"And with the moving of the library and the auditorium, that does offer the opportunity for the hospital to expand, and to partner with VSU and the new healthcare training, we can then train therapists and nurses and become even maybe a teaching hospital where doctors that are training somewhere could do their internships here; that would be great!"

6.d. Appointments to Lowndes County Library Board.
If the Library Board has its members listed somewhere online, I can't find
it. Nobody showed up to speak. County Manager Joe Pritchard said Edward
Rawls and Rabbi Elbaz(?) asked not to be reappointed, and Kay Harris is
asking to be reappointed. (They didn't mention that Harris is also the
chairman of the library board and the editor of the VDT.) Names under
consideration are [clatter, bang]. It's impressive the ways Pritchard
finds to be unintelligible even with his microphone adjusted correctly.

"As a publicly owned power company and a city department, Austin Energy
returns profits to the community annually. That money helps fund City
services such as fire, police, EMS, parks, and libraries. The utility
has provided $1.5 billion in dividends to the community since 1976."
Baltimore's place-based model
"Baltimore's Virtual Supermarket program -- a creative public-private partnership that utilizes the city's libraries to bring fresh groceries to remote neighborhoods...."
Neighborhoods matter more than schools?
How about we find ways to locate new facilities like libraries and
auditoriums in those "bad" neighborhoods to make them better?
