Comments: There is an Ice for Commissioner sign in front of Mr. Republican Joe Jenner's law firm. If you have not noticed, the local bird cage liner has been running scare headlines against Trump; could this be the Republican newspaper is trying get the public to vote Democratic in an effort to get Ice enough votes to be elected. The GO8 is running scared, they know JCIDC, which they own, is going to lose the lawsuit against the county and they will stop at nothing to get Cash and Ice elected. If those two are elected, the lawsuit will be dropped and JCIDC will get the county's $80,000 per year. And back comes Wilbur as county attorney. The GO8 will stop at nothing to keep wages low and competition out of Jefferson county. When it comes to $$$$$, to the "Community Leaders", there is no Republican or Democratic party, only their private party.

Comments: JB your readers might like the video of City Councilman David Alcorn disclosing not only information on his meetings with seniors but also the mayor denying Alcorn options to be present for a vote on the nursing home based activity area that both the mayor and Trilogy call a senior center. I believe Larry Harry has the Cable 15 video.

Comments: What you see in the Senior Center docs is that at a meeting on September 2, 2015, it was said clearly that the Senior Center is moving to the old KDH building. BTW, later, it says that the 100W block of Main Street is a key business area. Of course the current Senior Center is in that block. The doc is in the ABC Revitalization Plan.
The invoice is for architectural design of the proposed Trilogy Senior Center. YOu can see it started in November of 2015. The follow-up is that the city said they have no contract with that company. Then there is the Trilogy press release with Mayor Welch who says they are working to move Senior Center to River Terrace. The first public hearing notice in the paper on this was March 12, 2016 to show intent to apply for grant and move to Trilogy.
The last two are a press release from Mayor Welch on restarting the process to move the Senior Center and details on the grant application.

Comments: JB do you if the county is turning over Georing and Sparks to the Bar or Indiana supreme or whoever deals with unethical attorneys? Cash has come unglued that his best buddy Georing might lose his law license and supposedy Sparks has decided to finally decided to turn over at least some of JCIDCs problems to someone else in the firm. It's beginning to sound like the county has the group by whatever shriveled up b@//s they had .

Comments: Do not forget that at 5:30 today there is a public hearing at City Hall on the City of Madison applying for a half million dollar grant from the state to use federal tax dollars to construct a new senior center inside the Trilogy River Terrace building. Total cost of the project is around 700K. This would move the current Senior Center from Main Street. It is at least a chance for your voice to be heard.

Comments: As MCS pushes to move 5th graders into the jr. high, an interesting an article http://www.dallasnews.com/news/education/2016/09/26/middle-school-can-one-idea-get-rid appeared in the Dallas News. Many in the community believe that closing the outlying schools was a huge mistake and that MCS is moving in the wrong direction. If E.O. Muncie is in horrible shape, surely that was known before they quickly closed buildings that were in much better shape. Perhaps they should reopen those schools and go back to K-8 elementary schools and close the jr. high. Would 5th-8th graders do better in smaller classes/smaller schools?
