  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..
    August 08, 2016, 07:46:34 AM
  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.
    April 15, 2016, 06:36:14 PM
  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

I scored a 16...
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I'd give my left arm to be ambidextrous...

like Maynard, I am older than dirt....I admit to guessing at the mimeograph one tho....don't really remember that.
I have it on good authority that the Hokey-Pokey really IS what it's all about.

I remember the mimeograph sheets, and they STUNK!  Now I know why so many of the kids volunteered to run off the copies.... never really thought about it before, as I never liked how they made the papers smell.

I got 19 correct, but got lucky on two guesses.  You can still get blackjack chewing gum, wax bottles and many more old favorite treats at Cracker Barrel.  I love those cherry mash candy bars, but can't eat them because of my diet, but that was my favorite (along with chic-o-sticks) when I was a kid.  Also liked zero bars and all penny candy!
....and that night as the moon crossed the mountain, one more Coyote was heard...
