Rants and raves

WENT TO THE AUGUSTA Museum. The exhibits for James Brown and the history of baseball in Augusta were excellent! If you haven't been there, go. Well worth your time.

GEORGIA SCHOOL EXEC Kathy Cox wants students to apply for "her" 2008-09 student advisory council. They will "discuss how decisions made at the state level affect students. ..."

Can't Superintendent Cox make her own decisions? Does she need help from immature teenagers? Then again, is this just another way for Cox to get attention brought to herself?

RAVE FOR CIRCUIT CITY staff, especially Omar, Marcus and Russell for their great customer service and friendliness. Keep up the great work.

SINCE WHEN ARE employees paid an outrageous bonus just for doing their job? I wonder how much of that $15,000 is going toward Dr. Bedden's "battle"?

RANT FOR the Board of Education. How can you give a director/president a bonus of $15,000 and then raise taxes? Why is it there is talk about salaries being frozen, and cars getting taken away, and this man gets a bonus?

IT'S AMAZING HOW government can screw up everything it touches. Georgia officials insist we need statewide trauma centers, i.e., paid for by government tax money. Amazing that 50 years ago, private hospitals did most of the emergency room work in Georgia (and all other states). Now government does it, and as usual, they get everything wrong, and a lot of middle men take most of the money.

SCIENTISTS WANT TO "create artificial life."

"They've already accomplished some steps needed..."

Bull! To create life you must start with a handful of dust! These guys want to be God so badly, they will start with other forms of life and then pretend they "created" life. They also want their "creation" to be "capable of evolving," something God's creation doesn't do. So, they're "modifying and assembling existing ... molecules." That's not "creating!" That's just giant egos playing God.

My RANT is the people using the reader comments section to post stupid comments. CBBP, ZenoElia, PTHS and Trouble are the worst. They clog up the section and waste space. Go to a chat room.

Why is it a bad idea to have

Why is it a bad idea to have a student advisory council. My HS daughter is more mature than a lot of these posters, me included. Students would be the best source of info to study what is being taught vs tested

The information about Dr.

The information about Dr. Bedden getting $15,000 bonus is unfair to the under paid dogs that does his work. There are so many of the school's employees that need more money who do the work, but then if you come out and look around, you have the people in the building that say get there early leave early and go off campus to lunch and the bank and oh I only work when the boss is here --are you crazy? you pay these people to take up space -so I guess you can give Dr. Bedden a bonus. Let's look at some of these people who will not evenanswer the phone while the kids are at school and especially after the bell rings at 2:30, they don't answer they visit down the halls and play on the computer. Give me a break, they are the ones who needs to be checked on and some of your upper people in schools. Take that 15,000 and give it to the underpaid overworked dedicated people. Check it out JImmy and Board

I know that most government school graduates don't understand what contracts are or how they work, but do they have to whine about Bedden every day? Is the number 15k that overpowering?

Government doesn't screw up

Government doesn't screw up everything it touches. Of course, when they get out of their field and try social engineering, it just seems like they screw up everything.

Scrumpy is alcoholic cider. I

Scrumpy is alcoholic cider. I like it. Too much will not only produce a good high, it will act as an intestinal stimulant. Is it good? Depends on your taste.

Since scrumpy is fermented

Since scrumpy is fermented fruit, it can only be 14% max. Most I've seen is 5 to 8%.

Scrumpy Cider is fermeted in

Scrumpy Cider is fermeted in open barrels, normally in a barn. Creatures fall into it and become part of the "fragrance". There is a reason they will only sell tourists "half pints".
