Jumping on tragedy

By   /  April 2, 2012  /  Outlook  /  Comments Off

Tweet     Trayvon Martin was just 17 years old when he was allegedly gunned down by George Zimmerman.  Based on information available in the media, it seems like a pretty cut and dried case.  I will allow that the media may not have, or may not have released, the whole story and I’m not [...]

Sometimes, you’ve just got to pick a fight

Tweet       I was speaking with someone by phone who wants to try and make a positive change here in Albany.  She said to me that she didn’t want to stir up anything and that she thought she could make the local officials change their minds about something through positive discussion.  I applaud [...]

Past time to scrap the sign ordinance

By   /  March 19, 2012  /  Outlook  /   Comments

Tweet     Tom Gieryic doesn’t seem a likely poster boy.  He’s a mechanic by trade, and a small business owner in one of the poorest communities in the nation.  However, when Code Enforcement cited him over an American flag, it reignited a firestorm that has surrounded Albany’s controversial sign ordinance for years now. The [...]

Quit blaming the citizens

By   /  March 13, 2012  /  Outlook  /   Comments

Tweet     I’m getting tired of it.  I’m getting rather sick of the attitude some officials espouse, blaming the people of Albany – and often times their “attitude” – for Albany being in its current state.  The most recent incident comes via a WFXL report where EDC head Ted Clem is quoted as saying, [...]

How ‘Going green’ could lower electric bills

Tweet       I’m a free market kind of guy.  While I’m sympathetic to the environmental movement in a lot of ways, I find much of what they want is borderline ridiculous at best.  One thing we’ve been hearing for years is that “conservation” is a good thing.  Well, the good folks at Water, [...]

Hard times requires us to pull together

Tweet   Anyone who thinks this economy isn’t so bad is a complete moron.  I’m going to go ahead and say that right there.  To say it’s not bad for them may be a different matter entirely, but for the vast majority of Americans, it’s pretty bad.  Albany is getting hit harder than most, and [...]

Endorsement for the GOP Primary

Tweet     As we get closer to time for the Georgia GOP Primary, I’ve decided to issue a formal endorsement.  It might not mean a whole lot to some folks, and I have little doubt many of you will disagree, but I’m throwing my support, and my vote, behind Ron Paul. Ron Paul is [...]

We need a bad guy here

Tweet     I love this town.  I’ve tried for years to not love it, but I really do.  I have hopes and dreams that all revolve around this town.  I have a son who was born here.  I have a daughter on the way that will be born here.  My wife was born here, [...]

So close, and yet so far away

By   /  February 8, 2012  /  News, Outlook  /  Comments Off

Tweet     Monday night, I heard a political official come as close to the truth of what the problem is in Albany than any other time in my life.  Mayor Dorothy Hubbard came oh-so-close to putting her finger on the problems in the Good Life City, but still was able to miss it by [...]

ASU has plenty to account for

By   /  January 30, 2012  /  News, Outlook  /  Comments Off

tomknighton-206x300

Tweet   Albany State University is in a bit of trouble.  The “Historically Black” school apparently admitted students who didn’t meet the minimum standards for the University.  For some, this may not seem like that big of a deal, but with Albany State, it is. ASU, you may recall, made a pretty big deal out [...]
