    A big reason, out of the few, that prompted our move northerly was the fact that my daughter moved my grandchildren to Blue Ridge. From what I have seen and heard my opinion about Olivia's school in particular is positive.

    Any idea whether this is likely to pass the board?

    Great question.

    Is there anyone here on the forum from Fannin County who might have an insight on that?

    Perhaps the best paragraph in that article:

    In a letter explaining his support, Fannin Superintendent Michael Gwatney wrote, “Emergencies do occur, though, and just like a defibrillator, a tourniquet, or a fire extinguisher, a firearm is – at its core – a tool. The spirit of board policy…is to create an opportunity for certain trained volunteer personnel to use that tool to stop – or at least minimize – the damage being done by one who has complete disregard for human life, as well as society’s laws, and is inappropriately using a weapon to harm or kill others.

    This superintendent understands.

    I always liked it up in the Blue Ridge area and almost bought a house up in McCaysville not too long ago, but decided against it since we will eventually move out to "flyover" country. But, if I were to stay here in Georgia, then I sure as hell would be going up north.

    I am just so sick and tired of this race narrative.

    Even if there were, I doubt most teachers would feel that threatened by an unarmed teenager/child of any race over there.
