Authorities still seeking suspects in Athens nightclub shooting

Nothing good comes out of a late night drinking club. That nightclub should be sued by the victims for not having security outside. Hope they at least had cameras. Someone at least should have had a camera phone.

Jury deliberations might start today in Donnan trial

Wow, what a greedy family. Hope the judge sees through his smoke and mirrors defense lawyer, and sends this "dumb salesman" away for a long time.

Georgia judge awards $200,000 in false mammogram suits

Absolutely shocking to know how lazy this person is. I was in Perry last weekend, and a friend told me all about this case. The judge was more than lenient to the defendant in my humble opinion.

Police: Georgia teen abducted from home found alive

I'm sorry, but how do these upstanding, decent parents who can't find a good job and have to resort to dealing drugs to make ends meet believe the thugs they are doing business with will be fair and equitable when it all goes south.

Big pet tortoise lost somewhere in Carlton

We have two Spur Thighs. A male and a female. One is about 5 lbs, and the other 3 lbs. They dig into the ground, and hide. The holes they dig can get very deep, and they can be missed by owners looking for them. They also like to hide behind trees, or brush which makes them almost invisible. Once I searched for two hours in my backyard for one and I kept missing her because she looked just like the bark on the tree she was hiding behind. Talk about camoflage. The African Spur Thigh is the third largest tortoise in the world.

Who will be affected by health reform enrollment in October?

Why won't Obama grow a pair, and get rid of the middlemen who caused the problem in the first place..."Health Insurance.... it is and always has been a government sanctified protection racket" AKA The Healthcare Mafia. Would this country really fall apart if we took them out of the picture, and just did the Fee for Service privately with our practitioners? I believe with competition healthcare prices would become transparent for the first time ever for the patient, and costs would quickly stabilize .

William, Kate, show off newborn royal baby boy

They are such a cute and seemingly normal royal couple. I am very happy for them, and although I am not living in the UK anymore (due to marrying my US penpal 34 years ago) I do believe that I am proud to be British right now.

Meth lab supplies found at business

@ljusticebazemore: Liz, saving strays, and throw-aways in a no kill shelter IS A GOOD thing. I can't think of a better cause, and I admire your spirit, and your passion for what you are doing every day. I know it's not easy. The work is hard, backbreaking, dirty, and sometimes heartbreaking, but when something as controversial as a Meth Lab shows up in your inventory it will open up some ugly doors, and bite you harder than a pitbull. My advice as a former business owner would be to let the police deal with it, and just concentrate on what you do best....Loving those dogs.

Meth lab supplies found at business

I just listened to the manager of Petzone, on the local Athens, talk radio, attempt to explain the Meth incident, and she more or less told Tim Bryant that we are all idiots on here. She sounded angry that we have an opinion on how her business is perceived by the locals. She needs to understand that you can catch more fly's with honey than with vinegar..... I just can't support people who feel they are entitled no matter what, when they address the community in such a manner.

Meth lab supplies found at business

@nowheregirl: I had a ton of the same message in my mailbox too...Someone got crazy with the Post Button...LOL. But, on another note. Maybe, it would be a good thing for a few of us with a little spare time on our hands to give a couple of hours a week helping this non profit clear out their storage rooms, and organize the place. Or maybe a small donation. Every little bit helps, and it's for a good cause. I do think they are trying to make this pet rescue work.

However, the multiple poster, LizJustice-Bazemore, sounds like a loud, ugly, nasty piece of work, and if she works for Petzone is not helping their cause. She should be fired for spamming the good folks on here.

Meth lab supplies found at business

@Connie Ruales: I called the GA Dept of Agriculture, and spoke with a woman who stated that they don't come out to check on animal/rescue facilities unnannounced as they do not have the staff. All that is required is a yearly licensing renewal fee that must be submitted in a timely manner or it will be cancelled. She said that they only inspect new applications, or "complaints", and do so with an appointment to the owner.

Meth lab supplies found at business

I don't know who owns this place, but I made the mistake of going in there to bathe my dog once. It was disgusting. I was totally put off by the employees who were rude, and indifferent to customers, and I felt very sorry for the rescues in their care. It was freezing cold, so the dogs had to be in a sad way, and I was shocked that the place was in such a mess. I thought it should be inspected by the county, as they needed to see the condition this place was in. It is NOT a decent pet facility by any means and should be checked out.

Peeping Tom indicted for making videos of Athens college students

Blinds, curtains, shades, black out drapes, shutters, sheets, or even newspaper taped to the window will stop prying eyes or cameras. Just sayin.

Detroit emergency manager files bankruptcy

Never mind that Jenny Granholm, one of Obama's convention screamers was governor of Michigan for eight of the years of "corruption as usual". She fled Michigan the moment she left office never to be heard from again. The current governor has been left with cleaning up the Dems spending model which allowed the politicians to kick the can down the road waiting for the bacon to come in from the feds. This once great city should be a wake up call for us all.

Girl, 5, severely hurt in attack by family dog

Three dogs attacked the child, but the Pit was the main aggressor. The others went into pack mentality and joined in. The child lost an ear according to the grandmother. Such a terrifying trauma for this child when a simple 10x10 pen with a lock could have prevented this incident.

    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
