Chris, I get it. You caught Mark admitting he did some thing wrong. His "self described behavior" was 25+ years ago. Just curious as to how well you know Mark and if you are aware of recent similar behavior. So bludgeon away as judge and jury. It doesn't appear to me that Mark used the Castle Doctrine as a defense. It doesn't appear to me that Mark even tried to defend what he did. If as Mark said, he reported it to the police and there were no legal implication as a result of his actions and some thing positive was learned as a result. Again I will suggest that it is possible that all of us have acted improperly and in hind sight regretted those actions. I for one am glad to hear Mark feels that he learned an important lesson, maybe you should be glad as well. Wouldn't it be a much better world if we all learned from our mistakes.

Mark H. gave as an example, an apparent occurrence in his past, possibly when he was about 22 years old and about 25+ years ago. According to Mark, he had a brain fart and got out of his vehicle to confront the driver of a logging truck. In retrospect, Mark states he wishes he had not done that. My take away from this is Mark is encouraging others to learn from his mistake. I am sure none of us have ever done something rash and in hind sight not so smart. As we reflected on the incident we regretted that it happened and thought about what we could have done differently. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Scott, I would tend to agree that it may be probable that as a rule business don't add new workers for TC events. However the added hours for hotel staff, the added shifts for hospitality workers may certainly add up. They create added income for those workers, many I would guess not living the "high life". It would be interesting if it were possible to see how many job equivalents those extra add hours create. I am guessing some of that added income finds it way back into the local economy.

Rhys, Add this incident to all that is currently stirring a controversy in our tony little burgh and you might finally have the foundation for the film you have been talking about making.

Why any one would like Matt C comment telling Jerry to shut up is beyond me. You all are free to chime in and tell us what it is that Jerry said to set you off. Or you can hide and like Matt C comment. Should we tell Matt or any one else that posts to "shut up". Wow, that is grown up


Dan Kuechenmeister 2 weeks, 3 days ago on Jim Webster: Green needs support

Good stuff Mark. What I find interesting is that for the most part ( I try not to say never and always)those of us who would be considered deniers have not spoken out against alternatives to carbon based energy sources. We have indicated we are in favor of those alternatives. We have spoken out against the fervor of those that want to dump carbon based energy for alternatives regardless of the cost. Regardless of the reason, one of those who posts has said that currently it is too expensive for him to install solar energy. One of those who posts and is favor of alternative energy burns wood to heat his home. Not that green from my perspective. One of the so called deniers ( and probably considered right wing) has investigated solar energy and just might install it, if the cost is right, no pun intended. Higher energy costs will impact the middle and less then middle class. Higher energy costs will impact the retirees on fixed income as, with the blessing of the FED zero interest rate policy, they basically have no income. Alternative energy sources will become the norm when the cost makes sense and there is a profit to be made. Who knows, those evil oil companies may be working on that already. Those of you who wish to, are free to bludgeon we so called deniers, but you cannot accuse us of being against alternative sources of energy.

Oh those darn retirees. Especially those that, because they have the time, volunteer for so many of the wonderful organizations that help folks and this community. And I agree with Pat W. If a hanger on is a dingleberry, ish.
