Election 2014 results - state and federal candidates

I couldn't agree more, Kate. There should absolutely be a way to meet in the middle and work it all out. That's the biggest problem though, is that none of them can get past their egos about who's right, or wrong and just work together.

I pay plenty of attention, Dorothy. And realistically, it's your way of thinking that keeps this divide in place. I'm not out here placing blame on the Republicans, or Democrats. The fault lies with both parties for the way things are. So, when people like you come out blaming the Republicans, or vise verse, it isn't any better than the politicians doing the same thing....always blaming the other party and then nothing gets accomplished, absolutely nothing. Don't you think that for once if our country actually came together, as one, then we might accomplish great things, as a nation united??? Well, until you stop with the blame game....guess what? It's not going to happen. So, if that's the country you want, please keep blaming one group instead of everyone.

No, that is not a secret. But to say that all she mentioned will happen because "Republicans have the votes..." is just plain ridiculous and completely speculative. The ACA did not help the majority of the people and to fine/tax a person for not having it (not being able to afford it) is just plain wrong. That's just one problem with the "ACA".
Seriously.

So where is all your inside information coming from? This is just another form of speculation, which gets you nowhere. Until the facts come out, please stop trying to instill fear into people....seriously.

Election 2014 results - ballot issues

Why are we only seeing just over 11,000 voting results so far for the Police Station? Seems like all other voting tallies are coming in with far more results being posted.

A closer look: Former D.A. questions request for $28M police facility when crime-clearing rates are so 'poor'

Not to mention, if the current facilities are so bad due to years of neglect by the city, then who's to say the "new" facility won't be neglected once again by the city over the coming years???

Opening date in sight for Ladybird Diner; Turnhalle meeting set; police headquarters, mini golf, paintball, teen center and more

Thanks Brett, I totally agree there are better uses for that space. I just wish the City Commissioners would realize that as well.

Not to mention that if they did build it at VenturePark, or at one of the other proposed sites - over by the O'Connell Youth Ranch - they would be approximately one mile from the Douglas County Jail....seems to make more sense to me to be so close.
