  • 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.
    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.

  • 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.

From someone who lives in Montana...

---By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana
last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has
not covered. I feel that since Bill and I live here and we were at the
airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you
decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share
this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address
before you forward this on.

On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President
would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his
healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and
deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not
release ANY details other than the date.

On about Tuesday Bill found out that they would be holding the "Town
Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Bill knows EVERYONE at the
airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny
town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose
to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could
not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it easily. It
is totally secluded from the public.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held
a large amount of folks with sufficient parking.
(gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and
would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly.
Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it
was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was,
especially during a recession. $$$$$

Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would
be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would
be arriving around 12:30 Friday.

Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were
printed at a Local printing shop per White House request.
Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.
This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS
branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in
for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it
would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone
heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the
White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are
paying for.

On Friday Bill and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups
that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a
permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be.
A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union)
members drove up onto the20area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It
was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to
make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested
the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the
SEIU crowd.
The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the
age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and
PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh, and
Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professing abortion rights
with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these folks did
have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)

Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to
avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though
SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very
intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.

So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade
signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses,
doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been
driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store,
made a sign, and came to protest.

If you are wondering about the press.....Well, all of the major
networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were
conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None
of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that t hey
knew anything about the crowds.
We did have some local news media around us from this state and Idaho
. Speaking of the local media...they were invited. However, all
questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the
event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of their
head.

It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the
White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to
make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government
healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance
woes........the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and
Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House asked
those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING was
staged!!!!!!!!!!!

I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White House.
The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I felt I was
not living in the United States of America , more like the USSR !! I
was physically nauseous. Bill and I have been around when Presidents
or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am truly very
frightened for our country. America needs your prayers and your
voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know the
issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If they
are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town one can
only imagine what is going on in Washington DC . Scary!!

As Kathy said, "It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the
White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail ...."
That's what the Big O wants, TOTAL CONTROL.
Over my dead body!
