Rant and Rave for 11/28/12

MOULTRIE — The buzzards

“Who’s in charge of the buzzards? I don’t think we have a buzzards department. Are they really a health hazard or do we just imagine this? Maybe the health department can weigh in on this subject."

Violence

“After just now reading the article, ‘Lawmen: Violent Thanksgiving Weekend’, I'm thinking there has to be some real saints and patient folks in law enforcement in Moultrie and Colquitt County. How on earth do they deal with the environment that pervades the area now?"

Touching tribute

“What a touching tribute to Coach White! Great job Wayne Grandy."

Young educators

“It is a shame that our young educators have to travel out of town to get jobs. If they are good enough for another county, why aren't they good enough for Colquitt County? Wonder why after college our home town job seekers look elsewhere?"

Class size

“C. A. Gray has 9 PE teachers and 1300 students. If each PE teacher only teaches 6 out of 7 periods and if every student at the school took PE, they would only have 24 students in a class. My elementary school aged child has 30 students in her class during critical math and reading times! Maybe our newly elected school board members will step up and insist on change because our superintendent and assistant superintendent are not."

No peace

“We moved to the country outside of Norman Park to get peace and quiet. Now our new neighbors from way down south make it a nightly occurrence of getting drunk and shooting guns way past midnight. It’s got to stop."

Think about it

“Our military, police, firemen are fighting every day and some losing their lives to preserve our freedom and keep us safe. To the Black Friday  shoppers -- think about what you were fighting for, a cell phone."

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
