Yes, Kristal....thanks for the updates and insight. Much appreciated.

There's a prowler on my front porch. Do I have to call the Chairman of the Cherokee RepublicanRead More Party before I call 911 or can I wait until after?

Is it right to post partial trial testimony while a trial is ongoing? I know jurors are told toRead More avoid media, but Canton is a small town. I'm not sure this is a best practice. Not saying it is illegal, just not the best.

I would want to be briefed by both sides, but from the text, it appears the police are reportingRead More what he said at the time. He could not know in advance whether they were armed or not - since they could have had concealed weapons. Unless he was a trained and experienced gun fighter, once the action started he was acting on pure instinct and terror, as any vet will tell you about their first time in dangerous combat. The episode was unfortunate indeed, but unless I'm missing something here, there is no homicide case due to age and circumstances.

Dave, I would be fearful of knocking on your door or even approaching you for directions.

Dave, Fort Hood is a military base. The good guys in the military use...wait for it...guns.Read More According to your claim, if the good guys had guns, which they in fact did, the outcome would have been different? Please explain how. I agree firearms should be kept in safes. Too often in the headlines are stories of some sibling accidentally shot their sister, some family member shoots another during a domestic dispute, a car gets broken into and firearms are stolen, the list goes on and on. Note that in my post, I said people with guns are dangerous. Guns themselves obviously need human intervention to operate, thus the deadly combination. Just like a cigarette only causes cancer when smoked. This nation would benefit greatly from focusing on getting firearms out of the hands of criminals and those that misuse them, as they belong only within the care of those that are properly trained and enforcers of the law.

What kind of a stupid, malicious idiot would pull that sort of a prank? I agree that the kid whoRead More made the phone call to the SWAT team about his opposing video games player was a sore loser, which is why he did that, but he should be criminally prosecuted, made to pay the bill, and perhaps do some community service in order to pay off that big bill. Hopefully, that kid will learn a lesson if he is prosecuted for his prank, which he should be.

Well, I guess since the board said that she spent 10k of the tax payers money, then it's has to beRead More true. Again, why are we focusing on Yankee Marlow. Here a thought for ya.....UGA loses 2 football games and people are ready to behead Mark Richt, but we're Ok with 78% graduation rate. At some point you have to ask...."are our priorities a little jacked up?" Maybe you will better understand if I use a quote from forrest gump "He must be the stupidest son of a bitch alive, but he sure is fast"
Mealy Man April 23, 2014 at 10:51 pm
Bye, nellybelly. I hope that NY has better success overcoming the challenges that your child facesRead More by being raised by someone with such a propensity for the run-on sentence. Chad, I find the parallels that you draw between Benghazi, Richt, Forrest Gump, Jihad, and Dr. P to be fascinating. Tell me more. You sound very sane.
Aww Now April 24, 2014 at 01:03 am
Can we go back to the original comment that was false, misleading at best. The part where Why wouldRead More we question a board ... 71% graduation rate." But then we called on it, no admission, or mistake ownership, just rhetoric. Ms Marlow may have had some good ideas, initially. I suppose that's why people originally supported her. But she quickly lost her way. It's not the system's fault how she conducted herself. It is her's alone. I'm not going to attack her personally. She has family & close friends that might read these sorts of posts. Varying opinions, with respect, can often lead to great progress. Unfortunately, that was not the path she enacted. Professionally and personally, her's is a sad tale.

Gay marriage should not be allowed. There are other states that allow it move there.

Why do we care about this?
nybelleinga April 23, 2014 at 01:41 pm
I have children at CCA and we have had a generally positive experience there. I believe that thereRead More is much more opportunity for idea exchange and collaboration than other elementary schools locally provide. The kids are generally encouraged and able to discuss their ideas and problem solve in the classroom more than we had experienced at another local elementary school. Why the hate towards CCA? I really don't understand it.
kevinowhite April 23, 2014 at 11:02 pm
Malcolm may be on to something about Marlow having valid points...as she is pulling her kids out ofRead More CCA. So, nybelleinga, maybe you should ask Marlow herself about "all the hate" towards CCA.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
Susan Harris April 23, 2014 at 10:12 pm
Tamara, what social studies standards are you talking about? The Common Core only covers standardsRead More in literacy and math. There are no CC standards for science or history. Are you talking about state standards?
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 11:35 pm
Common Core has science and social studies standards - they were written after math and ELA - theyRead More have not been implemented yet. They are more controversial so math and ELA was put thru first to pave the way.
Tamara April 24, 2014 at 12:18 am
Many articles on CC not being validated, and reducing standards and achievement - not the other wayRead More around... http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?ca=7bf08782-fe34-49d9-ba23-f95e21905f04&c=d6f00600-ac37-11e3-8bb0-d4ae528ed502&ch=d7b7c2d0-ac37-11e3-8bc0-d4ae528ed502

Netflix is hands down the best deal going, and it has been a bargain for YEARS. I guess theRead More nonsensical whiners who complain about a long-delayed, $2 a MONTH increase are worried it will cost them a (partial) SINGLE LATTE. Utterly ridiculous.

TO MICHAEL BRENNICK: Leftist, Democra... WHAT? You think Comcast is part of the so-calledRead More "liberal" media (which, by the way, doesn't even exist)? Are you freakin' KIDDIN' me? [shakes head in disbelief] Wow. The FOX NEWS CHANNEL should be held criminally liable for what it has done to your brain.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!
