Some administrators/teachers are not going to be fair and treat all students equally. It’s their word against the student’s.
The word of the teacher/administrator will always stick, which is not being fair. That’s basically saying to the students that they do not have a voice.
I advise all parents to make a full and thorough investigation yourself when your child is involved, right or wrong. You will be surprised what some people will do to cover themselves.
We as parents are our children’s voices because there are people in high places who feel as though they can talk to a child any way they want and manipulate them or the issue at hand and get away with it.
I have two children and I am always checking on mine. Wonder if it was the administrator, teacher or bus driver, or counselor’s child, would they always take the word of the adult who referred their child over their own?
When does a child have a chance to plead his case?
If a child is telling the truth, the administrator, teacher, bus driver or counselor’s word still stands?

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.

Tis’ the season when scammers hone their deeds
It might be the season to be jolly, and we all might hope for peace and goodwill, but the fact is this is also the season for scammers.

‘Black Friday’: It’s a subset of our capitalism
Someone asked me what the term “Black Friday” meant. Well my understanding is that it means businesses would like to end the year in the “black” as opposed to being in the “red” financially. So they have a big sale.

Purple bows are back
A few years ago I wrote an article for the Moultrie Observer regarding the purple bows that were on the wreaths on the doors at St. John’s Episcopal Church at 609 South Main Street. In 2012 there were no purple bows or wreaths on the doors, as the church sat empty when the members of St. John’s left The Episcopal Church to form St. Mark’s Anglican Church. However, 2013 will mark the return of the purple bows, and the new spiritual home of St. Mark’s Anglican.
