I had met Capt. Herb Emory many times doing what he did often: giving of himself and his time to aRead More lot of community activities. I also had the pleasure of meeting his lovely wife, Karen, when they were both at the Arbor Place Mall for Olympic medalist, Elana Myers' most recent celebration. My prayers and condolences go out to her and the Emory family and friends, as I, too, try to get past the shock of his passing. Heaven gained what we have lost: a really sweet man with a wonderful sense of humor, who got many of us through the driving commutes, and helped so many people through the numerous charities that he participated in for several decades. We will miss Capt. Herb every single day for a very, very long time.

Very sorry for the families loss. Ms Radloff has helped me in many ways throughout the years. SheRead More helped me with my children when the school officials would not. I will always be grateful to her.

For 10 years Herb picked up litter (through the Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful Adopt A Road program)Read More along Jay Bird Alley four times a year by himself. He was a loyal, humble community servant. Now it will take a whole subdivision to replace him

Thank you for such a sensitive, respectful and compassionate follow up to the initial story. WishRead More more of 'the media" would do so, after seeing this wonderful example.
Judy Putnam (Editor) September 4, 2012 at 05:09 pm
Thank you for your kind words Susan.
Mike Smith July 8, 2012 at 06:34 pm
Ed, I understand your point but you missed my point. He changed the value of the example home.Read More .85mil on a $300K home is going to be higher then .85mil on a $250K home.
Ed Stiles July 8, 2012 at 07:01 pm
Yes, I missed that.... Remember, you are dealing with an accounting professional, a CPA. They areRead More capable of manipulating numbers as needed to meet their needs :) Too bad they didn't look at the Carl Vinson Report numbers and compare them with a real city, or maybe they did and decided the numbers didn't meet their political needs......
Judy Putnam (Editor) July 8, 2012 at 07:15 pm
Mr. Styles and Mr. Smith: Please allow me to set the record straight regarding the example on theRead More home values. I chose to use $250,000 as an average home value in writing the story. I was not quoting the mayor.

What a touching piece on James Scarbrough. I was shocked to hear the news. I had met him on manyRead More occasion, he was witty and loved to tell jokes. He had so many friends, he will be greatly missed.

I was never into college football even after all these years in the Southeast, but I always lookedRead More forward to Larry's morning commentary on WSB radio. Many of those essays included movie reviews. It was always fun to hear his take on films. He is a huge legend to many in this region and more importantly to the Athens area, the University of Georgia and its ball club.

There will never be another announcer like Larry Munson. With television taking over, the need forRead More brilliant announcers for radio broadcasts has diminished. Larry was bigger than the game itself when there was no television, and simply was the best at describing what was occurring so vividly you didn't need to be there. More importantly, he was a "large square" on my "quilt of life." I first heard him call the N.C.State game in Athens in 1972 and was forever a Dawg fan after that. Charismatic and brilliant are the only words to describe his skills at announcing, and even his short stint announcing the Atlanta Falcons was memorable (e.g. Dion Sanders calls). I will always remember him and the thrills he brought to me growing up in Northwest Georgia as a big UGA fan and subsequent student in Athens. My best memory was talking with him at age 20 at Jackson Square in New Orleans prior to the Notre Dame Sugar Bowl game. What a thrill. RIP Larry Munson and thanks for the fond, fond memories.
