Testifying in the Geoge Zimmerman trial, prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel, 19, who says she was on the phone with Trayvon Martin before he was shot, explained that Martin told her that a “creepy ass cracker” was following him. According to Jeantel, Martin was worried that Zimmerman was a rapist, and said to “stop playing with him like that.” He also told Jeantel, she said, that the “n—– is now following him.”

Maybe that part "the “n—– is now following him.” says it all... right before he attacked ZIMMERMAN!

Detroit may be alone among the nation’s biggest cities in terms of filing for bankruptcy, but it is far from the only city being crushed by a roiling mountain of long-term debt.

At the heart of Detroit’s problem is a growing unfunded debt on benefits owed to current and future retirees — some $3.5 billion, according to its emergency manager, Kevyn Orr — which mirrors a circumstance being seen across the U.S. From Baltimore to Los Angeles, and many points in between, municipalities are increasingly confronted with how to pay for these massive promises. The Pew Center for the States, in Washington, estimated states’ public pension plans across the U.S. were underfunded by a whopping $1.4 trillion in 2010.

The condition of Darling Field is a testimony of Mayor King's term - poor planning, poor upkeep, and poor execution with a long list of excuses why someone else is responsible for the problem.

The Gloversville School District Buildings and Grounds Department is not short-staffed. Every hour that certain people spend riding around town in a truck, taking extended coffee and lunch breaks, or surfing the Internet could be spent maintaining the facilities and grounds that we constituents support through our tax dollars. It's simply and obviously not a priority to the district's leaders, who don't live in our community and who don't invest in our future.

Why should Darling field look better than the rest of the city?? There are a few people trying but the rest of the city's population needs to show a little "hometown pride". It is not always a costly thing to do.

JEERS to the excuses, there is only one reason why Darling Field is not properly maintained, no pride in their work. It is an excuse to say "short handed" it is a reason to not do it instead of stepping up to the job. It is what we hear from unions with every crisis. For once in your life... go work your job, step up to the task. Take some pride in your work.
