Watch the forum at 6 pm on Channel 19 this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and you will see the whole story - the T-SPLOST was not pushed at the forum - it was fair and balanced. Many negative "con" issues were also discussed.
Darton has 12 new faculty positions to fill over the next few months and ASU has over 20 new faculty lines - that is over 30 new quality jobs and probably another couple million in economic activity.
Dukes was right but why pay more taxes? What about the gas tax we pay every time we fill up? Is it true that the Republicans have taken that and used it for another purpose? Where does the gas tax go?
One thing left off this news report is the issue of a proposal that started out a bus station and evolved into a multimodal station and then finally, without Commission approval, became a multimodal station with a parking deck. It might be better to buy the current bus station and revamp it as necessary - the city would save money on rent that way.
Some good news - even the naysayers will eat at the Olive Garden and many from out of town will walk it off at the Albany Mall - can't wait for the Buffalo Wild Wings and Dinkin Donuts!
its too bad the Herald missed the whole point of this story - by reducing the pre-term births by half in the served population; the Centering Program saves the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per delivery. hopefully, the program will continue to get a grant to keep it working because it is definitely a win-win situation.
Putting the NCLB law aside is the best thing that has happened to teachers in Georgia in a long time - a Democratic President and a Republican State School Superintendent made it happen!
Having watched "Courageous" yesterday, I have to give Sherwood the benefit of the doubt. They do a lot of good and have been blessed.
the 311 system is a remarkable achievement that allows the City to respond to its citizens more efficiently and effectively. the City of Albany is truly a "trendsetter"
I heard the speeches and I heard Albany outperformed the state as a whole with 1000 new jobs in 2011.
