Horrendous. I can't imagine how terrified these children were since they didn't feel safe enough to come forward. Sick, sick, sick.posted @ Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 13:28

@grove600: My question was simply, are these people using their energy to help fight poverty in ACC as well? I never assumed there would be less poverty because a Walmart is built. I know better. I only think there are greater fights to fight in this town.posted @ Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 15:13
What are these activists doing to help solve the poverty problem in ACC?posted @ Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 13:15

[quote][b]FREEDOM MATTERS[/b] - I would move ALL government housing projects to the edge of town and take back the most valuable land in Athens so that it could be bought by owners that actually pay property tax. (sorry UGA)
I would create strict enforceable guidelines for places like Bethel that are not owned by the government, where a lot of criminal activity takes place.
i would make sure that the housing projects that got moved to the edge of town had the best bus service, social services and education programs ever given to an impoverished community so that the chains of poverty and illiteracy can be broken forever.
i would put full time police officers at every single housing complex.
i would put up cameras that cover every angle of the public housing complexes.
SOLUTIONS are easy but our "leaders" have to be concerned with actually fixing our problems first.
What experiences have you had in social services?
Cameras at every angle? What would the cost of that be? Isn't that a violation of personal freedom?
I live on the edge of town and pay property taxes and am not interested in housing projects in my area, thanks.
What would the cost comparison be for moving and entire community of people to another area of town, rerouting buses, establishing new social service programs, and providing full time police officers in this newly built housing?

i agree with you but it is hard to since your grammar is atrocious.
to sound a bit more educated you could have said:
The point is....Regardless of the protest, these people weren't doing anything wrong. How can any of you side with the police when no law has been broken? Shame on all of you for such comments.
You're funny.posted @ Sunday, October 2, 2011 - 18:21
I've never understood why people use their real names on social websites. I also don't know why they are willing to divulge so much personal information. Thoughts?posted @ Monday, June 20, 2011 - 20:16
Whoa. Good info. I now feel lucky to have a job that has me moving almost all day. My problem is, when I get home I don't have much energy to do a real workout. I guess housework will have to do!posted @ Wednesday, May 11, 2011 - 17:37

Dude...police pull people over and wait at these check points because people are driving recklessly. If you aren't driving like a d-bag, or doing anything wrong then you have nothing to worry about. Paranoid much?posted @ Wednesday, April 20, 2011 - 19:49
Yes, why aren't they charging these people? There is so much that is frustrating and angering about this situation!posted @ Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 08:44
Hey oltndr, I ate there last week. I had a couple of sushi rolls and my friend had steak from the hibachi. We both found the food pretty tasty. The sushi rolls range from about 4 bucks to 15 bucks. The hibachi steak was around 17 dollars I think, and she had plenty of leftovers. I would recommend it!
Also, the interior is really nice, and they were playing The Shins overhead which is a win in my bookposted @ Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 09:26

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
