WKRG — Petition: Move Mobile Regional Airport to Brookley Field

WKRG — Petition: Move Mobile Regional Airport to Brookley Field

MOBILE, Ala. – Mobile Regional Airport sits 11 miles west of Mobile and a lot of people have to tackle hectic Airport Boulevard to get there. Ted Burnette wants to change that. He created a petition asking the Mobile Airport Authority to move it closer to the heart of downtown – at Brookley Field. “About 600 thousand people live in Mobile and Eastern Shore and to have the smallest amount of traffic going out of the Mobile Regional Airport told me there was a problem and my conclusion is that it’s at the end of Airport Blvd., and it’s in the wrong place,” said Burnett. The Aeroplex was first established in 1929 as Bates Field and was Mobile’s first Municipal Airport. In 1948 it was renamed Brookley Air Force Base, but in...

WPMI Local 15 interview about Petition to Move Airport Back to Brookley Aeroplex

WPMI Local 15 interview about Petition to Move Airport Back to Brookley Aeroplex

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) – An online petition to move Mobile Regional Airport back to Brookley Aeroplex is taking flight in Mobile. Ted Burnett of Daphne is spearheading the petition and says the move would help the city to have a more centrally located airport, as well as increase air passenger traffic and boost economic development. Burnett believes the airport’s current location in west Mobile is inconvenient and far away from hotels and businesses. “It’s difficult to get on from I-10 and it’s not easy for anybody other than the people living in west Mobile,” Burnett said. His idea has gained support and signatures in an online petition, along with the attention of Alabama Representative Bradley Byrne. At a town hall meeting in July, Byrne said “I actually...

In the company of geniuses

In the company of geniuses

The following short film (18 minutes +/-) is about famous people with a mental illness and how our schools, our teachers, our textbooks failed to mention the connection between their illness of bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia… and their groundbreaking achievements and breakthroughs to generations of American children that later created a false impression and a stigma for those diagnosed with a mental illness. Rather than appreciate the mentally ill or have empathy for them, to often there’s fear and hate for this misunderstood group. Copyright © 2014.
