|I don't understand how a township will allow a fire department to go under. I've read how happy some of the people are who are running for the board. All I can say to those is I hope you never get laid off or have your pay cut and lose your health insurance. And I hope you never have an emergency, because it's no guarantee the fire department will be there in time to help. we are all out to help police and other social type of professions, but fire department we want to cut. Why? And to make things worse you have firefighters put there body out on the line everyday for you, and they have no health insurance and they make 7.25 an hour. I hope you all sleep well in Madison Township tonight, there's 20 some firefighters wondering how there going to pay the bills and keep there family healthy with no insurance. It's not right and its upsetting|

|They could rent the station out. It would help cover the wasteful spending they have been doing for years. Hopefully the trustee learned a lesson and stop the spending.|

That's great Lassiter....I love it!! Speaking of Quyle's Kingdom why doesn't anyone ever mention the million dollar monstrosity that Quyle wants to build right next door to the recently closed fire station?? You know....the "Community Center". Even though they got a grant it still taxpayer money to run it. If there was truly such a demand for something like that don't you think private enterprise would be all over it?? This community cannot even sustain a movie theater, a bowling alley or a miniature golf facility why does anyone think this thing would make a go of it? But hey we can cut money for the fire department. It's all about priorities folks and apparently some are screwed up.

|It's taken about 25 years of legal immigration form Marion to Morgan county and here is what we have. Socialist and liberals or Social-libs running things. A lot came from the inner city and thought if they moved to the country their teenage children wouldn't be in gangs any longer just like their daughters scull and bones tattoo would fade quickly from her chest. |
One of the problems the North east corner is experiencing is that many of the immigrants were used to the city giveaways. They were used to letting politicians taking what they want, how they want and if it isn't there any longer they will find some corrupt creative way to pick the pockets of their serfs. OOp's, did I say serfs. Worth studing. If not for a serf there would be no kingdom or Quyledom or we may know them as "Indisociallibs".
What's going on here is the serfs and Indisociallibs move into an area that had some good country folk living in it. These good folks didn't like seeing their area fill-up with housing additions, their roads over-run with cars that kills their dogs and now prevents them from taking evening walks. They didn't like it when they put a tattoo parlor in the local high-school and a hip-hop club for criminals in a local family shopping center.
After a while they gave-up on the ship sinking on the daughters chest and got involved in politics. The problems are now coming to a point of do or die.
I vote for the conservative minded that knows the only way to correct a spending problem is to stop spending at ALL COST. Only a fool will live and operate by crisis. Crisis operations will crash and burn everything in it's path, business, households, families, marriages, hot-dog stands, countries and yes folks, very easily townships.
The taxpayers duty is to step in and stop any elected politician that through any form of mismanagement or corruption risk the mere existence of their community.
Now, I love the people of Madison township. I'm friends with more than many. Great people. They just have to stop, take control, rather through the courts or voting both or public disobedient means like acorn used on the bankers as they sat on their front lawn with sighs 24-7 till they got what they wanted. This works on politicians also.
I think everyone can only look to the responsible Madison county folks a hero's in the way they stopped the quarter billion dollar shrine building programs the social-libs tried to shove-down the throats of the struggling good folks up there. All they have to do is copy the same fever and clean-up the township.
P. S. No insult intended concerning tattoos. Just don't mis-lead your daughter. You can comfort her by letting her know the battle ship will eventually wrinkle and sink.
God love us all and wants all to come to know Him and worship Him in Spirit and Truth. Now that's what's really important. If this would happen all the rest won't mean a thing.

|Hey Uncle Joe -|
What rock have you been hiding under? The residents/taxpayers of Madison Township have been asking questions of Mr. Quyle over both his wish list items of a "Hike/Bike Trail" and the "Community Center". Taxpayers in Madison Township have been against both of these projects for years. Apparently some of the elected officials think that the people who foot the bill (i.e. taxpayers) do not have a right to ask questions or express an opinion! If Mr. Quyle et al would try to use some honest conversation and LISTEN to the taxpayers, this would all be a moot point.
But, if the fire station on Landersdale Road is actually closed, I agree, why not rent the bay space out, and generate some revenue to pay for the previous emergency loans received by the Township? The building is already there, taxpayers are still paying on the loan for the building, the sign already says it is closed. Maybe Mr.Quyle can contact Mr. Bolin and they can work out a deal that might actually benefit the taxpayers wallet for a change. Just a thought.
Heard there is a meeting being held on Thursday (9/2/10) at the Landersdale Station to discuss the closing of the station. It appears someone got the cart before the horse (again). The closed sign is already up and there is no notice of a meeting on the door (the usual way they provide "public notice"). Maybe they put the Public Notice on the station on 144. Unfortunately for them (the Board and Trustee) State law requires a posting of Public Notices in three (3) separate public locations before a meeting can be held. Guess I will have to hook up the horse and buggy and point my "one tooth hilljack" self over to 144 and see if the notice has been posted there.
Trustee Bolin and Advisor Board, be forewarned, if you do not follow the laws set forth by the State of Indiana, you will just be adding more instances of your neglect in your duties to the public. YOU CANNOT HAVE A MEETING AND CONDUCT PUBLIC BUSINESS WITHOUT LETTING THE PUBLIC KNOW ABOUT IT OR LETTING THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATE. You should start to mind your "p's and q's"; you have already had your hand smacked by the denial of the emergency loan. Do you just wish to show more contempt for the laws you took an oath to uphold?
I am watching . . .

Nice thoughts you profess. What about the taxpayers of Madison Township who are being forced to sell their property or forced into foreclosure because we cannot afford the tax rates the Township seems to think is their private entitlement program?
If the taxpayers do not step in and try to make changes and ask questions, there will not be anyone left in Madison Township to pay the taxes that have supported this neglect of duty. Just come up and drive around Madison Township. The "For Sale" signs and "Foreclosure" signs just seem to multiply daily. Sort of like mushrooms under a pile of manure.
Tell me how well you sleep at night. If you have not "walked in our shoes" you don't know of what you speak. Tread carefully, these tax rates could be coming to your township next. Talk to me then!

Umm, they did. Maybe if you had attended the Community Taxpayers Association meeting at St. Francis hospital the middle of July you would've heard plenty of taxpayers voicing their opinions about that to the little democrat-in-republican's-clothing Quyle that just loves to spend other people's money.
