Teaching Jobs Lost Under Alabama Governor Bentley

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, May 8, 2014

Yet more bad news from Governor Bentley’s incompetent, do-nothing administration.

Chalk up more jobs lost.

This is a DIRECT RESULT of the closure of the International Paper manufacturing facility in Courtland.

And the best worst part is, he’s playing with our children’s lives.

Be certain to thank him at the ballot box this November.

And the bad, sad news is undeniable: Alabamians are “largely poor, uneducated, and easy to command.”

When will Alabamians learn?

Wait… if the residents are “largely poor” they’re certain to be “uneducated, and [therefore] easy to command.”

Remember the cheer” We like it, we love it… we want some more of it!

Or if not, how about the line in the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist?

Please, sir… I want some more“.

Alabama obviously likes it, and hasn’t gotten a bellyful yet.

Again… apply the circular logic of:

“largely poor, uneducated, and easy to command.”

(Board Of Education) BOE cuts local funded teacher units

Posted: Thursday, May 8, 2014 6:00 am

The Lawrence County Board of Education continued to take steps to solidify the county’s financial footing Monday night, eliminating five certified positions in an effort to cut the number of locally funded teacher units.

Superintendent Heath Grimes said more cuts could be on the horizon.

“We have to start focusing on building our financial reserves and this is one step in doing that,” he said. “We’ve been working closely with the state Board of Education to get a plan in place to build a one-month operating reserve and this is one of the suggest measures.”

Lawrence County’s one-month operating cost is roughly $3.2 million. Grimes said the board has $1.5 million in reserve.

“It’s important to understand that, yes, we are Read the rest of this entry »

Stereophonic Headphone Types

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, October 23, 2009

In today’s Huntsville Times, under the “Law & Order” section, subhead “The police beat,” on page A4, a brief article enumerated the names and ages of 17 women arrested “Wednesday in a citywide prostitution sting.” Police Public Information Officer Sergeant Mark Roberts shared the area of concentration and locations of the arrests. The article stated that “all the women have been booked in the Madison County Jail,” and “charged with soliciting prostitution.”

From a social perspective, I can’t help but imagine the women probably have histories of physical, sexual and drug abuse. I further conjecture – based upon historical sociological data – that they were probably seeking to support a drug habit.

What interested me, however, were their names.

The women ranged in age from 20-49, and no pictures were published, and no data concerning their ethnicity was made, though the authorities doubtless photographed and documented it.

Here, for your perusal are the names and ages of the women arrested.

Readers are encouraged to draw their own conclusions.

Mandie Darlene Anderson – 24
Dawn Pruitt Collins – 49
Tanisha Kachelle Johnson – 29
Stephanie Ineke Salters Rahim – 24
Tanisha Wrenet Page – 34
Rachel York Morehouse – 23
Amber Sue Pearson – 24
Vickie Marie Brown – 35
Crystal Renee Kemper – 33
Kymberly Ellis Clinard – 38
Teresa Gail Stevenson – 35
Mary Shanna Williams – 30
Nichole Ross Barnett – 26
Chasity Michelle Skipworth – 35
Latasha Lashun James – 33
Bethani Amber Hosch – 20
Sue Ann Kinney Branch – 45

Now that you’ve hopefully drawn your own conclusions, see if you were right!
