Lawmaker fined for underage booze sales Rep. Manning was fined $600 for selling alcohol to a minor who later wrapped her truck around a tree. Think this is business as usual, or did our GOP Elvis impersonator state rep get some preferential treatment?

Losing jobs... gaining home sales
Anyhooo, more $$$ will be thrown at re-training programs with much bravado and grand standing from supposed fiscal conservatives, that again have no problem helping jobs go overseas. Try putting that cash beforehand into someone that can get jobs and business here instead of CEDC and the Exec Directors tax payer guaranteed paycheck. An Exec Director, incedentally, who is sooo far over his head with this job loss issue and has sparkles in his eyes from schmoozing with politicos. PUKE!
This brings me to another point. These jobs come with home and business foreclosures and thus more homes on the market for those out of state, or at least out of area, homebuyers. Certain real estate brokers/State Senators have no problem selling these foreclosures. Since so many solons lack the moral character to put their constituents above their own self interest, (read "pocket book" as in ATV trails park dealio with, allegedley, $180K going to said real estate office) as George Washington warned against oh so many years ago. The State Senator alluded to here is certainly maintaining his penchant for exploiting his constituency when the opportunity and rubles presents. That's too bad.
I can't wait to see Governor Lynch and fellow Republican John Gallus holding hands in the next Edi Tucker Coos Democrat news article/photo-op in front of Tea Birds claiming "We are doing everything we can for the North Country". Such tripe. Such bilge water. Such empty promise.
I am glad I don't have television to watch that crap. By the way, Tea Birds does serve an excellent cup-o-joe and lunch special.
