Columbia County authorities cited eight teens for underage drinking Tuesday at a house party in Evans.

Deputies arrived at a home in the 300 block of Barnsley Drive at about 12:30 a.m. in reference to a loud party and saw several people standing outside, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

They were all underage and had been drinking alcohol.

The homeowner walked outside and asked for assistance in getting the other underage drinkers out of his home.

Those cited for minor in possession of alcohol are: Joseph Nye, 17; Kathleen Tatika Acs, 18; Nathan Reid Lee, 17; Aaron Loy Day, 19; Brandon Daniel Gregoire, 19; Shuntae Hodges, 19; and Paige Alison Jarrard, 18.

A juvenile complaint was issued on a 16-year-old boy, who was released to his mother.

My parents allowed us to

My parents allowed us to drink small amounts of wine or beer in the home, but only at family dinners, only on major holidays, only after age 16, and the adults in my family also modeled responsible (moderate) drinking. It removed the notion of alcohol being a novelty item to be binged on at friends parties or on one's 21st birthday, or worse, at college parties as a minor.

Gotta love that mentality of "prohibition" and puritanism, otherwise you are "anti-capitalist" and even perhaps pagan and heathen....

Parents allowing kids to drink

Stercus, I see your point even if we may disagree. I do believe to an extent parents may make decisions for their kids at a decent age, etc. such as yours did with no problem or repercussions. At the same time many parents today prefer to be their child’s friend vs. their parent. Since basically nothing good comes from consuming alcohol and all studies indicate it is not good to consume, especially for youth in their developing stages of life, I see no reason for a parent to condone it.

Either way, a parent may have the right to allow THEIR CHILD to drink in THEIR HOME but has absolutely no right to allow their child’s friends or others under age to drink in their home as many parents do.

Welcome to 2012

Why is this front page news on the Augusta Chronicle? Is underage drinking by suburban youth worth the space?

It amazes me that people who make lots of money selling alcohol to adults would have an opinion about the consumption of alcohol & it's negative effects on someones health.

In this context, yes.

"Why is this front page news on the Augusta Chronicle? Is underage drinking by suburban youth worth the space?"

I'm a resident of ColCo and like it here, but critics who claim ColCo gets a pass sometimes on coverage of misbehavior are right. I'm glad to see some of our "holier than thou" get exposed.

Schooling

They published this story as a public service to teenagers, i.e., you can drink alcohol, but if you want to avoid being arrested, you need to be quiet! It is the loud parties the neighbors don't like. They don't care whether you drink as long as you don't keep them awake.

I don't know how many teenagers will be capable of reading between the lines and getting the public service announcement.

Or better yet who does he/she know! Come on CCNT, get to the bottom of this BS.

old enough to go to kindergarten, you're old enough to get a driver's license and drink. Don't infringe upon a person's right to " life, liberty and pursuit to personal happiness" even if it kills some innocent person or animal. Just ask most college instructors, professors and attorneys.
