Re: “Fulton County grand jury issues subpoena for probe of APS cheating scandal

Real World -

I think they get 52%; 34% to Fulton Co and the remainder (16%) to City of Atlanta.

That was the mantra formula some years back.

But goes aways to explain why the one entity of the three that does the most (Atlanta) is always short on cash to get things done - they don't get any compared to APS and even Fulton Co. (how many $100k+ salaries are there in COA compared to APS/ABOE?)

Re: “Harris Street renamed in honor of John Portman

Please post the nose count as to who voted for and who against this proposal.
I think it'd be very interesting to see whose allegiance (sp) lies where.
Let's play "Find the Spine"...

Re: “Yikes. Woman claims hammer-wielding man chased her on Freedom Park jogging trail

A woman was carjacked recently at Wylie and Estoria; two black men ran up to her car and pointed a gun at her and ordered her out of the car.

The nitwits who were mugging folks at gunpoint and then punching them in the face in Midtown were only carrying a bb gun, as it turns out, but who can tell when it's at night and it's 4 on 1.

Re: “We need to change Atlanta's 'Big Idea' mind-set

Smells like the Beltline all over again.
The serious emphasis on transit quickly disappeared as soon as developers smelled money.
When a major developer writes a letter in protest over being strong-armed into denser development then they want/are comfortable with long-term, it's a strange turn of affairs.
And last rumor i heard about the Beltline development was about a letter issued from a Beltline organization to a neighborhood organization (an NPU?) that read basically as "as you are unwilling to docilely (sp) go along with our plans, we are doing them without you."
Good luck to the neighborhoods around the fort~

Re: “How I spent my summer vacation: Stealing cars, breaking into houses

One of the tv stations earlier this week ran a clip of two black guys (looking mighty mighty young to me) skulking about a house in Morningside, and are thought to have burglarized a nearby house (they are thought to have been trying doorknobs looking for unlocked doors). I cannot find the clip...
But they sure do look awfully young...

Re: “Anyone want to dive head-first into the APS crapstorm?

Real world -

Guess i should tell all those gay couples on my street with kids to quit birthing and adopting... i've got 4 now to 3 gay households in spitting distance. Then there the straight couples continuing to breed and adopt as well (add 5 more). So that's 8 under 1yr in two blocks of Midtown.
And all, with the possible exception of two i've not talked to, are fully intending to send their kid(s) to SPARK.

What irks the crap outa me is looking at the sorry state of affairs passing as the 5 candidate slate to replace Khatim El.
An always-run, a Vincent Fort lackey, and one who's going to run for both ABOE and City Council. One grows veggies.

And not one of them with any school experience, like being a teacher someplace, or having kids in the district and having been involved with a PTA, etc, at least in the write ups i've seen.
Blech.
