Poor Bob Ewbank...

...people are paying attention to what he and his ilk are doing...

...people he cannot bully...

...how sad!

Vera, Jeff and Rick are the exception and not the rule in this county, Bob!

The rest of us have real jobs, ethics and morals...

...we don't need to rely on your good charity to make it through each pay period!

What will you and Gary do?

Please, please, please, let Jeff and Rick make total asses of themselves and run as independent candidates in the general election after their loss in the primary. Let them leave their indelible mark on Dearborn County History, as being two of the thickest, most obtuse tools ever to be booted from office.

Still waiting on an editorial from the Bright Beacon.

Maybe they could do a half-page hit piece on the spelling of some bloggers?

Or belittle those folks who "actually" show up for public meetings and causes?

One thing you can bet, it will not be anything the least bit negative concerning UCB Bank, Ewbank, Maxwell and the rest, will it, Liz?

Groveling.

Jeff supports those who dictate in backrooms, but discounts those who show up out front, in public, wish to debate.

Mr. Wolgamot's editorial is both on point and dead center as to his reading of Jeff Hughes.

I'm beginning to think an education would be wasted on Mr. Hughes.

Erika Schmidt Russell is doing her job and she gets it.

Liz, on the other hand...

Rumor has it that Ewbank and Morris are on the look out for a couple of dead hookers and those willing to plant them in the beds of those running against their ethical spawn.

I'm thinking of renewing my subscription to the Journal and Register.

Oblique and side-stepping references to corruption do not make a real newspaper.

A load of crap, is a load of crap.

No matter how many shysters have air fresheners fashionly fastened around their necks.

Four "MEN" who would not sell their souls or their fellow citizens' souls to enrich a few of this County's baser and despicable inhabitants!

Maynard and Liz refused to join in this lot.

What do they have in common?

Four men who simply understand corruption when they see it.

Just like the rest of us honest, God loving folks.

3 of those "men" voted for Vieste and drained thousands of dollars out of the county.

Poor "tax Dollar Fairy" Fehrman, he has to subvert his religious background and calling to serve his employer Maxwell.

Since he has succumbed to Maxwell and greed, how does he live with himself and his religious and ethical calling?

So, let us chase off those who may be coming around?

Think of the "facts" these folks were inundated with, by the likes of Ewbank and Company?

Think of what you are saying.

The past is the past, the future...well...

One cannot serve God and mammon, so it seems he's made his choice.

Vieste and Fox, Hughes, Benning and Ewbank bamboozled a lot of people with their big hype and secret meetings and fancy agenda.

Maybe the Council was sold a big load of crap dressed up as the salvation of the County.

And no course, once set, can go unaltered?

Open your heart.

Do not chase away those who may wish to be your brothers.

Will you invite him to "take it"...or will you block him for his past supposed transgressions?

Step aside...let God do his work.

Charlie, ask John why HE did not already hook on to St. Leon Sewers, as was mandated for the rest of us?

Ask him Charlie.

Why Charlie?

Bob Ewbank, as a child, had the first newspaper route where his neighbors were forced to pay for a newspaper that he felt he was "above" delivering, so he did not!!!

Then he got a job non-sharpening lawn mower blades for Johnny Nugent!!!

Then, magic happened!!!

And it is here we find ourselves!!!

The Blog that made Vera Benning famous let hear more of Benning
she is an interesting person.

Very Very interesting.

Very Very interesting.

If you like slow learners...

She is now nothing more than a patronage hire charity case...

Just another Bob Ewbank tragedy...

Anonymous said...

Don't blame Bob for Vera!

Even Bob could not create a hubris filled backwater harridan such as Vera!

She is unique all to herself!

I heard you cannot even mention her name around her neighbors without an outpouring of opinions as to the bile she spews forth!

???

Did the New York Times make Imelda Marcos famous???

Other than a couple pairs of shoes, no distinguishable difference between Imelda and Vera!!!

Rick and Jeff are lackeys...but even they have some redeemable, likable characteristics.

But Vera, there is something, deep-seated, dislikable there.

perhaps because the extension on the subdivision approval expired in late Nov or Dec

Benning is not entirely gone. Fox and Hughes gave her another year on the PTABOA Board (the board that hears appeals on assessments) and she still screws the county as the the sewer board secretary (in a way it is appropriate for her to be the sewer employee - she's full of it.)

The county will be better off when she's cut off to where she cannot damage anyone in the county, at least from a government standpoint.

Did Benning ever apologise to the folks of High Ridge?

Keep this thing going with benning I hear she loves it

No, it is putting our tax dollars into her purse and helping a few corrupt developers try to force the rest of us to pay for their sewers that makes Benning feel all warm and cozy.

A real job would leave her both frigid and fidgety!

By the way, is High Ridge still dumping raw sewage into Hogan’s Creek?

Anonymous said...

just how objective is MS BENNING on the PTABOA board....

Anonymous said...

Benning, objective?

She will trip all over herself pandering to developers!

There will be a sea change next year when the development toadies are thrown out of office.

Watching development's political dirty tricks will be entertaining to say the least.

Stock up on popcorn.
