YOUR TURN: Anthony Prather on 'Taking Back Our Neighborhoods'

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Anthony Prather. Prather lives in South Memphis and he wrote to tell us he was happy about coverage of his area that was featured in one of our "Taking Back Our Neighborhoods" stories.

In his words:

"I have lived in South Memphis for the past 15 years and have seen the neighborhood decline.  We need a clean-up campaign.  It seems that people don't care about cleaning up around where they live.  On a weekly basis, you will find me in the yard working to improve where I live.  I have asked the City of Memphis to tear down the boarded-up, crime-ridden houses where the grass has grown so high it looks like a forest.  This area of South Memphis seems to be the forgotten city. As one person said, 'Where are the leaders?'"

That's Anthony Prather's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
