  1. Former Clemson and Oregon State QB DJ Uiagalelei …….. He’s transferring to his THIRD College? Shouldn’t that be a red flag to someone?

    Hey Ron, Satanism IS a Religion, so therefore, Trump did the only thing he COULD do, recognize the Satanic Temple as a protected religion. I am a Christian and always will be and, isn’t this Country built on FREEDOM of Religion? Also, didn’t someone in Congress take their Oath while resting their Hand on a Quran? Just saying…… pick your battles, this shouldn’t be one.

  2. Mark Mustian was the only City Commissioner who voted against the $100,000 deferred compensation package the other commissioners voted for themselves.

  3. The Charter review committee reads like a list of usual suspects. This ought to be a complete grift. The song says I’m supposed to enjoy the ride when going to hell in a bucket… this ride sucks.
