the glowing article in the AC a month ago was just a puff piece. This is still a dangerous place to live.

or west of the CBD does not count. Downtown is the jewel of the ARC. Downtown has always been the center of life in ARC. Notice how history is being rewritten. The center was dispersed in the 1960's. Large retailers who needed large crowds of shoppers with disposable funds went to the suburbs. Never to return.

Now the downtown is going to become its own realtor at the expense of 36 % of the citizens/taxpayers.

Isn't it a crime in GA to ell the remains of the dead?

River Glenn is privately

Walton Oaks has been open for a while now, and zero problems.

River Glenn is privately owned, and not public housing.

Demetrius Moore

Jesus Wept! John 11:35, I pray to the LORD Jesus Christ, that there be NO MORE killings at River Glenn Apartments!!! These are the lost souls of Augusta! These young men are children of GOD, but they do not know it! Their indenity is lost in the basic need to survive with no hope of a better future! This is all they know! Men of GOD must pour themselves into the lives of these young men, to lead them & to guide them into the light & love of GOD! There has to be a change in the hearts and minds of these young people, they are our future!
