Send the Mayor of New Orleans to Haiti

January 15, 2010

Didn’t he tell us that he knows what should have been done?  Listening to recent news reports, it looks like the civil unrest in Haiti – looting, folks complaining about the lack of aid or slow response – has all the characteristics of Katrini.  Okay, Obama – let’s see you do your stuff!!!!

    For The Elegance of the Hawn. . .

    $340,000.00 on an appraised “value” of $89,270.00 is way too much for such elegance as this! This sounds like a Bell County Burrows Deal!

    This is what the Taxpayer’s of Temple paid $340,000.00 for? PLUS a
    realtor’s commission of about 6% on the famous Hawn Hotel…..AND,
    it looks like ol’ Dorothy G. Cordero only owed $7,538.79 in ?back?
    taxes…!

    Was she about to lose the Hawn Hotel to Bell County and the
    Taxpayer’s of Temple rescued her with the help of Mayor Jones, III
    and the Temple City Council? Six years in back taxes and the City,
    with the help of the honest Sheriff, could have gotten it for the back
    Taxes? What kind of deal is this? I guess the Council, would
    rather pay $367,938.79 including the realtor’s commission, instead
    of just the back taxes.

    Bell County really missed their chance at a cheap buy on a
    nine (9) story jail. No sense in being frugal with the taxpayer’s money is there???

    NOTE: The $20,400.00 in a Realtor’s commission might have been
    paid by the owner, owner to be, or what ever kind of deal the “Council” made on this deal. Knowing the generosity of the “Council” with our money we may have eaten the taxes also.

    Shazam,
