Hey my in-laws are coming in for a week and I’m looking to buy a bed. A full/double will work. If you have one to sell drop me a line.
Hopefully there will be one more investigation and then our fair city can move on. Yep, I’m thinking one more only this time let’s have a look at the folks behind the table. Let’s make sure all is above board and legit. If there was no illegal investigation or ethics violations or collusion then for God’s sake let’s put this fiasco behind us and move on. If there was then it’s obvious they need to be removed from office because resignation is beyond them. Come early and I’m bringing a red shiny “go cup” just because I can. It might be iced tea maybe not.
SNWTF?! Jean Garst and Larry Tonjes are back from sailing and their first order of business is to file an open records request for all of the City Administrators credit card receipts back to 2007? What the hell is the matter with you morons??
To the mom/friend/citizen/neighbor who is leery of our officers. I offer a different version. Our officers serve our city in a tremendous capacity. I have never failed to deliver a smile and a wave or get one in return. If I had a question or a problem I would not hesitate to address it with the Chief or the Mayor or any officer I was familiar with. I would have no qualms about doing so. I have in the past and although I wasn’t crazy about the response I got, once I was exposed to the other side of the story I really couldn’t disagree. I am absolutely tickled to death the Islander is running bios’ on our officers. I tried to pull that off a few years ago but It never got off the ground. Thanks Dennis and Islander crew! I think if we don’t know at least half of our police force we are doing ourselves and them a great disservice. The more we know the better things get. Mostly.
An elderly couple Margaret and Bert, moved to Texas .
Bert had always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy
boots so, seeing some on sale, he bought them and wore them
home. Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said
to his wife, 'Notice anything different about me?'
Margaret looked him over. 'Nope.' Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom,
undressed and walked back into the kitchen completely
naked except for the boots. Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time,
'Notice anything different NOW?' Margaret looked up and exclaimed, 'Bert, what's
different? It's hanging down today, it was hanging down
yesterday, it'll be hanging down again tomorrow!'
Furious, Bert yelled, 'AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT'S
HANGING DOWN, MARGARET?'
'Nope,' she replied. 'IT'S HANGING DOWN, BECAUSE IT'S LOOKING
AT MY NEW BOOTS!!!!' Without changing her expression,
'Shoulda bought a hat Bert"
