INVITATION TO THE WOMEN OF DEARBORN COUNTY

WOMEN OF DEARBORN COUNTY SOCIAL

Your host

Kathy Scott for Commissioner

This is an invitation to come together to share your feelings, concerns, and needs as citizens of this county. Your input is needed to provide good leadership and future direction.

Sunday April 20th from 2-4 PM

Dearborn Adult Center

311 Tate Street, Lawrenceburg

I am your neighbor and will work very hard to care for our community. In this world of uncertainty, we all need a safe place to come home to. Our children need a healthy place to play; they need education, careers, and jobs that will sustain them through all times. We want a community that grows while keeping its values and integrity as a model for our children.

With this invitation, I am asking you to tell me what is important to you as mothers, career women, and grandmothers so I can represent you in our county government.

Kathy Scott
Candidate for D-1 Commissioner

Three mothers are sitting on a bench in at the Dearborn County Country Club talking about (what else?) how much their sons love them.

Sadie says "You know that expensive painting hanging in my living room? My son, Maynard, bought that for me for my 75th birthday. What a good boy he is and how much he loves his mother."

Minnie says, "You call that love? You know the Mercedes I just got for Mother's Day? That's from my son Gary. What a doll."

Shirley says "That's nothing. You know my son Bob? He's in analysis with a psychoanalyst up in the city. Five session a week. And what does he talk about? Me."

Maxwell is just being pragmatic in supporting Pope. He used up Jeff Hughes to the point that he is now unelectable and certainly Scott will not be his bo bo. Pope is just his hail mary pass to save his influence over the commissioners.

I think Pope views himself as a balanced person- he lives a suburban life but operates farms in the area.

Trust me, Rick Pope is the choice of the developers, They used Hughes up and have pulled the carpet out from under him. You think you can believe what is written by a canidate during an election. I've know Rick for years. Although he does farm, when he was on Planning and Zoning Board, he sided with the developers too many times. To tell you about Rick and John Maxwell would take to long.

Who elected Ewbank?

Where does Ewbank get off with providing anything other than the legal input he was hired to do with our tax dollars?

Ewbank over-stepped his bounds and will be fired by the incoming Commissioners who are not beholden to him for their livelihood.

(b) The executive may:
(1) punish contempt by a fine of not more than three dollars ($3) or by imprisonment for not more than twenty-four (24) hours; and
(2) enforce its orders by attachment or other compulsory process.
(c) Fines assessed by the executive shall be executed, collected, and paid over in the same manner as other fines.
(d) The county sheriff or a county police officer shall attend the meetings of the executive, IF REQUESTED BY THE EXECUTIVE, and shall execute its orders.
As added by Acts 1980, P.L.212, SEC.1. Amended by Acts 1980, P.L.125, SEC.15; P.L.131-1983, SEC.11.

Fox and Hughes just want to open up the entire county to leap frog development, paid for by those unfortunate enough to live near some land that comes up for sale. First, a forced hookup letter arrives in the mail to pay for some developer's sewers miles away from existing infrastructure. Then it just goes on from there. No price is to high for the rest of us to profit the politically connected few.

Don't know how Scott would handle it- but professional jobs exist in thsi county in some fields. A county of 50,000 is not going to habe the diversity of professional jobs that a big city will have. I expect some kids will work here and some will have to go to Cincinnati to work in a chosen profession, if they want to live here. The drive to parts of the city is no worse than a drive across this county.
It isn't realistic to expect to have every profession available in the county. We want our kids to have opportunities. That SOMETIMES means letting them leave us.

The Comprehensive Plan was a good start, but since it did not give free reign to our local greedy developers, Fox and Hughes tabled it.

The development interests' idea of balancing those who cherish the rural nature of this area with their interests is to let developers develop wherever they please and the rest of us are left to balance either paying for their sewers or getting hauled into court by lawyers our tax dollars pay for if we refuse to pay for their sewers!!!

Anonymous said...

Yeah. When lawyers being paid on our dime are not trying to sue us into compliance with their development buddies' development, they try to harass us during county meetings, like that pos Ewbank did to Hammond because he dared to question Ewbank's buddy Maxwell.

Talk to the folks up in that area.

The last time, our inpocket public officials conspired with a few development interests to keep such a plan quiet in order to dupe the public out of their land to better the profits of a few politically connected development interests.

Play above board this time, maybe you can find someone who does not distrust you.

You have to earn trust. Our local crop of developers are nothing but bullies that would use their connections to sue us silly until they get their way. Property owners should only be heard if they are of the John Zeiden variety. Anyone else should have their voice's squelched. Right Mr. Ewbank?

The usual suspects of realtors/developers/bankers/shysters have shown nothing but contempt for the rest of us.

Which is why the chose first to force their development down our throats and now will try the kindler and gentle approach, after their massive failure.

We will not see any real change in their behavior until we remove their enablers from county goverment, starting with Ewbank, Messmore, Fox, Hughes, Fehrman, Morris and Barrett.

The bad news for those who want to develop willy-nilly across this County is that the majority of folks who have chosen to live here their entire lives and those who have chosen this County as their new home, do not wish to see it turned into another Warren County.

Strong-arm techniques have not and will not curry favor for our developers.

As recent history has shown.

There is no "master" plan unless the self-appointed, self-anointed "masters" approve it.

That's easy- as the question is leading the witness, so to speak. The answer would have to be NO. Even Fox and Hughes SAY NO. Problem is no one seems to be able to do anything but TALK about how they hate the sewer situation.

Ask yourself a few questions:
1. Why do our local state reps take a hands off approach to this question?
2. Why is the only answer to county sewers, this cheap (for the sewer company) grinder system?
3. Why do two/three commissioners say they are against it and then vote to give letters of support to the perpetrators of the problem? (St. Leon)
4. Has anyone tied the master plan to solutions for these problems?
5. Why should residents pay for sewers they don't use and don't want?
Let's start with answers or thoughts on these questions...- not just more name calling for the powers in office- as frustratingly inept as they are at planning- we might try giving them answers and seeing if they use some of it. The name calling is producing a lot of heat and not much light.
IMHO (in my humble opinion)

You asked for a yes or no answer to "do the people of northern Dearborn County want industry". I have lived here for 54 years with my family, friends and neighbors. Our children are now starting their families here and the answer from all of us is NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO . The reason we fight so hard to keep our community rural character is that is why we live here. We live here for a life time. Only a few greedy land owners team up with the greedy developers and try to take away what is good ands .

So much proposed development, residental and commercial, seems to be premised on forcing local folks living around such proposed development subsidizing the sewers needed for such development.

And since you are against forced hookups, I take it you will not be voting for Hughes, Fox, Fehrman and Barrett?

According to our development friends you hung around for 54 years just a hoping and a praying you would be saved from all those trees and fields with the influx of major amounts of asphalt, concrete and glass.

Our development friends are so sure of that, they figured that you would not mind if they schemed behind your back to begin to turn your rural neighborhood into a commercial zone.

If only we had this blog when Interstate 74 was built? Then you would be fighting the construction of that highway because the flux asphalt. Oh by the way, why don't you just stay off using the highway, since you do not like it. I wish everybody could have what you have, but we don't. But for some dam reason people are not allowing any potential of new jobs or anything. There is a bigger calling in this county then forced sewer hookups. I do agree it is so important to electing public officials that know what the hell they doing.

We need officials that promote the county, not demote it. We also need public officials that will run the county like a business and will not be influenced by a developer or someone that is against(Anti-developer)development.

Tell me who that person and I vote for them.
