The motto for Houston County Georgia schools in 2010 is "Building an Education for all Students". On average, the public schools in Houston County GA have scored better on the Georgia Education Scoreboard than the state as a whole.  The scoreboard  is a state-wide indicator of whether the district is meeting state education goals.  Among other things, it tracks graduation rates, on-track rates, and science achievement.The Houston County GA school system has worked hard to improve Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores over the past decade.  Below are the 2009 SAT figures for the county.  For complete details on what the SAT is, why it is used, and for specific school statistics for a previous school year, visit the Governor's Office of Student Achievement.     School Math 2009 Reading 20...

I'm not American, nor am I overly patriotic, but after listening to my husband yesterday, and hearing his voice crack as he told me his story, his words hit a chord with me. You see, my husband is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant and a current Civil Servant on Robins Air Force Base and like well over 10,000 of the base populace, he was standing out on the street yesterday morning waiting for a Fallen Angel (a troop killed in action) burial procession to pass by. He, nor any of the others, were ordered to be outside, they chose to "be in-place" in honor of a fallen comrade.  U.S. Marine Corporal Stephen "Cody" Sockalosky, stationed at Camp Lejeun in North Carolina, was killed in action in Afghanistan Oct 6th.  The young soldier hailed from Cordele GA, just down the road from us. I ca...

What do murder, suicide, paranormal activity, sexual deviation, cult activity, famous adulteries and divorces, misfortune, violent crimes, and AIDS (see note), have in common?   All have the potential to ruin a real estate deal because of the public perception associated with being a stigmatized property.  According to the National Association of Realtors®, stigmatized properties "are homes where a real or rumored event occurred that didn't physically affect the property but could adversely impact its desirability".  Since Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware) has been the generally accepted property law doctrine for buying pre-existing homes in the U.S. (exceptions include seller hiding material defects or making misrepresentations), does the seller have to disclose the non-material sti...

I have been looking for a good clone/backup software ever since my laptop hard drive crashed last month and the Microsoft pre-installed backup/restore utility was unable to recover my data.  I was fortunate enough to run across an AR blog post by Dusty Carr that mentioned Acronis as a good cloning tool.  I did my research, compared the product with other software, and ended up purchasing a copy of Acronis True Image Home 2011.   After using the Acronis software for the last 2 weeks, I absolutely love it!  I was able to clone my existing laptop (OS, settings, files...EVERYTHING) in just under an hour onto an external hard drive.  I then loaded that image on my backup laptop in under 30 minutes.  Within 90 minutes I had 2 identical PCs and an "extra" copy of my system/files on the externa...
