  1. you do realize the splost passing is going to mean nothing different when it takes effect compared to today or tommorow or next week. The education splost has been around for a while. The vote on it was to keep it not implement it. I for one am glad that it passed. Without it our education system would be in a lot more trouble. Thank you to all those who voted for the education splost

  2. Ok so I am trying to find somewhere in/near paulding county that will actually be celebrating and doing a fireworks show on the 4th of July not the 3rd not the 5th and not next weekend. I would really like to find a fireworks show to take my daughter to tommorow night.

  3. Look, I don't have a problem with it, I say keep the kids in school. I'm worried for the other parents and the busdrivers.


    My point was, the BOE knows how people panic when it snows here in the south, something people aren't use too. People think about others who are out in it, so not only do people have to look out for other drivers, but they are trying to stay level as well.


    What about the high school children that drive and don't have the experience in it, these parents have the right to worry. Or the bus drivers that have to get the children home safely, they have a lot to do and focus on.


    I have always thought the same thing about high school kids who drive. But do you seriously think that all these kids who drive are going to head straight home? No they are not.

  4. knew it wouldn't take long for the board bashing to start. I think they are doing a job I wouldn't want to do. I know it would be smart to try and keep them till 11:30 without their safety being jeopardized. Don't wanna make up anymore days if we don't have to.

  5. Every time I hear or see Obama talk I feel a violent and sudden urge to throw up! I know the word hate is a very strong word but I really do hate Obama. These people are all arguing over healthcare when we still have people losing their houses and are out of work!


    Bottom line when it comes to healthcare for me is this.


    1. Is it going to cost me more money in premiums?


    2. Am I going to be taxed more to give people healthcare?


    If either of these are answered with yes then I don't want it.


    It is not my responsibility to provide healthcare to everyone else. I hope this doesn't go through and I hope we (republicans) take back the house and the senate in November so we can stop this idiot from doing anymore damage to our country!

  6. The calender further shows lack of foresight and leadership in the county office. It carries from the board office down through the schools.


    I have voiced my opinion on some of these issues to a few people at the board office and I heard of no discussion or change.


    that is a very bold statement! Care to share with us why you seem to think this? I know many of the people in leadership roles at the county office and they are all very good leaders and very good at what they do.

  7. JSYK... it doesn't exactly work like that. Say Sept 1, receives the most votes, yet the BOE decides (for whatever reason, financial..etc) that Sept 1 is not in the best interest of Paulding county, they look at what was voted on, and then they vote for what they think best.


    I would venture to guess, if we did a poll that was private, most teachers would not be showing happy with an August 1 start date. We do not get out until June 5, then post planning then back in July for pre-planning.


    I will say it is a done deal and no matter what we or anyone thinks it is happening like this. I will deal with it. Do I love it? No, but sometimes you just deal with what you are dealt.


    In this instance the BOE gave 3 options for the calander and put it out there for everyone, parents, teachers, employees, etc to vote on. They wanted the publics opinion. The BOE went with the option that received the most votes


    Don't give me "if we had a poll that was private" stuff. The vote for the 3 calanders were annonymous. Teachers just like everyone else had the ability to vote annonymously just like I did!

  8. of all the teachers I have talked to about the breaks is this. Most people think that kids are crazy the week before a break and it takes a while to get them back on track after a break. There are only 2 breaks in the year that the kids get a little wild. Christmas break and last week of school. The kids seem refreshed and work harder after the breaks. This year will just seem like a short summer cause it will be. Next summer won't be as bad. It averages out to a break about every 5-7 weeks (not including the 3 weeks between thanksgiving and xmas). As someone who works in the school system It don't bother me one way or the other when the kids start or don't start. I just think the government is trying to put their hands into to many things they shouldn't (but thats another story for another topic)


    As far as local business like 6 flags eh don't bother me. I'm not a big fan of 6 flags and its honestly not in the safest of areas anyways.

