The Coffee Shop / Re: WEST ELK VOTERS SAY A FIRM "NO" ON TUESDAY

I bet if it was a vote AARP and a shaw it would have passed. The ambition of this area is as fruitful as the new construction and storefronts in 282

I'm not sure what that meant, but I can assure you that I would have nothing to do with anything AARP were promoting.  As for the new construction and storefronts in town, I'm not payin for them either.

Just about as much as open attacks on the personal integrity and character of the majority who voted no on this issue.

Not bitter just fed up with the head first swan dive 282 just took due to the inferior genetics of the baby boomers or the clan of cave bear whatever you call yourselves these days.;D

If you don't like this genetic pool or bear cave, it's still a free country.... Move to a pool in which you are more comfortable.

So now it's just the voters today who are the ignorants who created your dilemma?  How about the management (or lack thereof) that failed to see these problems years ago?  And what of the lack of economic development in Elk County in the last 10 or 15 years that might have led to an economy that could draw and keep people here?  I have to wonder, how many HS graduates in the last 10 years from this school district hare still in Elk County vs how many have left to find the very thing their education was to prepare them for:  jobs and careers?  I reject the notion that 622 people voted against this measure out of pure ignorance.  While it's obvious you have suffered a personal defeat from this vote, labeling those who voted their conscience as ignorant, lacking in ambition, lacking in common sense or as being lazy is a bit of a stretch, imho.   Moreover, I resent the inference that they can now just 'hang out at Penny's Pub, buy beer and smokes at PJ's', etc.  Maybe, just maybe some, if not many, of those who voted against this bond issue have circumstances about which you have no facts or knowledge.  But, I could be wrong.  Sorry you felt slighted by the outcome of the democratic process today.

Well, then have them sign a waiver or something.  I don't think that the folks in Elk county (and again I could be way off here) are that "sue happy" that if they were volunteering to something like this, and got hurt, that they would sue the school or whatever.

And then have the final product reviewed/certified by a bonded contractor prior to occupancy.

Just out of curiosity why do yall find it so hard to swallow that a person doesn't HAVE to be either/ or? That some people are capable of thoughts and beliefs on ALL sides based on the MERIT of the idea instead of what party it most closely resembles? Just GOT to label it and put it in a neat little box, tape it shut, and bury it ESPECIALLY if it don't agree with you.

Yeah AL Gore exaggerates and he is makin money off it.......Dick Cheney is a consumate crook.......Obama made promises he hasn't kept......George Bush exaggerated to get his war.......Clinton got caught with his cigar in the cookie jar......and so on and so forth and blah blah blah.

The fact of the matters are......POLLUTION IS killin the planet..yours...mine.....any and EVERYbodies.
Obama has some good ideas
I hate Bush but I will admit some things he did made sense
Clinton was a horndog, he did things I agreed with also.
Dick Cheney is just a *&^%, he has no redeeming value I can come up with but there is one in every crowd.
People (read that politicians), I guess MOST people, USE facts to run their own personal agendas.....the fact they may tweak those facts does not change the base fact.

Just the fact that the people on this forum can't talk about issues without ridiculing or attacking, labeling, actin like twelve year olds on the school yard exhibits what is wrong with this country at it's base. Y'all don't like ANYbody who doesn't belong to YOUR "herd"...they MUST BE STOPPED!!!!!!

Guess what....I ain't interested in what you are gonna tell me is wrong with my thoughts on this.....I ain't part of your herd....

While you made some good points here, the final question might be... why would you continue to hang with a herd in which you claim no part?

"Goodby, and Good Riddance."?  Well, one can hope I suppose.

Did you ever notice when liberals get frustrated they start tossing out invectives like candy?  I suppose the left has some 'rules' that preclude such innovative solutions as 'self help' to fix the roof.  And just think, they call the right the party of 'No'.   ;D

I don't have much money to throw in but I can swing a hammer and would volunteer to work.  Anybody out there know how to fix a freakin roof?  Maybe put up some insulation or whatever else needs to be done? 

My point is I think that there are alot of resources in the county that have not been checked into as a means of saving on repair costs. 

Outstanding perspective!  Self reliance (both on the personal and community levels) need to make a comeback.  If I'm not mistaken, that's how the park behind Twilight Manor in Howard got done.  And a find product it appears to be!
