In reply to: Huckaby says he won't whine about budget cuts »

December 11, 2012

This is supposed to be a spokesperson for the university ? What a jerk! Do you think the head of DOT is complaining about cuts in his budget ? There was once a vision that higher education was good for the state. We looked to Virginia and North Carolina as examples of what an educated workforce can do for an economy.

This vision has changed in Georgia. Quality is no longer important, just the product. Turn out the graduates as fast as possible. It make no difference what they know (or don't know). Do this as cheaply as possible. Somehow this is good ?

Vacant classrooms are a function of the reduction in the number of teachers. Many have left GA for better situations. When they leave, they are not replaced. Teachers that remain are teaching more than ever.

Huckaby was appointed following the model of Adams to make sure there were no complaints as the University of Georgia is allowed to wither away. Sopunds like the politicians found their boy !

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