  9. Sorry if I have come across like an a$$. It just gets on my nerves when people do nothing but complain about something but do nothing to try and fix the problem or are proactive enough to make it known how they feel except on a message board after the fact. Sadly we vote for these people and rely on them to make the choices for us. Some times we have to let our board of education members know how we feel much like we do with our government politicians.


    I have always been of the belief that if you don't take the time to vote or express your opinion to the people that make the choices then you can't complain when something happens you don't agree with. If anyone out there think they can do it better by all means sign up and run for office.


    You can't please all of the people all of the time but you can please some of the people some of the time.

  10. That would be great except for the fact that we were given three choices which all sucked as far as timing. It is insane to allow children to exert themselves in a gym that has no a/c in August. It is also fiscally irresponsible to pay the a/c bill when the alternative is available and has always worked for us in the past.


    I am not a fan of legislation making the call for local government/school systems but I think it's about time someone put a stop to this nonsense. Bring on the law if that's what it's gonna take!




    Here, here! I think the continuous weekly breaks are disruptive.


    First off most high schools have year round things going on in their schools from football practice to band practice to basketball baseball and so on. High School sports has become a year round (even during the summer) event. Your going to complain about a gym having no a/c in august. Its usually just as hot in september. and oh yeah the football players are out in the heat in full pads in august. Don't hear you complaining about that. If all the choices sucked did you go to the board meeting and make your voice heard? Or do you just want to sit on here and complain and not do anything about it?


    All the teachers I have talked to are excited about the breaks. The kids come back from these breaks refreshed and work harder.

  11. I'm for this legislation. The local school boards obviously don't listen to the teachers or parents.


    That entire comment is absurd and rediculous. The Paulding BOE put the calenders to vote. They had 3 options for everyone to look at and choose from. People voted and the board went with the calender that was picked by the voting. So before you go blasting your school board by saying they don't listen please make sure that you know all the facts.


    To the idiot lawmaker in Marietta he has no right to dictate when school starts and when it doesn't. That is the local school boards decision! Maybe he should be trying to think of ways to turn around the economy and help create jobs instead of interfering with the local school boards.

  12. Been having constant problems with my dsl internet since thursday afternoon. Was on the phone with the lady for 45 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong going through all these different things just to find out it that it was an outage. Getting very annoyed with the problems. I got tired of making calls to comcast cause their internet sucked and switched to AT&T. GRRRRRRR

  13. Send me a PM and I will get you info about a great daycare in Dallas. My daughter has been going there since she was 6 weeks old. She is now reaching 2 and will be leaving the infant/toddler room and we are very upset about it. The teachers in the infant/toddler are the best and we will miss them very much in 2 weeks when our little one moves to the 2 year old room.

  14. Bruce Harris is agood man and sheriff. Why don't they just leave him alone. I think his wife and step-daughter pissed someone off in that office. That doesn't mean he is not doing his job. GIVE HIM A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Doesn't he have to be in the office to be doing his job? Not at home cutting the yard.

  15. My room mate's dog lost her battle with diabetes 6 months ago. It was very hard on her and has taken her a while to get over her. We went Monday afternoon up to the Paulding County Humaine Society to look at dogs and see what they had. My room mate found one that she wanted. It was a very emotional day for her as this was the first time she had been to look for a new dog since she lost hers. We brought him home that day and he is doing very well. He is very happy and so is my room mate. We have an appointment next tuesday with Dr. Judy to get him shots and checked out. We gave him a bath last night (actually I took pictures my room mate gave the bath). We are having a great time with our new addition and just wanted to say thank you to all the people up at PCHS. I forget what kind of dog he is but his name was Snoopy(that is what the card said) We have since renamed him Nicky and he seems very happy. He doesn't like a leash but he is getting better and better every time we use it. He has had only 1 accident in the house(which is great)


    Thank you again to everyone we love him so much and we will give him a very happy and loving home. He will be very spoiled!!!!!!!
