Seize the entire town with state powers of eminent domain.

Bulldoze the entire four blocks.

Make it the new NMB central park with a nice monument in the center to its black heritage; fly a Qwanza flag equal in size to what ever size the confederate flag is at the state house.

Send all the politicians from AB to the state prison OR have BroBama appoint them to a senior position in his new administration.

Problem solved.

Did the town ever get the money from the loan from Carolyn? I'm trying to understand this deal and don't know the details of why it should be looked at. Please help.

DejaVue - Great info. Something MUST be done to get rid of all the self-serving Council Members. Of all the progress that's going on in MB, not one piece of construction or progress has happened in Atlantic Beach. The area has looked the same for 40 years. Charles Williams, you have a lot of support for what you've tried to do with a the AB Council Members. Retha Pierce & Donnell Thompson are a thorn in your side and I hope they get what's coming to them. The two of them are working together to run you away. Don't fall for the BS. Stay focused. Remember - TOUGH LOVE

Don't think the town received the $200,000 she is suing for. Remember, Carolyn Denise Cole-Montgomery at the time of the alledged loan was in control of the town financial records (being town manager)and at the same time she was the chief operator of the Tyson Beach Group with the control of those financial records and check book in both case.Classic case of the Fox guarding the Hen house.Smart money would bet the town didn't get all the money.
