One thing to add. The four wheelers have been keeping the fire breaks and roads passable from fallen trees, etc. for decades. However, IT IS ONLY SINCE BLACK CREEK HAS BEEN CLEARING LAND ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN IN THE LAST YEAR,OR SO, THAT THE CHEMICALS HAVE BEEN FOUND, ALIVE AND WELL, READY TO DESTROY YOUR LIVER AND KIDNEYS, PLUS NO TELLING WHAT ELSE. Sorry for the shouting, just trying to emphasize, the timeline for the chemicals showing up, since that is what the article was highlighting. Thanks and have a great day. PS. Don't drink the water in Lookout Valley, grow a garden or play in the ponds and creeks. Some have got to make a buck, no matter what might deform an unborn child and poison the wildlife that people hunt, then eat. Pass this article on, people need to realize that when people destroy something they created it is called vandalism and when people destroy something God created it is called "development". Something is wrong with that picture.
The zoo either needs to close or be sold to a public entity. Gary Chazen, the President of the Zoo, has gotten money for land on Aetna Mountain from the Federal Lagacy Program, then received a TIF, tax money and benefits, for 9 million for private development and, also, about a million per year for the zoo. Oh, he is also a partner that received the old Wheland Property for almost nothing. There needs to be an award to be given for the largest welfare receivers in the county, there would be several in the running.
What about improperly exposing himself to children?
The BIG difference is that we live in the HERE AND NOW. We are supposed to learn to not make the same mistakes, to not let those elected to serve us turn it around and have us serve them. I don't care who did what before now, we cannot change that. However, don't stand for it, make a stand against it, take charge and refuse their arrogance and fire them all. Better yet, demand they go to prison as any criminal should!
Surprising how many still want to have Obama's child, I mean it is amazing. Some people's infatuation blind's them forever it appears.
Cast the first stone you arrogant, at a premium, falsies.
Police protection, streets to drive on, fire protection, etc.. That is what cities are for, not a few determining and buying art they deem in needed with tax money. Are you kidding me, the city needs to be in the art business? Is this a comedy page?
Also this is from wiki concerning Cowboy Stadium: "Cowboys Stadium is the only NFL stadium that is completely inaccessible via public transportation, including bus, light rail, or people mover systems. The only way to get to the stadium is via car or private shuttle. The stadium is situated in an area of Arlington that is predominantly residential. Thus, traffic congestion and infrastructure are not adequate to handle the crowds, leading to major delays during events. Many of the neighborhoods in the surrounding areas do not have sidewalks, leading to dangerous situations for pedestrians. The stadium is not near the major urban cores of Fort Worth or Dallas, leading to a diminished fan experience outside the stadium's walls. On September 1, 2012, thousands of fans were forced to wait hours after the Alabama vs Michigan football game for cab rides, due to lack of transportation infrastructure. This led to multiple hour long waits for thousands of event goers."
You left that part out,so all of that lovely art money could have been used to provide some essentials, exactly what the art naysayers are proposing, PROVIDE THE ESSENTIALS FIRST! And yes, lots of tax money was used in the building of the stadium.

You forgot to mention the guy running the wars for the past few years and his team. Why did you do that since you are talking about the "the next war"? Don't you agree the people in charge for the past 4 years and the next 4 years need to be mentioned?
