To George Washington. He can be the father of my country anytime. Ever been to his place up in Virginia? Awesome is the word.
Ready for Daylight Savings Time again? Only 18 days!
Well that was three hours of my life I’ll never get back. If you were there good for you, If not, well I’m not sure I even know what to say. It was tedious at best. It’s no longer amusing and the entertainment value is waning. After an hour + long budget meeting that almost everyone in the room understood to mean we are low on funds we had two Councilmen propose we spend more money on another investigation. I can’t make this stuff up. When asked where the money was going to come from Councilman Fuller said “ we’ll figure something out”. I swear to God. They were voted down 3 to 2. I think my favorite part was when Craig apologized to the crowd for a misunderstanding. He said “I’m sorry” to the room in general and Councilman Perkins muttered “yes you are”. Actually I take that back. My favorite part was the King Cake brought in by Diana H for all to enjoy. It was yummy.
If you haven’t heard, Council agreed to put off Councilman Fullers request to take his violation to court. He was granted 60 days to clean up his Aspen property. His premise for requesting a court challenge to the ordinance is that he feels as a taxpayer he has the right to use his property any way he wants to. I almost completely agree. Almost. It would be interesting to see that play out in court, but again, more fiscally responsible heads intervened and decided the court cost would be prohibitive.
