What does that say about the democratic candidates when everyone of them trails trump in a national poll.
I think the Octopus was sold to local sushi restaurants to pay for the Covino defense fund.
With all the money we've spent on sidewalk nipples, we could have black topped several hundred miles of bike paths. I'm sure that our fellow American's with disabilities would prefer to have a safe pass to commute over stupid yellow nipples on the sidewalks. It costs thousands to install these things and there's no rhyme or reason where they put them. They're installed on sidewalks on Pine where nobody walks. They're installed on streets like Emerald that doesn't even have a continuous sidewalk. How about finishing the G*D D$MN sidewalk before adding usesless nipples.
If you're an advertiser, take note. Your ads are not The Statesmans first priority and they are limiting exposure.
Ammon Covino should be congratulated for realizing a dream that expands the minds of our children. There's no doubt it was a hard fought fight to open the aquarium. Bravo for your effort and good luck with your expansion. Though small, this aquarium gives more interaction with the sea creatures than any of the giant mega aquariums on our coasts.
I only caution him in associating with the land sharks that have torn the finacial fingers off too many folks in the valley.
Thank God someone finally said something!!!!!
- If we are going to say that only one religion can hold office, than they need to start paying more taxes, because the rest of us are not equally represented.
Considering the fact that the US congress has 15 Mormons serving as representatives and senators, statistically they have more representation than the population as a whole. Conservative estimates of the adherants to Mormonism are around 3-4 million. The church iteslf claims around 6 million. This means that less than 2% of Americans identify themselves as Mormon yet almost 3% of the members of congress are members of the Mormon church.
Where is this lack of representation you speak of?
Studies show that 1.6% of Americans are atheists and another 2.4 % of Americans are agnostic yet not a single representative in congress admits to holding such views. Over 16% of Americans claim no religion. I'd say this is the most under represented sector of society. Does that mean we don't have to pay taxes?
