Good football weekend.

Michigan and the Lions both won with little to no drama.

I agree that is the case in most municipalities.

I wonder if Gary ever got to the bottom of who laced his bean field with barbed wire and Tee posts and screwed up his combine.  Never heard squat about that.

London reminds me of Summerfield Township in the way that a select group of people can get away with just about anything and not be held accountable for it.

I think that plays out in all rural jurisdictions.

The 'big wheels' in these townships are in fact really small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.

Yes there was plenty of lawlessness going on under past boards. Gary ran on an "I'll give it my best shot to straighten this up " philosophy. Without any money in the budget it's harder than most would know. Gary has done a lot to at least point the twp in the right direction. There is a small group of malcontents that are used to getting away with anything they want that are opposing everything that Gary does. Mostly because it affects their own little scam they have been running in the township for years. It's definitely a power struggle between lawfulness and lawlessness.

On my weekly drive through London Township I always see plenty of blight enforcement opportunities.

It would be a better place to live if someone did just that!

I'm not really sure about where London Township is actually.  I presume around Milan Dragway but again, not sure.  I do know that Gary inhereted a mess and usually when straightening out a mess, some citizens get butt hurt because being a mess isn't always a mess to some.

Like I said, a thankless job that pays little.

I remember back when we moved here (32 years ago), we looked at homes in Bedford and I said to CL, Bedford isn't for me and it seems to be getting worse, not better.

They got spanked but I knew they would.  I was surprised they even scored.  Michigan State needs to stick to hoops.  Their football program sucks big time.

Bedford twp has their share too.  And we have 3 ordinance officers who ride around all day.  Word is they won't cite anyone unless there is a complaint.  How stupid.  We don't need them riding around then.  Fire 2 of them and have one sit in township hall waiting for complaints to roll in/

I wonder whatever happened to Tea Party Patriot?

I'm sure he is looking forward to basketball.

That was an absolute domination. 

It could be a long rest of the season for the Spartans without Felton.
