  1. Maybe I'm missing something here, but something stinks with the timing of this. I certainly hope that this is about the truth and not about a vendetta.

  2. Good grief how long does it take to get some result's around here? Transparency or has the City gone underground until they think we have acquired amnesia. I haven't! I see my utility bill each month.
    I sing: "up... up... in the air... is my beautiful... my beautiful ballooooon" It's not attractive.
    I am anxiously anticipating my property taxes to go up when this assessor comes by for tea and biscuit's. Don't tell him but my cooking is as bad as my operatic talent's.
    I have recently spent weeks looking at KCOW archive material back to 2004. Weird part is that history tends to repeat itself and it explains why Alliance tends to function on "out of sight out of mind"
    Ugh! I have been as patient as possible!
    Helloooo? Helloooo!!!!
    Jeff's blog has been lonely too long. Thanksgiving is over so let's fit this in before Christmas.
    Does the city have recess like congress, shouldn't they be back in session by now?
