  • 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: 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.

John McCain for theRepublican presidential nomination over Rudy Giuliani and the rest ofthe GOP field, strongly criticizing the former mayor of its home city.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                art.mccain.rudy.gi.jpg height=219                           Sens.

Hillary Clinton for the Democraticnomination.
 "Senator John McCain of Arizona is the onlyRepublican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing fromand on behalf of a small, angry fringe," the paper's editorial boardwrote.
 "With a record of working across the aisle to developsound bipartisan legislation, he would offer a choice to a broaderrange of Americans than the rest of the Republican field."
   The endorsement anticipated readers asking how the New York paper could reject Giuliani,a man it endorsed for re-election in 1997 and praised for his workcleaning up crime in the city and during the time of the September 11,2001 attacks.
 "That man is not running for president," the paper wrote.
"The Rudolph Giuliani of 2008 first shamelessly turned the horror of9/11 into a lucrative business, with a secret client list, thenexploited his city's and the country's nightmare to promote hispresidential campaign," the paper writes, describing Giuliani as "anarrow, obsessively secretive, vindictive man."
 Giuliani played down the harsh words, suggesting that the Times has a liberal editorial staff that often disapproved of him.
"I probably never did anything the New York Times suggested I do ineight years as mayor of New York City, and if I did, I wouldn't beconsidered a conservative Republican," Giuliani said during a Republican debate Thursday night hosted by MSNBC in Boca Raton, Florida.
"I changed welfare, I changed quality of life, I took on homelessness-- I did all the things that they think makes you mean and I believeshow true compassion and true love for people."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    His wasn't the only Republican campaign taking that tack. An e-mail from the campaign of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney sarcastically noted that McCain had been endorsed by "[t]hat bastion of conservative advocacy."
The editorial was hardly full of praise for McCain, despite calling hima "genuine war hero" and a "staunch advocate of campaign financereform."
 "Mr. McCain was one of the first prominent Republicansto point out how badly the war in Iraq was being managed. We wish hecould now see as clearly past the temporary victories produced by Mr.Bush's unsustainable escalation, which have not led to any change inIraq's murderous political calculus," it reads.
 "At the least, he owes Americans a real idea of how he would win this war, which he says he can do."
     The paper praised Clinton's chief rival, Sen. Barack Obama, but called Clinton more qualified for the job.
"It is unfair, especially after seven years of Mr. Bush's ineptleadership, but any Democrat will face tougher questioning about his orher fitness to be commander in chief," it reads.
 "Mrs. Clintonhas more than cleared that bar, using her years in the Senate well toimmerse herself in national security issues, and has won the respect ofworld leaders and many in the American military."
   The Democraticeditorial contrasts Clinton and Obama -- calling her "the brilliant ifat times harsh-sounding senator from New York" and him "theincandescent if still undefined senator from Illinois."  The paper says Clinton "sometimesoverstates the importance of [her] resume," but that upon hearing "herpolicies and answers for America's big problems, we are hugelyimpressed by the depth of her knowledge, by the force of her intellectand by the breadth of, yes, her experience." New York is one of a host of states that will vote during the February 5 Super Tuesday primaries.
