New Restaurant!

Okay, enough with the racial rants and raves! I hear a bit of good news for Greenville. The former Fermo's Restaurant will soon be re-opened by another party. They have much restaurant experience and plan to bring it back to its once noted venue!

Greenville has a lot of opportunity for new and experienced entrepreneurs! Sure it is a bit gamble, but so is life. I wish them well as all of Greenville should do also. The economy is difficult and Greeville is a "hard" market! I hear the opening will be in April. Get out and support these new owners' efforts... or shut up and keep waiting in the "drive-thru" lanes!

PS... Scammers, get off of this website... I will delete you every day!

I hope they leave out of the menu the "italian" chicken wings and the red sauce they used to pour over every single dish making everything taste the same.
They sure also need to revisit their old prices.
A decent wine list would be nice too.
Hopefully, the Delta will have an italian restaurant come April.

Who are the new owners?

Which restaurants did they have their previous experience?

P.S.

What was a racial rant on the previous blog?

I read ALL of the posts,(on the previous topic)- even continuing after the first 30 or so- and didn't see where anything was racial,raving, silly or not intelligent.

However, I did notice the spammer.

Will the 'new' Fermo's be in the same (old) location--Highway 82, between Fairview and Cedar Streets?

Who are the new owners?

Anonymous said...

THAT is good news! Their location is okay, the building is great, the parking is not always enough. Parking out front can be risky.

I am glad to hear this, hopefully the new owners have learned or are willing to learn what the mistakes were made by the previous owner and make it excellent this go round.

New business, restored business, always good news!

that's great to hear! i will give the new Fermo's a try.

Anonymous said...

I heard the owner is the one that owns the building, but has partnered with some restaurant experienced people to open and run it. Haven't heard about the menu, but it will be better than what it had become over the last couple of years. Can't wait to give it a try.

Anonymous said...

I will not be going to Fermo's no matter who runs it. I do not feel safe there and would not put my car in that back parking lot after dark. A safer location would draw my business.

10:31: SHUT UP. Why do you feel you have to make a negative out of a very positive posting?

Anonymous said...

11:18 AM poster:


I feel as though poster 10:31 AM was making an honest, truthful statement about their own personal safety regarding a restaurant's location.

And the truth of the matter, it is a statement that is true about the majority of of Greenville's locations-both retail and residential.

The average Joe Doe citizens of Greenville do NOT have their own city-paid, personal body guards and thus must "look out" for their and their family's own personal safety.

If you feel that the truth is negative...then perhaps you need to remove your "rose colored" glasses and look , not only at Greenville, but, at the rest of the world.

Yes, I repeat what has been said earlier...the truth hurts.

And...speaking of "restaurant parking lot safety"...everyone knows that the famous Doe's has security guards on duty in the parking lot. And that is the truth !

Be mindful that WE posters only have about 15 or so more chances to post...before the topic will be changed as previously suggested.

LOL!

Anonymous said...

I agree with 11:18. The point is that this was a post about something positive. But something negative was put out there without cause. Sometimes it is just better to not say anything at all. The topic wasn't parking lot safety. It was about someone taking the time and money to open a new restaurant; I think we should be positive about someone making an investment in our town.

Anonymous said...

Absolutely!! ANY new business is good news and should be supported by the public.

As for the parking lot, we parked in the rear many times and never had safety issues, just concerns of patrons abilities in driving without hitting someone's vehicle as they pulled in or out.

Good lighting and security persons will satisfy any concerns. All cities have locations in downtown or certain at risk areas and do fine, as long as they address the issues. This new place can do the same.

You, as the blog site manager, openly post YOUR views and opinions, so are YOUR readers NOT allowed to post their views and opinions?

Racial overtones--why, because they point out that a certain location in the city of Greenville is not safe at night time?

And the majority of crimes are committed by which race?

Is it a negative attitude for a person to be concerned about their personal safety, after dark, alone,
in a deserted parking lot, which is secluded from both patrons in a restaurant and traffic from the street?

Anonymous said...

So,...THE mayor of Greenville can have numerous body guards, paid for by the city, for her own personal safety, BUT...the average citizens of Greenville do not have a right to be concerned about THEIR own personal safety...because then it is deemed racial and negative?

P-L-E-A-S-E!

