WOW!!!! I can't believe the county pay scales. It is outragous!!! If you look at the 'Budget Analyst' and 'Public Works Maintenance Field Supervisor' they almost doubled their salary from 2007 to 2009. I agree no to new taxes.

Tarantula is right on.
You can't throw more money at education if the parent's don't play an active role. My parents immigrated to this country without knowing a word of English. We were a working poor family growing up. My parents made sure we did our homework and always participated in Parents/Teachers conference. I would like to see 10% of our schools to be considered as advanced schools where the student will need to take an exam to enter. Make another 10% technically oriented schools. This will separate the performers and the laggers who don't seem to care.

I agree with 'appleslices'. This new program will not beneift me and its time to shop arounfd instead. Not saying I won't fly with them anymore but it sure opens the door for other airlines.

I love this article. I moved from Rochester three years ago. Property taxes in Rochester are three times higher than Las Vegas. NY state has a 7% income tax, Nevada doesn't. I bought my house here in Las vegas 18 months ago and taxes have decrease.

I don't want to shovel anymore snow, scrap ice off the windshield, salt covered boots, clothes and cars. Black snow for five months out of the year. Rain for the other seven months. No thanks... (My brother said they received another 8 inches of snow and its 14 degrees.)

I guess this bartender gives out 'shots' more ways than one. I don't think this place will get rob again unless another stupid robber doesn't read this story.
