(Yawn.....) More corporate glop. Mom & Pop restaurants always outservice, outpace, and out-taste the cookie cutters. The key isn't in the food, however: without prompt and courteous service (a faltering commodity in Albany), this place is doomed.
Sure wish they would consider moving this event to the first weekend in November. Would love to participate in this festival, but October is already full for vendors.
Mardi Gras organizers: Are you listening?? You're next, unless you take serious measures...........
Re: last week's MSNBC article regarding American cities mired in an "unrelenting recession" status (i.e., no short or log term recovery planned or anticipated), Albany was #1 on that listing.
Fat: I'm sure you are referring to the event held by the city. The others are funded internally. The city's event DOES need to be terminated as it would save funds, and people can go to the other listed events in SW Georgia.
The problem with these events (and event-driven churches) is that they are disturbingly self-serving and compromising to worldly standards. The two largest problems facing the church are apostacy in the pulpit, and apathy in the pew. If these institutions are malleable to the world's conformity, then what separates the church from being the "salt and light" that it's called to be?
Just goes to show how far our society has drifted from the Judeo-Christian foundation of our country. Look at how our governmental leaders proliferate envy due to a direct violation of the Tenth Commandment.
Sorry, sglenn, but the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. As long as the county's citizenry expects caps on property values and limited taxation, issues such as EMS privatization must be addressed. Now, the manner in which the Commission handled this matter can surely be questioned. The new company, however must be allowed to review the records of current personnel and rehire based upon their criteria and requirements, not public opinion.
(Yawn......) A no-brainer. No reason to continue to operate this facility in an area where industry is on life support at best.
Chinaberry: The problem you mentioned already exists, especially amongst the food vendors. On Saturday, you will witness vendors from NC, SC, AL, and FL in the food area. Locals with local ties are routinely shut out or marginalized at these events.