You will hear complaints about 'safety' in Greenville until you get rid of THE mayor and HER bodyguards.

If you do not like the complaints, then go talk to THE mayor.

We'll shut up, when she shuts up!

Anonymous said...

That is why it is called a FREE country...hopefully it is still called that...if you don't feel safe, NO ONE can make you go to this place or Wal Mart after dark or Kroger or church or the mall...because there is NO such thing any place any where that is totally safe! Crime can happen anywhere and it has, not just in Greenville, but any city.

A person has to use good common sense and take precautions to know their surroundings entering and exiting any place.

I am just saying, with good sense and security in place, everyone should be fine...no, no guarantee...but no one can give you that. Even up North, in the East or the West, in all white areas, in the most wholesome of small towns, there are rapists, muggers, thieves and murderers. Watch TV they have them, take my word for it!...There is no where to hide.

So, if you don't feel safe to go alone, go with friends, if that is not good enough...then stay home. It is your life, if you want to live in fear, God knows it is your right.

As for me, I will be dining at Fermos or whatever it is called, enjoying my friends and again, hopefully, a good meal.

I want to support a new business in my city. I want other businesses to want to come because they see the local support. Also, I want to have a nice place to dine that is not a fast food place.

Better to be safe, than sorry (with a full stomach)! LOL

I feel(and hope)the new place will do very well.
Regardless of Fermo's location, the kind of food that was served and the ridiculous prices, it was always packed. I think it was harder to make it fail than succeed. This proves that Greenville is full of small town, ignorant, nighttime-baseball-cap users that would not tell the difference between dog food and italian food.

Forthright,
I don't know if you have any interest in this, but a forum embedded into the Delta Scoop blog may help keep discussions on topic. I found instructions on adding a forum to a blogspot page here:
http://bloggersentral.blogspot.com/2009/12/adding-forum-to-blogspot.html

I considered starting a Mississippi Delta and/or Greenville dedicated forum myself, but I didn't want to step on toes by just posting a link in the comments section of your blog. I didn't check to see if the forum required user names or posts could be kept anonymous, either.

If you are interested and/or need some help setting it up, drop me a comment here and I will contact you via email.

Well, well, well. Mrs. Mayor called a press conference late this morning to announce that she would be having a public forum tonight at 6:30 at a church on Alexander Street. The forum is for citizens to air any complaints that they may have. Well how convenient. By the time folks who actually get the DDT or listen to the news, the "forum" would be over. Makes me want to cry. Poor thing, no one came. Typical Heather. Waits till the last moment to do anything, knowing that no one would show up. That way, she doesn't have to answer any revelant questions to the citizens of Greenville. Sit down and shut up Heather....move to Florida under daddy's butt. We want you out of Greenville. You have done nothing but bankrupt the city with your bodyguards.

How many people were at the mayor's "forum?"

Transplanted Midwesterner said...

9:08 and 10:33

I feel you have a misunderstanding of what a forum is in internet parlance. A forum (aka, a message board) relies on user generated content much like the comments section of this blog, but allows multiple conversations to be occurring concurrently with out stepping on each other's words.

Additionally 9:08, I am not sure who "we" are in your comment, please let me know who you are speaking for and how I can register to vote in your next anonymous election. This "we" does not especially care for the structure of having to wade through off-topic comments to make a point about the blog entry. I was simply offering an idea as an addition to the current blog to improve the level of communication allowed.

While I'm ranting, let's set something straight. There is one blogger on the Delta Scoop and that is Forthright. The rest of us are merely commenters on his blog. Granted, Forthright often uses others' posts as entries, followed by his own take, but that is within his prerogative as it is his blog.

So,...as a mayor, does one just wake up one morning and decide to have a public forum within the next twelve hours---no planning, no announcements?

You are right.

I smell fish!

She planned it and "invited" the ones that she wanted in attendance.

She "chose" HER audience.

Is Benson, ( a member of THE school board) the pastor of THAT church which hosted THE "supposedly" public forum?

Or is THE GPSD puchasing agent (Michelle Jones) a member of that particular church?

Bond money, repairs, contractors!

Anonymous said...

