Maine lobstermen catch 2 albino lobsters in week

Really, I'd just as soon have a bright red boiled lobster with lots of drawn butter.

A blip on the way to an excellent season. Suspect the ladies will draw motivation from coming sooo close..

Whatever it takes, ladies, it's exciting to see you responding to all the new challenges of this gymnast year.

Georgia uses season-high score to dispatch Iowa

Awesome display by a team rapidly growing in self-confidence. Should be in the hunt by the spring if gymnasts continue to grow in this fashion.

Jay Clark's return to Athens

Class act. Class guy. A joy to see him return "home". Hope we're always as charitable to people like Jay in the future. Because this will happen again to somebody well-liked by our community.

KISS guitarist Frehley's NY home goes up in flames

Having personally known Frehley back in the 70's, it's not altogether surprising that he might continue to find his life excessively consumed with smoke.

Resentencing delayed for Eve Carson's killer

Give not the slightest bit of compassion or any other form of leniency toward this most despicable person. He clearly knew every inch of the way what he was doing. That he is even still alive is a crime in and of itself.

Gym Dogs shake ghosts of past failures under first-year coach Durante

Let's hear about some of the incoming freshmen and how they'll eventually contribute. We expect more and better next year and there's no reason to suspect that the move back towards #1. C'mon Clarkson. Years-long habit of inconsistent performance? How many years in a row did you think the gymdogs would stay at the top of the heap.?The new coaching staff has done a good job of rebuilding confidence and that road still has distance to be traveled.

Gym Dogs ready to shine again at NCAA championships

This group of young athletic ladies deserves as much praise and encouragement for rebounding this year as does any UGA team. They've have put Georgia gymnastics back near the top where they've been for so many recent years. Get behind them and support them.

Former UGA football coach Donnan pleads not guilty in alleged Ponzi scheme

When I see the FACTS on the Donnan case, that's when I'll start drawing conclusions. And hopefully with something more than sophomoric ramblings. Great time to skewer some ACC members though, no?

About the same time as our current President. In any event, probably not soon enough.

Winder man charged in Athens carjacking

In the springtime a young man's thoughts turn to what a girl's been thinking about all winter. This couple needs better communication patterns.

Gym Dogs earn No. 1 seed in Corvallis Regional

Nice article for those of us who are Gymdogs enthusiasts. If I could attend, however, it would be even nicer to know time and date of event. No?

Is MSNBC almost entirely opinion?

What a stunning development. Not only have the "regulars" shown excessive irregularity, but the parade of nitwits like Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell continue slobbering their wafer thin intelligence to an audience that must be the smallest in TV land. And they're proudly owned by Comcast. Need any more info? Watch 'em some morning and experience the show at it's deepest and finest moments. HeeHaw offered more insight and meaningful coverage of important events.

Gym Dogs close in but fail to catch Tigers

Tough "reunion" for some of the older Gymdogs with Jay Clark as competition, but they continue to work hard to prepare for SECs and NCAAs. A good showing against Utah will be important to season ending cred. You've come a long way ladies-don't let up now.

Athens-Clarke police concerned over DUI crashes with serious injuries

@Ugles: As an alcoholic in recovery(29+ years) I most heartily disagree with your assertion that "Drunk college kids should be the least of our concerns in this country". I assure you many will continue alcohol abuse after leaving school, with little or no understanding of the problems they will create for themselves, their families or for others. I do agree with you that the German solution referred to is also probably not the best route, although every individual will need to develop their own individual program to recover.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    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.
