As long as one friend of a politician is out of work - we can keep expanding all the various appointed positions forever.

What is worse than arson - murder? Gun violence? I think arson is EXTREMELY serious as once you start it you can't control it. It threatens people, their homes, their pets, and the firefighters who respond. Mom and sonny need to go to PRISON. That's it - nothing else, PRISON.

Poor kid - no matter what - he will always remember that day, and probably feel bad.

I wonder how many of those people who do not have a high school diploma or a GED/TASC have children? And how much time do they spend encouraging their children to study, or reading to them, or helping them? There is no real way to hold people accountable for letting their kids skip school. Also - if there are that many people here without HS diplomas - that is close to or more that 10% of the city's population!! It's terrible. Believe me, if we get a casino they will not be working there.

I think I am going to be sick. Dismantle the whole thing - it is a money pit. Our vets can get their care at top grade hospitals instead of this den of thieves.

I have to wonder how safe it is to send out 18 year olds into this city to look for dogs - many of the unlicensed are pit bulls and many of the owners are not going to be all that interested in spending money on their dogs. And before all the pit lovers get crazy - if you drive around this city you will see many of them with big chains on their necks - and it's not for looks.

You could never buy alcohol and cigarettes with food stamps. One issue is that you also cannot buy things like toilet paper which is a necessity.

While I realize that the taxes here are way too high - how does a person who already owes 135 thousand expect to pay that and then renovate the building - at which time they will raise the taxes!! With all due respect - a gym just does not seem to be what's needed there as the Y is already downtown and another gym is opening on Liberty shortly.

The city and county are getting only 5.7 million each - is that per year???? Why is it not a percentage?? If all the pols think this is so great, let's not take a specific amount, let's get a percentage of the profits.
