Sheriff Leis gets his fishing boat

Hamilton County is safe once again. After a dark, dreary two weeks where Hamilton County citizens were deeply concerned about being invaded by Kentucky or a foreign country via the Ohio River, Sheriff Leis has saved us from this potential disaster. Thanks to the Sheriff's power of persuasion, David Pepper and Todd Portune voted to allow Leis to get his $99,000 fishing boat. If there is anything that will deter a foreign invasion against our county, the site of Simon Leis on a fishing boat is it.

We applaud Sheriff Leis and Commissioners Pepper and Portune for this wise use of taxpayer dollars. If there is anything Hamilton County needs, it's another boat. We trust Pepper, Portune, and Leis when they say a fishing boat is the best possible use of this money for Hamilton County.

We condemn County Commissioner Greg Hartmann for voting against this addition to the Simon Leis Navy. If we didn't get this fishing boat Leis would only have 4 boats to patrol the Ohio River and that would be a disaster! We are putting Hartmann on warning. He is not to question Leis again. When Leis says he wants something, he should get it no questions asked.

You know, the Greeks invented fishing boats.

How soon before taxpayer dollars are spent to paint Simon Leis' name all over it? Maybe they'll name it the USS Simon.

Pepper is running for Auditor, a position which he is totally unqualified to hold.

But he says he's going to be a "watchdog" for taxpayer funds. Is this Pepper's example of being a watchdog?

I need a fleet of bass boats to patrol the Mill Creek. Can I get your support for an increase in the hotel/motel tax to help pay for a Sharonville Armada?

Why didn't David Pepper just take out his check book and buy the boat instead of making the taxpayers do it?

If Kentucky owns the river, why didn't Kentucky pay for the boat and the patrols. Why does Simple Simon have to do it? Plus, we're laying off deputies so who the hell are we going to get to run the boat - special deputies for free? Hardly! I think I'm going to move to Kentucky. The tax and spend Republicans are out of control. Living, like eggs, are cheaper in Kentucky...or something like that.
