How about the house on gulfport? They now have a new foundation, but the rest of the burned house is a disgrace.
Glad to hear of the separation. The Optimist Club should rename itself The Pessimist Club. They claim to have the best interests of the kids foremost, that is true to an extent. It is the best interests of only a few children, not all of them. There was no goal to help kids improve, they expected some kids to play down, so it could be a "level" playing field. There was no encouragement for doing better; just the opposite, one of their great ideas was to not allow kids to play certain postions because they were too good. Most of these kids are going into middle school next year, three years away from high school, where the competion is pretty intense, you have to make a team on your skill -- what a nice way to prepare them for that cruel world.
Sure, let's take some more money out of the pockets of the working middle class. I travel over that bridge at least twice a day to get to and from work, most often 4 times a day due to kids, school, sporting events, etc. Gas prices have put a serious dent in our monthly budget, now let's make it worse. Tax the tourists, toll the tourists, but leave the year rounders alone. I agree that asking the county residents whether to have a toll or not is a waste of time, ask the full time residents, I am sure you will get an earful. They toll that bridge, remember, there is still a free one available.
Maybe if people were considerate enough, the City would not have had to spend $248,000. When emergency vehicles are approaching, it is very safe, easy and inexpensive to just give them the space they need; but in today's society, an individual driver's concerns, destination and/or selfishness is the rule. It would be nice if any one of those drivers would stop to realize that maybe the emergency vehicles are responding to their house or family member.
Moving to another school in the county or moving out of state is considered a transfer, not dropping out. When a student transfers to another school, there is a lot of paper work that goes along with it. To hint at the fact that the survey considered students that transferred as drop outs is ridiculous. To think that the public is going to believe that is just as ridiculous. If the survey was conducted that way, I think the company that did the survey should check its own records and the educational backgrounds of its employees.
