  • 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: Is that true Valor? Did he ask you what you wanted?
    March 01, 2016, 04:55:37 AM
  • 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.

A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a  monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and  says, My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the  night?

>   

>

>

>
   

The  monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix  his car. As the man  tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound; a sound like  no other that he has ever heard.  The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but  they say, We can't tell you because you're not a  monk.

>

>


>

The  man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about  his merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in  front of the same monastery. 
>

>

>

>

The  monks again accept him, feed him, and even fix his  car..

>


>

That  night, he hears the same strange mesmerizing sound that he  had heard years earlier.

>

>

>

>

>

The  next morning, he asks what the sound was, but the monks  reply,

We  can't tell you because you're not a  monk.

>

>

>

>

The  man says, all right, all right. I'm dying to know.

If  the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become  a monk, how do I become a monk?


>

The  monks reply, you must travel the earth and tell us how many  blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand  pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a  monk.

>

> >

The  man sets about his task. Some forty-five years later, he  returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, I  have travelled the earth and devoted my life to the task  demanded and have found what you had asked for. There are  371,145,236,284,232 blades of grass and  231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the  earth.


>
>

>

The  monks reply, congratulations, you are correct, and you are  now considered a monk .

We shall now show you the way  to the  sound.

>

>

>

The  monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk  says, the sound is behind that  door.

>



>

The  man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He asks,  May I have the key ?

>



The  monks give him the key, and he opens the  door.

>

>

Behind  the wooden door is another door made of stone...  The man  requests the  key to the stone door.

>

>

>

The  monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door  made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who  provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one made  of sapphire  And so it went  on until the man had gone through doors of  emerald,...

>

>


>

>...silver,  topaz, and amethyst.

>

>


>

Finally,  the monks  say, This is the key to the last door  .

>


>

>



>

The  man is relieved to be at the end. He unlocks the door,  turns the knob, and behind that door he is astonished to  find the source of that strange sound. It is truly an  amazing and unbelievable sight

..  But I can't tell you what it is because you're not a  monk.
