This is an excellent idea - kudos to the ASU Marketing Club for coming up with such a great idea for one of our local businesses. While this is an awesome thing to do for this business today, what they really need is ongoing regular business. Hopefully, the people from ASU will continue to support this business and others. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to go downtown to eat lunch. I don't have enough time on a 30-minute lunch break and am too far away.
A few years ago, I would have said a definite no. However, with the way things are going these days, I have to say maybe it's not such a bad idea. I don't think every person should be armed but there should be a few on site who are knowledgeable about guns & know how to correctly use one should the need arise. I do not own a gun but like the idea that there are people around me who are armed if there is a serious threat to myself or others.
Once again you have managed to insult me, Mr. Fletcher. In a previous editorial you stated something to the effect of it being sad that most white people in Albany saw only color (implying you didn't) & now you are stating again that you seem to be the only white person in Albany who looks at a person's character and not their skin color. It must be nice to be the only perfect person in town (said very sarcastically).
I think this is a good idea. It seems they are trying to avoid losing money to other school districts. All schools in Dougherty County should be modeled after the charter system. However, it will never float because there are too many "parents" who send their kids to school as a free babysitting service. And I use the term parents loosely in this regard.
Thank you, Col. Davis, for your service to our country. I feel a lot safer knowing there are people like you looking out for the rest of us!
Very interesting! Thank you for your service to our country!
Dr. Inyang was principal at Merry Acres when my son attended. He was a great principal, ran a tight ship & did his best to keep everyone on the right track.
This is a prime example that there is a good education to be had in DCSS. Yes, the school system has it's problems at the adminstrative level, but there are many good teachers in our local school system. The key is that students & parents have to be invested in their child's education. There are too many people here who don't understand that concept. They want to blame the teachers & throw more money at the school system. What they need to do is take advantage of what is already offered - it's really a simple concept. A great big congratulations to MAMS Mathcounts team!!
A citwide strategic plan to stop the brain drain of our community's children??? How about stopping children from having children? How about people taking advantage of what is currently available in education? Two of my children have graduated from DCSS & one is currently attending. My children have all received a very good education - there is absolutely no reason why all the kids in this town can't also receive a good education. The problem is not with the system we have; the problem is with the people in this town who have a gimmee-gimmee attitude. They want everything handed to them on a silver platter & want to blame someone else when things don't go their way. It is so frustrating to listen to the complaints of some of these people.
Actually, this is a very good idea. I think a combination of the paying them for not having children & not rewarding them for having children would be great. There are many single people who need help & can't get it because they don't have any children at home. They are just as deserving of help as someone with a child.
