    Thought this was going to be more about the murder on Phoenix Dr.

    I am so glad that this article was not about the murder on Phoenix Dr. We need to focus on the Positive not the Negative, I want this paper to share the positive that Blacks are doing in our community. If you want to know what is going on about the murder call the Fairfield Police Dept.
