Just making conversation. I honestly believed that you were being clever with the name. If you look at all of the Soperton Topix you will see comments from somebody with the name "disappointed ". Just wondering whether there were two people using similar names. No grudge at all. Never did ask for anybody's real name. Don't really care. We do Topix to share ideas, not personal backgrounds, family backgrounds, resumes. We are off topic in this exchange. Let's get back on Obama. I believe that was the original topic that you originated.  (Sep 2, 2010 | post #23)

Treulten County School Site Has Some Concerned About Safety

Go to the BOE office and look at the records. Or call Gary Walden; he should remember. It cost in the 10s of thousands to pay for the removal. Carpet? There never was any asbestos in the floors or floor coverings. The old buildings on the primary campus never had any asbestos. Facts? Where did you get your "facts"?  (Sep 2, 2010 | post #31)

Can Treutlen County AFFORD a new school?

Yeah! What she said! Raising salaries for education gets the opposite thing than what's intended. Instead of rewarding smart dedicated teachers, the money gets high enough to attract people who don't give a darn about real education. They just look for a big paycheck. Most of them barely got through school themselves. Only a few are high in intelligence. They can't teach academic courses because they despise academics themselves. Some of the parapros who put in equal time as the teachers, and working harder than the teachers, can do a better job of teaching, and at less than one-third the salary. The worst situation of all is the hiring of D.A. ex-coaches as administrators. They're supposed to be managers, but they can't even manage their own personalities. If Dollar General had such incompetent managers and assistant managers the company would be out of business. I bet DG doesn't pay managers 60 to 80 thousand dollars. Most of you already know how to look it up, but in case you don't: http://www.open.ge orgia.gov/sta/sear chCriteria.aud go to the bottom of the letter and click This is not simply a county issue; the problem is statewide.  (Sep 1, 2010 | post #116)

You are guessing about asbestos. The asbestos was removed from the schools a long time ago. Many years, at least 15 or 20. Get your facts straight. Geez!  (Sep 1, 2010 | post #29)

Why do you want a new school? It wouldn't advance education in our county until the whole system changes. It won't even create a winning sports program. Example: THS once played exciting, state-class boys basketball. A legacy of 3 or 4 decades. Just about the time the new gym was built, boys basketball went downhill. Way downhill. Beautiful new gym, but I'd trade the whole thing to see a repeat of even one Wheeler-Treutlen match-up in the McArthur gym. But we can't bring it back. Spending $25 million for a building the students don't need is ridiculous.  (Sep 1, 2010 | post #28)

You sure do know technology much better than I do. I've seen "Dissapointed " and "Disappointed ". Are both of you the same person? Wondering about the cleverness of your name. Diss a point. Does that mean dissing somebody's point?  (Sep 1, 2010 | post #21)

"Former student" and "not worried" have shown us how to have a good logical, civil discussion. I'm clapping like crazy! Anybody else want to add to the applause?  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #113)

I'm sorry that you expect people to accept your opinions just because you have opinions. Anger, name-calling, frustration never promote understanding.  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #17)

It's amazing to me, too. I guess people usually have to get mad about something to express themselves. Old joke: Baby wouldn't talk. Got older and still wouldn't talk. Sent the baby to the doctor. Still wouldn't talk. One morning the family heard him shout "This breakfast stinks." You know the rest of the joke "I've known how to talk for two years, but everything has been fine until this stinking breakfast."  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #16)

You mean your cellphone doesn't have a shift key? I would guess that many people who read and comment on Topix do so partly because of anonymity. Otherwise, why not use Face Book? Your concern for America is evident. It might help if you take more time to organize your thoughts before writing.  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #15)

Do you ever read Wikipedia? Did McVeigh verbally renounce his heritage? Was he quoted? Or are you just assuming?  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #14)

And I would say that you're white and gay, but we may be wrong. What does that have to do with anything. We're trying to discuss topics. If your objective is humor..... you could do better.  (Aug 31, 2010 | post #12)
