Honest Obama could cost Dems U.S. Senate seats

Cary HinesObama may say his feelings aren’t hurt when his fellow Democrats running for office avoid him like Ebola, but I have a hard time believing that when he makes comments such as, “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress. So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them — I said, ‘You do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.’”

Ebola and other infectious diseases

Fear of Ebola is a faster growing disease than Ebola itself. Airline stocks fell as a result of an infected nurse from Dallas flying across country possibly infecting hundreds on each of her flights.

I will not threaten to kill I will not threaten to kill

Looks like them Buckeye boys in blue are in a heap of trouble.

And thanks to Officer I Will Kill You, there’s a good chance the whole lot of ’em will be punished with body cameras.

Fry’s says Litchfield ready for more retail

Since the beginning of the year, landowners in Litchfield Park have been telling city residents and city staff that current regulations and zoning prevented them from being successful, growing their businesses and developing their land.

New radar gun has knack for stating obvious

A Virginia company is working on a new product that must be designed for cops who are completely oblivious to their surroundings.

Cops who sit on the side of the road, never once looking up from all of their fancy equipment.

Cops with zero observation skills.

Only in a city council election …

Legislators everywhere could learn a thing or two from the little West Valley city of Avondale.

When neither incumbent Charlie Vierhout nor newcomer Lorenzo Sierra received enough votes to win an Avondale City Council seat in the primary election and knew they’d be moving on to a runoff election, Vierhout said, “Lorenzo is a great candidate. If he wins, it won’t be a disservice to the city. He’d be a fine City Council member, so I think the residents have two good choices.”
