Welcome to the weblog of the Anonymous Blogger.  Hopefully we will be able to learn and share some things together, things about Athens and Athens-Clarke County.

Now back to the exciting things that are at hand.  It has been roughly or more than a month since the new "progressive" commissioners have been sworn in to office and I am waiting somewhat impatiently for some actual change to take place.

But more on that later.

Back to Athens news.  Today there were some suspicious happenings around town.  First, at 2:54 p.m. the Athens Newspapers reported as "Breaking News" that pesky "Forecasters" had predicted a hazardous weather "alert" for the Athens area.  Yet the National Weather Service, while including "Clarke County" in with some other 40-50 north Georgia counties expecting heavy rainfall, had none of the bright-orange-ish warning flags that typically accompany real hazardous weather conditions expected, such as flash-flooding, etc.  At the present time the NWS is forecasting a 20% chance of rain overnight in the Athens general area.

In other news, it was reported that the University Police Bomb Squad may have traveled to an event (which has not, to my knowledge, so far been reported on in other media) at a south Athens motel, just off south Milledge Avenue and near to what used to be known as Macon Road.  We'll keep our ears and eyes pealed to see if this event gets reported further.

Thus concludes my inaugural blog.  I know it won't please everyone because I know it won't please me five minutes after I post it--however, that is done now.

But if you will, or want to, stay tuned.

And thanks.

I read that a duffle bag of fireworks had been discovered in a room at the Intown Suites on the old Macon Highway south of 5 points. A person on the housekeeping staff found it in an empty room that had recently been rented to two men from the region. The UGA bomb squad was dispatched to the motel and used a remote controlled cart to remove the bag. Does the ACC police department not have a bomb squad? Anyway, the entire motel was evacuated while this removal occurred.
