while driving through Sylacauga I was counting the vacant buildings in the downtown area. It has become apparent that the City Council and Mayor are not pushing hard enough to fill these buildings. A close friend of mine were discussing the businesses and companies that are leaving Sylacauga. We came to the conclusion that the city is becoming another fatal victim of "No support from its local people". I read in the local paper of Talladega starting up a shooting range, Alex City getting a new set of soccer fields, Pell City having block parties.  But not in this small town Sylacauga. Its time for a change.