8:49, you are right. This is normal operation for the Mayor. She is a strategtist who plots, plans and maneuvers everything. That's her way of manipulation and control that she so badly needs in her sick personality. Yes, she invited the people that she wanted to attend the forum. And from the tv news, no one but the Mayor said anything. They just all listened with awe to her bull about what she was going to do for Greenville in 2010. That's not a forum, that's a lecture. Remember, "If it ain't about her, it ain't about nothing".

Anonymous said...

I think BOTH, Tommy Benson, school board member,
AND Michelle Jones,purchasing agent for THE schools attend Vessels of Mercy Church. HE is the pastor and SHE sings.

Which reminds me?

Does THE school have anything in it's "new" ethics
policy concerning church sponsered cruises during the first week of school?

True, a twelve-month employee CAN take their vacation whenever they choose, BUT, if the "said" employee takes their school-aged child with them on THE vacation,...shouldn't the child/student get an "unexcused" absence for the time missed?

I guess it ALL depends on whether or not the student's parent works at THE school's central office or not!

Or who their preacher is!

Or whether or not THE school superintendent is a preacher himself!

I guess THE business office employees have a different 'set' of school rules that they abide.

Hmmmmmm.

I guess you don't get the title and position of "purchasing agent" until your preacher IS appointed to school board.

I don't think Fermos location is very bad. It's right on the hwy. and theres lots of traffic around the location. The cowards that are doing the dirty deeds around town don't have the guts to try something that is so close to a busy hwy. Besides we shouldn't let them scare us from doing what we want. I'm sure lots of us are carrying guns and as soon as we pop a cap in a few of these wanna be thugs things will start changing around here.

Just recently I had to confront one of these thugs in a parking lot and he jumped out of his car while blocking me in and he was all bad until he saw me pull out my little pea shooter which was bigger than his and suddenly he wasn't so brave. He took off so fast it looked like he hit warp drive in his car. They aren't so brave so stand up to these wanna be thugs and show them we aren't scared and aren't gonna take it anymore!

True, the highway is busy, but Fairview isn't. And all of the thugs hang out at the corner store on Cedar and the Highway. The alley separates Fermo's back parking lot and the corner store.

If only I had my own city-paid personal body guard, then I would feel safe parking in the back parking lot of Fermo's!

Would THE mayor 'loan' me HER personal body guards for my nightly outings? I would be willing to call in avance to reserve them.

Why do you think the mayor has meetings where no whites would even dare show up? She knows she will not have to answer the right questions from those of us who give a damn about this city. Most mayors hold meetings in the county courthouse or some public building where all can feel comfortable attending. Why doesn't she have a meeting at the G'ville Mall down south of town where most all of the citizens are white and would feel safe attending the meeting. She knows that would be a disaster if she did have a meeting where we all could attend in comfort. Have it on a Sat. morning when we that work can plan to be there instead of a one or two day notice and in the middle of the week at a time where all of us are taking care of our families and doing homework with our kids. Something she knows nothing about ,families first that is. I challenge the mayor to plan a meeting south of town somewhere around the G'ville Mall and see what she will have to answer too. Pick a reasonable time and place south of town and see what happens mayor. I double dog dare you!

Anonymous said...

I just heard the news that another store was closing in the G'ville Mall. Way to go G'ville. I was told it was due to mostly stealing from the store and not checking out all of the merchandise at the cash registers. Now Belk will soon spread the word to others that this towns workforce is nothing but a bunch of losers and crooks. That puts a bad signature on all of us that do all the right things because just a few think they deserve everything for free. I can't count the number of stores that have come and gone due to stealing from the store. Sears manager said a lot of the merchandise never made it to the floor to sell before it was stolen. We just keep digging a bigger hole here in G'ville due to these morons that should be happy they have a job but instead they steal form their employer causing them to flee from our city to tell others don't even think about coming to G'ville unless you just need a write off on your taxes.

If DADDy can rent the convention center for a gospel choir, surely HE can rent the convention center for HIS daughter, THE mayor to have a public forum for ALL citizens of Greenville.

The public library downtown, across from City Hall has available space for meetings or public forums.

Additionally, two of THE local schools (Solomon and Greenville High)have auditoriums that are available for rent which could host the public forum.

Or THE GHEC building?

Or perhaps, if SHE had the guts, she could contact either, St. Joe School or Washington School and ask if their auditoriums could be made available for THE public forum for ALL citizens of Greenville.

