The local news has been full of stories about a local Labor Day party that went horrible wrong and the aftermath it created. Former NFL pro Brian Holloway discovered his home was being used by a flash mob of teens for a destructive party. He found that out when his son sent a picture he found on Twitter of the out of control teens. By the time Holloway returned to his New York home from Florida, he found the place completely trash. He then tracked down the partiers by using their Twitter and Facebook postings. Holloway was earnest in his efforts to help these kids. Sadly, some parents didn’t take too kindly to the public shaming and have threatened to sue. Ironically, all that “shaming” evidence was provided by the kids themselves who had no problem posting pictures of themselves destroying the home.
There was some good that came of all of this. Some local high school students volunteered to pitch in and help clean up the home.
“We just wanted to show him that not all teenagers in the world do these kind of things,” volunteer Gina Martina told a local paper. She also gave Holloway a card with a written apology along with a plate of brownies.

As kids head back to school in Albany, Governor Cuomo took the occasion to vow that failing schools will no long be tolerated.
“What I’m saying on education is, failing schools are not acceptable. Period. It has to end, and it has to end now,” he said in a meeting with The Buffalo News Editorial Board. “Our society’s willingness to perpetuate this situation is no longer acceptable. We need dramatic action, and it’s going to come to a head.”
On the list of possible solutions are to have successful charter schools take over the failing schools. If an entire district is getting poor grades that it might be time for the mayor or town to step in. There will be a lot more school reform details put forth in his upcoming state of the union speech. Although there have been plenty of education reform bills put forth in the state legislature, they haven’t moved far. Hopefully, this year will be different.
Sending your kids off to school is a good time to “reform” your home. At the very least you should take the opportunity of an empty house during the day to do some cleaning. What kind of junk has piled up over the summer? Maybe there are some broken toys or a swing set that has been abandoned. Perhaps there is a above ground pool that has seen better days. Could be that y our garage and basement simply became a dumping ground for all kinds of clutter. Instead of hanging onto that stuff into the fall, why not call Junk King Capital District and schedule a removal appointment?
