How many times does 131 go to kiski every year, maybe they should start charging $10,000 for every false alarm they roll on.

times is tough in saltsburg, the median income for a FAMILY is $37,614, but if everyone is willing to dig a little deeper, we can find a extra 10,000 and ensure that christopher wont be depraved of a single $120 ahi tuna platter at pj browns.

let the poe children eat cake or government cheez or dogfood or hot nuttin, cause if kiski is hurtin for 10 large for a new fountain the taxpayers gots it.

Well, it is their land. As stated in the article, "some commercial landowners are getting $3,000.00 per month". That's $36,000.00 per year, so they aren't out of line asking for $6,500.00 per year as the article states the renegotiated price is. I am sure some of you have a 60 x 60 foot piece of ground on a hill. Offer the county to put it there for a grand a year. Win, win!

Are those commercial landowners operating as non-profits?

Do those commercial landowners cause 2 to 3 false automatic alarms every month?

Kiski started at $10,000 a year and dropped to $6,500 when the county said "effffff you". Going from $1 per year to $10,000!, that my friend, is what we in town call grey poopon inflation with a touch of retard public relations.

the only folks making that much money are in prime locations where real estate is very expensive. you seen the old summer camp at kiski lately where the tower is located? a bunch of old building falling into the ground is not exactly prime real estate.

Is it true that 131 is going to hold a special 'suit and tie' boot drive to aid kiski prep? Hilarious!

Children, please. Anyone who has ever read a post from me on this forum, knows I have an adequate ability to use the english language and I can actually communicate in complete sentences. I seldom, if ever, use popular catch phrases that make absolutely no sense to those of us over 35 years of age.

So.........if you think you are going to confuse anyone into believing you are me, you better pay attention in your english class and learn to use the language. Really, you can do it. You just have to try. Also, under my name, Dover DE appears. Until you can make that happen it is a dead giveaway that you are not me, no matter how hard you try.
I applaud your efforts, and who knows, if you keep practicing you may even cause me to believe you are me.

Thanks anyway for the compliment. I now know there are some of you out there that wish you were me!(sarc.)
