During the last few months we have heard countless stories of budget problems relative to our state and county government. Both state and county officials indicate that there will be further cuts in social and human services. The thought of any more cuts within those two entities is frightening. Each department is already overburdened and understaffed. As civil servants are encouraged to retire to ease the fiscal stress, their positions are not being replaced.Sunday July 13 13:53:38 2014 The passing of our Uncle Murray, June 10,2014. Uncle Murray made us remember what it is like to learn, have fun, help people and what it is like to cry until God decided it was your time, your time to go so he took your life away.
Officials will not confirm if the bodies recovered are fire fighters, emergency workers, plant workers or regular citizens.About half the population in the town was evacuated, including a nursing home with more than 130 residents.Search and rescue crews sifted through the still smoldering remains for survivors throughout the day Friday."At this point they are in the continuation mode of search and rescue, which to me means that they are still going out and looking for survivors of the blast from Wednesday evening," Sgt.
When I asked Senate historian Ritchie to compare this debate with others, (the House historian's office does not comment on comparisons) he replied, "This is kind of tame compared to ones in the 18th and 19th century. The Congress has a long history of heated debate, with a lot of strong opposition and stalemate. Controversy is nothing new."But I cry for our city. After watching the appalling circus, seeing lawyers' fees mount by the day, and a senseless waste of time that takes our sight off the bulls eye of making our town the best mid sized city in America, I sense that just the recall alone will cause some good and promising candidates to shy away from public service. We need solid leadership badly but who among us wants to endure anything like Mayor Littlefield has been forced to swallow?
I moved to a sub from Boise 4yrs ago n I knew there would be guidelines per CCRs. I made sure I'd fit n my dogs as well. I love where I live n ended up on the BOD for the HOA for 3yrs before stepping down a couple months ago. If you don't like having an HOA Don't move there, do your homework before you buy where there is an HOA . Ask questions n get involved, after all it is your new neighborhood. Take n show some pride where you live. HOA do have a purpose. With that being said, I know firsthand the power tripping board members that do nothing for the good of the sub but their own n their friends agendas. It's like a good Ol boys committee, rules are made to be changed to protect the friends they go boating with or play sports with, they stay on the board with 3 out of 5 members they hang with so they always have majority vote when they dictate how things will be and it goes to a vote. The turnout at annual meetings drops to next to no one showing up due to rude n pushy bully tactics some use on the board.In the past year, there has been a very significant increase of almost 50% in the number of properties sold in the January to July period in Galway city and county, from 732 properties in 2013 to 1,085 properties in 2014. This has continued a trend apparent over the last number of years, where the number of properties sold has increased considerably year on year. Less than 450 properties were sold in the same period in 2011, showing a dramatic increase of 140% in the three year period 2011 to 2014. Indeed 100 more properties were sold in the first seven months of this year than in all of 2011. This trend of increased sales is clear in most areas of the city and county.
Are routinely cited in national news stories as having one of the lowest employment rates in the nation. Why do we need to create jobs? Plus, this particular expansion will do nothing to create jobs for folks from here. who already have the expertise and the security clearance. and Charlottesville is also routinely cited as a city with a high poverty rate and astronomical cost of living. Our city has a poverty rate of about 18 percent, almost twice the state rate. I kind of get annoyed when people keep citing our unemployment rate as if that tells the whole story. When you compare our cost of living to other counties with similar situations our median income pales in comparision. Stafford, Spotsylania, Prince William, Fauquier, Chesterfield, Goochland, James City, and Chesapeake are just a few jurisdictions where the median household incomes is above Albemarle County. Notice how many of these places where the cost of living isn as high. In Stafford, Fauquier, and Spotsylvania the median incomes are 65k or higher. In Albemarle, its about 53,000. Now are you really going to tell everyone that the cost of living in Albemarle is 12,000 22,000 dollars cheaper a year than those counties?The only guarantee is that unchecked systems will continue to lose information. What would make a difference in the lackadaisical attitude toward security would be a looming threat of legal action against companies who lose information. It would also require that the courts put more emphasis on the burden that individuals face when their information is lost. A couple of years of credit monitoring often is typical compensation for an ensuing lifetime of trouble faced by the millions affected.
The basic difference between an open question and a closed question is what they provide the person being asked. When you are asked an open question it helps you think more about an issue. A closed question will not do that. It may force you to answer before you are ready, or require a "yes" or "no" answer that doesn't allow more thinking about the issue.
A delayed flight could be one of the bigger setbacks the young superstar has faced in his meteoric career.

In this photo provided by NBC, Jimmy Fallon appears with Joan Rivers, right, during his "The Tonight Show" debut on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, in New York. Fallon departed from the network's "Late Night" on Feb. 7, 2014, after five years as host, and is now the host of "The Tonight Show." Rivers appeared on the show after 49 years earlier to the day, the veteran comedian had made her first appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" in that very studio, and had not appeared on "Tonight" since 1987, when she was banned by Carson after jumping to Fox to host her own short lived show.

Thus FarFees + FeesUp to this point the eBay auction generated a total of $2.15 in fees. If we run a simple cost calculation (cost of doing business) up to this point we find that $2.15 in fees against a sale of $15.50 results in a cost rate of 14% (13.87% to be precise, eBay rounds up so I do as well). Is selling on eBay worth it? As of right now, this example auction is sitting at a 14% rate in eBay and PayPal fees. Remember, we still haven taken any time to wrap and ship those buttons."This ranks as one of the lowest Fourth of Julys ever," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box office tracker Rentrak. "We always think of Fourth of July being a big weekend. This year, we just have to lick our wounds and look forward to 'Planet of the Apes' and some other films to get us back on track."

It was as if Boehner had denounced the health care reform law by saying that it would probably be a good idea to require people to have insurance and subsidize it for the poor, but that there was absolutely no reason to nationalize all the hospitals and have them run by the Army.
