This is so Larry

Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford outlines plan to complete about two dozen community projects – al.com

The mayor announced that the “Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament” will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Roebuck Golf Course. Twenty-eight students from Birmingham high schools – most of whom have never played golf before – will compete. Langford, whose office gave $10,000 for the tournament and sought corporate sponsorships as well, said golf is another avenue for students to earn college scholarships.

Good luck, local school systems!

Alabama to cut its allocation to local schools by 25 percent – al.com

The state is short of cash so it’s only going to send 75 percent of the money it is supposed to to local schools. But don’t worry — they tell the schools that if they need more money to make payroll, they can borrow it! Brilliant idea, I know.
