Have your cake, or eat it. Take your pick!

Why is it that the public school curriculum is not good enough for this kid, but the public school sports teams are? If the board lets home-schooled kids into public school sports, where does it stop? Next, they'll have to let these kids into the band, cheer leading squad, etc.

LibDem -- Amazon order processing centers are not the same thing as shipment fulfillment warehouses. If an Amazon sales center in Kansas processes the order and then passes it off to a fulfillment center in TN to ship, why should the TN resident have to pay tax? Additionally, what if the TN resident was charged tax and then the item was not available in the TN warehouse and had to be shipped from the Atlanta warehouse?

Pure and simple, Amazon is not processing sales from TN, they are only fulfilling orders from TN.

It doesn't matter what might or might not have happened to football players, ROTC members, or even band members. If the cheerleaders and their parents agreed to the cheerleading charter at the start of the season, they should be fully prepared to be held to the standards of it at any given time, at the sole discretion of the faculty sponsor, with complete support from the administration.

Kelly Peterson & Mark Bean did the right thing! Good for them that they did not let litigious threats sway their decision! Other schools could learn from this.

Good riddance! My guess is that the public voted with their dollars and decided to stop supporting that awful place!

Now if we could just get the HP management to get rid of all those persistent, pesky people peddling items out of the kiosks all over the mall. It's like running an obstacle course trying to get through all those obnoxious people!

Wow. Simply, wow! Isn't this school board composed of many of the same people who rushed a contract extension through for this guy? I'll be the first to admit, I don't think Scales has done much of anything since he's been here. And he certainly did not deserve $50k/year more than an already worthless superintendent who was on his way out. However, once this guy steps up and finally makes the hard, gutsy decisions that need to be made in order to balance the budget, he puts his own job in jeopardy?! The school board needs to follow suit, making the difficult decisions necessary while keeping priority in the classroom, NOT the central office. Just imagine how the voters will react during the next election when they decide whether or not to re-elect a board member who stood in the way of common sense and fiscal responsibility!

Bravo! Someone found a way to turn student loans into quasi-secured debt. This may discourage so many people from defaulting on them (or even borrowing in the first place).

"Xmas" is not a way of taking Christ out of Christmas. "X" is a way of abbreviating "Christ" that has it's origins in Greek letters, and goes back to the Emperor Constantine.

However, those looking for a way to brainwash others into sharing their viewpoint will use general ignorance of this subject to their advantage.

I wish that signatures from residents in the planned annexation areas could be counted as valid.
