THE FLINT JOURNAL FIRST EDITION

Monday, January 01, 2007

In greeting a new year, the Editorial Board of The Flint Journal focuses, as always, on what this community must accomplish to not only maintain its advantages and opportunities but also how best to increase both.


[Sign me up to follow you guys-trb]

And in considering the significant economic, educational and social challenges to be faced and perhaps overcome in 2007, the critical need in each instance is for more top-quality leadership at the highest levels in every sector.

[Define leadership/ Somebody like you or like me?-trb]

It seems there are never enough good people to go around. And great leadership is rare, indeed.
Therefore, this year we will make an extra effort to encourage the best and the brightest to step forward - to run for a public office, to participate in a business or neighborhood association or to work for a nonprofit agency.

[Noqw how the hell will you do this. You are the same economic leadership that trashes all regular people who step forward and rise to saint hood these so temporary Harvard and Yale bottom feeding groupies that are here to rage our town and leave.-trb]

These jobs should not be left to those who too often see them as vehicles to serve themselves. And even those with good intentions often lack the requisite vision and skills.

[You are serving yourself by writing this editorial to serve your business base.-I will go with the neighborhood folks any day ..-trb]

Unfortunately, we see the results of this regularly: Small ideas, too many personality squabbles, and valuing turf protection over regional prosperity. A community of a half-million souls that expects to survive and thrive in a global economy needs leaders with a view oriented toward the entire area's welfare.

[I am glad YOU HAVE SOUL OR AT LEAST CAN SPELL IT.-TRB]

Integrity and courage also are essential, as too often even when the right course is known, the wrong path is taken. For example, those who could fix Genesee County's substandard ambulance system have allowed themselves to be hamstrung by special interests. Narrow, politically motivated thinking also caused Flint and its suburbs to separate a 911 center a decade ago and has been an obstacle to combining administration of the city and county libraries.

[ AHHH.YOUR REAL AGENDA...-TRB]

Regular readers of the Opinion pages will note that promoting collaboration is not a new theme for us.

[You have been beating this drum as children do ..you do not understand how to make it happen or what its implication could really mean..somebody from Harvard said it was a good idea..in Boston..well I digress..-trb]

It's our failing that calls for regional strategies, unconventional thinking and reasonable risk-taking too often have been rejected. Safer, short-term solutions were chosen instead.

[This is are rejected because we do not trust you. As your reader know you have earned this distrust. Good job...-trb]

However, if that had always been this area's leadership history, General Motors would not have been created - and wouldn't still be here - a flourishing Cultural Center would not exist and Bishop Airport would not be growing.

[At last we agree...-trb]

Realistically, we won't see similar large accomplishments, or even smaller successes, without more leaders who can conceive of and cooperate effectively on important community goals - people who can make a difference. In 2007, we'll attempt to find them.

[Ahhh ..you mean cooperate with your regional chamber of commerce..got it...-trb]

Lets start our year with a pint of the old river eh!

FLINT - So, do you want to gulp down a glass of Flint River water?
City administrators again are pushing to make it a possibility - and the idea already is drawing the ire of some City Council members.

"No matter how they try to extract those trace (treatment) chemicals, something will get through and be passed on to our children," Councilman Sheldon Neeley said.

MOVIE REVIEW HAPPY FEET

I saw Happy Feet over the weekend. It starts as teen age rebellion, segways to the conflict between big band and rock and roll and ends with a smashing dancing love song to the environmental movement. I give it 8 out of 10 Coneys and the little kids loved it too-Terry Bankert Watch out for Leopard Seals!

From guest Michael Moore su—!
I noticed Ryan Eashoo is talking about Michael Moore again, how sad. He was in the new biography about michael moore. He and Michael should get a real job. Like our great president Bush told him before. I am going to put this website on moorewatch, so others can see how much of a loser these folks are.

Man does that parking lot need to be re-surfaced. The one behind the dentist office and the Nite Cap. Its terrible with all of the potholes that get filled and don't stayed filled for very long. Same goes for that crater-like pot hole on New Street;just south of Pine.
