The snow is white, the sky is pale blue and the air is crisp. Despite the return of the head cold, life is pretty good. Saturdays are sleep in, casual cleaning and cinnamon French Toast with real maple syrup. Sipping a cup of yummy Free Trade java, don’t know about you, it’s the simple things I find so rewarding. This is a long Saturday rambling. Read the rest of this entry »

In the opinion sections of newspapers, Lee Hamilton, former U.S. House Representative, wrote Some suggestions for improving Congress. For the most part it’s interesting. Love him or hate him, depends on his topic. For example, Hamilton spoke at Minnetrista Center May 2011, the topic? Civility in Civics. Sadly, many of our elected officials didn’t show to hear his presentation
Perhaps if the Democrats had gone to hear Mr. Hamilton speak, they may have refrained from acting the fools on election night. I am pretty sure nobody sang “Ding dong, Donati’s gone. Donati’s gone, Donati’s gone. Ding dong, Donati’s gone when he lost his commissioner’s seat last November, and he is a red-blooded, toe-the-line party Democrat foot soldier.
Yet, election night 2011, Democrats party loyalists sang with gusto “ding dong the witch is dead” they left messages on answering machines, they flocked like crazed maniacs to the public forums and posted over 200 comments in just a few hours.
Their candidate wins and this is how they celebrate? This topic is better left for another day, another time.
If you are interested more of Hamilton’s writings visit Center on Congress.
Did you know every two years we vote for one person to represent us in Congress? Uh huh. But, I’m not here to talk about Congress… I’m here to talk about irony, double standards, and just plain donkey dung. Read the rest of this entry »

The annual Property Tax Appeal Help Day on November 17, 2012 had an extraordinary turnout. With nearly 150 people in attendance and some with stories of increased assessment, we can’t call it a success until every property owner receives a fair assessment. Rest assured we are working diligently to get the ear of our legislatures to address this issue. It may be this year, or maybe not, it’s hard to say what the future holds.
As you all may know, Scott Alexander won the County Council At-Large seat. Scott has been attending county meetings for nearly seven years and brings to the table a wealth of information and practical experience. With that being said, welcome Scott!
District 2 Commissioner, Todd Donati, lost his re-election bid and his last day will be December 31, 2012. Prior to being commissioner he spent 12 years on county council. Unfortunately, most people ignored his performance on council and elected him in 2008. After four years of the most viral political games and outrageous spending, the people of Delaware County ousted him from office. I heard the day after the election, many of the county employees had a smile on their faces.
The Christmas Season is upon us and it looks like the downtown area will be decked out in lights. Muncie has come a long way since that cold winter night in 2009 when Council President, Sam Marshall, announced he was cutting the streetlight budget in half. Yes, 50% of the lights were scheduled to be shut off. No Christmas lights for us , bah humbug. And just about no streetlights in 2010 either. Yet, despite the not so bright future, Muncie was able to leave to the new administration $7,596,218.00 to take into 2012. Nobody got a bonus and only one person in the Tyler administration got a raise, but there were new copiers purchased and some other sundry things along the way. So, now Muncie is flush with money and the budget has been increased by $2 million. So much for Nora Powell, finance chairperson, getting the department heads to consider fiscal prudence. Hey, if you got it, might as well spend it.
