MOULTRIE — Magnet school's impact
“I think all parents and community members should have been invited to the 'exclusive' meeting about a magnet school. It'll have an impact on all of us."
What's the cost
“I wonder how much it's costing our school system for so many coaches and bus drivers to go to the playoff games a day early. We can't afford to reduce class sizes or have fulltime assistant principals at the elementary school, but we can find funds for those expenses."
“The comments from Dr. Yearta makes it sound as if the elementary principals are on board with a magnet school. I understand that all 10 elementary principals have verbally said they don't think it's a good idea or is needed. So whose idea is it then?"
Gifted at middle school
“My problem is not with the daily instruction of the gifted students at the elementary school, my problem is with the structure and inflexibility of the middle school. That's when parents are leaving looking for a different option. Maybe that's where Dr. Yearta needs to be pushing her agenda."
Cuts to Social Security, Medicare
“I read in Fridays Rant and Raves where one of our local scholars refered to folks taking issue with Mr. Psalmond’s claim that Obama is an enemy of Social Security and Medicare as imbeciles. I've got one question. What part of the Republican Party wants major cuts to those two programs in order to agree to a debt deal don't you understand? I say again. The Republicans want to cut Medicare and Social Security, not Obama. It’s reality not some childish insult."
Bent out of shape
“Well once again we've got somebody that thinks the R&R column is just for their benefit. Somebody got bent out of shape in defense of Mr. Psalmond’s letter. But I don't seem to recall an actual attack on Mr. Psalmond and I sure don't remember any name calling. And its really funny how his defender sites how cowardly these anonymous rants are while calling us imbeciles anonymously."
A big thanks
“Last week I read here that you would like to see someone post a little good cheer this Christmas season so here goes. This past Sunday I left my purse in a buggy at Walmart and didn't realize it until Monday morning.
"When I called Walmart it had been turned in and when I picked it up nothing had been removed and it was in the same shape as when I left it.
"I want to say a big thanks to the person that found it and turned it in to the Walmart lost and found."
Rights of way
“I want to leave a mobile store downtown on DOT rights of way to sell goods. I do not think I can do that. Why can the Touchdown Club do that?"
