Comments: Donna/Dennis, I mispoke and I apologize. There have been 14 suicides in Jefferson County so far this year not this month. I admit my mistake on the time frame. However, that is still an average of almost 5 a month.

Comments: Dear biker, I have ridden up and down Hatcher Hill on a bicycle for over twenty years. Certainly not impossible and I am certainly not the only one who bikes the hill. Work harder and cease with the whining. Probably a baby boomer.

Submitted by Name: Suicide Problem
Comments: I have been told that 14 suicides have occurred in Jefferson County this month. 14..yet at least our city government is more concerned about a biking/hiking trail and that will change the "quality of life"
Well..get your head out of your combined rear-ends and realize there is no quality of life if we have citizens committing suicide and it is time to focus on our real d*mn problems!

Comments: Damon has never gotten over not being unanimously crowned supreme ruler of Jefferson County with his/GO8 JC-Invest. When that went up in flames, as it should have, the GO8 through their hissy fit and gave us Envision. Why? So they could do exactly the same thing WITHOUT any county input. We are seeing that now.
Welch knows and has known the county has legal control of Hatcher Hill but he doesn't care. He will do what he wants as he has with the 750K to Super ATV, the abatements to Trilogy who will also it sounds get 500K from the city to finish remodeling their building for a faux Senior Center and thousands and thousands of dollars a year in fees.
Anyone that doesn't believe that Cooke, Andrew and Jenner aren't the ones that wrote the faux county resolution and gave it to Little are living in LaLa land. Interesting that Cooke was at the Commissioners asking them for cooperation on Wilson Avenue just before Little did the faux resolution. Coincidence? I think not.
So when does Welch finally talk to the County Commissioners or is that too beneath the Supreme Ruler and he'll send Cooke and Andrew? I'm sure we'll find out soon.

Comments: Saw the Chappo fiasco and couldn't help but laugh that Cash all but crawled under the table to keep from saying any thing. Normally the man tried to run the show but not yesterday. His big move was to second Littles motion to adjourn. So if you could find out Cashs stand on the gun range I think the rest of us would like to know.
Also- MIA was candidate Richard Ice who seems to have an opinion on everything except what matters. Wonder what the Iceman thinks of gun range, property owner rights and neighborhood disputes. Perhaps he could make an appearance at a commissioners meeting and teach the rest of us how to "work together" or maybe he can keep posting on Facebook and working at Lowes. Of course no one even knows who Bramen is so maybe Cash has a ghost candidate and Richard wins because everybody likes Bonnie better than Jeannine.

Submitted by Name: Hard 2 believe
Comments: Despite the city's promises to Bobby Lityle to immediately begin collaborating with the county of Little provided a faux resolution it seems Little is a little outta luck. So far the city has reached out to touch the county unless it's to give them he cold shoulder or make Little the but+ of some awfully funny jokes. Day 1 to collaborate - wasted.

Comments: Who wants to bike down that steep hill? Hardly safe at all and certainly not for children. Plus, the obvious problem, easy to go down, impossible to come back up. Ludicrous from top to bottom - literally !

Comments: Well it seems even though the mayor, Andrew City of Madison or the ABC group has EVER approached the County about the use of Hatcher Hill which the county controls. they don't seem to care.
