Well for one, the county-wide grad rate is 78%. 4 of our 6 schools are +80%. Only one school inRead More particular is bring the rate down, though the new principal there has done great things and is turning that school around. That school, while needing improvement, is still above the state average. Please use facts when ranting.

That's still horrible. Nothing to brag about by any means. Oh and it seems that from 9th grade toRead More 12th grade, the student population decreases by nearly half from 742 students in 9th grade to 344 students in 12th grade. I believe Chad was referring to Cherokee High School, as am I.

The fact that you are defending a 78% graduation rate, is sad in itself. Also, why are we judgingRead More Cherokee against the state rankings? That's like the blind leading blind! I think if you would be honest with yourself and look at how Georgia stacks up against other states, you will find out why people like myself, are embarrassed and disgusted with the school system that we have here in this state. Look, I grew up in North West Georgia and it pains me to admit how deficient our school system has been. But what makes me even more disgusted, is people that refuse to question "the system." If we don't question, then who will? Are you really that naive to believe that leaders will make the right decision when no one is looking? People like Kelly Marlow shouldn't be crucified for wanting an explanation. They should praised! Either way as your brag about that wonderful 78% graduation rate, most states in the NE are arguing who has a higher COLLEGE graduation rate. Hell, the next thing you will be telling me is that Cherokee high school has nice facilities! Please don't do that.

His disgusting act deserves the death penalty or life with a chance for parole . If we are luckyRead More another inmate might take care of the prolem .

life in prison is to good for this low life he should be tied to four horse and pulled apart thisRead More would be more fitting to life with parol in 30 years..

I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

Maybe running a red light?
strange days April 21, 2014 at 02:57 pm
you know what i hate. "charged with DUI" So you just stopped a random car to makeRead More sure they werent drinking and driving? They weren't weaving, werent speeding, had valid registration, and license, didnt run a red light. Just DUI. Also, for all we know they blew under the legal limit. Little known fact. Cherokee county gives out alot of "DUI/DUI less safe" If you are charged with DUI they will throw DUI less safe on the indictment for just in case. DUI less safe means that you blew under .08 but the officer felt you shouldnt be driving. So if you have a cop trying to meet quota "which canton city, and cherokee county BOTH HAVE" of course DUI,DUI less safe will be throw out at everyone.

strange days......... Just be sure your tag light is in working order, because if your tag light isRead More out that is probable cause for an officer to "go fishing" and see what he/she can catch. Clearly a non functional tag light is evidence of unsafe driving........LOL

LOL, and I would never skydive *shudders*.

But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

Do you know the difference between us and Scandinavia/Iceland? I would say, but I would be called aRead More racist.

You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

JERRY S. The breath test starter interlock system doesn't really do anu good. I have a sister inRead More law that had one on her car. When she was driving while under the influence she just made her young daughter blow into the devise and " WALA!"
