Stuck at home on Tylenol 3 and antibiotics
I have a friend who owns a lawn service. He tried to get "WEEDWKR" for his business truck. It was denied of course, the DMV thought it meant "WEED WORKER" instead of "WEED WHACKER". The word at issue was "WEED".
SP: "unless any other fences not in compliance were grandfathered in at some point which is a possibility."
Good point. From the way the article was worded it seemed like they were not grandfathered in. We'll see what happens.
Unfortunately, if the CZDC is not acting against ALL of the out-of-regulation fences, Cowan may have an argument on his side.
Why don't we lower Bruce Moore's pay to match? Not much I admit, but it's a start.
Max: "New owner John Bailey has ended subsidized rentals, performs background checks and otherwise has taken steps met with approval by a neighborhood group."
That's very good to see. We see lots of reports in the news of bad landlords, but we rarely see the efforts of the good landlords who try to keep their neighborhoods up. And to take over a run-down slum like Valley Springs requires a huge investment up front, with any returns delayed for a long time into the future.
While the goal of the Section 8 (and similar) subsidized rent programs was originally to encourage the poor to move into a middle-class lifestyle, the reality is that with a bad housing authority, the voucher programs simply allow crime to fester and grow.
Each housing authority is different of course. North Little Rock is a very good one to work with, and takes a very active stand on making bad tenants correct their behavior. Little Rock on the other hand, is... well... I refuse to accept their tenants due to the past actions of the agency. Perhaps with the change in leadership the Little Rock housing authority will improve its image.
It takes a lot of the money to clean up a property that has gone to the sewers like Valley Springs. The returns often take years to come to fruition. I've bought a couple of properties like that, and I understand the long-term investment needed. I fully support the new owners in this, and I wish them well!

Yossarian is right, this is a clusterf*** in the making. We need to stop wasting money on Obama's war in the Middle East (yes, I know, Bush II the Idiot started it... but Obama escalated Afghanistan, so he owns it now) and put the money to work here.
I know a lot of engineers and technical people my age (low 50s) who are unemployed and have trouble finding work. They would be HAPPY to learn the new skills for this type of work, and most are bright enough to learn. Heck, even the liberal arts majors who are unemployed can use a shovel!
Look at our budget deficit nightmare... look at how many people are on long-term unemployment... why not spend the money on putting the unemployed to work on our infrastructure?
By the "witness" own admission: "They broke the window of one car, set off a car alarm in another, after which they went to a different part of the complex, he said."
I hope this little bastard is in jail. How many hundreds of dollars of damage did they do to the REAL innocent victims?
