Along with the overbearing arrogance of AT&T and their attorney something else stinks here.
How is it that the zoning inspector says he knows nothing of the certified letters the Salems sent.And how does he know there were no objections from other residents ?Did he go door to door asking ?Were residents even aware of this tower going up ?
I've seen these behind the barn deals made with trustees in other small communities and this is sure looking exactly like that.
The trustees might have had their exe.session meeting with the Salems attorney present but that means little to nothing.
I wish the Salems luck in their fight but the cards certainly favor the big money and schlock lawyers

Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to remember doing almost exactly this plan back in 1980
There was a guy named Bin Laden who along with his friends and followers were fighting the Russians after they invaded Afganistan.
The U.S.decided to arm and train Osama and his pals to help them send the Russians packing for home.With American money,advisors and weapons the plan was a booming success.
To repay America for helping rid Afganistan of the brutal murdering Red Army Osama and his commrads blew up our embassies in Africa,drove a boat load of high explosives into the American vessel the Cole while she was at anchor
After that for good measure flew a pair of commercial jets with innocent people aborad into the World Trade Center,another civilian aircraft into the Pentagon While on another flight brave Americans managed to bring a plane down that was headed for either the Whitehouse or the Capitol building.
And now we're going to arm and train the Syrian rebels.Are the enemies of my enemy my friends ?Perhaps our leaders should ask that question to the family members of theUSS Cole sailors and the family members of the 9/11 victimsJust a thought........

Seems to me you union folks want it both ways.Now I have absolutely nothing against unions.My father was a union plumber and made a very good living but that was back in the 50s,60s and 70s.
Where I live we had a major housing boom back in the 90s.Most of the folks building those new homes were G.M.and Delphi union workers but Rea you know what I never once saw during those great boom years ?
I never saw a union mason,plumber,plasterer,carpenter or any tradesperson building any of those homes.Why is that ?Was it because those G.M.and Delphi workers didn't want to pay union wages for their new home ?
What I did see were general contractors who hired cheap half assed labor to build those homes and believe me the quality of their work showed big time !!!
Had those union folks hired their union bros and sisters to build those new homes for them it would have cost more but they wouldn't have had anywhere near the problems they hadCracked basements,leaking plumbing,uneven walls ect the list of problems goes on and on
I mean isn't a union tradespersons skill worth as much as a G.M.or Delphi worker and aren't they entitled to make the same good living wage ?Sure seems to me they are !!!So you see Rea I have nothing at all against unions

Well Rea it might surprise you to know that your Chevy,Ford and Chrysler have more offshore junk parts in them than the Honda and Toyota you advise us against buying.Same with those beloved Harleys.
In fact nobody waves old glory more than Harley Davidson but go into any H.D. botique store and all you're going to find in the way of parts are way over priced cheaply made expensive foreign junk.Most of their leather goods and so called motor clothes are made in China.
All of the shiny chromed plastic dress up parts for your bike are not made in America.They're made in China and Taiwan but don't take my word for it go check it out.I can't begin to tell you how tough it is for me to find domestic goods to use in my fab shop.I can't even buy a wire brush made in this country unless I order one on line.
You want to bring back Made in America ?.....Keep your ass out of wal-mart,super k,target ect and demand these major retailers stock their stores with domestic goods and don't bitch and throw a fit when you have to pay a little more.
The American consumer wants cheap cheap cheap and doesn't care where it's made as long as they can save a dime.

These are adults ?And we wonder what's wrong with the kids !!!!!!??
Good Lord I hope these idiots don't have children !!

Sitting on her ass eating and watching tv with no clue and worse yet no concern for where her kids were.
Again another excellent reason to bring back the orphanage system.Guaranteed those kids don't stand a chance living in that home.
Who wants to bet that the mother is on public assistance and very little of what she recieves goes towards the care of her children ?There's absolutely no excuse for these kids to be filthy and playing in the street !
And this cow has the nerve to blame her kids for going to jail.She's a totally unfit mother and has no right to govt.benfits or those poor kids.And where in the hell is the father ?Another deadbeat ? Round his sorry ass up and jail him to if he hasn't paid support or done anything to help rraise his kids.
Iam so sick of these lazy scumbags who have one child after another just for a bump on a welfare check.Take these lazy slobs off of the govt.tit and use the money saved to restart the orphanage system so these poor innocent kids have a chance to live in a clean,safe home and get an education.
Call me what you will but rewarding these worthless lazy baby making machines and their sperm donors does nothing but create another generation of govt dependents.
This problem will end when we start making these people take responsibility for themselves and you don't do that by giving them more and more for doing nothing but laying around and getting knocked upENOUGH ALREADY !!!!
