Now the fun starts.

Well boys and girls, there was a hearing yesterday for our local princess that screwed all of us in the township out of much needed dollars.  Turned out she didn’t cop a plea and frankly, I hope she won’t.  If she’s guilty, let a jury decide, if she’s found innocent, you better hope and prey […]

Well Cartoon County property owners, you got your statements. Are you happy?

I hope all of you that voted for last falls referendum to increase your property taxes were enthralled on Saturday when you got your property tax statement.  I really do.  Mine only went up about $230.00 while the value of my property decreased nearly ten grand.  Of course, if you rent, you think your cutting […]

I’ll eat some crow.

Folks, I was awful critical of our local dirtbags being only charged with 2nd degree homicide, questioning why it wasn’t first.  Well, one with more knowledge than I informed me via comment to my post that 1st degree could only be charged by a grand jury.  The readers point was highlighted in the most recent […]
