Athens-Clarke mayor issues clarification of marijuana stance

Why doesn't she "instruct" her police chief to follow her convictions and "lighten up" -- or find another chief that's more into modern thinking.

Athens police officer assaulted when making arrest

If he had been sentenced appropriately before, this would not have happened. Our DA and courts suck.

UGA swimmer Kalisz cleared to compete; Bauerle status remains unchanged

Why is the Ath. Dept. hiding whatever is going on with Bauerle? Ga. supporters have a right to know. Why hasn't ABH filed a freedom of info action? Let's get this out in the open!!

Gov't offers new approach to classroom discipline

Not a fan of Eric Holder or Washington, but this time he makes a littke sense. I'm tired of all this silly, PC zero tolerance BS when kids are kicked out of school for having some little plastic toy that resembles a gun or knife. School administrators (and government in general) need to use more common sense (if they have any).

Next LSUA chancellor faces challenges

Seems that this story, if its gonna run at all, should be that a NE Ga man is in the running for the job. Otherwise, who in NE Ga cares what they're doing in Alexandria, LA? And who is Andrew Leavitt anyway? Come on, ABH. Get with it!

Charter ups Internet speeds for customers

Meanwhile, Charter raises rates AGAIN without any prior notice to subscribers and apparently no publicity. Never saw anything in the ABH on either of the last two increases. And no new channels for the additional cost. Just shows what Charter thinks about its customers.

    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
