      How ‘Bout Them Dogs

      How 'Bout Them Dogs

      After the recent death of UGA VII, the animal-rights organization PETA recommended retiring the highly-bred bulldog mascots of the University of Georgia’s football team and substituting robot dogs. I doubt if many fans endorsed the robot idea; dog-loving members of my own household greeted the notion with derision.

      That’s too bad because PETA had another recommendation that makes a lot of sense. The organization suggested the football team adopt future mascots from shelters or humane societies instead of featuring thoroughbred dogs with breathing problems and other unhealthy traits.

      The Word from Athens

      The marquee of the famed Georgia Theatre in Athens usually features the names of well-known bands or bands you never heard of but probably will hear of in the future. The theatre has hosted such famed bands as REM, Widespread Panic, U2 and others who got their start in Georgia’s music city. A few weeks ago, the interior of the Georgia Theatre was gutted by fire, although the exterior is still intact. Now, the marquee simply says “Ouch!”

      Uncovered: the story of a smuggling ring

      As a former employee of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution now living in Athens, I get lots of complaints from locals miffed that the paper no longer circulates here. One friend, whose mother is in a nursing home in Winder, says her mother and other residents of the home are still fuming because they can’t get the AJC. “Mother is a lifelong reader of the newspaper,” my friend said. “So are many of the other elderly people at the nursing home.” Those creative elders, however, have worked out a solution: Several times a week, one or two people from the nursing home drive over to Gwinnett County, in the AJC’s circulation area, buy a stack of papers and bring them back to the nursing home residents. “It’s like they’re smuggling drugs across the border,” my friend said.

      Not 'stuck on stupid'

      Blunt, colorful and competent, Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré charmed America when he helicoptered into New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and hit the ground cussing. Honoré, described as “a John Wayne dude” by New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, got the stalled rescue and recovery effort moving in a hurry, cutting through red tape like Moses parting the Red Sea and warning everybody involved not to get “stuck on stupid.” Now, with excellent help from writer Ron Martz, Honoré has told the Katrina story from his own point of view in “Survival: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save You and Your Family from Disasters,” published by Atria Books Hardcover, a division of Simon and Schuster. Martz is a former long-time writer for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the author of five other ghosted or as-told-to books. In “Survival,” Honoré repeatedly urges government agencies, relief organizations and individuals to get ready for […]

      Following the Trail: Tabby on the S.E. Coast

      Following the Trail: Tabby on the S.E. Coast

      As captivating as the time-worn ruins of Europe, scores of centuries-old buildings and other structures made of a unique oyster shell concrete called tabby mark a meandering trail along the southeastern coast from Charleston, S.C., to St. Augustine, Fla. They are survivors, often the sole survivors, of some of the earliest European settlements in what is today the United States. The old tabbies provide fascinating vignettes of the area’s history and tangible reminders of some of the people involved in the nation’s turbulent founding and growth. The oldest masonry fort in the continental United States was built in the late 1600s of coquina stone and tabby in St. Augustine, the country’s oldest city. Among the fort’s builders were slaves who escaped from British colonies and fled south to Spanish Florida, traveling by way of the nation’s first underground railroad which predated the more famous escape route to the north by […]

      The verdict: Alaimo sets a shining example

      U. S. District Court Judge Anthony A. Alaimo was once described as “tough as woodpecker lips” by a fellow judge. The description was accurate, according to attorneys and others who frequent the federal courtroom in Brunswick, Georgia, where Alaimo now serves as a senior judge. This month, the College of Coastal Georgia in Brunswick honored Judge Alaimo, a resident of Sea Island, for his long service by awarding him an honorary doctoral degree, the first ever presented by the four-year institution. Alaimo also delivered the commencement to the first class to graduate from the college, whose predecessor was a two-year community college. Brunswick attorney Jim Bishop, a regent of the University System of Georgia, introduced Alaimo as a long-time friend who mentored him as a lawyer. “No person has been a stronger voice for our community than the man we honor here tonight,” Bishop said. That strong voice was heard […]

      Children of a tragedy

      Police say Dr. George Zinkhan, a professor at the University of Georgia, shot his wife and two others to death at the Athens Community Theatre Saturday while the couple’s son and daughter, 8 and 10, waited nearby in their father’s maroon Jeep. After the shootings, according to police, Zinkhan drove the children to a neighbor’s house and left them there. When the neighbor asked Zinkhan’s daughter what was going on, the child said something about fireworks. I wonder if that’s what Zinkhan told his children when he returned to the vehicle after the killings. Maybe his daughter just invented that innocent explanation for the sounds she and her brother were close enough to hear. Maybe the girl wanted to believe all those sharp pops were just middle-of-the-day fireworks at the theatre party their mother was attending. But the girl and her brother knew, at least on some level, that something […]
