I can't wait to hear Ransdalls plan to bail us out.. The porn tax hasn't came to fruition. The internet tax hasn't came to fruition.. What else was she planning? Cracks me up, a man in his position doesn't know how to do his job, and makes campain promises he never actually looked in to, he just takes some fromer interns word on it.

The city of St. Robert are his friends who don't want this Law Enforcement tax, but there aren't many at all in the city who actually vote on anything, they can't produce the numbers at the polls to stop squat...  The city of St. Robert's only strength is to lobby the Commissioners to stop the chance of the tax in the first place. Ransdall fears that they will somehow muster the votes against him if he doesn't fight this tax.

I have always thought it was the philosophy here that oil was cheap from overseas, cheaper than producing it here, and there's nothing wrong with being the last palce on earth with resources when the rest of the world runs out.. We can set the price then.
This is not a copy and paste so dont take quote for qoute as the allmighty word!
I was watching Jay Leno tonight and the guest has wrote and book(and of course on the selling trail) but anyway,supposedly the United States is the Middle East of natural gas and the conversion of our cars is so simple. Why havent we heard more input on this type of energy? Is is OPEC and all the large oil companies dont want us to convert? The mass total of the United States consumption is in the area of Trucking. Why not convert the trucks to natural gas? Make it mandatory, to haul?
I found this very interesting and it sure makes me say Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

To Borrow Ransdalls quote from the Daily Guide..

Ransdall said he’d like to vote and if he were able, would have voted in favor of giving preference to Bassett Insurance as a local business.
“But I’m not sure I can,” Ransdall said.

Bill............ I think it is time after two years as the Presiding Commissioner that you figure out how you are supposed to do your job..

I looked on that page and it didn't say anything about whether or not either candidate has ever smoked pot. That is how I decide who to vote for. That is the information I need.

Fifty years ago, a chemist named Stanley Miller conducted a famous experiment to investigate how life could have started on Earth.

Recently, scientists re-analyzed his results using modern technology and found a new implication: The original sparks for life on our planet could have come from volcanic eruptions.

The 1950s experiment was designed to test how the ingredients necessary for life could arise.

Miller and his University of Chicago mentor Harold Urey used a system of closed flasks containing water and a gas of simple molecules thought to be common in Earth's early atmosphere. They zapped the gas with an electric spark (representing lightning on ancient Earth), and found that after a couple of weeks the water turned brown. It turned out that amino acids, the complex molecules that make up proteins, had formed from the simple materials in the flasks.

The finding was lauded as proof that the fundamental building blocks of life could be derived from natural processes on our planet.

Recently, Scripps Institution of Oceanography researcher Jeffrey Bada, who was Miller's graduate student when the experiment was first performed, stumbled upon vials containing residues from the tests. In a slight variation on the famous experiment, in some of these trials, steam had been injected into the gas to simulate conditions in the cloud of an erupting volcano. These results had never been made public.

In the newly recovered samples, Bada and his team found 22 amino acids, 10 of which had never been found in any other experiment like this.

"The apparatus Stanley Miller paid the least attention to gave the most exciting results," said team member Adam Johnson, a graduate student at Indiana University. "We suspect part of the reason for this was that he did not have the analytical tools we have today, so he would have missed a lot."

And, after re-analyzing the samples from the original trials that had been published in 1953, the team also found that those flasks contained far more organic molecules than Stanley Miller realized.

"We believed there was more to be learned from Miller's original experiment," Bada said. "We found that in comparison to his design everyone is familiar with from textbooks, the volcanic apparatus produces a wider variety of compounds."

The researchers published the results of their new analysis in the Oct. 16 issue of the journal Science.

Over the past 50 years, scientists have changed their thinking about what elements were present in the atmosphere of early Earth. Miller used methane, hydrogen and ammonia in his experiments, though now researchers think Earth's ancient atmosphere was mostly carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen.

"At first glance, if Earth's early atmosphere had little of the molecules used in Miller's classic experiment, it becomes difficult to see how life could begin using a similar process," said team member Daniel Glavin of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "However, in addition to water and carbon dioxide, volcanic eruptions also release hydrogen and methane gases. Volcanic clouds are also filled with lightning, since collisions between volcanic ash and ice particles generate electric charge. Since the young Earth was still hot from its formation, volcanoes were probably quite common then."

How good can it be, or for that matter it's reputation if getting in is not dependant on your grade point avererage, but rather the fact that they draw from a hat.. A lot of people drop out because it's not based on your qualifications. I am not making this up, they draw names.

Don't forget the Commissioners wanted  to spend money on a secretary to do their work, then an economic development person to do their work, then they wanted to spend money to build a web page they hoped would bury mine, so no one would notice their errors.. Good luck with that.. All the time playing ignorant to the obvious deficit that was just over the horizon. They knew January one that by cutting JB's budget, and giving it to another department, that they had to end up with a defecit.. I call that a no brainer.. They call it management..

National News / Explosion at law firm in Dalton GA. One dead..
« on: October 17, 2008, 05:36:41 PM »
(DALTON) -- At least four people went to a hospital after an explosion ripped through a Dalton, GA law firm.
A federal official told NBC that the device was thrown from a passing car through a window of McCamy, Philips, Tuggle and Fordham, LLP around 10 a.m. The firm is located on West Crawford Street in downtown Dalton.
The Dalton Daily Citizen newspaper reports police are questioning a man they took into custody. It says the Whitfield County District Attorney has identified the the man as Lloyd Cantrell.
The Dalton Police Department is the lead agency in charge. Assisting in the investigation is the FBI, GBI, ATF and Whitfield County Fire and EMS. The GBI bomb squad is currently clearing the building.
The four victims were transported to Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton. NBC reports one of the victims will be moved to a burn unit later.

Thanks, glad we could help.. Looking forward to bringing a lot more to all of you starting next week.. What's happening here will be unprecedented in this area, matter of fact we might be the example the rest of the people will do things down the road. This has been done before and failed, but we have an advantage over others, it's called purpose, rather than greed.. Hope you all will love it.. I know I will love it..
Thanks Rick for the moderation. I believe, as you stated, the people on here aren't the the same kind of people that are being awful on that other website. I know that I could not continue being here as often if it were a negative place.

Just to remind you, when my husband was in Kuwait, a couple of years ago the people on this board saved my sanity by bringing me companionship at anytime of day or night. I was very depressed.

Also, this board got me educated about this community and caused me to become active in positive works here in Pulaski County.

Thanks again.

Sorry this was off topic. I just felt the need to reply to Rick, out loud!

Class act..
I am going to let this topic rest, it seems most of the responses come from people who have a one track mind or just want to believe that all cops are good cops. No one ever said anything about trying to get out of a ticket. This site has a limited group of people who are so narrow and little minded that I am not going to waste any more time discussing or debating my issue. I am even sorry that Fort Leonardwood supposts this town being that I am a veteran. I will be traveling there again, and probably soon, but I won't be around the likes of the people on this site! :karma:

People love unfetered nastiness.. The Daily Guide almost had me move in that direction until they shut that part down..
That's terrible.  Isn't anyone watching what's going on??  Makes me sick.