Meetings at these small, rinky dink churches will not hold the masses of citizens that would love to engage in a public conversation with THE mayor about OUR issues and concerns.

Oh, and of course WE would want the meeting place to be large enough to ensure that ALL of the media outlets, (from Greenville to Jackson to Washington D.C.,) can also attend!

This sounds like it could really be fun, informative and entertaining.

You can't help those people in Haiti. They are lazy and just want to get by. Sounds familiar doesn't it? I have been on several missions to help families. I would leave and come back several months later to see how they were doing and would see everything I had done to help them was left or gone. They wouldn't do anything while I was gone but just depend on the gov't to keep handing out to them a little at a time. It's a lost cause over there so I quit going after a few times. Now I spend my time in places like West Va. to help those people. They live right here in our backyard and are very bad off. But our Gov't doesn't help them and is practically unknown to us here in the U.S. You wouldn't believe those people up in the mountains there. Most of them have never seen indoor plumbing or electricity in the life. These are the ones we need to help instead of all these foreign people that hate our guts.

people worried about crime in Greenville can thank at least one of our curcuit judges, Betty W. Sanders. Just this week she stopped the trial of a accused child molester and encouraged the defense attorney to ask for a mistrial after he had asked a witness some questions and the child said things that she felt were prejudicial to the accused molester. apparently the defense attorney had not objected but she wanted to advocate for the defendant and declared a mistrial. as a former victim of child molestation i have heard about her shenanigans and intend to start blogging about her decisions that affect crime in Greenville. i have many more facts i intend to post about her

to mulehead farmer it was the defense attorney who asked the questions and the trial should have continued, no one objected to anything but when a judge decides to stop a trial bc of what the defense attorney did, it is not the prosecutors fault. judges are supposed to be im partial and if i were the parent of that poor child i would file a judicial complaint

No Heather. The question is HOW ARE YOU realizing Dr. King's dream in your life and community? Bet you haven't done a thing for your community. But, you probably have done a whole lot for yourself. As usual.

FYI. The mayor will be holding one of her forums at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at the Forbus Center of First Baptist Church, 407 Main Streeet. Be there or be square.

Yes, and if you have a complaint against a grocery store, bring it with you to the Jan. 27th meeting.

Someone complained at yesterday's meeting about a neighborhood grocery store, and....Heather and Eric Simmons...and others showed up for a heart to heart talk with the owner.

The complaint came from neighbors about public drinking and littering and other actions that were not mentioned.

So, attend the Jan. 27th. meeting and... see if she and her crew make visits for resolutions (of complaints)... or if you are ignored.

Remember, this particular meeting is scheduled for a Wednesday, at noon (1/27/10), so plan ahead... and schedule a longer lunch break... with your employer's blessings. This meeting will probably be longer than one hour to ensure that all are heard.

Why the Government is stupid....here's Peter Schiff on the plain and simple truth of minimum wage.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LaPGIIAyk4

But here in Greenville, how many of our politicians support minimum wage? I suppose that's why we have so many on welfare doing nothing. Industries have left and are not coming because our workforce isn't even worth the minimum wage at $7.25/hour. Now if I were "allowed" by the government to hire people for less, I may actually be able to create a job. Instead, I can't, and therefore my taxes will pay for this person to sit around on welfare.

Why aren't/weren't minimum wage increases during this recession being rolled back or delayed?

Well, we will see if "equal treatment regardless of race" applies at the next Mayor's meeting, won't we?

It's amazing.

The first meeting was on a weekday
night.

The second meeting was on a Sunday.

Why, oh why is the third meeting
scheduled for a weekday at noon?

Answer: Because the "supposedly" audience that would like to attend the third meeting will be at work and unable to attend. That's what she's counting on!

HER deceitful, underhanded plotting and planning never ceases.

And, if word gets out, that there will be a large audience on 1/27/10 at noon, then you are right. SHE will cancel.

Loving southern hospitality

By Matt Guthrie
Wednesday, January 20, 2010 1:18 PM CST

DDT Publisher

Wow! What a two weeks it has been.

As my wife Kim and I are beginning to try to get settled (we are looking at many houses), I can honestly say it is great to be in the South again. Even though I moved from a town on the outskirts of Atlanta, they don’t hold a candle to the hospitality I have felt from the folks here in the Delta.

