re: Reporters are garbage - winkchance
Imagine thinking reporters aren’t vital to democracy. Realizing they are mostly yellow journalists with a complete bias and little professionalism and not interested in informing the population - just trying to argue about non-issues to be a pain in the asp. ...

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
"15 percent of the families and staff would have left had he continued with the suggestions from Brandao" Yeah, those %15 were the ones not paying tuition and had no teaching credentials. Again, you have no idea what you are talking about....

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
You really are speaking of an issue without any knowledge. I was there when Brandao was there and he immediately engaged parents about what they wanted from the school. He improved the technology and actually instituted an employee handbook that had never existed before. He tried to create a normal ...

re: Does BR cancel the parade? Officially postponed for now - winkchance
Dip shite probably will, because having a group of people outside in the open air will be bad, but forcing them all inside into bars and restaurants with central air will be better to contain a virus....

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
" And what's unbelievable is that just a six months or so ago none of us had any idea that the school was in trouble. This is surreal." I think a lot of people knew the school was in trouble 7-8 years ago. If not then, if you had any meetings with parents and Brandao, you had a feeling that he wa...

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
Brandao was uncovering the financial shite show, engaging parents, and fixing many of the lacking SOP. The people who had the most to lose (The owners pets and the unqualified) raised hell. If they kept Brandao, there would be a school preparing to educate children next year....

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
The year of the flood, I knew a family that had paid for the next year and moved their kid to another school. They figured Runnels was doomed (and they were) and realized they had taken a risk paying in advance. They knew they could not get their payment back because the school was planning to reope...

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
He refused to open his books to anything. he opposed any action that might improve the reputation of the school that might require someone to look at the books. Several reasons for this 1. how he paid staff - not based on qualifications. There was no rhyme or reason, just his personal preference. 2....

re: Runnels School Closing - Not Just High School - winkchance
Shame he strung these families along for a decade. The school was failing financially long before the flood. The flood gave him an excuse and a way to try to salvage something with donations but it was not enough. It just allowed him the opportunity to blame the flood instead of his poor management ...

re: 1year in Baton Rouge, no bike scares. Then 3 of them today. - winkchance
Anyone choosing to ride a bike on roadways where cars exceed 35 mph shows signs of narcissistic insanity. The same people would never jog in the lanes of traffic on Jefferson Hwy but somehow riding a 50 lb bike at 18 mph makes the danger everyone else's fault....

re: St. George having its day in court in minutes - winkchance
This will strain the City’s ability to fund BRPD and BRFD specifically. Why are they using funds for BRFD and BRPD from areas that BRFD and BRPD do not cover? You will see sheriff deputies downtown Baton Rouge. You will never see BR PD in Shenandoah (unless they live there) I have never seen B...

re: Did Skip lose this many midweek games to instate schools? - winkchance
You still have zero facts or data to support the Skip lost fewer midweek games. I have seen several stats that proved that he lost at least 4-5 times against instate schools, in fact it looks like McNeese and NW whipped him every year almost. This also does not count the losses to teams like Lamar a...
