“To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism.”

It's a romantic idea. One that perks the mind to think, dream and even believe it's possible. The numbers don't say it's possible anymore. The past performances and financials say it's not possible anymore. The past owners and operators say it's not possible anymore. If Cincinnati gave the barge to Madison free and clear it would still be a huge burden and constantly run in the red.

It's nice to dream and brainstorm. But pipe dreams should come out of your own pocket. I'm tapped out.

I've read the proposal for the Showboat and find it interesting that they state that time is of the essence, yet the boat has sit idle for more than a year.

I don't believe additional non-profits need to be created. We have enough already. If the community decides to pursue this venture, then I suggest the management and funding come from the Port Authority/Madison Railroad.

One has to question the market for this venture. I just don't know many people that go to more than a couple of plays a year.

The days of one person, one vote are long gone and common sense has been replaced with who will tell me what I want to hear while doing nothing they say -- "hurry up and dig up granny, so she can vote for me too."

NO to the show barge. Do the persons interested in this adventure even have one idea as to the upkeep alone? This is a nice dream for some, but a loser to the tax payers.

Do these people have any personal credit? They could put their homes up for **collateral** to purchase the barge on their own and surely save taxpayers of the extra burden.

Also, kudos to Mike Hensley for his radio adds. He's doing what has to be done in a professional manner. The very nature of any electee to put her own child on a pedestal above the law, the same laws that our children have to be accountable for, is a slap in the face to every parent in Jefferson County. Judge Frazier advertises to be impartial , another slap in the face to every one in Jefferson County. Every time I see someone sentenced for "possession of marijuana" in her court, it reminds me of her perverted sense of "impartial"

By our Judge Frazier "knowing the right people", she and her son and friends got away with a crime you and I couldn't pull off. Nice person or not, Judge Frazier violated all other citizens rights of Jefferson County .......... SHE HAS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The clerks race. It's most important to reelect the incumbent. Elect the Democrat and I"m not so sure things will be on the up and up.
Elect the Democrat and Barb McKinney will be his puppet master.

This upcoming local election is too important to sit out.

We have an insane school board that needs to go.

A county commissioner that desperately needs replacing.

County attorney needs to go.. Only goes away if commissioner replaced.

New county council needs to be seated to protect us from MIDCOR, and Mayor Welch.

Looks like Wallace, Mike Hensley and Eblen are going to be shoe-in. Others need to work harder.

Julie Berry is like wilbur the rat --- look you in the eye and lie to you; she need to be put out to pasture.

I see Julie Berry is up to her old tricks again. Can't win an election fair and square. Now we are pulling out all the stops.

Admin reply: Beware of absentee ballots!!!! I didn't say that...

It is indeed refreshing to see the council conduct their business in a responsible manner. Their reaction to Mr. Stark and his request was handled exactly as it should have been. Nobody got all google eyed and excited about a new business proposal and they came to the logical conclusion. The ordinance providing oversight concerning matching funds was also a responsible decision. Thank you council persons for representing us well.

This is a snip it from the newspaper - ( link is above !). ((( Every show fills 179 of the Showboat's 221 seats. AND WE STILL HAVE NOT MADE ANY MONEY here for the last 8 or 9 YEARS." Potential profits are consumed by year-round expenses for a boat that is in use as a floating playhouse only from May through September. ))))
In summary what does this mean? So, if they can seat 179 of the 221 seats on every show in Cinci and lose money what will happen when it comes to Madison with a lower seat count ??? Lets see, yep we have a BINGO. It will not only LOSE MONEY but will COST US TAXPAYERS. We do not need another old rusty barge, let alone another dilapidated eyesore downtown, we do not need this ramrodded by some uninformed people trying to make a name for themself, and we sure as HE!! do not need another money pit that loses TAXPAYER money. VOTE NO CITY COUNCIL, VOTE NO, VOTE NO.
