Re: “Zoo Jam has financial problems UPDATE

The wife and I saw this cluster#$*) coming a few weeks ago while driving down 630 listening to a radio ad for this event. What we want to know is what City person(s) approved this and can anybody just sign up and promote a concert on the golf course?

Re: “Truck sticks under Broadway bridge in NLR

Yes and this "choke point" will still be there after we spend 40 million plus dollars on a new Broadway Bridge and roundabout on the north end of the bridge.

Re: “NLR sets sales tax election UPDATE

It is clear LR doesn't want the fair, otherwise they would have made it a centerpiece in their recent sales tax vote along with revitalization of the neighborhoods around the fair site. Message sent and recieved. Hays is now taking the next step. BTW Laman does rock. We need branch libraries in Rose City, Levy and Baring Cross too for those who can't get Laman

Re: “Tom Cotton learns value of Internet

What kind of Republican is against not spending taxpayer dollars? New books every few years for kids cost big money. Downloading them onto I-pads is much more economical and keeps the lessons more current. Perhaps he just wants kids to have hand held blackboards like Abe Lincoln used.

Re: “Beware of caterers bearing gifts UPDATE

This is the way most High Schools finance their artificial turf at the football fields. Get a bank to "donate" a couple of hundred thousand dollars for the turf, but require the school district to use their bank at slightly higher interest rates for the millions a typical school district is required to keep in reserve. In the end, the district oftern pays more than the turf costs because it gets less in interest revenue from its deposits.

Re: “GOP hypocrite: Takes state cash AND undocumented

Good for the goose....

This from Tolberts middle paragraph in his update defending the use of State money for illegal aliens

"It looks to me like Harris is running a successful preschool that is rendering services to low income students in his area. In reality, this is the reason for the large amount of state funds. Harris is not a sponge on the state but rather the state is assisting low income family afford to attend his preschool"

Now change a few words

It looks to me like the State universities are running a successful higher education system that is rendering services to low income students in the area. In reality, this is the reason for the large amount of state funds. These univerisitues are not a sponge on the state but rather the state is assisting low income family afford to attend college.

Good for the gander!

Re: “Census: Whites now minority in LR

Call me naive or just colorblind. I really don't see how the Dem/Gaz article is relevant. I am a white male. Where is the story about males being a minority?
