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'.

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!

Great! Still doesn't leave the fact that he endangered students..But, hey, he resigned! Let thatRead More be a lesson to any other bus driver who feels the need to be drunk at 8 in the morning! Parents --- do not stand for this or tolerate this!! You must demand answers from the school on how they will avoid this in the future!!! Unacceptable Cobb County!!

The term "Charter School" is intentionally confusing. Is it a county supported CharterRead More school like Walton? Is it a city supported school system like Marietta? Is it a "For profit Charter School" approved and funded by the state after providing large campaign contributions? It sounds like the "For profit" variety. Why are they so bashful about saying who they are?

They might want to talk to the veteran teachers who have an education degrees for college. I ranRead More across animosity from 5 teachers who felt the reason Georgia students are so low is because of programs like this. The only problem was Georgia education system was already down in the bottom before these programs were instituted. Talk about shifting the blame.

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.
