This is not the time to try a $75,000-per-year experiment that would have an insignificant effect on dropout rates! Laney High School's dropout rate can only be decreased if the parents take on the responsibility that they are now passing on to the teachers and others. It's up to the parents to demand high standards from their children (and teachers) and they should expect nothing less.

The Georgia Supreme Court postponed the execution of a triple murderer because the man attempted suicide. His lawyer claims he is too nuts to be executed. If a court is stupid enough to fall for that, everybody on death row will immediately pretend to try to commit suicide; then all will NOT be executed by a court that claims you can't execute a nut case, while the phony nut cases will laugh all the way out of death row.

Speaking of Obama's golf swing, if his swing is as awkward as is shown on TV, he is an awful golfer. If he's claiming decent scores, with THAT swing, he's lying about golf, too.

Our many thanks to a wonderful lady who stopped on Evans to Locks Road last Friday to rescue our new little puppy who had sneaked out of the fenced yard. You were so thoughtful to take the time to be sure she was safe. Spicy Girl says "many thanks!"

Property owners cannot prevent tenants from not paying their water bills. Lori Davis, who is running for mayor, should know that property owners cannot be responsible for tenants not paying their bills.

This is a rant for the person that has their own street that I happen to drive on my way to Augusta State University. How did you get your own street?

There is always one thing that makes a Republican look real good. A Democrat.

Somebody told me that to be in "The Tea Party," you must be at least 50 years old and have Rush Limbaugh programmed on your radio ...

When them psychiatrists get through with you, you not only look like a gooney , you act like a gooney , too.

This is a rant for the procurement office. It needs a new director. They should have investigated the license problem with the people that wanted to operate The Patch. It's time to get a new officer.

I visit your fair city quite often. ... It appears as though you don't have a speed limit. Every time I come over there's people passing me like I'm sitting still. I can be going 80 mph, it doesn't matter. Whether I'm on 520 or whether I'm on one of the regular roads it's just like there's no speed limit over there.

I suppose we could give Jane the benefit of the doubt, and just wait her out. Her true personna will purge itself for the whole world to see. For now, she is not on my A-list!

I was there, and we saw the news reels in our clubs. The manager had to close our main club because of all the guys throwing beer at the screen. (It was still in the bottles and cans). We were begging for the special services to bring her to our camp! Funny, she never showed up!

Never gave a hoot for Jane, don't think she's all that as an actress. If her daddy wasn't who he was, we never would have heard of her.

I know corgi, I'm just a tad

I know corgi, I'm just a tad bit younger. As a matter of fact, my father isn't even old enough to have been in Vietnam. My father-in-law, on the other hand, was over there and he has a lot of issues because of it. I've seen that picture also and it's just plain awful. I was referring to the slips of paper. I've heard conflicting stories over the years, but all the ones that say it really did happen are so consistent that it's hard not to believe. I don't have even a twinge of doubt that she's a traitor.

"I will never allow anyone to do my thinking for me, and some people can't handle that fact."

Isn't that the life style of our great King SMCICBHO.

Sarge - just got in from a delightful evening at the Polka Dot Pig with a large group of friends. I'm not staying up long, I've got a big hike in the a.m. followed by a full day of volunteering at the Iron Man event.

Hi Abby, she was definitely a traitor, then! She will always be a traitor because of her actions, but it's possible she could have changed! Like I stated earlier, time will tell, and only God knows her heart for certain!

That's between her and God. Unfortunately, I'm human and have some issues forgiving such crimes when she has never been punished for them. That's just my opinion and you know what they say about opinions. :-)

Happy, I peeked! If God has forgiven her, she is forgiven! Period! But how do we know for sure she was pure in her heart when she asked for forgiveness? We don't! That's why no one knows anyone's status until the day we stand before the King! Then, we won't care, will we?

I can forgive her, but the

I can forgive her, but the results of what she did are not just going away just because she is forgiven any more than forgiving someone for jumping off a roof means their legs and back aren't broken anymore.

Being a traitor is a stain on a character and a soul that doesn't go away in someone's lifetime, just like many other horrible choices and actions people commit. Forgiveness doesn't remove that even if people actually could forget all about it, which they can't.

Here's the thing about Jane;

Here's the thing about Jane; she could be telling the truth about her conversion. If she is, then it's possible she is truthfully repentant. If she is repentant, then God has forgiven her. We as Christians, are bound by our own faith to forgive her as well, but nothing says we have to forget, even if we forgive!
