A Simple Answer For The Mayor

The mayor wonders what a local radio station wants from him. I didn't hear him say this but I can read headlines on postings. I can answer the mayor's question very simply. JOBS. That's right mayor, JOBS, real long lasting, sustainable JOBS. Now you can't create them, no government can create jobs except the ones we pay for.

New Gun Law

You break into my house, you deserve to look down the barrel of my gun. I'm glad the lawmakers are finally looking out for the law abiding citizens instead of the criminals for a change.

Has the Blade gone too far in their reporting on Stainbrook? My 10 observations

Right now there are two things that are making people shake their heads wondering what is going on. 1.
