Stephanie, please take care of yourself since these little critters can be transmitted to others. Please don't use the Town Hall bathroom
Good luck to you Stephanie
Good luck to you too, Billy. Have another Xanax.
Imagine, if you can, this guy in elected office? Supposedly he and God-girl are running for the Inglis commission. I guess that would be insurance for their plan to dissolve the town. I hope they do run. Expect to see this more than once in the next two months.
Commissioner Poser Gets Helping Hand.
A local veteran’s assistance volunteer came forward this week with a “surprise” solution to the nagging question regarding Poser’s service in the U.S. Army during “the Vietnam era” ( his claim).
According to Poser Central the commissioner’s DD214 service record was given to the local Amvets club for safekeeping and was subsequently lost. Now he has been presented with a genuine DD214 Request Form which was left at Inglis Town Hall on Wednesday. Other volunteers are seeking donations to cover the postage for submittal of the request to the National Archives Center and to buy the poser a green beret in celebration of this landmark turn of events.
Word has it that Posers Anonymous has started a contest to create an organization theme song. Here’s the first verse entry. Just in today:

Local Slumlord Charges Family $800 A Month For Trailer Full Of Black Mold.
Inglis Real Estate Mogul Steals Inglis Water From Himself & The Town
Hundreds - - - due the city for illegal hook up ?? Since 2011 this slumlord has been diverting town water from a meter that serves one rental trailer and is within the city limits, to a second rental trailer next door that is in the county and is not eligible to connect to the city water system. The landlord also charges each tenant for the water bill. That's twice. He is stealing from the town and from the tenants.
This could be a matter of theft in the thousands. The meter charge at $27.50 per month comes to just under $1,500 since Slum Chum got a Quit Claim Deed in 2011 for both properties. The double billing of the actual water bill, to the tenants, could amount to three to five thousand dollars a year in graft. Thieves get charged everyday for stealing electricity. Is this any different? He’s fighting one felony charge right now. He needs another one. Unfortunately for her, the property is in his wife's name. He's set her up to take the fall. This guy is a real gem. I wouldn't buy a car from him.
Late breaking news: This morning Slumlord, called the town Supervisor of Public Works, Lance Trafford and told him if he shut off the water at the above property he would lose his job. Pretty cocky for someone who the Governor suspended from his seat on the Inglis Board of Commissioners.
Midlife crisis a part of our genetic make up?
From a recent issue of The Atlantic Magazine –
This is a long article. If you're over forty you should read.
It turns out that there is good science about this gift: studies show quite strongly that people’s satisfaction with their life increases, on average, from their early 50s on through their 60s and 70s and even beyond—for many until disability and final illness exact their toll toward the very end (at which point it’s hard to generalize). In a 2011 study, for example, the Stanford University psychologist Laura Carstensen and seven colleagues found that “the peak of emotional life may not occur until well into the seventh decade”—a finding that is “often met with disbelief in both the general population and the research community,” despite its strength. Carstensen described to me this pattern in her own life. “Forties were, for me, the worst,” she said. “You’re never good enough professionally. I think you’re coming out of the fog in the 50s.” Now, at 60, she said, “I feel so privileged. I feel it now.” Elaine Wethington, a professor of human development and sociology at Cornell, whose research likewise finds that people become more satisfied and more optimistic later in life, is in her early 60s and reports her own turning point at about age 50. “I feel like I’ve reached a kind of flow in my work and career,” she told me. No guarantees, of course, but reporting this article has led me to think that the upturn I’ve felt in my 50s is likely to continue. As Andrew Oswald exclaimed to me when I mentioned my own post-40s upswing: “Just wait until you’re 60!”

Cuba, Mas Libre!
It's hard to give credit to Emperor Obama for anything. However, news from our government concerning relations with Cuba continue to take a positive upswing. Visiting rules are being relaxed for travel by U.S. citizens to the island.
Best news is that export of modern-day technology has been approved, which means computers, celphones, consumer electronics, and better internet access for the Cuban population that has lived in the mid-twentieth century for over fifty years. Cuba is finally on the threshold of the new age. Better jobs in a new-borne private sector will blast the stilted economy and empower Cuba's young people, especially.
The best news for last . El Jeffe may be departed already. One can only hope.
Next time. More on the Inglis mafia
