Abe Vigota is ALIVE. If you are wondering if he was Alive of Dead I placed a link on the left side for your daily check.
The Brandts were in Canada and had set their timer to take a photo of themselves on vacation when this happened.
Did you know that some promoter offered Pink Floyd $250 million to go on tour? They said no. I guess they didn't need the money.
OK - I was putting this off but COME ON NOW Columbus City Council - get some balls!
I can not believe they STILL can not make a decision about wheather to fix or demo Udey Dam and now are going to waste $4,000 in Columbus money for a non-binding vote. Now wait a minute here.
I thought that the reason we have a City Council is so they can make informed decisions. We vote for an individual because we believe he or she will make the wise decision. It's their job, right? It's why they ran for office, right? Isn't that the function of a City Council?
The City Council functions as a parliamentary or congressional style legislative body, proposing bills, holding votes, passing laws, AND MAKING DECISIONS to help govern the city.
So here we have the whole Udey Dam business AGAIN. My God people. Mayor Bob Link in his campaign pounded his fist on the table and said "DO THE RIGHT THING". Well - there ya go, here is your chance. DO ANYTHING!
The City Council has all the facts or has access to get all the facts they need to make an informed decision. YET - now they want to spend $4,000 to ask the Columbus residents what to do. AND to make it worse - it's non-binding meaning we vote but it really is a opinion poll so when the vote turns out to be pretty much 50/50 we're back to square one with $4000 less.
They want to have the people that are basically voting with emotions make the wise choice instead of the people, (who we voted for to MAKE decisions) with the facts at their finger tips. It seems they are wringing their hands afraid to make the wrong choice instead of taking this opportunity to make the right choice. They are afraid to succeed.
Asking Columbus Residents for their opinion is a cop out and is more like making sure you get votes for next year! You already have the votes - and the results were YOU make the decisions, that is why you were put in office. You are not going to please everybody on this one.
BTW - I think you should blow up the dam (preferably from an F-14 of F16 but any military aircraft would do). You can't eat the fish behind it unless you love eating all the chemicals that have built up over the last 100 years. Make it a navigational river, FREE THE RIVER! Repairing will only bring up future problems. Get rid of this problem NOW. The dam does nothing.
If Columbus is trying to be environmentally correct, destruction of the dam is the right thing to do.
I received an email from Connecticut yesterday. A woman has a huge photo of the Kurth baseball team from around 1900. Her husband's grandfather, August Carl Scheel, is from Columbus and played on the team. She is looking for ANY information on this. I can not find the number of the Columbus Historical Society anywhere. She has tried to contact John and Laurette with no luck.
I can't make it to the Kurth for a while (unless we get thunderstorms Wednesday night).
So any help would be nice.

But the sad news is that I have another beer infection. 3 of last 4 are FUBR. I know what the problem is but because of the lag time there was nothing I could do. sucks! The 1Putt12 APA is a foamer and tastes skanky.
Some equipment was designed poorly and has been replaced. Plus I guess the "sanitize" button on the dishwasher is not really accurate.
