|To see what kind of neighbor Max Gash is, check out his "hog lot" advertising next to Mr. Cheeks driveway on State Road 142. He's not in the hog business, but rather is placing an eyesore next to his neighbors for spite. That has been there for several years with up-dated painted signs this year. There are a number of people that could dispute his "good standing" in the community!|

|I have a special dislike for child molesters. Howsever, it seems that by posting signs and continuously calling attention to the man, they are their own worst enemy in damaging the neighborhood. He knows that you are aware and angry, and is not likely to antagonize you further with that behavior. Meanwhile, you have advertised an atmosphere that has ruined a business and hurt home sales.|

|Reality check - I'll thank that illegal alien Obama when he moves to Mexico. You are blind. Enforcing the border while granting amnesty to millions at our expense? You no doubt voted for the wordt President ever. He's trying to turn o0ur country over to Muslims, illegal aliens and gays, all for their vote for his socialistic programs. As for Lugar being "most respected", have you followed hi voting record. You are in danger of ear infections where you keep your head!|
Good article Russell.
|Consolidation might be the only answer|
Friday, August 20, 2010: 9:55 pm
|During my over 40 years at Eminence,I have seen us have to expand the building several times (as I was told by various boards), in order to meet State requirements in order not to have consolidation or be closed. All of this was to serve approximately the same number of students that it used to, and still does serve. One self-serving Superintendant even had a separate building erected for his office.|
During these years we have seen lean times when teachers had provided some of the supplies that should have been provided by taxes. During these same periods, the gym has been refurbished a number of times. When I ask why spend money on that when other things need attention, I'm told it's from a different fund. If not used, the State will remove that fund. True or False?? I don't know. But, it seems that the school should be able to use funds as needed rather than dictated.
When I went to school, the emphasis was on teaching and learning instead of swimming pools, tennis courts, fancy football fields and purchasing softball parks (like Mooresville), and of course basketball gyms. We've always had sports in schools, but not to the extent and expense as today.
The schools closed as mentioned in another article were mostly one room school houses. As transportation improved and roads improved, people went to larger single facilities as the population grew. If a school like Eminence is forced to close, Eminence will no doubt become a "Ghost" town, as that is the glue that helps keep the community together.
Consolidation requires children to be on the road more hours a day, more travel expense and handicapping children who live further away when it comes to after school activities.
If the State could be trusted not to hit us with a surprise major real estate tax increase on top of it all, I think we should be able to stand a 10% increase for the school over what we presently pay. It was lowered enough in the last several years to afford that type of increase.
|K2 retailers not happy about ban on drug|
Friday, August 20, 2010: 11:38 am
The politicians are trying to protect the public from the drug heads and thieves that take this stuff. I know for a fact that when these types of users can no longer afford the products and work steady, they turn to theft and worse to survive.

|State road 42 between Mooresville and Monrovia is a testimony to how inconsiderate and poorly organized INDOT really is! They remind me of the old "home improvement" businesses that sold jobs they couldn't man as promised, but "spiked" the job so the owner couldn't back out of the sale.|
If INDOT can't man or fund the jobs they've started, don't "spike" too many to complete. They are not only hurting businesses, but costing people who travel these roads time and gas money.
|Tricky issue of property rights put to the test in Morgan County|
Friday, June 4, 2010: 12:42 pm
|Even considering the possibility of a "camp" of this type is a sad commentary for the direction our country is moving. To allow this is to condone the "camp". |
Do the names Sodom and Gomorrah ring a bell? God will not be mocked! We, from the President on down, will be held accountable for our actions. There is a much higher Court which will pass judgement. One where the ACLU and liberal judges rulings will be overturned.
Unfortunately, with all of the education at our disposal, our leaders are too ignorant to acknowledge that the more ungodly we become, conditions worsen,crime increases, and the unnatural becomes natural!

We do not live in this world alone. Property rights are good up to a point. However, when we choose to junk up our property to the point of being a health hazzard, or, to the point where it affects the value of a neighbors property, something must be done. Neighbors have rights also.
As for working prisoners, idle hands are the devils playground! There are no victimless crimes that put these folks in jail or prison. Speaking from family experiences, I say that the non-violent offenders should be put to work on road and clean-up projects for the county where incarcerated. Allow them a small hourly wage (a portion to be saved for release date), the rest for commissary. No additional time off for work done. Good behavior time is enough.
Welcome to the real world.
