  1. There is an article from a Mr. Wilson in the NWH today mind you, you cannot comment on this story surprise!

    and its been removed from any FB page as well.

    But I have to laugh when a citizen finds out what has been going on, and then becomes another victim in the courtroom, of our CLCC meeting…

    join the concerned citizens who have been thru it before… as we have been thru it…

    I can’t seem to paste the article its called “Questionable Contributions” related to the Library and banks.

  2. Wonder what would happen if voters were given an option.

    Option A: $144 a year for 20 years on a $200K home (if that’s even true, many times that is the beginning price).

    Option B: Your choice (mix and match) of Starbucks, Amazon, Red Box, Borders, and Netflix gift cards (there should be a volume discount for buying millions of dollars of gift cards all at once).
