    What is the latest on the proposed storage facility by Geezer Ghettos (Forest Meadows)?

      FYI the developers of the storage facility withdrew their application after the Planning Commission voted denial. The developers could have appealed to the BOS but chose not to. And, contrary to some rumors, Merita did NOT endorse the project.

      What amazes me is that the "proponents" of Mike O. are jumping on a bandwagon of someone that has lived here how long?
      I think Merita is past her prime, but what has this newcomer offered? Does he really know his constituents? There is another Mike in the race that hasn't made much noise yet. He has lived up here for most of his life, and has an understanding what our schools are facing(all of his kids went to local public schools), understands political structure(Fire Chief and builder), and is involved with his community.
      That guy's name is Mike Borean. I'd love to have him try and make a change in our county. I've known him for 25 years, and I think he cares about the community he lives in. Merits cares, but she is no longer affective.
      We need some fresh blood, but not someone that doesn't understand the dynamics of this diverse county. Old-timers, newcomers, transients, commuters, white collar workers, blue collar workers, farmers, loggers, wine snobs, beer drinkers, teetotalers, welfare bums, second home rich weekenders, and just about everybody in between is who our supervisors need to represent. I think Mike Borean is up for the challenge.

    The storage facility proposal was withdrawn several days ago. As for Merita: when will you posters understand that the majority of voters in her district believe she is honest, works hard, and has the public interest at heart. Give it a break fellows, or come up with a candidate that is actually literate. Majority still rules.
