Baker, Meadors, Turner, Johnson, Coggin and Mathews all defendants. I hope they treat them like they all treated Meadors when he did nothing wrong and they acted ugly to him for doing his job. Maybe the Conyers attorney should put him on the stand and he can turn on the system for payback - ha! I would love it!

What a great feel good story and what wonderful students and congrats on your work at Emory. As a public school system employee I would like to see more students getting the cut scores to get into this program. There are a large number of students who would flourish in dual enrollment but can't get the test scores to get in to the program so they sit bored in high school. They do not want to do AP classes and want to get to the college campus nearby. We need to get the school system behind doing something like after school programs to help our students in the 9th and 10th grade prepare for ACT and SAT so they have the dual program as a real option. I have done my checking on the facts and graduation rate data and it is the truth that these kids do better in high school and college.

I doubt the Newton school board gives a crap about who is leaving. They just hired two family members of one board member since May so I think that tells us all we need to know.

That is a total lie they put in a whole section in a citizen poll when someone was mad at him for standing up for charter schools and I agree with him on that they are needed especially in this state. I think just because he and Douglas don't like the Alcovy artwork you need to pick and needle.

A Godless thing I say if true. Why would they stop suddenly saying the prayers by the members one day after the Alcovy High artwork controversy. Why has no paper person dug in this and found out and told us why?

The only thing Hollywood about Covington is the increasing crime the trash in the streets and the abandoned sections of the main drag that look like crap. I sure hope this sign with lights doesn't trash us up even more as if the elected politicians in town don't provide enough reason for no one to want to come here. I think Marietta square has more movies than we do. I'm so sick of hearing about the movie industry in town where are the real jobs not fast food and dollar stores. This Hollywood crap is a pipe dream and who are you graduating from a third rate maybe 4th school system to work in these jobs.

Based on his Covington News columns he supports tax increases so I won't support him.
