May Weather Outlook

Tag: Rain, Storms, Weather

I am back with my monthly updates and what a month to do an update! The spring of 2011 has started as the wettest in history! April set a record as the wettest month in recorded history. The showers and thunderstorms of April added up to a total accumulation of more than fourteen inches of rain. Simply unbelievable! April temperatures were consistently mild but there were several days of cool weather. During April we didn’t see much in the way of really warm weather. April had only one 80+-degree day and that was during the middle part of the month when temperatures reached 85 degrees. Will May continue the spell of wet and cooler than normal weather?

Tag: Council

Anyone know when the city council seats are going to be up for re-election and are there any interested parties? I may have some interesting information about a current council member that could help your campaign.

Anyone know what the rules are for 501C organizations?  What do they have to file with the IRS.  What happens if they are misusing 'non-profit' funds for personal use?  Should this information get turned over to authorities? 

I think this needs further investigation. Make sure you know, and I mean really know, the people you're working with.  There are crooks out there disguised as good parents taking your money and using it for their personal needs and not for non-profit fundraising.  It will all come out in time and some of the players will surprise and shock you - it's disgusting how they take advantage of others by lying and stealing.  Karma.  Do you hear me?  K-A-R-M-A....

Generational Memories

Tag: Historical Society, History

Each generation has its own special memories.

My parents were living on the other side of Butler County in 1943, the year that I was born, but those who grew up in this part of the world experienced the same situation, information, cost of living, and type of lifestyle that I am going to share with you today.

I was born during World War II, so that made me older than the “Baby Boom” generation and younger than the Depression generation. Still, there were some very notable and memorable things that went on, besides my birth. The following is a small grouping of those happenings.

The New York Yankees won the World Series (go figure). The Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup. The Heisman Trophy winner was Angelo Bertelli of Notre Dame. Wyoming won the NCAA Basketball championship. The U.S. Golf Open was not held, due to the war. The Indianapolis 500 was not held due to the war. Read more »
