the grass is wet with dew.

Radical Transformation 
of America coming to
your neighborhood.


Local churches and
Family Promise willing
partners in Obama's
plan to radically transform
America and control your
health care, education
and now your neighborhood.

Albany's politicians are
willing partners in this
tyranny - rushing to
rezone and reassess the

Suburbs are next.

Why is a city riddled with
potholes, a welfare mecca
on the verge of bankruptcy
rushing to radically transform
local zoning and implement
property tax reassessment?

Here is the answer:




An informed electorate 
casting informed votes is
the key to your survival
the survival of Albany
America and our Constitutional

Pay attention. Vote smart!

The City DGS provided the wheel barrows
shovels, rakes and gravel.

Sheriff Apple provided the inmate work
crew who provided the labor.

Monday and Tuesday  the inmates did
an excellent job resurfacing the paths
on the South and East parts of the park.

The City DGS will complete the path
resurfacing from the picnic area to the
children's  play area.

This is the first phase of  our effort
to improve Buckingham Pond Park.

Refer to earlier posts to see the agenda
for the remainder of the summer.

This project shows how the County
and City can work together and how
community service for non-violent
offenders can benefit both the
community and inmates.

Thanks to Bob Minard and George
of City DGS, Mayor Sheehan,
Sheriff Apple, the inmates and officers.

From Officer Brooks:
Neighborhood Advisory:
Recent Burglary
Location: Kakely St
Time/Date: 6/30/15 745a-145p
Type of Entry: forced open locked rear door
Items Taken: credit cards
Suspect: unknown
NOTE: Attention all neighborhood residents who received the email. I can not express this enough, it is imperative that you be familiar with your neighbors and communicate with them. Know their vehicles, and or their routines. The reason I am stating this, while the officers were investigating the burglary, they were doing a neighborhood canvass. During that canvass it was discovered that the neighbors noticed two unknown vehicles in the area and an unknown male looking into household windows on Kakely, during the daytime hours of the same date of the burglary. What upsets me the most is that Kakely is a small street with limited vehicular usage and is some what a close knit neighborhood street. The residents noticed suspicious vehicles and a person and NO ONE CALLED the police.  What I'm trying to say is that "IF You See Something Say Something", call the police if you see anything/anyone suspicious in your neighborhood.   
If anyone has any questions/concerns feel free to contact me.
