How are cuffs "criminal"? Dont you think the context of the situation is paramount overRead More the tool?? They weren't used to punish but to protect. To protect the outburster as well as others. Just as a harness and leash on a toddler isn't treating the child "like a dog", but allowing for the child's safety as the first priority.

Handcuffs for a child who kicked someone. Hmm. Maybe leg restraints would have been better.
Rebecca Kennedy April 24, 2014 at 06:30 am
Handcuffs should not have been used. Why was the school resource officer dealing with the child inRead More the first place? That is why school employees are supposed to have special education training to obtain the skills needed to handle children with disabilities in a controlled manner. I have seen an over use of school resource officers before. The school employees are getting lazy and are not handling the issues that they should handle on their own. If the child had a disorder then there should have been someone there trained on how to defuse the situation without it coming to violence. That is the problem with the system as it is. Answer violence with violence not rational thinking with helping some one who needs understanding.

Such a small price for such a big gain. Many schools in Cumming are at full capacity and addingRead More classrooms is a lot better than new schools.

Some days no matter what one tries, things don't always go the way one had planned. Just ask theRead More Archbishop.

'flame retardant'? Some stupid liberal will probably try to change that to 'flame handicapped'.
wmsmom April 13, 2014 at 09:15 pm
No, the name doesn't need to change when it's used in the proper context. Your thoughts areRead More handicapped though, if that helps?

Now if Georgia can get some jobs for these grads. Only 2 companies in the last engineering job fairRead More were from Georgia. Sad we send our best out of state!

Yeah GT!
Road Scholar March 29, 2014 at 09:18 am
Not all Tech grads can stay here in Georgia.We are spread across the world! Another result of theirRead More enrollment policy and the needs of the world! When you are one of the best, non Georgians want you. When I was looking for a job , I had a few out of state firms state that they would like to add a GT grad to their staff. Cross "pollination" I guess!

Want happened to the person who used to be the editor of PATCH? A Ms. Murchison (Spelling?), IRead More believe. Just curious as I thought she was a good editor.
Richelle Murray March 2, 2014 at 02:51 pm
***** They need to contact :Navy Personnel Command (PERSCOM) out of Millington, TN. His obituary:Read More Harrison is survived by his two sons; Robert and Richard; and his four grandsons; Matthew, Michael, Daniel and David. The family, according to Ancestry.com's 1930 census is from Jefferson, Alabama.

I live in Kennesaw and have two owls living in my woods. They dont like it when I even try to getRead More pics, I can only imagine how terrified the owl "mascot" must be. Dress someone in a mascot costume and quit using Gods beautiful animals as a sick way to entertain people. Phyllis, u just have to ignore those hateful responses, some people are just ignorant.
Kirsten February 26, 2014 at 11:06 pm
Exactly--interesting, Patch, how your "sampling" of comments used in the article seemsRead More decidely one-sided.
Pam Mossack Doughty February 27, 2014 at 12:59 am
PETA actually DID try to get UGA to eliminate UGA and use a robotic dog. Not thinking that willRead More happen. Phyllis, so you're saying that we shouldn't have dogs as pets? REALLY? What is your suggestion to do with the abundance of dogs in the world? I am seriously asking you. And PETA has been documented with tossing euthanized dogs that they "rescued" into dumpsters, so PLEASE stop glorifying them.

In the photo, Sturgis has that "Yo, PETA, don't mess with my gig!" look.

Mike Ross , nicely stated! I couldn't agree more!!
David Tiffany March 2, 2014 at 10:04 am
While I agree, generally, with Mike Ross, he goes a bit overboard - just as the PETA people do. TheRead More owl undoubtedly lives better than other members of its species, rather than the other way around. PETA should spend its time and resources trying to protect animals that are truly being treated abusively. Mike should also tone it down. The people at PETA are not evil, but only want the best possible treatment for the animals that share our planet.

I have the utmost respect for Dr. Evans. He is a forward thinker and respects and admires all of theRead More employees in this school district. His support of our benefit, Forsyth BYOT, is helping to provide devices and home internet access for so many students who didn't otherwise have either. This wouldn't have happened without his enthusiasm and dedication to his district. Dr. Evans will be missed very much!

Congratulations Kristen! The Forsyth BYOT Benefit is honored to have such a distinguished MediaRead More Specialist as one of our supporters! This county - and the children - are privileged to have you here!
