Quite an interesting week as I attempt to recover from this cold that is just a ...well, you get the idea. Real nasty and the meds just knock me out.
First off is the coronation of President WOW (Walk On Water). At least WOW had the good sense to put a damper on the fact that a miracle will not happen in the next week or two over issue number one - the economy. Good move as he attempts to toss money at the problem just like the former whatever his name was attempted to do. Use to be only the Democrats tried to solve every issue with wads or dough but the Republicans have certainly adopted that tactic. WOW also mentioned bipartisanship and IMO patient zero on that issue has been our very own very senior senator and Bork. I have been a real pessimist on the economy for over a year and see this getting worse and worse. Hope I am dead wrong.
This week the local BOS has been in the news and that certainly has been trashed around on this blog. Speaking of trashed around - BBB (Bellicose Bumpkin Bashing) has taken on a life of its own among those who post here. Just don’t exceed my very liberal limits on that and BB is always welcome to respond. Back to the BOS issue over the IGA and that has been blogged to death. The comments certainly make for enjoyable reading and I’d suggest everyone check out the various local blogs for comments and commentary.
Steve McKinnon has announced his run for Steve Spataro’s seat. Your comments or any by Steve (either) is certainly welcome. Just try to keep it issue oriented and not personal so that usually puts a damper on my comments.
The CPA is either in limbo or dead and I’m leaning towards dead. Maybe next time around especially if I’m wrong on that economy thing. Never did see a reply to LA’s figures on open space that were correct.
The state has proposed a cut in local aid to the tune of 128 Million. I assume all will not suffer equally and if things usually go the way they do for our hamlet we will suffer more than most. I suspect more to come as the state will do this piece meal. On top of that is the idea of one rep is to raise the gas tax by twenty-nine cents per gallon. This will in addition to toll increases and as The Herald noted the state managed to add 2,100 jobs when reduction was suppose to take place. Needless to say there is no joy in 351 Mudville’s over any of it. Ah…the joys of a one party state!
