    They did med response too.

    Was talking with my councilman this morning about it and we laughed about how it used to be if you called 911 with a hangnail 12 of them would descend on your house.

    They were a proud and enthusiastic bunch for sure.

    Certified funds hasn't been on this website since July. He probably died in a house fire while waiting on the volunteer fire department.

    Well, at least in his final minutes, he could rejoice in saving $500 in property tax.

    He's alive and well, but got hit with the hammer.

    I can't imagine why. His anti-tax, anti-government, anti-social security "Give me pure capitalism or give me death" rhetoric wasn't anymore inflammatory than a lot of other member's around here. :dunno:

    Fixed that. It is economically impossible to prosper because of a union. The best the union could contribute is if it does nothing for its members. The sole purpose of a union is to drive labor costs above the market rate for non-union labor. You may as well claim your car runs better with water in the gas.
