Genesee Valley Little League Update

League preparations continue at a good pace. At the present we need a vice-president, secretary and treasurer. These are all temporary positions necessary for the league to re-charter. A permanent board of directors will be elected in March 2013. If enough volunteers to form a board do not come forth the league will be dissolved. But, I hope not.

If you are a parent with league age children (5 to 9) and you want your child to play…

Erosion of American freedoms

People deserve a choice and  anyone who attempts to extinguish our choice through the exploitation of NYS Election Laws and loopholes is immoral. It is a direct slap to democracy and what this country is founded upon. Just because you can, does not mean you should. We call this a negative right. With our freedom comes responsibility.

Erosion of our freedoms

     Many of our freedoms continue to be eroded by despot politicians. Recently my petitions were challenged stating that I and other members of my team including my lady friend and son have committed forgery. This is a political trick! Do not be fooled.  

     All I have to say is that people deserve a choice and for someone to attempt to extinguish the people's choice through the exploitation of NYS Election Laws and loopholes is immoral. It is a direct slap to democracy and what…

Summer Youth week of July 23

The Week Highlight!

-Role playing: We did a lot of practicing before we headed out into the streets to interview local employers each person practiced being an interviewer (themselves), store worker, and observer.

Today my group and I walked around the 19th ward and went to different job associations. My group went to jobs arounnd the chili ave area. We were looking for job openings for youth ages 14-16 . a lot of jobs didnt hire that young because of legal issues . Commonly they would say theyd love to have young men and women to work at their jobs but the economy is bad so hopefully when more buisness comes then theyll be able to hire young people .
