Aldermen votes, CityCouncil, Crematorium

Why did Aldermen change their votes and minds?

Next City Council Meeting January 17, 2012 with public comment on the record: Sign up to speak by 6:45 p.m.

Posted by staff7:35 p.m. Jan 13, 2012.

These two Alderman, against Mr. Jensen’s Crematorium project since the issue came to the Planning Board nearly one year ago, suddenly had a change of heart at the Jan. 3 meeting: P. Carl Brown, 7th Ward Alderman and Tyler D. Tall Sr., 5th Ward Alderman. Alderman Glenn E. Davidson, 1st Ward, once again abstained.

No one’s stepping up to say what changed their mind to vote from nay to aye, placing Mr. Jensen’s special use permit request on the agenda for second reading Jan. 17, 2012.

But rumor has it that Police Lt. Dave Skelly, who championed his friend and neighbor last spring to the City Council, was more successful this December.

Small Town
When you do not stand up
when government and power
retaliate to shut you up,
when you cower under cover,
never speaking up,
you become the attacker,
you give government power
to attack another and another.
You are attacked because
the person before you cowered.
The next is attacked because of you.
So on your feet!
Do not whisper,
do not hide pretending
you do not see,
speak out, loud, here, now,
like you live in America,
before it’s gone.

Thank Nelson Mandela
for his incredible work
for peace and justice
Nelson Mandala image from Care2 make a difference
Nelson Mandela is a world leader and example of peace and justice.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner fought apartheid and campaigned against the racist policies of the South African government despite strong opposition. No matter how many times he was discouraged from his mission or jailed for political offenses, Mandela never gave up his fight for justice.
Mandela wasn't afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what he believed. In his efforts, he has changed the world for the better. And his passionate conviction has inspired many others to do the same.
For today's Daily Action, pledge to do what you can in your own life to promote tolerance and justice. Visit Care2 make a difference

Most street-wise people know not to be a victim of crime. Never flash a large roll of cash or open a very full wallet in plain site. Avoid bragging about your Mercedes out in the lot. Avoid certain neighborhoods at all times. Avoid others at peak crime hours. Don’t pick fights in bars. Carry a real police whistle. Carry pepper spray.
These hints aren’t anything new. Criminals needn’t be the brightest bulbs in the lamp to victimize people successfully. Following the hints buys you an edge.
Protecting yourself is frequently straight-forward. Protecting property may be a tad more complex. But, again, basic cautions are simple, particularly when protecting, say, your house.
