Aide out over tape incident

We should be thankful that the aide didn't do harm to the child why did this reach to the newspaper. I don't think this should be in the news there is too much news out there that we never hear about put them in the news.

A-C to trim its services

I am glad the retirement age is 65 but others is able to work much older age. Many people are struggling to pay their property tax because they lost jobs and more people are getting older and not many jobs for older people there are a lot of age discremination going on. Some people have problems with their health and have too people are homeless because of these things all we are doing is hurting so many people because of government's greed.

Tethered rottweiler kills woman's puppy

Nother hurts my animals because they are my family I will do anything to protect them. Even though he slash that dogs throat did he love that puppy. When a dog have a taste of blood they are very dangerous at least the dog died instantly he didn't suffer a long time. The dog catcher would have to put that dog to sleep anyways that man just saved the tax payers money to have it done. Don't condemn that man he thought it was the right thing to do.

Bans can't dampen their fowl mood

I don't think its wrong to have chickens I just don't like roosters they chased me when I was little. My grandmother long time ago had a boarding house and she had chickens on hill st. I think those people that complains about them is afraid of them.

Heartfelt effort to save dog

I love cats and dogs I have six cats and three dogs. I did have four dogs I adopted my neighbor dog name Toby I found out my neighbor never did give that dog shots and had dental problem. I saw to it that he had shots and his teeth was taken care of but the vet found out a possible lump maybe cancer. Much later on it became positive he was in pain if that dog had surgery which I could not afford I had the dog put to sleep. The vet said if he had the surgery they would have to cut the jaw to be removed. I hated to lose him he was such a good dog he was an golden retriever.

I was at work when someone came in and told us what happen. Someone turn on the radio and we heard everything. I was surprise because I thought our country was a safe place to live that changed my mind about our own country. Don't blame Bush he wasn't president very long when that happen there is other people who suppose to keep this country safe. We dropped the atomic bomb on Japan did they blame the christians for it.

Ingles to expand in Madison

I live in Clarke county and used to shop at Ingles sometimes only small amount now. I always rounded off the prices but when I shop big twice I notice that the cashier who been there a long time end up making mistakes that cost me $30.00 each time which I can not afford to shop there any more. If I do go I try to scan myself other cashiers do it right.

    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
