[quote][b]E.J.[/b] - Sometimes it's best to try to handle such an issue just between the two boys. The father, or more effectively, the mother could advise the son how to simply confront the other kid with clear communication that he felt accosted and that the other boy should steer clear of him from then on. If it happens again, then maybe bring in the authorities, but this is little different from what girls and women have to put up with from boys and men all the time. Male advances can be not only annoying, but scary for women. We handle it; guys should learn to deal with it as well. Now a real assault would be another story.
Wow, what screwed up logic. Someone feels they've been sexually assaulted and your advice is to accept it because it was guy on guy? So when does it become a REAL assault in your double standard world?posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 08:49

Your rhetoric leaves a lot to be desired, and there are absolutely no figures on gun control beliefs among criminals.
Your statement is sensationalist, impossible to confirm, and irrelevant.
I have a suggestion for you. Take a clipboard and go hang out for a few days at Bethel, Pauldoe, and Stonehenge and conduct the same poll and report back to us your findings. If we don't hear from you in three days I will personally notify the police that you are in need of assistance.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 08:56

In 2004 the elections for mayor and the commissioners were made non-partisan, so there were no party labels. Denson was backed by most business interests and conservatives, while O'Looney was favored by social activists and progressives.

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