Everywhere we have been, we have received nothing but a warm welcome. People have gone completely out of their way to make sure that we feel comfortable in our new home.

One of our best experiences came a little over a week ago when we went to an art opening at the E. E. Bass Cultural Arts Center.

Kim and I not only were amazed at the center itself, but of all the activities that the center provides to the community. This facility, and all it has to offer, is a huge asset to the community and something we can all be proud of. It is certainly something that needs to be on the front line when promoting our community.

Throughout the next several months and years I plan on giving you, our reader, an update on what we are doing here at the paper. This will occur from time to time and be on no set schedule.

Whether it is something new on our Web site, or a new feature in the paper, I want you to understand some of the decisions on why we are doing something here. Of course, I want your feedback on how we are doing.

One of my two main philosophies of a newspaper’s role in the community is that we have to take a leadership role in promoting our city and county. We have to be a leading advocate of what we can do to help make our community a better place to live.

We can do this by providing the forum for the exchange of ideas through our newspaper or our online site, and by providing thoughtful and logical endorsement of these ideas, no matter who presents them. By providing this service to the community, we can use this to help our quality of life improve.

The second of my two philosophies on the role of the paper in the community, is to be the watchdog of our local governments. Our governments are run by elected officials and they have to be held accountable to decisions that affect our everyday lives.

We provide that by covering their actions and making sure they are acting prudently with the money we provide them, and that they are enacting laws that are for the true benefit of the residents. This role is one of the founding principles provided to us in the Bill of Rights and one that I take seriously.

As Kim and I begin to settle into our new home, I want to encourage anyone to give me a call or stop me in the store and tell me how we are doing. The Delta Democrat Times has been here a long time and I am truly honored to be your next steward.

On a side note, one of my favorite guilty pleasures at lunchtime is a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and tomato (I know, not the healthiest of lunches as Kim will remind me). So, over the next several weeks I am going to be on the prowl looking for the best grilled cheese in Washington County. I have started my quest at the Stareka Market earlier this week — they have set a high standard. I am looking for suggestions for the next stop so don’t be shy in throwing an idea my way.

Matt Guthrie is publisher of the Delta Democrat Times.

Welcome Wagon said...

Welcome Matt!

Greenville is alway glad to see new residents! The last one we had was in 2001. Unfortunately, his job was displaced to Mexico but his house is still on the market if you are interested.

Great to know your culinary tastes are simple because we have no restaurants left. Grilled cheese is best ordered from Burger King... just order a whopper with cheese and ask them to hold all condiments (including meat)!

We also welcome your objectivity in the pirnt media. I shall be sending you several "exposés" on our local health care facility (your new owners) which I am sure you will print without hesitation!

As for getting a straight answer out of our mayor regarding the future of Greenville, I can only hope that you have banked your frequent flyer miles. She is a hard woman to "catch"!

The DDT has a venerable history of excellent journalism and fairness. I wish you well with what you have inherited. My best advice is to keep in good standing with the local funeral homes... therein lies your most loyal and dedicated readership!

Hey Matt,
I would advise you rent not buy. You will thank me when the suites come up from Jackson and introduce you to the new publisher in a year or so.

Ask questions said...

Poor Matt...

You are probably a very nice and intelligent person who is excited about your new position at the DDT. However, in six months, you will have joined our frustrated taxpayers who are all begging to get out of Greenville.

Greenville was a great place to live and raise a family... great artists, writers and a very rich history... that was before we allowed apathy, ignorance and entitlement to ruin our city! Today, Greenville is all but dead, as is the DDT, the mall and most other businesses.

I wish I could say that it was a well fought fight, but it wasn't! Greenville caved in as soon as forced integration took hold in the late 1970s.

As earlier stated... rent, don't buy! On your way out of town in 12 to 15 months, you will appreciate this advice!

Anonymous said...

Good grief! Greenville doesn't need enemies, with "friends" like the residents of this @#$%&*+ blog. Could you give the man and his wife a week or two to try and make a home here? No one expects that they will be long-term residents, as the Emmerich newspapers tend to move people around frequently. But could you at least allow them the courtesy of making their own assessments of the area? Please keep your @#$%&*+ negativity to yourselves! I'm so tired of this!!!!!!

