ROCK puts the pressure on Clarksville

Press Release from ROCK

"A private investigator has uncovered illegal activities including and far worse than prostitution being offered by Theatair X itself. The Indiana Attorney General and the Federal Prosecutor for this district are ready to act, but the Clarksville Town Council is refusing to simply enforce existing laws by not allowing the local police to bust the facility. The council has been approached in private with the results of this 24 month investigation by a professional former FBI agent who calls Theatair X violations of sex laws "the worst I've seen in my 26 year career," but the council says it will not act because it has not heard any complaints from the citizens of this area about Theatair X. "

Commentary from me:

Maybe there haven't been any complaints because the ones that would be complaining do not go to this establishment and the ones that do are not complaining. It is time for Clarksville to clean up their town. Many don't know, but Veteran's Parkway was slated to go right through the Theatair X property, but with some fancy legal work and route changes, we now have our children asking what all the X's are for when we simply want to go to Lowe's.

The press conference to unveil to the news media the illegal activities taking place at Theatair X will occur Tuesday beginning promptly at 5:30 PM and ending promptly at 6:15 PM at Kye's I in Jeffersonville. A link to ROCK's site is at the right.

Floyd County Tables Tax, Then Flip Flops Again

The new Floyd County income tax was shelved briefly by Larry McAllister and then put back in rotation. Seems Larry Mac wanted to wait until after the first of the year to get a glimpse of what the state had in store for counties. The pressure from citizens helped him make that decision. Then the faithful democrats went to work, doing what they the lawyers. Terese Plaiss, the county auditor, took it upon herself to call Ice Miller in Indianapolis. After learning that the council would have to wait until April 1, 2009 to act if it didn't pass the tax before the end of 2008, the measure once again found favor with Big Mac. Grab your ankles Floyd County. In an attempt to show that there is plenty of room for more taxes, I will list some that we already pay. I am sure I will leave some out, so jump right in with the sneaky little one I forget.
