Perugino: What fiscal cliffs?

What the "heck" is a fiscal cliff and where is it? Do we have one in Newton County? Apparently we don't know because we are being lead around by the nose with glazed over eyes by politicians in Washington away from the real fall down into financial ruin of our country. President Obama and Harry Reid have become masters at strategy who utilizes magic tricks to focus our attention on the Bill they have spun up to supposedly handle our financial crisis at this moment, all the while we creep ever closer to the abyss that we can't ...

A voice on the line

When the student body moved into the building that now houses Newton High School, every classroom had a phone. Those phones hung on the wall, and, in theory, a teacher could call the office if he or she had a question or discipline problem. He could also call another classroom or the library. Supposedly, a teacher could dial some special number and make an announcement that would be broadcast over the loud speaker throughout the school. A principal certainly never answered a call from the classroom, even in an emergency. You might get a secretary who could try to find ...
