A Leash is a String, a Rope, a Steel Cable, a.......???
I just spent an interesting evening at the first of ??? public hearings on the proposed Floyd County Animal Control Ordinance. If nothing else I came away with a newfound appreciation for what the writers of our Constitution went thru to reach the point of a final draft. And they walked in the room hating each others guts! Neither did they have email to exchange between themselves. If they were still around, I'd remortgage my home to buy them all the progressive pints they could drink.
We walked into the room with a 57 page document. Mr. Lohmeyer offered that in the interest of time, we should skip the first 11 pages because they contained only definitions of terms used throughout the text. Silly boy! Only Rabbits eat tricks!
We devoured the first hour on pages 12 thru 15, much of which was spent going back to pages 1 thru 11 to define terms. Well, it sounded like a good idea going in!
The next hour considered pages 16 thru twenty something (again that definition of terms thing).
During the last 45 minutes, the general consensus was to treat "livestock" (farm animals) as a seperate issue at a later time.
I'm really not making fun of anyone here. It was just an interesting exercise in watching a room full of people trying to agree on what is really is!
At any rate we made a lot of progress and some very good points that had not been previously brought to the table were shared. The next session is next Wednesday @ 6PM at the same location. Bring a seat cushion as the metal folding chairs are rough on a million mile backside!
I offered to Mark Seabrook that if he thought the NA Sewer issue was tough, he ain't seen nothin' yet!
I missed nearly all of the NA Common Council meeting but a little mouse told me that Larry Kochert is the new council president. I also heard that CM Price & company had a successsful evening in that no monies were awarded to the petitioners present. Whatch those pennies Stevey boy!
2007 is off & running. By the way Roger, did you say something about some lubricant for that squeaky wheel??
