Pretrial conference re. $24000 theft from LMRFD — collusion and obstruction?

This is truly bizarre.    LMRFD chairwoman Deb Cass took this matter OFF the agenda at yesterday’s fire district board meeting.  The board was to provide updates on the prosecution of Phillip Picard, but Deb refused any discussion. That really leaves me wondering what chairwoman Cass is covering up!   There’s something really wrong when a fireContinue Reading

Tax liens advertised by the County are EXTREMELY dangerous investments

The COM paper just had a full page ad for people to buy tax liens. Sadly, the County FAILS to warn investors about the RISKS of investing in delinquent property tax liens. Tax DEEDS are definitely the way to go, but I couldn’t find a single property in Dolan or Meadview. When it comes toContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Did anyone put that cow out of its misery or was it left to be killed by coyotes and ravens?

On Facebook in Meadview Uncensored I recently posted about the skinny cows on Charles: https://www.facebook.com/groups/640301882835314/964913677040798/ A cow was reported as down on Bullhead and I didn’t get a response to my inquiries until it was reported as dead a few days later.
