WDT: Federal Funds Sought for War on Bed Bugs, and Other Developments in the 13601

    Our two US Senators will get a chance to respond to a request for federal funds to battle bed bugs. Downtown resident Patricia Whalen discovered there was a Bed Bug Act of 2009 passed in DC that was supposed to allocate money for the battle against the pests.
     Ms Whalen is collecting signatures on a petition.  Bed bugs have flared as a major issue with the city allocating $12,500 for the fight.
Horizon Media Catches Shot of Wiley Students Having Fun

     In other news around town, I read that Roth Industries over near the jail is doing a $6M expansion. Roth is one of those quiet industries that has been a stabe force in the local economy.
     The damage at Lachenauer Plaza remains untouched at least six months after a motorist plowed into the traffic island/park and ripped the fountain from it's moorings.  Nothing has been done and it's a shame he city would just leave something like that with orange police tape on it. Whether the fountain returns, it's poor stewardship of property that sends a very negative vibe about the city's own committment to downtown.

What has happened to America.

Why do people constantly need the government to solve their problems. Why can't they solve their problems on their own?

That's a sh*t ton of students and faculty in the Wiley pic. Wonder what the ratio is???

Because that's all part of the Liberal indoctrination that the schools have been shoving down out throats for the last 30+ years.

The more they can get you onto the "government teat" the more they can control your lives.

Baaaaa

Enough 8:35.
As for the fountain, it just shows you the leadership and commitment of the council and CM currently in their posts.
NOTHING other than what they want is important, and the stories behind their logic is always fun to read and listen to. Just like a little kids book.. funnier and funnier to read each time.
