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.

You remember when HI-FI stereos were top of the line.

 damn I feel old now.

 the flinstones used to be on at night. You saw andy griffith shows the first time around. No twist off caps on beer. The tv took a few minutes to warm up.

 Progress is slow sometimes. I finally got a private line at the house 10 years ago.
