A nod to Jim Fisher for help clearing up the fact that we are not one and the same. It’s pretty easy to tell us apart really. He has a pot to pee in, and a window to throw it out of, We have the window. Someday we’ll put a downpayment on a pot.
That being said, the email accused me(Jim Fisher) of calling his relatives idiots for living in southern California. He also took offense to Mr. Fisher’s comments and assured me that he since he couldn’t push my button in person, he’d do it by email. I forwarded your email to Mr. Fisher and I’m sure he’ll comment on it. To see the email go here.
Vivian Robinsons’ visitation is going to be tomorrow from noon to 1 pm at Runge Mortuary. Services will follow in their chapel. She is missed by many, loved by all who met her, and a genuine nice lady. We’re going to show our respect, and I’ll even be in a suit.
Regardless of who did what concerning the house in the 300 block of Myrtle, it is a nuisence. I’m sure many agencies, groups, and concerned citizens have had a hand in getting it boarded up. There are more houses like this in our city, and something should be done to clean up all of them.
Yesterday we got a chance to listen to our police scanner a bit. Seems some young members of the Howard family were playing with a firearm in an alley by 14th. and Gaines. Then came the call, shots fired at 327 E. 14th. That one’s a little too close to home. We’re glad the Police caught the kid, and the gun, but again, the rental property involved is no stranger to police calls. So at least to us, candidates platforms on crime are going to weigh heavily on how we vote. We don’t expect the candidates to have all the answers, but at least to be informed and willing to try to manage the problem.
