Last week LSU football Heisman Trophy (2011) finalist Tyrann Mathieu was kicked off the LSU football team for “the latest of several failed drug tests” since his arrival at LSU in 2010 (Click Here). This summer LSU is ranked #1 in College Football’s pre-season poll.
Meanwhile…the University of Colorado released the results of their study last week confirming…
“Nearly three-quarters of teens in two metro-area substance-abuse treatment programs said they have used medical marijuana bought or grown for someone else, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.” (ECT hat tip to Denver Post – Click Here)
The U of Colorado study continued…
“Only one of the 122 teens in the study who admitted to using medical marijuana was an approved patient. The findings hint that the leaking of medical marijuana from the legal state system to illegal users may be common in Colorado.”
Eagle County parents outraged that your Eagle County Commissioners have allowed these so called “medical marijuana – pot shops” to take root in our Community will have their voices heard at the election on Tuesday, November 6th 2012 – when the incumbent County Commissioner – Jon Stavney who is personally responsible for violating Federal Drug Law allowing these Pot Shops – tries to get himself re-elected.
Does this seem right to you?
Last year at this time your Eagle County School District Board members where busy promoting a proposed permanent Property Tax increase – that was known as 3B on last November’s Ballot. It failed.
To many of Eagle County’s families were struggling (last year – and today) trying to make ‘ends meet’ and the last thing families fearing home foreclosure needed was another confiscatory property tax increase levied against their residence.
So? So last week – one of your elected School Board members – had their own home enter Eagle County’s home foreclosure process.
Why would a reasonable Board member promote a permanent property tax increase when they themselves were also struggling to hang on to their own home?
Elected Board members “work for us” the taxpayer. We (rightly) expect them to do the best job they can with the tax money given, no more no less.
What kind of School Board attitude does this kind of conduct represent? “Do as I say, not as I do!”
No reasonable person (nor the ECT folks) have any wish to publically badger this Board member, it simply doesn’t help. Our intent is to expose this high questionable behavior/attitude that seems to exist on our elected School Board…
The ECT won’t print this Board members name in this story – if you want to know who this Board member is ECT readers have to deliberately (Click Here) Eagle County public record – Foreclosure number 12-318 is where you should look.
