Burke 1 year, 6 months ago on Jury finds Riggins not guilty

In the end, they were soft on velvet. Did anyone ask if her children filed through the cafeteria and paid for their meals?


Burke 1 year, 7 months ago on Taylor sells city's 5-year plan

Albany, we are suffering the consequences of our collective personal behavior over the past decade. WE MUST become personally responsible for our own actions. That means both fiscally and physically. Mr. Taylor has presented us with evidence of just where Albany is spending her monies. Each and everyone of us is going to have to roll up our sleeves, pull up our pants, and work hard to see our city and county progress. IT CAN BE DONE. $15 million to lock up people is a disgraceful community reality. It is high time we look at the hard cold facts about children having babies, no parents, wandering the streets. It is not nor does it ever represent a glorious way of life. It is a SHAME. It is a disgrace for a young female not to value her own future enough to say NO to some creep that would willfully indulge himself for a moment's pleasure and not to realize that there is more to life than the moment. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY taught in home, the schools, and the church would go a long way to helping us all have a better life. We need to change what we think is "cool" Try looking at the billboard on Pine Avenue selling liquor with a man and woman seductively together entitled "BUMP THE NIGHT AWAY" How about a billboard that shows a teenage girl in a classroom with HOPE for her future?
