Some days no matter what one tries, things don't always go the way one had planned. Just ask theRead More Archbishop.

'flame retardant'? Some stupid liberal will probably try to change that to 'flame handicapped'.
wmsmom April 13, 2014 at 09:15 pm
No, the name doesn't need to change when it's used in the proper context. Your thoughts areRead More handicapped though, if that helps?

Now if Georgia can get some jobs for these grads. Only 2 companies in the last engineering job fairRead More were from Georgia. Sad we send our best out of state!

Yeah GT!

Not all Tech grads can stay here in Georgia.We are spread across the world! Another result of theirRead More enrollment policy and the needs of the world! When you are one of the best, non Georgians want you. When I was looking for a job , I had a few out of state firms state that they would like to add a GT grad to their staff. Cross "pollination" I guess!

Mary - nah, let's reward the parents for teaching the kids the important skills of lying andRead More cheating. Rules shouldn't apply to good football players - amiright?

It was our experience over some years that administrators in DeKalb County Schools don't even knowRead More the contents of the code. So good luck with that.

Adding three days to the end of the year is pointless. Nothing will be accomplished. And I canRead More guarantee that teachers are not planning for the next year on those last couple of days of post planning. They are trying to recover from an arduous year of teaching.
Cheryl Miller March 1, 2014 at 09:43 am
Maybe adding to the end of the year WOULD have been pointless except for the fact that he also movedRead More the CRCT test to allow for additional learning to take place before testing. That was a good move. As for the teachers not utilizing the planning days, I hope you are mistaken. I have heard many complaints about the teachers needing days for planning and I'm glad to see Super. Thurmond is being responsive to their requests. Baby steps. But we are moving in the right direction.

Want happened to the person who used to be the editor of PATCH? A Ms. Murchison (Spelling?), IRead More believe. Just curious as I thought she was a good editor.

***** They need to contact :Navy Personnel Command (PERSCOM) out of Millington, TN. His obituary:Read More Harrison is survived by his two sons; Robert and Richard; and his four grandsons; Matthew, Michael, Daniel and David. The family, according to Ancestry.com's 1930 census is from Jefferson, Alabama.

I live in Kennesaw and have two owls living in my woods. They dont like it when I even try to getRead More pics, I can only imagine how terrified the owl "mascot" must be. Dress someone in a mascot costume and quit using Gods beautiful animals as a sick way to entertain people. Phyllis, u just have to ignore those hateful responses, some people are just ignorant.
Kirsten February 26, 2014 at 11:06 pm
Exactly--interesting, Patch, how your "sampling" of comments used in the article seemsRead More decidely one-sided.
Pam Mossack Doughty February 27, 2014 at 12:59 am
PETA actually DID try to get UGA to eliminate UGA and use a robotic dog. Not thinking that willRead More happen. Phyllis, so you're saying that we shouldn't have dogs as pets? REALLY? What is your suggestion to do with the abundance of dogs in the world? I am seriously asking you. And PETA has been documented with tossing euthanized dogs that they "rescued" into dumpsters, so PLEASE stop glorifying them.

In the photo, Sturgis has that "Yo, PETA, don't mess with my gig!" look.

Mike Ross , nicely stated! I couldn't agree more!!
David Tiffany March 2, 2014 at 10:04 am
While I agree, generally, with Mike Ross, he goes a bit overboard - just as the PETA people do. TheRead More owl undoubtedly lives better than other members of its species, rather than the other way around. PETA should spend its time and resources trying to protect animals that are truly being treated abusively. Mike should also tone it down. The people at PETA are not evil, but only want the best possible treatment for the animals that share our planet.
