Liberty and Justice For All

Other

We have no political affiliation but CITY IMAGES does firmly stand against violence, rising health-care costs, falling employment rates and politically divisive rhetoric.

The USA needs leaders who will continue to embrace the ideals that established: freedom of the press, openness to newcomers, equality of opportunity, public investments in research, infrastructure, and respect for everyone. This country became great by welcoming all cultures, races, religions and nationalities.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN

Issue

The annoying sounds of leaf-blowers on our streets and sidewalks, the thump of loud music coming from our community center, or the out of control screaming heard outside your low life neighbor's home may all be considered a fact of our suburban life to some, but many others have become mad as hell and don't necessarily want to listen to anymore of these and other UN-necessary sounds, which are often heard from dawn to dusk.

AIRPORT ARREST

News

Kansas authorities have arrested 58 year old Terry Loewen, an aviation technician from Wichita. He was allegedly plotting to blow up the Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita with a carload of explosives. He intended to die a martyr in the bombing.

Authorities said Loewen was believed to have been motivated, at least partly, by religious beliefs. Loewen was taken into custody early Friday, officials said, as he attempted to make his way onto airport property with what he thought were active explosives.

Tell Me No Stories, I'll Tell You No Lies...

Issue

When it comes to announcing the creation of a new $100K camera project paid by with public funds on City Island, NY... Grandstanding, or misinformation aren't even close to being acceptable tactics.

It has now been several years since a state politician, civic leaders and the local newsletter announced in bold headline the installation of cameras along City Island.

Where are those promised cameras? City Island Images has learned that there are no cameras, and none are planned in the near future.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Problem

Global efforts to stop human trafficking continue to gain support. The Department of State’s Office has increased the monitoring and combating of trafficking in persons, which is headed by Acting Director Kari Johnstone. The effort leads the United States' global engagement against human trafficking, an umbrella term used to describe the activities involved when someone obtains or holds a person in compelled service.
