In response to the call about the Martin Luther King holiday: President’s Day is an observed federal holiday, this year on Feb. 15.
Our neighborhood is being ruined by junk cars and multiple occupants of houses. One in our neighborhood has a sign up, for rent, renting out rooms. Who can we get to enforce ordinances about this?

When is the BoE going to have an open house a the former Brewton-Parker College so the public can see what we bought?
If you need food, try New Hope Church of the Nazarene Angel Food Program. We also take food stamps.