I heard that a Fridays , Outback Steakhouse, Carrabas, Apple Bees, and a Firehouse Subs all wanted to move to G'ville but were not offered any breaks in the downtown area. Way to go G'ville. All of the above are A-1 places to eat and would have started the downtown ressurection I would think. In stead the same old places just keep closing and moving south. Thats what I call great leadership in our declining little town. It sounds like some hanky panky is going on and the city doesn't want to step on any toes in town from those who have been here a long time. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING ON IN G'ville? ENQUIRING MINDS WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.

It is more about being recognizable than recognized. Adopting a user name brings some accountability while maintaining anonymity. For example, it allows other reader's to put comments into context if they see the same "Get out of Greenville while you can" type posts by the same person over and over again. Often, when there are multiple Anonymous posts strewn together, it appears that two people are having a dialogue when multiple people are involved. That alone makes it confusing for other readers.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but the posts have never been confusing to me.

People just "jump in" and post whenever they want to.

If they read a particular post that they agree with, then they include that in their post. Also, if someone asks a question,
then later on, eventually, someone that knows the answer will supply the answer.

Everyone and everything in Greenville (and in the Delta) is casual, and more "laid back". Even the blog and commenters!

There is no need for accountability while commenting.

If you happen to see some of the same or similar comments...then it means more than one person has the same thoughts---not that the same person is commenting over and over again.

Outback Steakhouse, Carrabas, Apple Bees, and a Firehouse Subs wanted to locate in downtown Greenville? Give me a break. Where do you ever see those places in a downtown area? No where. I think that is just wishful thinking.

One of the "problems" with Greenville's economic development strategy has been requiring businesses to hire a racial quota. Instead of hiring the best qualified employees, Greenville wants a guarantee of 80% black employees. This scares off businesses that have moved beyond the days of racial quotas (1970s). We are stuck in a time capsule that should be burried forever. Greenville is lucky to have what it has... as for those "new" establishments... get real!

"Greenville wants a guarantee of 80% black employees"

???????????????????????

Where in the world did you come up with that one?

I often read the comments in this blog, but very rarely comment-- haven't done so in well over a year. However, this statement is so off-the-wall that I simply had to say something.

"Greenville' (and I assume from the tenor of your post that you mean the City government) doesn't "want" or "require" any kind of employment ratio. The City has no control whatsoever over the hiring practices of ANY local business and, more to the point, cannot offer any special perks to anyone -- just the tax breaks for "industry" authorized by state law or, in the case of the downtown area, the limited ad valorem tax abatement authorized by Mississippi's Main Street program (which was adopted by the City about eight years ago).

The statements in the previous posts about several restaurant chains deciding not to move to Greenville because they were not going to receive some kind of unspecified "breaks" (whatever that means) is a pure fabrication, and typical of the kinds of random, totally uninformed urban legends that are perpetuated ad nauseum in an anonymous setting such as this.

Don't get me wrong -- venues like this can serve as a valuable forum for public discussion, and this blog has done so on numerous occasions in the past. However, when I read claims like the one discussed above, I know that one of two things is true -- either the writer is mindlessly repeating something that he/she heard from someone else who hadn't a clue OR he/she just made it up.

I'm not sure which is worse.

Greenville certainly has its problems, but spreading false statements of this type can do nothing but make things worse.

The former moderator of this site and I used to exchange e-mails on various subjects about which there was some general confusion in the
public. I never asked him/her who he/she was, although he/she knew who I was. That moderator, I think, came to understand that there often is a substantial difference between what's actually going on and what some people think (or pretend to think) "might" be going on.

Everyone has a right to have, and to express, an opinion. However, the less information one has, the less basis one has for a valid opinion. Unfortunately, in a forum of this nature, it's impossible to evaluate the validity of anyone's offerings (including, of course, mine)

Let's try to stick to facts, or at least offer a factual basis for our more inflammatory opinions.

By the way, the rumor about the Fermos site is correct.


Peace.

I know for a fact that to bring a business to any area you MUST have a certain tax base, and that is NOT here. We MUST find a way to rebuild what "once was" in order to get where we all want to be. The reason we may never see the TJ MAXX or Applebee's or any other nice establishment come to Greenville is because the workforce is not properly trained. Argue if you wish, but look at the history here. We need better schools, better leadership, better attitudes, and more trustworthy citizens.
