If it is any consolation, from an outsider's perspective, this all makes for interesting reading.

Ethelred:

I had a talk with the publisher when he interviewed me regarding the sewer billing lawsuit and he agreed that the reporting was a problem. Unfortunately, nothing has changed since since. I am planning to sit down with him again and confront him about the whole situation, but I am not holding my breath.

One of the incumbents even made a racially questionable comment regarding "Indian" casinos that I certainly thought was newsworthy. Apparently the reporter did not.

Thanks! I am not holding my breath, but we shall see . . .


By the way, after declaring that she was done with marathons, Eve is now planning multiple ones this year. Do you know much about the one down there?

Congrats! Placing fourth overall ain't bad for your first time running. People must be listening to what you have to say.

Well, it does show where my real competition is. Even without a huge turnout at the candidate's event, the message from that was sufficient for me to place ahead of all but one of the challengers, and even one of the incumbents. However, the other two incumbents are well, well known in the community, and they are going to be difficult to get past. My neighbor Carol is also going to be difficult -- she was the treasurer for Eric Severson's campaign for State Assembly, and she clearly got to know the right people during his campaign. (It is not just how many people that you know, but knowing the right people that really counts.)

So the Village President said last night, while the meeting was in session and on the record, that one of the other board members had to "jew" down the price on a recent purchase. Bet that will not be in the local paper.

Quoting my favorite soliloquy from Richard II will get you no where. Nice try, though!
