Twas two weeks before Christmas
A Column by the Editor

COLUMN – T’was two weeks before Christmas
and all through house, not a creature was stirring, except Mickey the
Mouse. County issues were hung on the taxpayers backs, while Monroe was
hoping not to catch any flack.
The Calliham property has now been put to bed, while visions of change
orders and costs overruns swirl through Ken and Bettis’ heads. They
both had a smile as they laid their heads in their laps, while laughing
at Monroe, Willie and Norman for being such saps.
Though the truth came out and caused quite a clatter, Ken and Bettis
said, “don’t worry, it don’t’ matter. Just spend the
money, you can hide the whole truth. We’ll have lunch at the Grill,
we’ll save you a booth.”
The costs are so high, as the numbers did show. But the master so said,
“Who cares, nobody knows. Don’t worry you saps, don’t have any fear.
The dumb voters will forget by the elections next year.”

costs and debt that might cause a big rift.
“Don’t worry my friends,” Hog said with a smile. “We’ve done it before
we can do it again. The people are used to this kind of bile.”
“So dash away dash away, one and all. Just do as you’re told, I will
protect you next fall.” The subjects all gathered in a tight little
group, “Can we do this, is it possible, are the people are such dupes?”
“Yes it is possible,” Hog said with firm scorn. “The voters
continue to elect you and lightbulb Norman Dorn”. “He’s right,” they
said as they
gathered together. “We can sock them with debt and blame it on others
So as Christmas approaches and gift giving is near. You should hide
your wallet, because the machine is in overdrive gear. The truth is
forbidden, as are all of the ties. And you will be paying for all of
