Health Care - Pecan Gap, TX

Too large and complicated for anyone to understand. Legislatures continue to pass bills that no one can understand. It is time for government to take the KISS approach, "Keep it simple and shot".  (Feb 3, 2010 | post #5)

the upcoming election

I wonder how adding a local tax on meals and other businesses will bring more business to Cooper. It would seem to me that to get more businesses to invest in Cooper, the business would need to be encouraged with tax incentives to move to or increase there Cooper presences. All of us paying the taxes in Delta County all ready know that they are high for what we get. There are about 5,500 people residing in Delta County, but only a small number are gainfully employed. Many are past working years and are living on fixed incomes. These people must budget every dollar against inflation. So how do we fix Cooper and Delta County. We need to attract the kinds of business that will be able to prosper and employ the local population. We are by nature a rural and farming area. Our people are hard working. We have some natural resources that may help, good water supply at Cooper Lake and reasonable land costs. SR 24 provides good transportation to I-30 and the DFW metroplex. So let's get leaders that have the imagination and insight to attract one or more new businesses that can utilize our resources. We don't want to grow too fast or too large, just enough that we give our county a kick start for the future. But before anyone will invest one cent of their money in this county, they will have to be convinced that it will show a fair return.  (Jan 30, 2010 | post #132)

the upcoming election

A person can be given credit for attacking ideas, but it speaks volumes about the attacker when attacks are personal. This county is too small with too few assets to not take advantage of all of them. Let us have a spirited primary selecting each parties best candidates. The final election in November will give us our officers for the next four years.  (Jan 23, 2010 | post #82)

As an outsider, a bit of advice. Use a good spell checker and proof read everything you post. You are only known on here by what we see. If your posts are not well done, then we will only have that to judge you by.  (Jan 23, 2010 | post #2)

It is our responsibility as citizens to become aware of elected officials, their work habits and positions on issues. We then must exercise our duty and vote. Once the election is decided, we must then hold the elected officials accountable to their promises. It is important to keep a mental record for the next election. The "VOTE" is our way to reward or fire an elected official. Factual information regarding their performance is good. It must be credible and backed with facts. Every post on this thread and others should be done with extreme care for accuracy. Too many people believe all they read here and at other internet sites. With the coming of county elections in several offices next year, I challenge all voters to become familiar with all the candidates, their positions, backgrounds and character. Evaluate carefully and then make it a point to vote.  (Dec 16, 2009 | post #18)

Ben Snow has done the job required, including spending time away from home for training. Too often we are shortsighted when it comes to public figures. It helps when we do some research on a subject and make sure our facts are correct before making comments.  (Dec 12, 2009 | post #13)
