He expressed his concern that pardon and parole boards are not doing their due diligence in making sure that those before the boards are not released too early.He cited one inmate who was released and then killed two women.“The boards should do their jobs in making sure that others don’t lose their lives,” he said. Marshall expressed his concerns about increasing drug use, about phone scams, about human trafficking, about the potential loss of Congressional seats and about identity theft.He pledged his dedication to making and keeping Alabama a safe place to do business and to live and raise a family.Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas thanked Marshall for taking time to speak to the Troy Rotarians and for always making himself accessible to law enforcement.“Attorney General Steve Marshall understands what law enforcement is up against on a daily basis,” Thomas said. “He is always receptive to what we have to say and is open to suggestions of ways to do what we do better and in safer. Attorney General Marshall is a strong voice for law enforcement in the Legislature and we appreciate what he does, not just for law enforcement but for all Alabama.” By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Email the author Latest Stories Print Article Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

The weight of the world

first_imgWhen I am researching a topic to create a presentation, I often run across statements such as “the Board is responsible for the institution’s compliance culture”, “the Board is ultimately responsible for ensuring that…”, “the Board should create a culture of compliance”, “the Board must provide adequate oversight for the BSA program”, and the Big Daddy of them all, “the ultimate responsibility for compliance with all statutes and regulations resides with the Board of Directors”.Wow, those are some powerful words. It’s easy to imagine the weight of the world on a poor Board’s shoulders. As I think about those words and incorporate them into presentations, I really wonder how many Boards are actually aware of these pretty significant responsibilities. Back in the day, Boards knew they had some fiduciary responsibilities, but this whole business of compliance responsibility rolled in pretty quietly over the years like a dark, silent fog. Many people just didn’t notice the change. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
