Massachusetts is the poster child for Universal Healthcare. Everyone loves to point out how well it is working..

The Citizens feel that for the most part it has not worked.

wildcat: new math, new diploma, new salary schedule

New diploma, new math and now a new salary schedule.

I’m afraid that this new diploma and new math curriculum have doomed a population of our kids. If they have to pass Math I, II, and III, I fear they will not ever be able to graduate. I understand why it came about and I understand why there is only one diploma track (law suits), but I still hate it and find it unfair to my kids. I can teach them the math skills they need to pass the graduation test. I can teach them the math skills they need to be mathematically functional in today’s world. But this new math curriculum.....I may as well be speaking Greek to them. When they ask me when they are ever going to use it my reply is always the same...to graduate from high school. They will not use it to balance their checkbooks or budget their grocery money. I teach the math I’m told to teach and my sweet little kids sit there and take it. I measure progress in teaspoons, not leaps and bounds.

breeze348: Fire Chief Henry Argo

I just read the article on Palmetto's Fire Chief Henry Argo. I would like the tax paying citizens in Fayetteville to know if you were not aware this man used to be the Fire Chief in the City of Fayetteville and left to better himself because the City of Fayetteville was not aware of what a fine and outstanding Fire Chief they had.

The Shadow: If only America had a real leader like

Andrew Jackson, one who would by his words and actions protect constitutional freedoms and our monetary unit. During his presidency, Jackson viewed as his crowning achievement that he “killed” the 2nd bank of US, and with it the efforts of Congress and special money interests to establish a paper money system, instead of the constitutional requirement that money be only gold and silver.

p-ode: 2008 is old news!

Considering what has happened to many--mostly--people of color in Haiti, it seems paranoid, petty, and pathetic to bring this up NOW! And yes we can discuss race in this country.

Gamma Sherri: What's the law?

Gamma Sherri's picture

It's 4:00 in Fayetteville. Southbound traffic on GA-85 is stopped. My friend is turning left onto Hambersham drive. The folks headed south stop, and wave him on so he can turn left. As he's turning (everybody is stopped in both lanes), he gets broadsided by a car traveling *on the shoulder* south. The white line was solid before Habersham, "breaks" at the entrance, and not even ten yards past the entrance turns into a turn lane for CVS and Checkers.

This winter is shaping up to be one of the Coldest since the 1977-78 winters. That winter, nearly all of the United States east of the Rockies had a cold October followed by a warm November, with the cold returning in December. Which was what we had..
