Larrybill, if everyone you hang out with gets an EITC and brags, maybe you should hang out with different people.

Farmer wants to highlight need for more jobs, technical education as part of City Commission campaign

Local issues have the most personal impact on an individual. The issues at each level of government are different impact. It is the reason why almost all local elections are not party affiliated. Who Mr. Farmer voted for is the least important question to ask and one I hope he will not answer. More individuals should educate themselves on how local government impacts their lives and vote accordingly. If that is actually done, I suspect that you, Ultimate Grownup (though not a Grownup who understands government) will find that you have rarely voted party specific.

Juvenile prison’s OT costs questioned

I would imagine that working with juvenile offenders is a lot like really stressful parenting. You don't just get to leave because of the time on the clock. You leave when the situation is resolved to a bare point of "we'll talk about this more later". If many of societies working models were based on the measure of success rather than the quantity of time spent (as with the problematice "fee for service" medical industry) we would spend less time getting better results because that's how a salary was earned.

Sound Off: Where can we find the 2012 or 2013 agency budget breakdowns for Bert Nash and LMH? I can’

Annual reports are easy. Those generally include a budget overview but not the detailed budget.

Where do you find LMH's budget or Bert Nash's entire budget with all monies, not just what the City contributes?
