On Enrollment drop in Milton further dampens chance of referendum
Both the city and schools should open OUR checkbook so that we can see each and every expense. There is a push for this in the city of Chicago, and they already do this in Texas schoold districts. Let us see line by line where the money is going.
On Hixson proposes highway renaming
Can we suggest renaming the section that runs from Madison to the Ambrose section be called Hit-the-Road Hixson Highway. That is the road that Hixson will take back home after his crushing defeat next year.
On Open carry in Milton
mespl, I understand what you are saying. I have to think that those that decide they need to carry will feel even more insecure on the trips planned w/o the gun. While a few will opt not to make those trips, I will bet on more of the carriers will forget or disregard such rules. They will not discern between their right to carry and the publics right to deny that right on a premises-by-premises basis. I am not taking sides on this. I choose not to carry, but retain that right regardless. Do I feel more comfortable in a store knowing the guy next to me is packing? Maybe, but maybe not. I bet it is not for the reason you may feel uncomfortable though. I know people that handle guns regularly have faith in their gun handling skills, however how many times do we read about a police officer, or in Rock Co, a Deputy that fires off a round unintentionally? The chances are almost as slim as encountering a genuine situation that warrants the use of a civilians weapon. Looking cool, acting tough, or intimidation is not the intent of the right. I am no more intimidated by a person carrying a gun in his holster than I am of him without it. If he feels he needs the weapon to do anything other than end an statistically unlikely situation great. If he needs it to feel more secure, it is nothing more than a "blanky" a young child takes everywhere they go.
cty35799 Aug 23, 2009 at 6:44 p.m."What is the law in regards to having a gun (not concealed) in a car while driving through Milton? It seems as though it would be legal as long as it is in open view."
It is illegal to have the weapon in the vehicle w/o being fully incased and unloaded. It does not matter if it is in Milton or any other place in the State.
For the people in favor of the open carry law as well as those that place restrictions on where one can openly carry, what do you expect a person will do with the weapon when they take it off to go into Subway, the school, or city hall? Will it be placed under the seat of the car? Placed in the nice grocery basket on the bike someone is riding to save in order to save the environment? In the baby stroller they leave outside?
On Edgerton voters approve city hall referendum
E-townguy, did you run? Do you plan to run? No, she won because she was good! She comes to the table with fresh ideas, new point of view, optimistic outlook, and the best interest of the taxpaying citizens in mind. Would you have felt better if she squashed one of those excellent, but M.I.A., candidates you so desire? As long as Edgerton opts to utilize an alderman-ward format, there will continue to be a shortage of candidates. There are pluses and minuses to each format, but whining about it as if it would have made a difference is wasting all of time.
Motzaball great ideas, great soup! Mazel tov!!
