The famously–cracked 2,000 pound pealer left Philadelphia on seven trips between 1885 and 1915. Each time it came home with more cracks. It turned out the men hired to guard the Bell were taking liberties, literally: chipping off pieces and selling them as souvenirs.
Cheering crowds greeted the Bell in Atlanta. A two–mile parade took it to Piedmont Park, where 50,000 people lined up to see it.
Brennan is also a little shy but warms up quickly and has really learned to trust people again. He gets along great with other dogs and is actually learning to play and clown around with the others at ‘recess’ time. He is housetrained and has impeccable house manners!

If you have the love and patienct to give this sweet boy, he will reward you with years of loyal devotion But beware….when you take this stunning dog for a walk EVERYONE you meet will stop you and ask what breed he is….his markings are so striking!
You find a sweeter boy who loves to play with his foster dog buddies but mostly, loves his guardians who can’t say enough good things about him. Dexter is very smart and responds well to training. He knows a few basic commands, and is good at coming to you when called. He loves to play with the other dogs but he also has learned to be calm in the house when its time to settle down. He will be a great companion for anyone who loves to go on walks, runs, or just hanging out.
Five Questions for Carter at the Debate in Perry Tonight
During tonight’s debate in Perry, GA, liberal Democrat Jason Carter’s “gift of gab” will be on full display. While we can expect Carter to lash out at Governor Deal with baseless attacks and worn-out rhetoric from the Democratic playbook, Georgia voters are really looking for answers to these 5 questions:
Jason Carter voted for three of Governor Deal’s budgets but accuses the Governor of “underfunding education.” In what world does that logic make sense?
Jason Carter promised to release a report after touring the state with his “Education Task Force.” Where’s the report and what did Carter propose in the State Senate to improve education?
On the campaign trail, Jason Carter criticizes Governor Deal on the same economic policies that made Georgia #1 for business. Why did Carter vote for this “grab bag of economic incentives” if he thought they were so bad for Georgia’s economy?
With respect to Georgia’s official boundaries, the proclamation expanded Georgia’s southern boundary by giving the colony all lands between the Altamaha and St. Marys rivers. Previously, the Altamaha had served as Georgia’s southern boundary.
So, the impact of the Proclamation of 1763 was to set Georgia’s official southern boundary as the St. Marys River from its mouth to the headwaters, then north to the Altamaha River, then north to the headwaters of that river, and then westward to the Mississippi River. Georgia’s northern boundary was the Savannah River from its mouth to its headwaters.
Republicans have fresh ideas and bottom-up, sensible solutions to our country’s problems. But we must make our case to the American people: that a Republican Senate Majority is critical to renewing American principles and getting our country on the right track.
Here are the Republican Party’s Principles for American Renewal
Constitution: Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored.
Economy: We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.
Budget/Debt: We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt.
Healthcare: We need to start over with real healthcare reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.
Veterans: Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.
Security: Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders.
Education: Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.
Poverty: The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work.
Values: Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty, and hard work.
Energy: We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.
Immigration: We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.
Question: Why did liberal Democrat Jason Carter vote for three of Governor Nathan Deal’s budgets but voted against this year’s budget that added half a billion dollars in education funding?
“Here’s the way the budgeting process works in Atlanta. And this is why I believe it is broken. The budget passes unanimously every year, so the idea that all of the sudden it’s strange that I voted for the budgets is, the folks who know, know that that’s a hollow attack.” PTA Advocacy Day, October 2, 2014
He also said:
“You gotta have a budget. But I led that task force on education, and I went out there and sat with teachers and educators in rural Georgia, and saw the impact of the cuts. And after you’ve done that, after you’ve talked to people I could not justify voting for that budget ever again.” AJC, September 16, 2014
Former secretary of state says governor has ‘earned’ second term
Speaking at a Women for Deal rally today at the state Capitol, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel endorsed Gov. Nathan Deal for re-election, citing his strong record of accomplishments and the need for his future leadership.
“I’m supporting Governor Deal because there is far too much at stake in this election for Georgia,” said Handel. “There’s just too much at stake to let the past take priority over the future of our state. Governor Deal has done a good job and, as a result, has earned my support for a second term as governor of this great state.”
Handel pointed out that, under Gov. Deal, Georgia has created nearly 300,000 private sector jobs and is ranked No. 1 by three different entities as the best place to do business.
“Governor Deal brings the experience, maturity and track record to ensure that Georgia continues to be a great place to live and work and raise a family,” Handel said. “In the next four years, I know he’ll continue to keep taxes low, (more…)
