Heers, Red Light Cameras, New Jail

There is a letter to the editor in today's News-Leader asking where the city got the money to buy the Heer's building.

Couple of days ago there was a letter in the same paper figuring up the costs of the new red light cameras (approximately $4,000 per direction per interection==$16,000 per the total tune of about 3.5 million dollars.)

A city municipal court employee embezzles millions of dollars.

After being voted down several times the city decides to use existing funds to build a crime lab.

It appears that when the council and city decides to spend my money they just decide, regardless of what the voters have said.

Oh sure, they let us decide the important things: liquor in the parks, 18-21 year olds in bars. My thought is if you are old enough to fight and die in Iraq, if you are old enough to vote, you ought to be old enough to make up your own mind if you want to go to a bar or not.

I am dreading getting my property tax bill this year.
