Poor GE needs a tax break. Didn't you save enough when you decimated the medical plan or abolished the defined benefit pension plan?

Here is an idea. Hire more contract workers! Push out the long term employees and hire more international contractors. Oh wait, you already do that.

DOCTOR David Pratt retired from GE and then went to work for the county at a salary of $135,000 a year. His take on the cost of this benefit reduction would be vastly different that a retired factory worker.

What would be peanuts for him would be a huge burden for others, and to use his comments is misleading.

Might be worth asking the County Highway department if they could pitch in for peak snow plowing. They have the equipment and expertise to do it. Just a thought.

Pit Bull measures? How about human being measures? Who trained that dog to attack, a human. Any breed is what they are trained to be.

So you go down south and you are surprised to see how they treat some dogs? Maybe you should advocate training for prospective owners? And just maybe you could open your mind and realize that Pit Bulls are not the only dogs that can be aggressive. Limiting the breed by "fixing" them is not the answer.
