Proud of Effort
I am writing this letter of thanks to all of my supporters during this recent election.
I especially want to thank my family, my wife Janet and all who helped during the campaign. I had hoped for a positive outcome, but am proud of the efforts of all my friends.
I also wish to congratulate Dr. Coleman, who is a real gentleman and very professional. I wish him success in the difficult position of Geauga County Coroner.
I will continue to work in my practice in Middlefield and will continue to serve the public as a Middlefield Township trustee and am honored to serve in this position.
Dr. Robert Evans
The "fiscal cliff" is a phony issue. Why? The U.S. government is not a household. Because it is a sovereign government, the U.S. can create as much money as it needs (chooses) to spend. Period.
Some other sovereign governments are the UK and Japan.
European countries under the Euro are different; they are like separate states of the U.S. or households because they cannot create their own currencies. If you doubt this, look up the website of New Economic Perspectives and Stephanie Kelton and Warren Mosler.
For a good historical discussion on the development of public and private currencies and how they relate to booms and busts see the recent paper about the "Chicago Plan"by IMF economists Benes and Kumhof.
The truth is out there.
On behalf of the Russell Township Road Department, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your support of our road levy.
We take great pride in the work we do and renewal of this levy will allow us to continue regular maintenance of the roadways, and to continue the replacement and upgrade of old equipment. This will allow us to do the best job possible for our residents.

Never, Ever Again
We Americans do not deserve an 18-month election as horrible as this year's.
We"ve been subjected to an unending media succession of lies, exaggerations, falsifications, contrived pictures, phrases taken out of context. Is this what we expect from those we"re electing and those we turned down?
We look at Canada's six weeks of campaigning enviously. Why not here?
In a time of great need by millions of our fellow Americans "and those around the world "we waste private and public money on this charade.
Fellow Americans, never again!
