But the Union is doing what their members expect them to do - that is file a grievance. If the thrust of that grievance is that the union wasn't notified, fine. The county can say sorry, and try not to let it hapen again. Grievance resolved.
If the grievence is demanding that only union employees be used to deal with this crisis - then they can go pound ......(asphalt).
The engineer and sheriff are doing what is in the best interest of the public. Thanks!

Imagine the costs to the state/county/municipal governments if they were held liable for damages caused by potholes.

@Todd,Wanted to reinforce kurtw's comments about inducing readers to do research for themselves.
Opinion based on facts is interesting, opinion based on political bias isn't.

@eivo,Is your response an opinion, a fact, or what.
Are you able to give a serious response?

George Will's column today says that the Tea Party was thwarted by the IRS because their 501c4 Social Welfare applications were delayed.
According to the Inspector General for Treasury, "...social welfare organizations, may file an application but are not required to do so”. (Inspector General's report 5/17/2013)
If an organization is not required to file an application, any delay in approval is inconsequential, in short the organization is not thwarted.
As far as the 501c4 "scandal" is concerned, there has been no foul.

Fact:The first two sentences of the Inspector General's report:
“Organizations, such as charities, seeking Federal tax exemption are required to file an application with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Other organizations, such as social welfare organizations, may file an application but are not required to do so”. - TREASURY INSPECTOR GENERAL FOR TAX ADMINISTRATION May 17 2013.
Applications for 501(c)(4) (know as Social Welfare) status were not required to be filed. Applicants (such as the Tea Party Patriots) were not prevented or "thwarted" from doing anything.
This is the simple reason that this scandal is over nothing!

Watched the hearing expecting to see that the Republican majority were finally able to establish something. But no.The only thing I learned was that the congressional committee is powerless in the face of one woman who asserts her constitutional rights.What I can't understand is, IF the committee wants to find her in contempt, why haven't they started that process in the last nine months.

Fine example of ignorance and disrespect. True enough, a person can have a posthumous marriage in France (and China and some other countries).
However you probably don't know the laws that permit, nor the regulations attached to that.
Start with this reference before you try to equate SSM with posthumous marriage.
Posthumous marriage has been officially recognized for the last sixty years, without the collapse of society.
