A man named Janks Morton made a documentary called "What Black Men Think" in 2008. I watched this on satillite TV, documentary channel. This should be required viewing by all of Albany. I am going to find out how to get copies to groups here in town. He has made a new one called "Men II Boys". Bubba redneck DA will not like these docs.

Speaking of Taxes: Ga. assessors ordered to pay homeowner $160,000 The Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ga. — A judge has ordered Columbus tax assessors to pay nearly $160,000 to a homeowner to cover legal costs of his property-tax appeal that dragged on nearly five years.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports (http://bit.ly/14GtIJV ) city attorney Clifton Fay says he will talk with the Board of Assessors about whether they want to appeal the ruling.

Superior Court Judge William Rumer says the assessors owe Gunby Garrard $159,814. Records show Garrard bought his 9,000-square-foot home in 2006 from his parents for $800,000. He appealed after the property was assessed for tax purposes at about $2 million.

The Assessors board ended up taking the case to Superior Court, where a three-day trial. The judge ruled assessors should have taken into account the decline in Columbus property values between 2007 and 2009.
