Operators - slick operators at that - are standing by now!
Meanwhile, yes, local bluffs are continuing to erode - at an even faster pace than anticipated. Tidal action down below, runoff up above, and goodbye bluffs. If you thought it was expensive to deal with the old Garbage Bluff, wait until more homes are imperiled and abandoned because of bluff slough.
It's no bluff! Everything must go!
Meanwhile, it looks like the race (it'll be a slooow one) to replace Mike Chapman is on. We meet the first two candidates in twin articles by Paul Clotlieb.
The Democrats are offering up Ron Richards, 71, who used to be a County Commissioner decades ago. Now, Ron's a well-off retired guy who likes to go out on his boat. But he doesn't want to seem like just a well-off retired guy, so he is apparently describing himself as a "commercial fisherman." Retired, or just plain tired, Ron Richards hardly seems to represent the future.
On the other hand...The Republicans have their own leftovers on offer, in the form of Maggie Roth, 61. Maggie is the widow of Terry Roth, and like her late husband, Maggie is edging close to Perennial Candidate status. A pleasant-enough-but-clueless right-wing gadfly, Maggie might be described as a sort of "community organizer," if not for the fact that she would doubtlessly reject such a title. In any case, like Ron Richards, Maggie Roth hardly seems to represent the future.
Just swallow it and don't ask any questions.
Believe me, you'll be happier that way.
So, to sum up: A police dog slips into the wrong house and bites the wrong guy...The bluffs keep on slip, slip, slipping away...And the local political parties are trying to slip the voters some cold, cold leftovers.
Just another Sunday edition of the PDN, chock full of good news. Makes you wonder how depressing the stuff they aren't telling you is.
