[quote][b]scarborj[/b] - The early education program, or PRE-K is the biggest ripoff there is for taxpayers...there is no data or statistics that prove this program is helpful to any kid educationally. It's simply a babysitting service.

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 - 12:28
This is absolutely disgusting. You're right on @Disbott3000.posted @ Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 13:34

@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 - 14:13
What are these activists doing to help solve the poverty problem in ACC?posted @ Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 12:15
[quote][b]Nailitdebo[/b] - It all starts in the home. Anyway, what about 2006 thru 2011? This study was from 2005.

[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 - 17:21
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 - 19:16
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 - 16:37

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.

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
