The other school that may find themselves right on the cusp of changing classes could be Commerce. At a strict 22%, they would be the 2nd largest school remaining in Class A. Depending upon where the cutoffs are finally drawn, they could find themselves on the move up (or could even potentially ask to play up)posted @ Wednesday, November 13, 2013 - 17:33

Probably worth reminding fans that, as a region champion, PACS will be seeded higher than the #8 power rating. Barring unexpected changes on appeals, they'll be the 5th seed in the private bracket.posted @ Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 20:05

"she worried about the Classic Center being able to pay back the cost of a failed project and the community being saddled with the resulting debt. “Our government has to back this cost,” she said."
Didn't want the community to be saddled with the resulting debt? Umm ... exactly who does this (expletive deleted) think provides the government with its funds? Santa Claus?
So help me, Congress looks sane next to the ACC Mayor & Commission.posted @ Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 08:53

"A win this week could mean a swing in momentum in the Titans’ favor."
And would be extremely impressive considering North Oconee isn't involved in this game at all.
Proofreading, a dead art. Hopefully there's at least someone with enough dignity left at the ABH to be embarrassed about this sort of thing, especially when it happens so frequently that it could be turned into a drinking game.posted @ Friday, September 20, 2013 - 00:24

@Shine: Wasn't Henderson there through '95? If so, I'm guessing that's how the article came up with 6. 5 coaching _changes_, but 6 coaches.posted @ Saturday, August 17, 2013 - 09:49
Not to take anything away from Gunn's remarkable tenure, but I believe the list at the end of the story has one rather notable omission: Larry Campbell has been at Lincoln County since 1972, still there as far as I'm aware (despite some rumors to the contrary a few months ago). That puts him on the job by more than a decade longer than anyone mentioned in the list, including the venerable Coach Godfrey.posted @ Saturday, August 17, 2013 - 00:11
Maybe they'd prefer "the two guys at RB until something better comes along"?
If they seriously have an issue with the nickname, the easiest way to relegate it to history would be for one of them to step up & win the job outright.posted @ Thursday, August 1, 2013 - 19:28
Interesting (maybe) to note that I hadn't heard anything at all about this story until the founder decides to, well, whine about the reaction to it.
Reality is that you're known, at least in part, by the company you keep. That such an employee was part of the operation IS a reflection on the organization, like it or not.
What determines the long-term impact of the story on Petzone is how they react to it. And frankly, this particular reaction isn't encouraging in the least.posted @ Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 22:57

@jonathanwallace: So instead of "incorporate well water into regulations", the intent sounds more like "incorporate well water information into the available data"?
That does put a significantly different spin on it, I appreciate the feedback.
