Around Town: Dim the Lights - the party's over for 'Team Sanderson'
To Around Town wrote - I have to disagree with the "bull in a china shop" reference about school board member Holli Cash. Her family has a history of dedication and involvement at Griffin Middle School going back many years. She is just like any other involved parent.
Casey Gratz wrote - I give up. Which is it? You criticize some on the board for wanting to keep future board members in the loop, yet you criticize candidate Bill Borden for not reaching out. I assume, in the case of Borden, it is the continual drumbeat of finding anything wrong with this guy even though the election is over, (or didn't you know?). I also assume overtures to future members so we might actually have a board that tries to work in a professional manner does not fit your template of attempting to sell more papers, that is, a board in turmoil. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. I am sure this will never see the light of day.
Which is it? wrote - To Casey- the big to do about Lynnda Crowder-Eagle and Holli Cash "wooing" Kathy Angelucci is the fact that they really didn't want Angelucci to comment in person or in the paper in the past and now they are tying to be nice. It seems rather hypocritical considering their past behavior.
Horace Williams wrote - Casey- you are reading too much into this. The MDJ is the only source of fair, objective, one-sided journalism around these parts. Borden has new plates and lost, Superintendent Fred Sanderson is resigning, Angelucci wins. The planets and board are aligning, maybe with the Mayan calendar, for some amazing event. Be prepared for Armageddon or at least some more interesting board meetings.
Morgan needs to go wrote - I agree with "Holli is GONE." We need to get David Morgan to resign or give up his position. He has been a do-nothing member. And to think we could have had Betty Gray another term. This was disgraceful, south Cobb. Vote for the best person for the job next time.
Kennesaw mom wrote - Why can't a super be an elected official? I bet then we'd have one that would listen to the parents and what we want and if not, then he/she would be out of a job!
Board Observer wrote - Question: How did we get Dr. Steve Constantino as heir apparent to Sanderson without any warning or a search committee? Were Sanderson and the old Board just planning to plug him into the job in one of their secret meetings?
Holli is GONE! wrote - Pack your bags, Cash! I hope and pray Angelucci does not wither under pressure and stands firm with Alison Bartlett. I want to know when we can kick David Morgan off the board for failing to perform his duties?
Kirby blog: Should Barnes cold-shoulder the president, or cozy up to him, at coming Democratic fundraiser in Atlanta?
Had to laugh wrote - Hopefully, Roy will get a pat on the head from Obama and that will be the end of poor Roy's political career! I have to admit, the very question made me smile. My advice to Roy would be to stay home, stay quiet and be sick with a cold.
Maybe, just maybe wrote - Instead of Atlanta, go to south Georgia. Roy should plan a trip to the Gulf when Obama is here. B.O. might chase him to south Ga., but we all know he won't go near the Gulf. The Georgia Republican Party should take every opportunity to tie these two to one another.
Alan Smith wrote - Maybe Roy's good buddy, John Edwards, will come to Georgia and help him campaign against Karen Handel.
Older and wiser 49 wrote - I can only pray that Barnes will embrace and praise the "Man who would be King" and maybe even bow to him. One less Democrat in power is a great first step in this nation's recovery, and that photo op would guarantee Handel's victory.
Mike Jones wrote - Maybe Obama will hug Roy Barnes, thus ensuring Karen Handel wins the race for Governor by 20 percent.
Council slashes funding for history museum ...
Heh wrote -The Marietta Museum is a vital link in the tourism draw for the city. It's amazing to me that the City Council insists on cutting its budget so much that it puts the museum in danger of having to close. Yet they don't even know what they have. It's a wonderful educational center (and fun too) and draws a multitude of tourists. Councilman/history board member Van Pearlberg needs to step down if he's not going to be committed to helping.
