  1. They have chased a few good doctors out of this area. You can't keep the good ones if you treat them like garbage and try to force them to go against their morals in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
  2. Joe Biden, 10/22/2020, 9:13pm via Twitter: "220,000 deaths. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this: Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain President of the United States." BBC Word News, 5/12/2022 8:15am via Twitter: "United States passes one million Covid deaths."
  3. Depends largely on who you ask. Regarding the old homemade formula recipe: Some are saying the Karo (an ingredient) used by previous generations isn't the same as the stuff today and absolutely not to use it. Some are also saying not to import it from elsewhere because of the ingredients that are allowed in some places and not others. I'm on the side of a fed baby is better than a hungry baby. Goat's milk, wet nurse, old timey formula recipe, imported, whatever.
  4. I'm pretty sure there was a vehicle involved for a good many years. I'm not just advocating for blame on him, but on the Board and the Auditing staff that should have caught all of it years ago--or did, but didn't say anything because they were perhaps also involved.
  5. I'm pretty sure there was someone above him that started this practice. I believe there is even a "fair scholarship" available under that name. *Not condoning what was done. It was wrong and people knew it was wrong regardless of whose idea it was or why it was done.
  6. Amish have lots of "English" that may offer to host one for them for a fee. This specific one may not have one, but I would not confidently say "none" of them do.
  7. It looks ridiculous and it's not doing anything.
  8. Not to make light of the charges against this man--but can we talk about the stupid strap on his hat in this picture for a second? What is that doing? It's under his lip, not his chin. I don't think he's wearing it properly.
  9. You don't get my point: tax dollars are being used. Mine and yours. Tax dollars--that is what grant money is. (With the knowledge that SOME grant money isn't tax dollars but made by some rich soul who wants something done their way and offers to pay for it--but I'm sure that's not the case here) You can call it whatever you want, but it is OUR money that someone else took by way of taxes and earmarked it for something special to garner feel good vibes from certain people. You can look at the pretty packaging all you want, but it doesn't change the contents. WE are paying for it.
  10. Key word in your first sentence: "seem" Crumbling zombie town with great roads or pretty "spots" with crappy roads? Seems like an unfair choice. My overall point is it shouldn't have to be a choice. Designating money for pretty when you have failing infrastructure is silly and we can thank politicians for that. To overly simplify, that is like putting a new front door on your house when all of the windows are broken when the door worked just fine.
  11. While your point is valid that it's better "we" get it over "them", grant money is still usually from tax dollars. I would prefer to have my tax dollars go to fixing our horrible streets first. Priorities get skewed. The appearance of that bank does not matter if the town is full of potholes. Can you imagine the people passing through, "Boy that park up there looked nice, but man, I broke a shock just down the road from it."
  12. "Everybody" doesn't already know...... I do not.
  13. Is "the man" still a secret? I mean this is still small town USA.
  14. The Tannery Dam project with the fence to "control geese" around half of the water? Because geese can't fly..... or walk... That said, I do like the sidewalk, the bridge, the lights, and of course the fountain to help keep the water from turning a revolting green. I'm sure that most of that was to make it look pretty for the hotel that, as far as I know, none of the people that lived around there really wanted to be built there. We won't discuss who owns the hotel..... On a nice day, take a drive over and take a walk around. It is a nice area.
  15. And many of them don't all report those tips--so they don't have to pay taxes on them. Then they qualify for "bennies" that those of us that can't hide income pay for.
