  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

Law enforcement officials used a backhoe to free a man who became stuck for hours inside a storm sewer pipe after he fled from police officers when they tried talking with him. 
The man was pulled out Tuesday evening after spending about seven hours inside the drainage system in the Grand Rapids suburb of Wyoming.
Authorities had suspected he might have been wanted in connection with a Tampa, Fla., slaying but they said Wednesday he was not.
Officials said he was suffering from exposure, incoherent and unable to walk on his own. He was barely able to move by the time police freed him from the pipe during the cold evening.
"It was dark down there. He was literally feeling his way with his hands," Grand Rapids police Lt. Ralph Mason told The Grand Rapids Press.
He said the drainage pipes varied in diameter from 24 to 42 inches.
The manhunt started at a turkey factory in Grand Rapids near the Wyoming border.
A team made up of local FBI agents, Grand Rapids police officers and Kent County sheriff's deputies responded to a tip that a Florida murder suspect might be working at the factory.
When they tried to talk with the man, he fled and jumped into a nearby creek. Witnesses told police they saw a man cross the creek and go into a drainage pipe.
Michigan State Police troopers removed manhole covers and searched through the underground tunnels. The troopers halted their underground search after finding heavy muck, roots and debris blocking their way.
More officers were brought in, as well as a Wyoming engineer who helped determine the layout of the underground pipe system before digging down and extracting the man.
"They're really old pipes. There is not a lot of room to breathe," Mason said.

Maybe they should have left him in there. Oh ya that would be inhuman.
