  • 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.

  • 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: 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 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.

Actor David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

June 4, 2009, 9:10 AM EST 

BANGKOK (AP) -- Actor David Carradine, star of the 1970s TV   series "Kung Fu" who also had a   wide-ranging career in the movies, has been found dead in the Thai capital,   Bangkok. A news report said he was found hanged in his hotel room and was   believed to have committed suicide.  A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, Michael Turner, confirmed the death of the   72-year-old actor. He said the embassy was informed by Thai authorities that   Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide   further details out of consideration for his family.  The Web site of the Thai newspaper The Nation cited unidentified police   sources as saying Carradine was found Thursday hanged in his luxury hotel   room.  It said Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot a movie and had been staying at the   hotel since Tuesday.  The newspaper said Carradine could not be contacted after he failed to appear   for a meal with the rest of the film crew on Wednesday, and that his body was   found by a hotel maid at 10 a.m. Thursday morning. The name of the movie was not   immediately available.  It said a preliminary police investigation found that he had hanged himself   with a cord used with the room's curtains. It cited police as saying he had been   dead at least 12 hours and there was no sign that he had been assaulted.  A police officer at Bangkok's Lumpini precinct station would not confirm the   identity of the dead man, but said the luxury Swissotel Nai Lert Park hotel had   reported that a male guest killed himself there.

Carradine was a leading member of a venerable Hollywood acting family that   included his father, character actor John Carradine, and brother Keith.  In all, he appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby. One of   his prominent early film roles was as singer Woody Guthrie in Ashby's 1976   biopic "Bound for Glory."  But he was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin priest   traveling the 1800s American frontier West in the TV series "Kung Fu," which   aired in 1972-75.  He reprised the role in a mid-1980s TV movie and played Caine's grandson in   the 1990s syndicated series "Kung Fu: The Legend   Continues."  He returned to the top in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two-part saga "Kill Bill."  The character, the worldly father figure of a pack of crack assassins, was a   shadowy presence in 2003's "Kill Bill Vol. 1." In that film, one of Bill's   former assassins (Uma Thurman) begins a vengeful rampage against her   old associates.  In "Kill Bill Vol. 2," released in 2004, Thurman's character   comes face to face again with Bill himself. The role brought Carradine a Golden   Globe nomination as best supporting actor.  Bill was a complete contrast to his TV character Kwai Chang Caine, the   soft-spoken refugee from a Shaolin monastery, serenely spreading wisdom and   battling bad guys in the Old West. He left after three seasons, saying the show   had started to repeat itself.  After "Kung Fu," Carradine starred in the 1975 cult flick "Death Race 2000." He starred with Liv Ullmann in Bergman's "The Serpent's Egg" in 1977 and with his brothers in the 1980   Western "The Long Riders."  But after the early 1980s, he spent two decades doing mostly low-budget   films. Tarantino's films changed that.  "All I've ever needed since I more or less retired from studio films a couple   of decades ago ... is just to be in one," Carradine told The Associated Press in   2004.  "There isn't anything that Anthony Hopkins or Clint Eastwood or Sean Connery   or any of those old guys are doing that I couldn't do," he said. "All that was   ever required was somebody with Quentin's courage to take and put me in the   spotlight."  One thing remained a constant after "Kung Fu": Carradine's interest in   Oriental herbs, exercise and philosophy. He wrote a personal memoir called   "Spirit of Shaolin" and continued to make instructional videos on tai chi and   other martial arts.  In the 2004 interview, Carradine talked candidly about his past boozing and   narcotics use, but said he had put all that behind him and stuck to coffee and   cigarettes.  "I didn't like the way I looked, for one thing. You're kind of out of control   emotionally when you drink that much. I was quicker to anger."  "You're probably witnessing the last time I will ever answer those   questions," Carradine said. "Because this is a regeneration. It is a   renaissance. It is the start of a new career for me.  "It's time to do nothing but look forward."

This is one of these things that really makes you stop and wonder... why?

Why did he do this?  What demons was he battling that made him turn to death?
