      Most band uniforms are used for 10 to 12 years. It will cost about $90,000 to buy the new uniforms. Most of the money will come from fundraisers …
      Did you donate to any of the fundraisers? If not, you don’t really have a say in this. Band Festival has been a casual affair for years.

Besides, her parents and family have continually asked that his status as an immigrant not be a factor in his trial and in media. Decent people accepted this but you low-life idiots can’t do that because it isn’t her death that upsets you, it is the nationality of her killer. Go back to playing with yourself and stfu.

      Reposting – because Mollie would not tolerate hypocrisy either.
      No.
      No, no and no.
      Especially for those of you who did not know her in life, you do not get to usurp Mollie and her legacy for your racist, false narrative now that she is no longer with us. We hereby reclaim our Mollie.
      Mollie was a young, intelligent, caring woman with a ready smile and a compassionate heart. So many across the state of Iowa and the entire country embraced her, and us, as we all searched and hoped for her safe return. It was not to be. Mollie was killed, and a man has been arrested and charged with her murder. Yes, that man is an immigrant to this country, with uncertainty as to his legal status. But it matters not. He could have been a citizen, born in this country; he could have been an older, white man from anywhere; he could have been a man from Mollie’s world. He is a man, whose path in life crossed that of Mollie’s life, with tragic results. He is a man who felt entitled to impose himself on Mollie’s life, without consequence. He is a man who, because of his sense of male entitlement, refused to allow Mollie the right to reject his advances – the right to her own autonomy. Mollie was murdered because a man denied her right to say no.
      Our national discussion needs to be about the violence committed in our society, mostly by men, as seen by these grim statistics from the FBI:
      • 89.5% of murders are committed by men.
      • 98.9% of forcible rapes are committed by men.
      • 80% of violence against families and children is committed by men.
      • 85% of intimate partner violence is committed by men.
      We must be willing to address the way we raise our boys and young men, so that violence is not a part of their response to this world. Like the recent murders of the Colorado family or the similarly tragic homicide of Kate Steinle, Mollie’s death is further example of the toxic masculinity that exists in our society.
      Mollie’s murder is truly tragic and horrifically painful for all of us who knew and loved her, the extinguishing of a treasured spirit much too soon. It is not your right to exacerbate this grievous act by hijacking Mollie and all she believed with your racist fear-mongering. You do not get to use her murder to inaccurately promote your “permanently separated” hyperbole. You do not have permission to callously use this tragedy to demonize an entire population for the acts of one man.
      No. We reclaim our Mollie.

    Let me see if I have this right. A year ago a rogue cop killed a convicted felon while arresting him as he tried to commit another felony. Then a whole bunch of criminals, burned and looted several areas of the twin cities. Now, this next week they are going to have a three day celebration of the first anniversary of these events. Is this nuts or what?

      Prior to being Post Master, DeJoy violated campaign finance laws by pressuring his

      All of the post office’s problems are a direct result of the rich scum Trump put in charge of it, whose first act was to order the destruction of millions of dollars of rapid mail-sorting machines. The greedy rich have been trying to get rid of the post office for years, so they put a major stockholder of FedEx in charge of it, to destroy it. If they’d actually read the Constitution they’d know that they can’t get rid of it, because it was created by the founding fathers, and put into the Constitution.

          State patrol, you do have that kind of influence. Don’t you think it is wise to get expert advice when developing policy? Do you think if the state or federal gov’t decides to create policy that will affect policing they should ask for input from police or the state patrol first? Or if they are going to change laws that concern medical care they should consult medical practitioners or care workers? Unfortunately our legislators don’t often do that and if you just look around, you will see how well that has worked out.

        You are not any smarter, try reading the flag code before you comment. Section 8 of the US Flag Code states it is a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

        There is what your party does. “You didn’t give them so it must be a lie, Democrats(Communists always put in some sort of slur for Republicans) always lie”, then a triad about a bunch of BS calling other party/philosophy racist,bigot,white supremacist, and several other names.

    Effective immediately the Shell Rock River Greenbelt roads will be open to authorized vehicle traffic. Authorized vehicle traffic are those vehicles that have a valid license plate issued by a state department of transportation. All other motorized vehicles are prohibited i.e. ATV’s, UTV’s and Golf Carts. A reminder to vehicle users that the roads are a shared roadway with hikers, bicyclists and horses and the posted speed limit is 15 mph. All vehicles are required to stay on the main roadway. The roads will remain open, subject to exceptional weather conditions, until late November and reopen next spring in late May.

    Really hard to believe that you and the RepublicQn leadership (ha ha ha) still back a loser. The only reason Biden got elected is that his opponent was trump. Put anyone else up against Biden, they win. But the leadership (ha ha ha) decided they would stake their futures on a washed-up ex-television reality show host who lost in 2020 by more votes than he won by against a woman who most everyone hated in 2016. His presidency was a novelty for a while, but once the mainstream Republicans realized he was a bad President, they left him. That is what makes the recent revival of trump love by McCarthy and others so puzzling. He is a loser. His political career is over and he will never be President again nor will any of his spawn. It was like electing the senior class idiot as President of the class or Homecoming King and wishing you could do a re-vote because it became quite evident what a dumb idea that was. I believe they think that they need that 10% of the population who want him back as President to help them overcome the popularity that has now moved back to the other side – the Democrats.

      House Republicans ousted Rep. Liz Cheney as House GOP conference chair and set the stage for her to be replaced with someone less keen on challenging former President Trump’s stolen election claims and lingering grip on the party.

    How’s that there election fraud AUDIT going in AZ? Heard the DNC sent 73 crooked lawyers down there to stop the Audit? Why stop it ? Let the truth come out ! If the country is ever again to get an honest election please let this continue – I don’t want a hostile foreign country picking our elected officials especially the president.

      Your beliefs are like any given religion. Your hypothesis of a “stolen election” exists with no proof but yet your faith forces you to believe. I think you think the election is stolen because in your mind, your side was entitled to win it. When that didn’t happen – and Trump lost, even while many GOP won – you feel like it was stolen and created this fantasy, with the help of the professional liars and conspirators lurking in the depths of the internet. You parrot their talking points with no original thought of your own, as you cling to this dream of overturning this very fair election. I encourage you to step out of the darkness that engulfs your existence and seek rationality.

No one with any sanity takes this “audit” with any seriousness. Great for fundraising from the knuckledraggers, though – if they have a dollar to spare, that is.
