Section 8 made New Ken what it is today!

I also have to agree with Frankie.... I started at the bottom, worked my way to where I am today. took me a long time but worked and continue to work hard to keep it. If you work hard and put forward an honest effort to get ahead you will get there one day. Problem is, once you don't have to work for something the more you want it. I work in section 8 / Projects / government whatever you want to call it. I see and hear it everyday. You really don't want to go there.  (Oct 4, 2008 | post #28)

I love having a mall close bye. the mall is missing something though, I just can't put my finger on it. The out parcels are doing well as earlier mentioned. I think that wall mart might have been a mistake. A church in the mall seems to be a desperate attempt to fill space. I don't know...hard to figure out...  (Oct 4, 2008 | post #48)

I could not agree with you more. It's that time of year again and if you sit outside on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon you might come across the people buying these houses. They ride up and down the streets holding the local real estate books and looking at the houses. Took me a while to figure this out because when someone looks at a house for sale on your street you sort of get relieved to see that they look like a normal family/couple. soon after that the house is sold and you see work being done to it and your like "nice to see someone trying to fix the place up". Then you see the for rent sign go up and then all hell breaks loose. It takes only one house to ruin a neighborhood. Local boroughs need to be more involved with who is buying and renting these homes. Make them more accountable and have stiffer penalties. Unfortunately Projects/low income sites The land is owned by the government and pretty much nothing can be done.  (Apr 30, 2008 | post #10)

SPCA seeks donations for cats rescued in raid

You can quote all you want, believe what you must, it still does not change or help the problem. What do you do to help with it? Reading things from wise men might help you deal with the problems emotionally, but what else does it do? Might lead you in the right direction, but do you believe in just one persons view? I call that narrow minded.  (Apr 30, 2008 | post #34)

Outer Banks to me, is a magical place...

Don't want any of that, loved the place the way it was and still love it. I'm cool with the way you feel, the beach is my boardwalk, I like the small family owned restaurants, they make you feel more welcome. will be down their in june this year and really looking forward to it.  (Apr 12, 2008 | post #6)

What other alternatives are there? I understand it's not the cat's fault but what else can be done. Adoption? that's not the solution. Then what? what do you do? let them live out their life in a cage in the hope that someone will adopt? I don't know the answer, but might have a solution. It might be hard to take but putting these cats down in a humane way, not shooting them might be what is needed.  (Mar 23, 2008 | post #27)

I agree another wal-mart is not needed, but think about this...can this area support this mal with those higher end "unique" shops your talking about? I don't think so. There is not enough money in this area.  (Mar 23, 2008 | post #27)

I have heard that Zamias has a lot of properties that are run down. I understand that he just collects and put nothing back into them. This is a shame, this area has waited so long for this and is a laughing stock of area malls. Yea, I agree the location is great, but the stores are terrible. It's a shame.  (Mar 9, 2008 | post #25)

My family has had the pleasure of vacationing on the outer banks for the past 26 years. It was our first family vacation site. It has a place in my heart like no other place that I have been to. I can remember when rose's was the largest store on the banks. I miss those times. seems life has caught up to the area. We still vacation there and will continue to. just have to move further down the coast to Hatteras to really get away from it all. Lots of memories and fun times. Now I'm bring my kids down and making my own family memories. Just wanted to say thanks for all those years and more to come.  (Mar 9, 2008 | post #1)

Was 2007 glorify white folks year?????????

You know, we can all sit here and point fingers, call each other names, dwell on the past, go back and fourth with whatever answer outdoes the previous question. cry, whine and have pitty on ourselves. It ain't going solve the problems we have. and I really don't have a logical answer to the question but, we can start by telling the truth, if you dare.  (Jan 29, 2008 | post #91)

Why do you hate white people?

you get what you give. racism will continue because thats what you want. slavery took place long ago. has it personally taken a toll on you. no. you use that to further whatever cause or agenda you might have. you use it to make it work for you. you don't use it for the common good. racism will continue, because it has to.  (Jan 25, 2008 | post #2550)

Take a look at some of the leader of the black society, then ask that question.  (Jan 25, 2008 | post #10)
