Nothing personal directed at anyone, but I did notice a hugh shift downward in the Title 1 numbers for Terrell a few years ago when the State was looking really hard at those numbers. I have to wonder if this isn't some gamesmanship? Where do these folks place on the Vo-Tech testing for remedial classes? Never mind the college level? Now I don't daily deal with these students, but I have interviewed some for jobs in the past. Sometimes I wonder what a High School diploma really represents these days.

Any dog ordanance should address all dogs, not just selected breeds. In my life I have seen the results of inbreeding (Puppy Mills). They resulted in the spat of Doberman's attacking people, then the Saint Bernards. When they first became popular, and weren't bred down, Rootweilers were very dangerous to any strangers. As to so called Pit Bulls. For the most part they are part Terrier, a dog strongly bred with the desire to chase and kill. German Shepards had their run at being considered super vicious. Growing up we considered a German Shepard, Collie cross the most dngerous as far as killing Deer, sheep, ducks and chickens. Proportionally they probably represented 2/3 of the dogs that were destroyed in the act. So how can you single out a single breed? If one owner has to take these precautions, then all dog owners should have to follow the same route. Kind of like the minimal insurance required on a car, have a minimal on the Dog. The insurance companies will be glad to sort out the specific costs per breed. So for once I believe Tommy Postel is correct. As to visious Poodles, I can't even remember the number my Mother-inlaw's ankle biters lit into. All with the potential of injury and disease. Now, I have an Austraklian Shepard. She is secured, spayed, and has her own fenced yard to play in. There are appropriate signs and warnings posted. Plus my Homeowner's insurance covers her. Why shouldn't every other dog owner be required to do the same
When you have several Million is settlement money, you get to direct your interests elsewhere. You live on your Lee County Plantation and tell the poor fplks in Baker how they are being treated in unfair. If she really wanted to help, she would have given that settlement money to assist the Citizens of Baker County, especially the minority Farmers that are still there.
Sometimes it is best to bite the Bullet and get it done with. The longer it is delayed, the more eligability those scheduled for removal build up in a retirement and benefits system that is already over burdened, and a cause of the high costs forcing these shutdowns. Yes, I feel for the people, but I am pragmatic enough to reconnize stalling tactics, and the reason behind them.
Providing them any form of recognition, just is encouragement. I like it because the style prevents the easy concealment of a weapon.
Not if she is dead. The Judge by Taurus is the best answer for one of these PETs. Kept in an apron pocket it is very formidiable against all threats. Remember the elderly Lady when the yellow python was on the loose? She made no bones about what would happen if it showed up around her Grandchildren or small dogs. City ordenance or not.
Well, some folks might just like to know others care about them. If you want to send something worthwhile, send money to the local Salvation Army and allow them to use it as they see fit. They maybe difficult to reach currently, but I am certain the National will direct the funds accordingly. At least none of the contributions will go so some CEO's inflated salary and benefits. The Salvation Army provides the best actual aid with the funds provided. They can purchase what is needed at a discount in most cases, and don't have to worry about shipping and storage of items.
Look, it is South-west Georgia. The hats indoors is something I don't like, but have learned to tolerate. Plus there isn't much wrong with a good pickup. We cannot live in our perspective of the world, we simply have to accept the perspective of others. Maybe they are Jewish and don't have a Yamika (Boy did I probably spell that wrong) I believe if they knew we were looking upon them as following Jewish custom, they might stop wearing the hats indoors. It is done as an attention getter, or attention diverter. Kind of depends about how you feel about your hair, or in some cases lack thereof. I also hear the hats when treated correctly will stop Lice, an all to previlant problem in South-west Georgia.
For what it is worth, I bought $20 worth of quick picks in both Lotterys this weekend. A young Lady in front of me got $50 worth of the Power Ball tickets. When I checked out with my Groceries, I paid with my Debit Card. She paid with a State EBT Card. Am I the only one noticing this type of thing, and believing it to be wrong? Then I hear the commercial that many Children go to bed hungry in America and have really got to wonder.
Why shouldn't everyone utilizing services pay for them? All a part of doing business. Around here, most Churches are just that, a business for the profit of the Preacher and their friends. Not very many actually utilize their funds for the Lord's work, they use them to build Temples of Worship. Complete with statues and such.
