We all know JB got mad at the “Blond Lady” because she didn't get to his public records request about VMI spending fast enough but when she did he dumped all the dirty details right to this page. Tons of free staff meals and staff misuse of the card for personal purchases. Then there was the junkyard sign & lots of other bad picks for advertising. One of the worst scandals was the marketing lady sneaking extra salary by claiming she wasn’t hired to do design work. Then Jb asked for her job script and Blondie turned it over. She’s not on the board because Lucy Datillo lobbied to suspend her because they thought it was wrong that she disclosed the records. There was a big blow out at a tourism board meeting where Lucy came unglued and got angry and rude. Anyway, my guess is Blondie hasn’t gone away. In fact she’s probably doing more now under the radar. But I agree. She’s honest and doesn’t mess around with liars. No wonder VMI hates her & Courtney deserves a schitstorm for letting all that happen.

jb reply: JB is always mad at the blond lady - Just ask him and he'll tell you he doesn't like her. Currently the fight is over, why are there no more jelly beans at the winery? But she always has the "Inside Scoop"/.>

Why is the Blond Lady no longer the Treasurer for the JCBT?
She creates a level of trust for the public.

Curtis is a fine man but his energies would best be spent on recruiting softball and baseball tournaments to Madison.

Good God Ya'll. What planet ya'll from? If the city, county, state or federal government, wants to hand out money, I'll be the first in line. All the stimulus checks, don't hear about anyone getting that. so much free money out there to take if you know how to get it. Can't blame any business for applying for help, especially if its offered. Looks to me the smarter one applied. Right or wrong it was offered, how could anyone refuse? Agree or disagree? If it's offered why not?

So the liquor store on walnut applied for a grant to help pay for some repairs that where most likely more expensive than normal because of the out of towners on the historical board that seem to know so much about our town .
SO the Craftons ,Heitz's Craig's,,Greve's dont they have other jobs or political connections. How did they get their Grant's? Must be who ya know ,or who you b..w

Of course John & Lori Heitz supports VMI. VMI was spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars at their various restaurants every month.

We don't need VMI and their bloated salaries. All we need to do is contract with a marketing agency to provide services.

jb reply: Not only did the thief get promoted but she also got a pay raise approved by Bramer and Dattilo.

Somebody help me out here please.

This covid thing has been hard on a lot of people all over. People out of work, laid off, businesses closed, mortgages foreclosed and a whole lot less money for ice-cream and beer.

I wonder, which moron in our fair city seems to think one of the above is going to drive to Madison and pay fifty bucks for tickets to watch boats run in a circle on the Ohio?

People don’t remember Joe Craig got a Pace grant right before the city set up rules to keep Tif board members from benefiting from the program. Trevor Crafton gets a ton of local dollars. Rumor has it he tried applying for a county covid grant when he was going to accept a tourism board appointment. It would have been a huge conflict of interest. Don’t know who stopped that one but I have my suspicions and thank goodness. I dont have a problem with money going to liquor stores but I have a problem with it going to people who have plenty of money to make their own repairs. Wasn’t that long ago the president of the chamber got a big grant to redo his home claiming it was his elderly mother in laws house. It may have been that way on the deed but the chamber president taking handouts looked pretty bad. Covid money is one thing going to small business but the PACE money program was set up to benefit the wealthier folks in this town. You gotta remember that it’s the honest people who get blasted by politicians and crooks like McGee and Craig and the fat lady at VMI that get a pass no matter how bad their crimes.

So much for the County trash pickup. Trash truck not at Chelsa this PM so probably not at Deputy during AM. No notice of non-availability etc. Rumpke may have been expensive but their truck and driver showed up. County collected $50 for a years worth of service so will taxpayers who paid for service now receive a refund and seek trash pickup elsewhere? How much trash will be thrown on the side of the road? What happens now with the nice shiny new truck?

Agree with Col. Bogey,
I've spent most of my professional life as a grant writer and liquor establishments were always barred from applying. Not to mention, this is a 2nd occupation for the owner of the liquor store on Walnut. She is a nurse and her husband has a good paying job, as well. What the hell is the criteria to apply, Be Bob's friend.

Also, it is my understanding that Mindy McGee doesn't live in the City of Madison. How can she then be our Deputy Mayor?
