Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Today let’s fling Fido and Fluffy’s stuff.  It’s time to fling those too small collars and bowls, treats that the cat just will not eat and the frayed leashes. If you have supplies from a long gone pet, like an aquarium or a hamster habitat, today is the day to let those go.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many pet supplies you were able to fling today.

 

Georgia College student receives National Science Foundation award

Georgia College student receives National Science Foundation award

Three years of research on how plants respond to their environment has led Georgia College senior Anne Zimmerman to be recognized among the top science students in the country. She was awarded the prestigious honor of being a part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

"I am thrilled to receive this fellowship with NSF," said Zimmerman. "I had no idea my proposal was accepted until I got an email of congratulations from my future graduate school. Then I checked the list online and saw my name was included. Apparently my email from NSF had gone to my spam folder, so to say I was excited and thrilled for this opportunity is an understatement."

Report cards for Georgia schools released

ATLANTA (AP) - State education officials say Georgia's elementary and middle schools improved overall during the last two years. But high schools on average are struggling to boost their students' performance.

That's according to new data released on Monday. The state is releasing two years of scores for school districts, including an update to previously released 2012 numbers.

The original 2012 numbers were the result of a similar system, rating schools on a scale of 100.

24-hour batting cage opens in Milledgeville


Four baseball and softball dads started an indoor 24-hour batting cage in Milledgeville. They say it's the first of it's kind in the area and want people to be able to practice whenever they can.

A little rain didn't stop the Georgia Force 16 and under softball team from practicing. On Saturday they played indoors for the first time at Milledgeville's "Between the Lines" batting cage that opened in early April.

Coach Walter Greene says he likes that it's open 24 hours a day and is local. "There's never been anything like this really here in Milledgeville. And I know a lot of people they go to McDonough, they go to Marietta, they go to Byron, Warner Robins, Covington," said Greene.

Four baseball and softball dads, who coach, pooled their money together to open it. "We have four cages set up right now 70-footer, two 55s, and a 35 footer," said Spencer Bass, co-owner.
