You Want a Job, Don't You?

"You want a job, don't you?"

"It's all word-association and where you come from, Mr. Cain. You're from Happy Valley; I HAVE a Happy Valley. You say poTAto, I say Palo Alto; you say toMAtoe, I say toMAHto.You say Paterno, I say Patino; your team is Seduce-U I think Sandusky; you say McQuery, I say Ceder Point. Let's talk about overtime. Or we'll cross that Tressel when we come to it."

What Happened?

If you're wondering what happened to the Cursing Mommy column scheduled for today, please don't worry--"How to Make a Festive Holiday Centerpiece Out of Used Coffee Filters and Then Throw It at Your Fucking Husband's Head" will definitely appear next week.

Strictly Local

I had a hard time trying to figure when the Princeton High School levies would fully-hit our tax bills.  Google was no help.  Nor was a call to the Board of Education earlier in the week. I finally went to the Board of Education and while I was waiting for someone from the treasurer's office to come out I flipped through a scrapbook of articles on Princeton, mainly sports.  I came across the following, copied it in my own handwriting and told the receptionist that I didn't need to speak to anyone else.  My notes:

On Election Day

From February 19, 2010 Enquirer

$120 million, 37-yr bond issue @ 3.52 mills would pay for a new high school and middle school. A related 1.45 mill permanent improvement levy would pay for capital improvements. The owner of a $100,000 home would pay an additional $44.40 a year beginning in January, 2011. [$300,000 = $133.20]

When the levy begins, and beginning in 2013, that would grow to $149.28 for a $100,000 home [$447.84 for a $300,000 home]
