Riverwalk Project RUINED

The map below is the latest "version" of the Riverwalk project.  Created 
by the outstanding "vision" of the mayor and the engineers.  There is a 
Riverwalk committee but they were never consulted for input.  Nice mess!

2010 Wine Festival and Farmers Market

Was held at Boldt Castle this past Saturday.  I recently bought a new Flip pocket  HD video camcorder and thought I would test it out.  I produced the following video using only the software that came with it.  Enjoy.....make sure your sound is on!

Errors in Proposed Sign Ordinance

Yesterday, I was advised by a village official that the proposed sign ordinance that was sent to me [and others]  is missing some key items.  This is not the ordinance that the committee worked so hard  to generate.  Hopefully I will be receiving an updated accurate ordinance in the near future.

Mayor Back Pedals

(bkpdl)  To retreat or withdraw from a position or attitude: The mayor later backpedaled on the issue.

This is a short audio from the August 24th meeting when the topic of the block dances first came up.... followed by .... the Sept 24th meeting when the topic surfaced again.  Listen closely for the change in how the fiddle plays....

A Solution to Beer at the Block Dances?

Not sure what that solution will be.  Ron Thomson spoke cryptically last night regarding a meeting  he had with 2 village board members, and the COP.  Some of the VB members seem to have changed their  hard line positions that were originally expressed at the Aug. 24th meeting when the board declared war on drinking at the music events.  Click here for the audio from the Aug. 24th meeting.

I will be posting public and merchant comments from last nights meeting over the next few days...

Trustees Challenge Mayor

I have been going to village board meetings for several years.  Every meeting, it is the same thing.....no opposition, no questions, and no dissent from the trustees.  The board has been playing follow the leader for years.  The game that the mayor has played is coming to a close.  At the last VB meeting, it appeared to be business as usual.....for instance paying the bills.  Except the mayor was faced with opposition from "his" trustees.  Well there was a chirp and a peep from 2 of the trustees.  However,  Trustees Roy and Jury stopped the momentum of the meeting with some rather hard questions that the mayor really did not have a satisfactory answer.  Enjoy the show.....
