I hope you all aren't bringing up the adults crossing the highway illegally because it is a SouthernAg vehicle. We all know SouthernAg is owned and operated by a prominent local businessman. I don't even think he would approve of you all making those comments. I really hope you think before you speak. Never ever forget; you have a maker to stand before one day. You think He's going to approve of these insensitive comments? Lives were lost- bottom line! Would you be saying the same thing if it were your loved ones? Were you all saying the same thing when the cyclists was killed on 82 in Terrell County? Let's not judge EVERYTHING from a socioeconomic standpoint. Do you actually think he would rather have the money or his child? I've seen people that aren't struggling for money or accepting handouts sue for loss of life. Look at all the facts before you rush to judge.

Of course he is the only D1 player. He is the only player allowed to score points. That's not what we are discussing. Number 11 is a junior. Number 24 is a sophomore. Let's give these players more attempts to perform so they can make it to a D1 school. The other seniors rode the bench their whole high school career. At Westover, when Cromer was benched for two games, Coach Smith said it was for "undisclosed reasons." He and Boston have won championships! They understand that dirty laundry is not to be aired in the news... Oh yeah, by the way, Dontonio Wingfield (former NBA player) was one of the greatest high school players in the state of Georgia.When he was not allowed to play at the championship game, Westover's team stepped up and WON the championship. Many observers thought they couldn't make it without him. (You think the Westover fans were brainwashed like the rest of you to think they couldn't make it either?)

Congrats, Monroe! You had a great regular season... The coaches comments in reference to Jabari McGhee seem a bit biased.... I have watched several teams in Southwest Georgia play, including Monroe and I just don't see it. I feel as though Monroe has a well balanced team but the coach isn't utilizing them well. - Number 11 has had several good games. When he seems to start putting up a lot of points, the coach benches him. -Number 24 is a big guy. He is a born hustler, he plays his position well, and he scored points. One game he played, he was benched and he scored the first 8 points of the game. Rule #1 coach: Never take the hot man out of the game! With all of the big guys Monroe has, they CAN win without Jabari. The coach seems to train the rest of the team around Jabari. If his game is a little off, everyone else has to pay. Jabari is a good player but everyone else plays their positions well. He can't get on that floor and win by himself. Jabari said it well when he gave the other team members credit on the win. It takes them ALL working together to win. A good team is only as strong as its weakest link and they are all pretty strong. Ask Michael Jordan; the Bulls team started winning championships when Bill Cartwright, Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, John Paxson, Craig Hodges and many more put up points to help their team win. Bottom line: the playoffs are the on the way...We want to see these great talents (Monroe Tornadoes) make it far!

squawkee 1 year, 6 months ago on Fabrizio: Focus is on TCC, not arrested, angry parent

ALL of you need to get a grip. This student DOES have a father and mother at home. His maternal AND paternal family are BOTH from Lee County and all are upstanding citizens there. I think that he may lied and I think her emotions got the best of her and things got out of hand. I read somewhere where the squawker said that Albany is where this type of behavior goes on. You're wrong; it happens everywhere! I don't know all of the details but his mother should have used the proper channels to address her child's allegations. Stop making this about Obama and the election. Please don't forget, we ALL have to stand and be judged one day. You think God's going to be proud of the hate that you all (including myself at times) spew? Think before you type.

I swear this is the most racist town I have ever lived in... Half of you guys are sitting here hiding behind your computer spewing hate. You would never say these things to these people's faces! I bet most of you go to church and pretend to be the most upright Christians in the community! I would love to be able to put a face with these statements. Do you actually think that God would be proud of the things you say? By the way, I am a white, taxpaying citizen and have never been as ashamed of my race as I have been since I moved here. I understand that people act and behave differently than you do but, count some of it to them not knowing any better. So what do we do? We get on out "high horse" and make fun of the less than and the ignorant. If you found out today that your life will end in the next few days or months, do you actually think you would still be saying these things?

To the squawker that doesn't like the renditions with "soul" in them, why do you care? Simply change your station or leave that store. 99% of the renditions everyone hears are the so-called "classic" versions! Everyone's voice does not sound the same and everyone was not raised singing out of their nose!
