Start Button?

'Most people think like me'... 'I know for a fact that all conservatives agree with me' LOL! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

That is a funny article!

After the last two years honey, we will be crying the blues for many, many, many years to come and pointing fingers and blame, blame, blame Obama for every horrible decision he has made! Get over it! Get use to it! Learn to love it! We had to and now so do you! LOL!

'As a child of pure southern roots I know for a fact that all conservatives agree with me about Hitler and Jesus most folks agree about Social Security too.'

How he/she got Hitler, Jesus Christ and Social Security in the same sentence..?!

Now don't any of you go talking bad about Odumbo, sticks and stones and all that! NOT! LOL!

Hawaii lawmakers want release of Obama birth info

As all of you know, a Certificate of Live Birth is NOT a Birth Certificate and if you didn't know that, you do now! It's two (2) different documents.

I have my original Birth Certificate that has my mothers thumb print and my foot prints along with her original blue-inked signature along with my father/mother information, i.e., name, place of birth, their parents name, etc.

I have a Certificate of Live Birth which has nothing original on it. It is all reproduced on a document that gives a record of the info on the Birth Certificate, however, it is not a Birth Certificate, but a Certificate of Live Birth. No original signatures or prints of any kind...and can easily be reproduced by anyone anywhere.

Oconee Blotter

Kohl's Department Store/Walmart seems to be the target for many shoplifters, it is a shame the thieves do not read the newspaper, they would know how many get caught stealing there. Then again I wouldn't think many shoplifters would be educated enough to read in the first place! Idiots! Thieves should not get probation, they should go straight to jail or they haven't learned a thing.

Lawmaker files bill to crack down on illegal immigration

@cyou299: You favor punishing U.S. business owners who are struggling in this down economy, okay, you have your opinion. However, why not punish the person who is here illegally? Does the person here illegally not deserve punishment? I bet those who come here and go through the proper channels to become a citizen would disagree.

Where does the ten more will come, ten more will suddenly stop hiring illegalls, ignored by repubs? Figures came from?

Lawmaker files bill to crack down on illegal immigration

@The Invisible Hand: Unfairly Blamed? You have to be kidding!!! LOL!

We do not deport non-taxpaying citizens, they go to jail, but illegals just get to go home and find their way back again and again and yet again.

You don't want to blame illegals for draining our economy, jobs and welfare system, but you want to deport citizens of the U.S. because they don't pay their taxes, and I question that half the population doesn't pay taxes, where did you find the figure? Just curious.

Perdue advises calm on immigration

@cyou299: Good reply, I wonder how many people care or bother to look where the presents they buy for their families came from.

"Buy American" use to be a slogan we pushed, oh, but wait, we don't manufacture anything anymore, all our jobs went overseas!

Perdue advises calm on immigration

Okay Sonny, I will choose my words wisely! There is a path for immigrants to follow to become a citizen already. It's a path they do not want to make the effort to go through for some unknown reason, but it's their choice to do it or not. I am glad the DREAM ACT failed. Illegal Mexicans - GO HOME! Immigrants are sending all their money back to Mexico anyway, boarder security is a joke. I am all for jumping on the Arizona band wagon. If police are paid to bust people breaking our laws, then they should already be doing immigration status checks when they pull people over, they are here illegally.

Just so some of you will know, when you receive your "Government Check" be it unemployment, or welfare, that money comes from MY pocket, it's not money sitting around that the Government got from any place other than hard working U.S. Citizens who pay taxes and give you free money to sit you your butt and watch TV. In talking with someone the other day, I discovered there are people who do not have enough education or sense to realize this! Amazing! The only money the Government has is OUR Money, ya Dumbos! By OUR, I mean those who WORK! No offense to those who have enough education to know this basic fact already!

Teen to be tried as adult in rock attack

To take advantage of a 94 year old man is is horrible! Imagine his fear, he must have felt helpless. As you get older, whether you are a man or woman, losing the ability to defend yourself is scary even if nothing happens to you.

I have a stun gun in my car, a loaded 357 in my bedroom and I keep my keys by my bed so I can hit the alarm on my car to get the attention of neighbors if someone breaks in my house. I think I'll get that carry permit, and yes, I can shoot with pretty good accuracy from 100 ft. I think I could hit someone standing in my bedroom doorway with no problem. Thank God for 3 sons who hunt and taught their mom how to shoot!

Yes he should be tried as an adult!

    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
