Report on Athens 'captives' unfounded

An officer went the address that she provided and found there were no vehicles parked there, no one answered the door, and no noises could be heard coming from the home, police said

Doesn't mean they weren't inside.....just saying.

Just another government slush fund. God only knows what they'll concoct to spend this money on. That's a rather hefty amount to divvy up among their cronies for whatever they claim is sustainable. Whatever that is. A near $1-million is alot of money for such a boondoggle and could be much more effectively spent on more surveillance cameras in downtown, Bethel Homes, and other high crime areas.

Athens-Clarke mayor makes recommendation for auditor post

Not only a very poor choice (no academic credentials for an auditor) but there should be a policy against a retiree "double dipping" on the county payroll.

The commission should balk at this.

    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.

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
