The End

I disagree. The City of Saint Marys is up to no good right now, as illustrated by the fiasco with sliding through a new 300K+ Amphetheater Roof for the waterfront during a vote with less than 24 hours public notice. We know it is a gigantic waste of money at this time, doing nothing to benefit the public except reduce the beautiful skyline in the park and add an ongoing burden to the maintenance bill of deteriorating infrastructure that is the City of Saint Marys. No person of sound mind would have voted in favor of this expenditure at this time. And a such a price tag. Why not do something that will benefit the tourism industry and citizens, like maybe lighting the Crosswalks downtown so the we can easily see pedestrians. Not adding a giant bill for a structure that detracts from value, isn't properly discussed in a public forum, and reeks of back-door business dealing shadiness. Shame on you  (Nov 4, 2009 | post #11)

You HATE Jesus? Well good, at least you have some relationship with him. It's a start. The only sin that God cannot forgive is unbelief. Think about it.  (Nov 18, 2008 | post #132)

Sheriff Crying Time

I have worked some places that allow you to accumulate your PTO (Paid Time Off) as well as vacation and sick pay. Usually, with a supervisors' approval, you can submit to have this time paid, whether or not you were sick or on vacation. Some policies require that you take your pto during the year in which it was earned, and do not allow carry-over to the next year. If this is the case, it would seem that she was acting prudently - especially if she is at risk for losing her job after the upcoming change of administration. Now, just because it may have been prudent and beneficial to her, does not mean that it was right- either morally or legally. Having not read the policies of the office for which she works, I am unable to say. What I can say, as a partially informed citizen, it that her case *appears* to have a bit of impropriety - particularly when other employees were forced to take time off without pay. I'm sure the other officers could have used the money they did not receive for that time off - and I'm sure that if they were allowed to take sick or vacation pay to make up for it, they most likely would have. So again it seems to come down to more inappropriate behavior by a member of the department, who likely had the blessing of at least one supervisor or superior. Someone signs off on the timecards. Someone submits those for payment. It would be nice to know *who* that someone is - and whether they have read the policies and procedures which they are tasked with enforcing.  (Nov 18, 2008 | post #36)

Vet: Kitten Used As Football

I in no way want to minimize the cruelty of this situation, but it seems to me that much of the attention given to this case of animal cruelty is excessive. The real outrage that demands the cry of the people should be focused on the parents of the Camden County toddler that is fighting for its life - RIGHT NOW - in the hospital, after suffering a fractured skull at the hands of its parents. Both parents have been charge with First Degree Cruelty to Children, yet no one seems to be speaking about this story. Has our country and community become so misguided that the life of a small kitten (which will live) has become of greater value and importance than a human child? Where are the 500+ comments about that?  (Nov 18, 2008 | post #5)

Is there too much trash in Saint Marys?

Word on the street says that Saint Marys residents are upset about the amount of trash piling up on roadsides, medians and public streets. What do you say? What, if anything should be done about this alleged problem?  (Nov 18, 2008 | post #1)
