Can't wait. Such a talented singer and songwriter.
This post is largely grammatically incorrect and difficult to understand. Clearly no one got involved to make his/her school better. By the way, we know that all students who attend Alcovy are not thugs. Those are the students these posters are fighting for. Decent students have the right to an education that is free of threat and intimidation. They should be able to walk the grounds of the school without worrying about what a thug may say or do to them. The administration has a duty to ensure the safety of its students. Clean up the school. Get strong on consequences for criminal behavior and support the teachers!
Reminds me of ten year olds drawing lines in a sandbox. Then daring each other to cross the line. Very mature.
Ignorant, lazy, or both?
Posting a comment on a news story blog is not the same as taking out a legal service by publication ad. I followed the Citizen's links and it is not there. Classifieds>Legal Ad>Service by Publication.
Due diligence by the plantiff's attorney is astonishingly missing in this case. A comment blog is hardly legal notification.
I didn't say anything about property taxes going to extracurricular activities. I'm referring to the 60% of a property tax bill that goes to the education of our children. I used the word donation loosely. What I should have said is money that is taken from each and every property owner in the county annually. My concern is that the school system has an obligation to the citizens to assure the opportunity for success and safety of the students. For that to happen strong leadership needs to be in place.
I believe that is the plan. However, I would not want to be a student, in a school where safety is a concern, hoping that in November things will get better. Every day must feel like a lifetime to them.
The property owners who pay taxes on their Newton County properties are the bosses. So therefore, many on this blog feel they are going to the top when they let the property owners know what is, or is not, being done with the money they donate to the schools each year. It appears that many of these bloggers feel they are being ignored when they go to the superintendent with their concerns. As a result, they have taken their message to the people.
I personally have no way of knowing whether or not all the accusations are true. However, the fact that the Carpenters are married, and that he is the Operations director is very concerning. This alone creates an environment of mistrust and suspicion. In addition, the safety and success of the students in the school should be the top priority for all involved in this situation. I have seen very little response from the superintendent's office in regards to improving these very serious situations. I have to ask myself, "Why is that?"
"I don't understand why we're fighting the inevitable," she said. "There's no need to come back if we get the evidence today."
This is code for, "I'm too lazy to do my due diligence." In my opinion, this is a very concerning sample of work ethic for a judicial candidate.
First of all, I want to preface what I am about to say by telling you that I believe in the Constitutional right to free speech. I believe that it should be protected and respected. Please consider carefully what I am about to say. First, those of you who are involved in this suit would be wise to retain the services of an attorney. Next, you should work together to pool your resources and gather your evidence. Finally, you need to do all of this quietly. Every time you write a comment in the paper, you are giving the plaintiff's attorney information that she will likely work diligently to use against you, find an explanation for, or cover up. In addition, you are hurting your credibility when you make (understandably) emotional responses to their offensive tactics.
I hope that you will find what you are looking for. Our children need teachers and parents who are willing to risk what you are risking to ensure they have a safe and effective learning environment.
