as long as we have College Bound, Home Bound, a legal aid clinic, a kickass golf course clubhouse, baseball fields springing up like weeds, a Mayor and council members who just got raises, an amphitheater at Wolf Lake, Festival of the Lakes, etc. we can't possibly be broke. The Mayor is a fiscal conservative for Gods sake. This must be an accounting snafu.

I must be missing something somewhere. For years, I thought the "Mayor's" and the "City Councilmens'" boat money was to be spent strictly on infrastructure. The casino was too unpredictable a revenue source upon which to counted for such frivolities as salaries, tax relief, city agencies, and ego-building parties. On top of that, Hammond's infrastructure needs were so great that if attended to, most if not all of the money would be spoken for. Now, it seems every little want or need falls under the umbrella of "infrastructure" and is fair game for gambling money. I'm sure glad you all have wizards like the Oracle, the Jailman, and Sparks to explain this sort of thing to we who are easily confused.

Just imagine if Jr. wasn't a fiscal conservative and the shape we would be in then.
