Here we go again. Shoot Shoot Stab Shoot will the insanity never cease? Again more trouble between 10th and 13th and Harney in the Old Market when a man was stabbed outside a bar near 13th Street.
Two underage people were shot in the parking lot of Louis Bar in the Benson district at closing time. The victims ages were 18 and 20 which leads one to ask. Can the people checking ID’s not do simple math?
It’s a disturbing trend. More and more underage persons are caught in the middle of altercations in areas that should shine as places for this city to be able to shake the stigma of being boring.
And where is Mayor Not So Suttle? He has been remarkably quite in all this except to dispel a study that says were not doing enough to curb crime in the city. Oh wait, Maybe he’s been busy making sure no more ditch trees were being cut down over on State Street. Lets not forget how he dropped what he was doing and ran out to the 60th and State street area when a woman blocked the wood chipper with her car to stop the trimming of some weed trees along the side of the road that were being cut by a company with a permit so that a house could be moved. That’s a priority item for Jimmy pay raise. Stepping up the heat on curbing out of control stupid acts of violence doesn’t seem to be.
Oh by the way. I wonder how many trees were cut down to build the new house now that the one originally selected to move was then raised in order to preserve the weed elms and maples along the side of the road?
Looks as if Penitentiary State will get off the hook with a modest 60 million dollar fine in the aftermath of the Sandusky child abuse scandal. The spineless NCAA reportedly refused the death penalty for the football program thus sending the message that out of control boosters and cash payments to players is far more heinous than the raping and abuse of children and the following cover up by high-ranking University officials. However the University removed the statue of Joe-Pa in the middle of the night and took it to an undisclosed location.
More symbolism of substance I’m afraid.
Hey on a high note, the last two weekends of live horse racing at Horseman’s park appears on all accounts to be a big success. Heres hoping for even more of the same and maybe even a full schedule of racing at the growing facility. It was even reported in Sundays edition of the Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffet Newsletter that Warren himself made an appearance at the track. Let me guess. $2 to show on “I’ll send my money elsewhere” in the 3rd ?
Watch the excessive heat this week folks As the town drys up dont dry up with it.
