DRUDGE REPORT Posts Second Story About Red Light Camera Controversy. Links to ATHENS BANNER HERALD Story Shown Below.

Cameras no show in court By BLAKE AUED – Key witnesses failed to show up for trial Tuesday in Athens-Clarke Municipal Court. Lawyer Regina Quick, defending two clients from charges that they were photographed running red lights, subpoenaed five traffic cameras at the West Broad Street-Alps Road intersection to testify that her clients did […]

Mayor Pringle Spins the SID

As quoted by reporter Michelle Gladden in yesterday’s Asbury Park Press: “We are creating a conduit by which the business community can do something collectively to improve the downtown.” He says “can”. He means must. This is not empowerment. It is the opposite. It is force. It is collectivism. Anyone who believes in individual liberty […]

Flat Tire on the Road to Sharetown

Seems three big potholes along the road to his shared police services plan have given the mayor a blowout. At Wednesday night’s council meeting Mayor Pringle expressed his great disappointment that three of our four councilmen have come out against the plan before even hearing the twice-postponed presentation about it. (The first postponement was because of the […]

De-program Belmar

One of the things I find most irritating about the Pringle administration is it’s enthusiasm for involving Belmar in state programs and grants. These programs are a significant cause of our astronomical state tax burden. Additionally, they damage the recipients’ autonomy because the state dictates all sorts of conditions on how the money is used. Their effect […]

Who Runs Belmar?

Everyone who knows me, or reads this blog, knows I hate taxes. I only accept as legitimate that portion which goes towards essential services only government can provide such as police, courts, and infrastructure. All the rest is, in my opinion, legalized theft. So am I pleased that the governor is preparing to impose a 2.5% cap on property tax increases? No. […]

Burden of Argument

I believe it was Winston Churchill who said when battling a deadly epidemic it is not necessary to give equal voice to the side of the virus. In political debates I often hear that we must give both sides equal credence and that the arguments of both sides must be considered with equal weight. We must […]

Colleen Graney

I didn’t know her. I didn’t even know of her. My wife and both my children knew her though and were quite fond of her. I don’t know why God allows terrible things like this happen. All we can do is trust in him and know that Colleen is in his loving hands now.

“Free” Beaches and Government-Supplied Happiness Lessons.

I’m sure many of you read the article in Sunday’s Press about the push for the beaches to be “free”. I object to using the term “free” in this instance. Their “free” beaches should actually be referred to as “paid for by somebody else” beaches. To my mind a “free” beach is one where you are […]
