Gambling is as close to legal theft you can get.
The house always wins. You are a fool if you go to the casinos.
Troll Detector, 11.24pm. Your nastiness not withstanding, you simply know nothing about the Brown Act.
It is obvious that you are one of the immature idiots in Heidi's group that is causing her to lose support fast.
Joel, it is Heidi that claims she has a great plan that will make the city a ton of money. Since she is the one that is making the claim in order to convince the council to spend $600,000 now (& potentially millions later), it is her responsibility to back up her claims.
I believe her refusal to make it available is because she knows it is not viable.
Nevertheless Joel, he has a very good idea. Let Heidi provide a link where we can take a look at her secret plans. What little she told us at the Herald was very poor & scary in its assumptions.
Common Sense was also correct when he said that Linda Atkins & the others who accused the other council members of breaking the law were extremely offensive. There are no grounds at all for making the spurrious charge. All the other council members did was disagree with Linda, Heidi and her little group.
No JJ, the fact that Newman and Madsen may have talked with C/R is NOT a Brown Act violation. Jeff Marsee himself could talk with all five council members as long as he did it one at a time or at least no more than two at a time.
Individual council members can talk to who they wish as long as THREE board members do not talk among themselves about a specific policy decision.
Where was Cotten's family before he got himself killed? They let this dangerous guy alone on the streets. Now they want to take advantage of his death to get rich.
In the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, the HAF is going to "shift its focus away from economic & community development"?
To what? Perhaps Peter Pennekamp should spend more time in town & he would have a better idea of what this county desperately needs.
I would rather see Pennekamp "land on his feet somewhere" and promote Moxon to his job.
What a sad waste of a life.
