Unnamed Person Wants a Piece of County Land

The name is secret; the deed isn't!  
It is on the agenda next Tuesday.


The Hound of Hell is Sniffing Out Its Prey!

New Love Nest Reported!!!



Our Romance Editor, Bertha Higginbottom, reports that someone is tapping a high ranking public official at the Arbovale Annex.  

Remember, that this is the new path to economic security and early retirement.  Sex is the largest cash crop in the county. 

The county has just paid off $75,000 for one legal case and Bertha says that the settlements now-a-days are running easily into the 6 figure sum ($$$,$$$)  She says that there have been about six newly rich women who have settled with the county.

It seems that Arbovale has pushed Stillwell Park and the Buckeye bridge out of their former positions.


$200 per hour wasn't enough!!!
