Here we go again! Never enough money for Olympia. Contact your legislators, help them feel the heat. They are negotiating a budget now, they could use a reminder.
What ever happened to being kind? This lady loves birds as well. In fact it is the highlight of her week. She makes the several block walk no matter the weather at least once per week.
@Wallyworldguy and @ Barracuda, I wish the original article had been more clear on why the council chose the 2 pool option. Clearly 2 pools serve more of the community, but what was left out is that 2 pools provides a better chance of the facility paying for itself. Yes the facility proposed is bigger, but two pools attract more visitors and thus revenues. I am sure you both want a fiscally responsible solution, to my mind that is the 2 pool option.
I would hope that all community members take the time to fully research the issues and visit with city council members . I am not on the Rebuild Memorial Committe, but I have heard some of the members speak to the particulars being addressed in letters to the editor. The Rebuild Memorial committee has done a very good job of researching options, costs, and viability. They are a wealth of information. Please take the time to contact them, they would be happy to help you understand the plans.
For the record, I am enthusiastically supporting the 2 pool option.
Well at the time they did have more than muskets and flint locks. They also had artillery (field cannons, garrison cannons, howitzers, mortars). Perhaps you should know of what you speak PeggyJoy? You might also read some of Madison's and Jefferson's letters. Not to mention Adams documents of the period. They were distrustful of government and felt the people needed to be able to defend themselves from government as well as others with ill intentions. Funny how those without a logical argument resort to name calling. Fools indeed.
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Shall we pick and choose which amendment we agree with? I don't think we want other people determining for us what we 'need'. Perhaps someday, we won't 'need' to vote, or have free speech? If the founders really meant to limit arms, why didn't they make spell out the we could have rifles, but not cannons? They said 'arms'. Many do enjoy hunting with AR-15's. Some just want to collect them. Others just love to target practice. It is their business, Peggy Joy. Someone having different interests , doesn't make them insane.
I think Oreo Corp is a Key Bank subsidiary.
