Comments: The bear is awake and roaming around JPG. Indiana DNR encourages residents to report bear sightings to dfw@dnr.IN.gov or by calling (812) 334-1137 during normal business hours.

Comments: I was poking around the courthouse the other day and came across this recent document: Court Cause number 39D01-1510-F5-00971. Another one missed by our local good for nothing media..
It seems that if you are special or maybe the son of an MPD official you are entitled to preferential treatment by the courts here in Madison.
A victim was battered causing serious bodily injury and confined by the son of a Madison police officer. Indiana State Police (ISP) was called to investigate the case because it involved a local police agency and the need for MPD to show no favoritism for one of their own.
Funny stuff happens here in Madison; if you happen to be part of the “in crowd” you can receive special privileges .
ISP filed Level 5 Felony charges of Criminal Confinement and Battery with serious bodily injury plus Battery with bodily injury an A Misdemeanor .
His local attorney and a special prosecutor from switzerland County worked out a sweet plea deal of ONLY a charge of a Class B Misdemeanor Battery(slap on the hand)which he wasn’t even charged with and no jail time.
So, moral of the story: if you are a police officer's son here in Madison you get special privileges us other poor slobs are not entitled to.. Anyone else would have received the FELONY charges, been held responsible for their actions and jail time..
We do appreciate all the hard work of the ISP (BTW for nothing) and I can’t imagine how the victim feels in this case.

Comments: If Koehler runs against Eblin. It will be another big loss to local Dems. All Eblin has to do is say" I have worked hard for you. The Auditor job is a very detailed and time consuming job. I will show up everyday and give 100 percent." Leigh Koehler is only interested in a paycheck. She will never be in the Auditors office. Her allegiance belongs to her horses. The county will never elect her again. Jefferson County does not like users!

Comments: Watching the school board is like watching the Wizard Of Oz over and over - Imel doesn't have a heart, Glesing of course has no brain , Lacour has no courage. The always wishing for something magical to fix things heroine is played by Jeanne Dugle. Kring is the fake wizard always saying he'll do something but then lacking the ability to deliver. His favorite line is "pay no attention to man behind the curtain." Attorney Pattison plays a great devoted lap dog that tucks tail as soon as he barks too much and someone sets him straight. And then of course there's the wicked witch. Ginger does a great job threatening to destroy everyone while sending out her flying monkeys Frazier, Henseler and Schutte to rain down havoc.

Comments: The letter below is the letter that I referenced in my post of March 21. Read it carefully. It says tons. Hopefully, the message will take root in the minds and hearts of the school board members. Thanks for re-posting.

Submitted by Name: Website and sewer
Comments: See the paper reported on the sewer increase already covered on the forum and Facebook days ago.
About the county website. My guess is there'll be no website or it'll be another half azz effort while he commissioners complain they don't have the money. The truth is the money's there but they waste it on jobs for buddies and bad decisions that keep costing money over time. Remember how the jail was built and was going to last. They don't have a clue. It's like the mayor applying for a stellar grants and turning around and throwing 2 million away to maintain Main St. every single year instead of letting the state continue to pay for all that.
