Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

We all like John Wallace. However, this issue with his commander is a red flag. I am sure his supporters will come to his rescue and give me all kinds of scenarios to how it could have happened to,any manager. I guess it could. My question is how will he handle City Hall? Will it be the same hands off management style of the past eight years?
I don't know who the person is to be the next Mayor. What I do know is we need a high energy, out of the box thinker who we can rally around. I'm just not sure we need a tell everyone what they want to hear back slapper to be the next leader of Madison.

Just finished reading the articles concerning graduation data. Madison 2 out of 10 not graduating... putting more math out there that's a classroom of 30 having 6 of those students left behind. That is unacceptable.

Can we call Ginger and have her explain it to us? She would just blame it on Yancey.

Can we ask the board why this is happening? The board members responsible would find someone to blame as well.

How about having the new HS principal explaining all the * * * he inherited . Where is that full time communications person? Oh wait she just relays the message that school is closed or delayed. Highest paid swim coach in the state.

Bottom line we are all at fault. We let the deadbeats keep being deadbeats. We let a select few dictate what is going on. We bury our heads in the sand and think. "Not My Problem" Well guess what it is your problem.. It is all of our problems.

We cannot find a super because no on will work for us. We continue to have fat cats * * * the $$$ from our students. We continue to have members of the so called administrative team fend off the real issues with smoke and mirrors. I am not surprised one bit that MCS lags behind pretty much all of the area districts. No Leadership. Plain and Simple. Yes it does tick me off!

Although voting records & campaign filings are done in their own offices, the department & staff are still part of the County Clerks office. When I double checked with Ms. Eblen she confirmed the information on yesterdays press release was incorrect & was working to send a corrected release at the time of our conversation. Tabitha was very helpful & honest & wanted to make sure that her office took responsibility for the error. She was clear Mr. Shelton filed for the correct district & the problem was a transcription error not Mr. Sheltons. She is forwarding a corrected release to me which I will forward to JB. Special thanks to Ms Eblen & her entire department for stepping up quickly, graciously taking responsibility & clearing up the confusion.

On a personal note: I wish all elected officials took as much pride in correcting his/her own mistakes as quickly & honestly as Ms. Eblen has.

@And the beat goes on; I went back and forth rationalizing the decision on how to vote on the One Southern Indiana proposal. I asked many questions of the presenter. In the end, it came down to the fact that the council had the last say as to what, if any, projects we would help fund.
All projects have to have a combination of private, state and local funding. At the end of the day, if the council doesn’t like it, we don’t pay for it.

Just read the article in the paper about the graduation rate at MCHS. Several times in the article it is mentioned that students have gaps in their schedules/curriculum. My opinion that falls squarely on the administration and the counselors at the school. They are not working with the students to make sure they are getting a proper education, only worried about collecting a paycheck it seems to me. Instead of worrying about buildings etc., maybe the school board should worry about the students and getting them through school with a good education.

How many councilpersons do you believe know where Harrison County is leave alone having ever visited it?
How many councilpersons do you believe received a pledge of support for reelection from Dominic?
How many councilpersons do you believe give a ratzazz about Jefferson county citizens who would like a better job?
Any job?

A few months back, while Madison and Jefferson county slept, Dominic Grote pulled another Grote stunt to insure continued low cost labor for he and his GO8 buddiesl As a member of the Indiana Economic Development Commission, he talked/tricked/bribed/whatever the Jefferson County Council into joining in state supported coalition with several other counties. They are Jefferson, Scott, Washington, Harrison, Floyd and Clark counties. Why those, because they are all on a spoke pointing to River Ridge Commerce Center, owned by Jeffersonville. For those not familiar with RRCC, it is the old Charleston Ammunition Plant, now home to a dozen or more warehouses, the most notable one being Amazon. Currently there are 4 empty (spec) warehouses and three more under construction. Now where do you think 99.44% of the state of Indiana money will go? Hint, not Jefferson county. The jobs there are mostly minimum wage, part time, no benefit with no chance of promotion. Of course, if you are from Jefferson County, you can drive there (or to Harrison County to flip burgers at a McDonalds)for $9/hr.
We know why Dominic pushed this, but why did the council vote for it? Not to help Jefferson county citizens. Craig yes, Shelton yes (he does what Hunt tells him to do), but why Denning?

As a Concerned Citizen of downtown Madison, I would like to know if there is any truth to the latest rumor about the Stellar Project and it's meetings. I was told that the Stellar Group was holding weekly meetings without the public being able to attend these meetings. And when subject was contested and brought to the attention of our City Attorney Mr. Joe Jenner. He agreed after some reluctance that the Stellar Group meetings, according to State Law should be holding there meetings in public. It is also my understanding that once the Stellar Group was informed of Mr. Jenner's recommendations as to having to meet in public. They abruptly canceled all future meetings. I may be totally wrong in my information and I would just like to reach out to anyone that might be able to shed light on this matter. If true. Why would the Stellar Group feel they needed to hide there meetings from the public? What is to hide? If this is true. IT STINKS TO HI HEAVENS!!!! Shame on you!!!
