Discussion Forum
Exchange Of The Day

SUBJECT: Meeting The Mayor

* Now, in El Kabong's world, isn't that grounds for a letter to ones boss(es) suggestion / implying / proposing / recommending / advocating / hinting that someone deserves to be canned?

* Mr Crouse admits "even as he mentioned how he no longer visited Mybirdie and had Don Sinclair's tweets blocked" 

Curious that a Mayor boycotting a city licensed business is okay.

Cleary he surrounds himself with Yes men and women, avoids all who counter his way of thinking.  Perfect example of the time tested saying "Fools seldom Differ”

* There are so many holes in what His Lordship had to say that it is ridiculous. From what I understand is that Lynda and her better half attended a silent auction and won a dinner with Crouse. She grit her teeth the whole time! As far as an independent auditor, yes Skeptic is correct. Cam Mackay did consult an expert and yes it is possible. Crouse knows of this fact but of course would he want one snooping around city hall?

SATA board invites all members to join us in discussion of current events in our municipal government.

All taxpayers are, as always, invited to attend.

We propose to begin with a "state of SATA" report from the board followed by comment from our members.

If members agree, we'll move on to discussion of a list (that our chairman will present) of current events at city hall that the board believes threaten to impact taxpayers negatively. We'll adjust the list according to members' wishes.

One issue that we're particularly concerned about that we'd like to spend some time on is Mr. Draper's declared intention to (personally) sue John Doe (over the Third Floor Blog), and council's agreement that the City will fund his suit. We think this has potential to harm taxpayers considerably. And we want to discuss with members the extent to which SATA ought to involve itself in this issue.

Please don't miss this.

Things To Think About

Things To Think About
If the world was a logical place, men would ride horses sidesaddle.

What is a “free” gift? Aren’t all gifts free?

They told me I was gullible .. and I believed them.

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he’ll never be able to edge his car onto a freeway.




A roundup of bits from the web.

* 45 cows killed by single lightning strike near Darby, Montana.

Armadillo Invasion: Warm-Weather Critters Expanding East

An armored invasion is underway across the midwestern and eastern United States: Armadillos are moving into new territories once thought unsuitable for the warm-weather creatures.

There are 20 known species of armadillo, but only one—the nine-banded armadillo—has ventured out of Latin America. The species arrived in Texas during the 1880s and has been spreading into new habitats ever since.
