Here are the current results of the poll for city commission:
The names have changed, but the results are the same as the poll we took 6 months ago:
The challengers are still way ahead.
Can you make any sense of this?
He almost sounds altruistic. Is that even possible?
Did you get your 6 page pamphlet on why you should vote yes on issue #3?
I had to examine the 6 pages to find out what the issue was even about. Throughout the entire advertisement the words "casino" and "gambling" were mentioned only once.
What does that tell ya?
On the other hand, the favorable buzz words and phrases ("new jobs," "tax dollars for your school system") were mentioned numerous times and the president of the AFL-CIO urged me to vote yes on issue 3 no matter how I felt about gambling.
Look at this:
Joe Rugola says: "No matter how you feel about gambling it's time to do something."
Okay, I'll vote no then.
Woulda been better if Printy made a cameo appearance as "Biff:"
Greenway saga part 45:
As an Erie County resident I sure do appreciate the fact that EMP is trying to settle a lawsuit for the least amount of money possible...but I'd be even more appreciative if they'd stay out of litigious situations like they did with the Greenway. Some readers may not remember the chainsaws to the decks, the armed rangers standing watch as the workers cut them down, the tractor theft by former EMP director Jonathan Granville, (To Mick Coles: "We just wanted to get your attention") and the OSU alumni band marching up and down the trail with their drums pounding and brass a'blazin' to provoke and agitate the homeowners who were protesting the EMP's land grab. Yes, the civic minded and respectful leaders of the Erie Metroparks thought that a marching band was an appropriate way to celebrate the "grand opening" of the Greenway.
Of course all of this happened back when the Sandusky Register was sleepy-headed and didn't want to ruffle feathers in the establishment...
