“First of all, we had a young bunch, a lot of inexperience on that side of the ball,” Richt said. “The experience that everybody went through is positive. Everybody’s got to improve, everybody’s got to improve all the way around. There’s a lot of areas that we all need to improve on. We’ve got the right group of guys and we’ve got the right staff. We’ve got to make sure that we take care of business as far as improving, maturing and keeping that continuity.”

I never could understand why OCHS felt like they had to go all the way to Southern California to hire a head football coach. As crazy8golfer pointed out, it's for the best.
On the other hand, Larry Milligan at Oglethorpe County put himself in a no-win situtation. Milligan knows how to coach a winning football team. He just needs the support of a booster club that has a little money, and a decent football talent pool to coach, both of which exist at Oconee County HS. It would be like a homecoming for Milligan. He's lived in OC for years.posted @ Monday, November 11, 2013 - 20:25
[quote][b]Retired_Soldier[/b] - Medals are not "won," they are awarded. I'm not sure where the term "winner" came from when referring to an individual being awarded a medal, but medals are awarded based on an individual's actions.
Good point. However, the use of the term "winner" was in keeping with the honor of the medal, I'm sure.posted @ Saturday, November 9, 2013 - 04:57

[quote][b]kayson[/b] - @Yellow Dog: What a ridiculous list of home grown terrorists. None on your list are foreign al Qaeda terrorists. You know, like the terrorists who attacked America on 9/11. Bet you that almost every administration has a similar list of acts of individual and uncoordinated terroristic attacks by home grown criminals. Your attempt at denigrating Obama says more about you than him.
You inferred that there have been no terrorist attacks in the US since 2008. So, only those claimed by Al Queda qualify, huh? For a real debate, both sides must be honest.posted @ Sunday, September 22, 2013 - 23:25
[quote][b]kayson[/b] - @42roadmut: Have al Qaeda been able to mount a successful attack on American soil since 2008? Is America the world's policeman? Are we responsible for protecting every mall in the world? How ridiculous!

That area all around Ossabaw Sound & Ossabaw Island can be very tricky at low tide, especially for a blow ship. Shifting sand bars beneath the water make the trip from Skidaway Is. to Ossabaw Is. an adventure for any boat. I've helped pull several sail boats off the bottom in that area.

And once again, I'm absolutely aghast at the rank insensitivity of a number of the Athens Banner-Herald's online commenters. In a story on the ruling of a young woman's death as a suicide, where the only appropriate response is to express sadness at the loss, or condolences to family and friends, a number of commenters took it upon themselves -- based on what I'm SURE is their vast knowledge of police procedure -- to suggest that there might be something more to the story. read more
