Quotes

"It comes as quite a shock," Farrell said after being named the winner. "I've only been in a nursing home for just about a year, and I have gotten myself into trouble many times."
...Nursing Home Pageant is a celebration of life and our nursing home residents' contributions to their communities," ANHA President Frank Brown said. "Each of these contestants captures that spirit. These ladies are wonderful ambassadors for their individual nursing home and Alabama's long term care profession."
...The town is being revitalized by Jimmy Rane, the big man you see wearing the bright yellow hat and cowboy boots in TV commercials, known as the "Yellow Fella.” He headed up a posse of business leaders and is dedicated to saving their hometown. The changes they've made are quite striking."
"The U S Department of Justice should launch a thorough investigation," reads the center's report. "It is not possible to stop all violence in prison. But the frequency and severity of violent incidents that are now occurring in Georgia's prisons do not happen in a well-run system."
