The butterflies and I thank you. Were you able to accomplish this all by yourselves without a million dollar Federal grant? Well then more power to you. You must have done it for the LOVE and not for the MONEY.
After reading Lonnie Ballard's comments in the Bethel article...............I've heard all I need to know about his managerial competence and expertise. Another bow tie bearer. Two strikes.............
Most folks are so lazy that they wouldn't walk across a 5-land road anyway. They would drive. Fo Sho.
Is anybody else but me concerned about the word "OWNER" in the picture of the sign that says "Bethel Housing Complex.........Bethel AME Church Owner" ???
Oldguy, re-do your math son. That's almost $110,000 per UNIT!! How old are these units? How many years did it take to destroy them to the point that they needed refurbishment (if in fact the do NEED it versus just looking for a new influx of government money.....)?

I could do pretty good, too if I get millions of dollars of cash influx every few years from federal, state, and local sources. I could do real good. I might even be able to afford to drive a high end BMW or Mercedez-Benz. I wouldn't touch a Jaguar, though. It depreciates much too fast. Of course, who cares since I'll be getting a few more million in a couple more years.
The economic reality of this world is "Whatever you subsidize, you get more of it". Want more jobs and job growth? Subsidize small business. That's Something for Something. Want more people living in poverty? Subsidize housing, give away food, phones, etc. That's Something for Nothing.
This is the same logic used by the renouned Super Genius Nancy Pelosi when she argues that giving out extended "Unemployment Benefits" actually makes money for the government.
