There's so much to talk about.

Do we start with the Jail situation? The one where the county fathers decided that we can't give the schools any money this year because we have to build a Taj MaJail for our criminals?

Or do we start with the financial straights we are left with in this County? The reserve fund got spent in the last administration and it doesn't look like the new folks have a good handle on where the money comes from or goes to.

Our schools deserve a hard look. We actually produce a fair number of scholars for the sad shape our facilities are in, but why do they keep the bathrooms in the highschool locked so the kids can't get in them? Is that weird or what?

Drive around the county and you see some really beautiful sights as long as you don't pay too much attention to the roads you're driving on.

Then there's the Houstons. I had always figured that Rocky and Leon should get off on the most serious charges. That was the word on the street, anyway. Now we see the Judge coming around to the same point of view.

So what's it going to be?

you folks get your chance to start the first thread but be thoughtful and be nice.

If nothing happens I'll throw out the first thread but you get your chance...Go for it!
