Re: “Glenridge Hall faces demolition in the near future

How would one go about seeing if a purchase for preservation reason could be made?

"Instead of reading a story about this case, I'd rather read you two having another circlejerk/pissing-match/hatefuck-session in the comment section.

Oh, wait, actually I'd rather not."

Yea I can tell by the way you crammed all those metaphors in there.

Re: “Voters to decide on Deal's failing schools plan in 2016

Vote NO. Shutting schools down and implementing charter schools is NOT the answer.

Re: “6 solutions for 6 ATL hassles

You may not have to pay to get your Herbie-Curbie replaced and it may not have been stolen. Mine got stuck on the truck and after I called, I just had to go get a new one off of Northside Drive on a Saturday Morning for no charge.

Re: “Glenridge Hall faces demolition in the near future

It's weird that so much anger is focused on the developer instead of the City of Sandy Springs. Their little small government utopia is apparently so small they have no laws on the books preventing someone from demolishing a building on the national register of historic places. Or, for that matter, the family who owned it—who chose to sell to the developer from whom they could extract the maximum amount of cash, rather than work with a local historical society on the sale. I think it's awful that such a well-designed building is being torn down, too, but the people who could've kept it from getting this far deserve their share of the blame.

Re: “Special session possible if lawmakers don't pass transportation bill, Deal says

Can't blame them for not getting around to fixing what is supposedly Atlanta's #1 issue; they're busy wasting time with the freedom to discriminate bill.

Re: “Witnesses: Police officer didn't need to fire shots at Anthony Hill

Anyone know offhand Atlanta's and/or Georgia's stance on less than lethal weapons?
Cases like what happened in Ferguson would likely still happen (since there was at least allegedly a struggle for a gun), but it seems many others could be avoided.

Re: “He can't climax and she's sore about it

My passion for love and life has made me to take to the internet to
warn internet users particularly those in search of solution to their
problems to beware of and avoid comments about spell caster that can
use their magical power in helping you out with your problems. i don't
want anyone to be fooled because i was a victim of this fraudsters
who claimed to be spell casters. i am jennifer mills and i was having
a difficult time in my relationship as i couldn't give birth to a
child. Although my husband loved me very much as it were,we kept on
hoping and for 6years there weren't any sign of breakthrough .As days
goes by,i will always weep because at that time i was really down.
Even though my husband tried to always be by my side,only time would
tell as he couldn't cope with pressure from friends and had to leave
me for another lady. i was now left to face my problem alone even
though my mom would always talk to me and console me on phone. Things
went from bad to worse when i was sacked from the private organization
i was working because been happily married was a criteria that was
needed and that i was now lacking owing to my barrenness that made my
husband leave me for another lady leaving me single. I kept on
searching and hoping i would find a solution to my problem but there
wasn't any coming. I contacted lots of spell caster as i saw them on
the internet but all were scams as they demanded money from me
frequently and nothing happened. i had to relocate from Texas city
United state to Jamaica where my mom was residing and also because i
became racially abused because of my color .I spent 4 months with my
mom and together we kept on looking for solution,still to no avail.
There came a faithful day when i met my high school mate who knew i
was happily married and living in Texas city United state with my
husband and had to ask why i flew back to Jamaica. I explained my
problem to her and with sincere desire in wanting my problems solved
she led me to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI. Although i was doubtful but soon as i
explained my problem to him,he laughed and gave me a maximum of
72hours for my husband to come back and for me to become pregnant. I
did all i was asked to do which included me traveling back to Texas
city United state. I traveled back to Texas city united state,on my
arrival during the early hours of the morning,my phone rang and guess
who?it was my husband who called asking for my forgiveness and saying
he was coming back home. He came few hours later and on his knees he
pleaded for forgiveness. Although it was a tough decision for me to
make because of all the pains i have been through. I love him and
needed him back so i had no option but to forgive him. we sat together
and while i was resting my head on his chest we had romantic
conversation and talked about things that we have never spoken about
and like husband and wife the urge came to have sex and we had sex for
a very long time that day. The next day which was still within the
72hours given by DOCTOR JAMIN ABAYOMI i felt something different in my
body and immediately i went for a check up and to my greatest
surprise,i was pregnant. How possible could this be but it happened
and am very thankful also my skin color that made me racially abused
was changed to the preferred and know we are now happily married again
and no racially discrimination. All thanks to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI for his
solution.
ARE YOU FACED WITH SIMILAR PROBLEM OR ANY KIND OF PROBLEM.PLEASE KNOW
THAT DR JAMIN ABAYOMI isn't on the internet so kindly contact him via
EMAIL:drjaminremedy@outlook.com

Re: “Neighborhood Issue 2015

As a general issue, ppl who expect that moblie tech is gonna be spot on & up 2 date are tryna live in the 27XX C & will never be satisfied
[b/c tech is moving so fast to ....etc etc ]....
Get a grip & come back to where we ARE.

The reason I'm here is to AXE {ghettoifically] :
When did neighborhoods L or any where become officially designated ?
I've never encountered that sort of specificiciiy.

I 've been here in ATL abt 4 yrs & always wondered what the diff was between, say, Mechanicsvile & Peoplestown....

Although such designations seem handy, what part of the general public knows, or is expected to know, that ?

Re: “Why are adjuncts treated like junk?

@Mark -- Many Visiting Assistant Professors (1-2 yr appointments) as well as "lecturers" or "instructors" (full time, non tenure track) do receive health benefits from the institution. But it is very rare for a person like Mandy, who teaches semester by semester, course by course, to carry a full teaching load and to receive health benefits. So the State of Georgia unfortunately is pretty typical in that regard.

Re: “Atlanta Public Schools looks to a charter system

GA Law: From Charter Schools Act of 1998:

"(2) "Charter petitioner" means a local school, local board of education, private
individual, private organization, or state or local public entity that submits a petition for a
charter. The term "charter petitioner" does not include home study programs or schools,
sectarian schools, religious schools, private for profit schools, private educational
institutions not established, operated, or governed by the State of Georgia, or existing
private schools."

For-profit charters are illegal.

Re: “Atlanta Public Schools looks to a charter system

"Unlike charter schools, a charter system does not involve privatizing schools or placing them outside the APS board of education's control. "

To be clear, charter schools in the city of Atlanta are not private. Converting a school to a charter has nothing to do with 'privatization'. Starting a charter school is NOT starting a private school. Charters in Atlanta have a contract with APS and the GA DOE. They are public schools. The GA DOE doesn't like charter management companies. It is seen as the least desirable method of managing the school. Also, in the event an outside management company is used, charter management companies can not have any reps on the governing board of the charter school because it is a conflict of interest.
