Mistake, funeral, and a couple houses

 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.

    I live two blocks away and I’ve always suspected that there was a pharmacy in the area. We need the residents to help clean up the city besides the city officials.

    I’m waiting to see how much we saved on workman’s comp since going to those wonderful containers. The tenants across the alley can not figure out how they work. The city has tagged them several times and nothing has been done. They still leave a bag or two out to feed the local animals or use my container.

    I don’t know if it would help but I would attest to the fact I have seen you and Jim Fisher standing next to each other. Hes also got more grey hair than you do Cruser.

    nitrous55,
    As citizens we can help, but few do. The new garbage set-up should have the bugs worked out by now, but I’ve seen problems like you talk about in our ward. It sure hasn’t done much for the ltter problem.

    Ilcantar,
    Mr. Fisher has more hair, mine’s just longer.

    Be sure to check out the latest thread posted on Alderman Meyer`s Blog. I love his sense of humor, and that post will keep me chuckling all afternoon.

    Also, has there been any response from Malin about the memo from Alan Guard about the sale of bond interest?

    We’ll have to check that out. We haven’t heard anything about the interest yet.

    It was yesterday, and she had a nice sendoff. I was waiting for her to get out of the casket and start cleaning. There were quite a few former tennants and nieghbors who showed up to support Jackie and the grandchildren. We couldn’t stay for the service, but we hung around awhile. I’m glad she’s finally at peace.

    It is obvious that City Staff doesn`t want to answer questions from Alderman Meyer. When Keith asks something from Alan Guard, the answer should go directly back to Keith, not first be submitted to Malin for his usual spin on things.

    Alderman Meyer wanted to post this-

    Nope – I was waiting to package it up with the answer to Shawn’s question on back up dispatch costs and a draft of the 28E agreement on conolidated dispatch.

    Should have it all together Monday or Tuesday at the latest.
