I did not post any thing on this topic, nit interested on people trying to verbaly change some ones mind,vote etc.O wpi;d of thouht some would of been done long ago, if there not so be it. Some people who posted on this topic, have tried to do the same, your negative your this your that, what ever, WHILE THEY CONT. to try to take or be neg. them selves. I guess everything is suppose to be RAINBOWS & 1200.00 puppies, we all know this town is so much more then what the Mayors slogan has been forced on us. "Little town with a big heart" as in any trown that can be true, but don't yell at some one to point out what is a slippery slope, keep posting, it is free speech, as one said don't wasre the muscles in your fingers, are the muscles next to the tendons? just where are those muscles?
