Citizen_A 1 year, 6 months ago on Murfree lacks board support for contract renewal

Definitely worried his job is in jeopardy.....kind looks like a groupie between nominating Mufree for Sup of the year, and begging people for support.

J.W. and Mormonism are not cults...One of the main characteristics of cults is that cults dissolve when the founding leader dies...I can't speak for the J.W's, but how do you explain 14.4 million Mormons, and counting worldwide. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints may not be what is considered a traditional Christian religion, but if people will really take a open-minded look at what we do in our communities, they might be surprised. The Albany LDS were major contributors to volunteer/relief for the Flood of '94 and other area disasters. And during the next one, the helping hand you receive just might be a "Mormon Helping Hand".

You would think that almost 175 years later the "Mormon Cult" talk would end. We don't make or force anyone to join. Those looking into the church are asked, after a series of lessons, to offer up a heartfelt prayer asking if the dicision is right.

I won't be getting my hopes up...And if the bow tie doesn't get them the "I smell something rotten in Denmark" look will....

Thanks, Bulldawg....Although I do have a very good job, I am not wealthy by any means. I am just sick of everyone looking at those who are wealthy, and blaming them because they aren't. Why are they to blame just because they have wealth. I know some are born into it, but you have to do something to keep it. Sitting on your butt spending doesn't keep you wealthy. People need to quit coveting the wealth, and get off their butts and better their own lives. Most wealthy people that I do know will tell you that, although being able to afford some of the finer things in life is nice, there is more work and responsibility to managing the wealth than people realize.

The wealthy do not make the poor... I don't know about others out there, but my lack of wealth is noone's responsibility but mine. You have to put forth the effort and work. People can't sit on their posteriors, collecting handouts, and expect to get wealthy. It doesn't work that way. But God knows there are many out there trying.

Citizen_A 1 year, 6 months ago on Murfree nominated for GSSA Superintendent of Year

So we should sweep the dirt under the rug, and fool companies into coming to Albany? We have had industry here, then move out. I am sure the unqualified workforce had a part in industries passing on Albany. Where you have unqualified workforce, other symptoms are to follow. As my husband says, sometimes the truth hurts.

I wonder if any superintendent can get nominated, but have to pass the panel to get any further...which probably tells us that the panel got a good chuckle also....

I can't stop shaking my head and laughing... I'd be really ticked if I was the other nominees. It makes them look bad!

Citizen_A 1 year, 6 months ago on Albany may impose 6 p.m. events curfew (updated)

I understand the underlying intention for this curfew....to curtail the "Riff-Raff" (I am calling it that since the gangs aren't the only ones who can ruin an event) that causes the problems. What they fail to understand is that the Riff-Raff causing problems are not first generation Riff-Raff. Otherwise we wouldn't be having the problem to begin with.

Citizen_A 1 year, 7 months ago on Heard: Lack of discipline major school problem

Heard has done nothing but restate what every squawker on the Albany Herald website has been saying for forever. Does that make him any more qualified than us squawkers? Not really....Intelligent people won't need you telling who them vote for.
