This not so smart person needs to be fined to the max!!! To bad you can't give a ticket for being stupid. This type of person would do the same thing to a child. Thank you FPD.
The North Callaway school district is to be commended for the success of their alternative school program. The administrators in the North Callaway district realize how important this program is to serve the needs of students unlike the administrators of the Fulton Public school who closed Fulton's alternative school. There are students in every district that could benefit from this type of program. It makes me wonder if the administrators of the FPS believe that these students are not important or that other "things" are more important.
It's always nice to read about good things happening in Fulton and this is a great example of the good things. The drawing looks like a very efficient shelter that will be easier to maintain than the present one. I would suggest another important part of a shelter would be an exercise area that could double as a introduction area, where people who are interested in a dog they may want to adopt could meet with the dog. The dogs will behave very differently outside of their kennels and this would give them a chance to put their best paw forward. Ideally, if there is enough room, you could have both of the areas located on opposite sides (ends) of the building. Even the present shelter has an exercise area. I realize that some will say, people will just dump their animals in the pen, but a well lighted area with cameras would discourage the ones among us that do not live up to their responsibilities. If the City of Fulton would like to increase adoption rates these areas are a must and have been proven to work. When the new shelter is built it will an example of good local government at work.
I hope both of you young ladies had a great day at the state championships and a better day tomorrow. You make Fulton proud of both of you. You are the epitome of what high school sports are all about. Thank you.
What a great service you do. I hope you find eight great homes and have a waiting list for more.
Here is a story of a Pitbull saving a women's life from a train. Not many other breeds would do this. now.msn.com/now/0509-dog-saves-owner.aspx
According to the KOMU article the Fulton PD "became aware Ivory's pet pitbull. The police released one resident of the house to take control and lock up the dog. The resident wanted to lock the dog up in its kennel in the basement, but police wanted the dog outside." This sounds like the FPD wanted the dog outside so they could shoot it. Chief Meyers needs to send these poor shooting officers to shooting classes before they get hurt in a shoot out with someone that shoots back. Just picture the cops running around your neighbor's house shooting at the neighbor's dog until they kill it. I'm sure everyone in Mr. Ivory's neighborhood feels much safer knowing that those that "Serve and Protect" have done such a bang up job. Can someone explain why the puppies have to be killed?

I have no kids in school and I don't hang out at the schools (people may talk), but I do remember the new principal at the HS Mr. P Whitt talked about doing away with it at least 3-4 months ago. It's nice to see that Mr. P Whitt asked for teacher input and listened. Many times, the people that make the changes in schools ask for very little if any input from the teachers who have to implement the changes. Who are these people? They are very little people that would serve no purpose in education except giving out meaningless drivel to ones really involved in the educational process. Educational changes like scheduling,etc. are cyclic like a big pendulum. Some time down the road some fool again will come along and say, wow, lets do block scheduling because it is the best way and so as DD would say, the cycle will be repeated,again and again. Bottom line, block scheduling is gone (for now).
