Heim, please quit sounding like an ignorant know-it-all. God, GOD in His Torah, speaks PLAINLY against sexual perversion and it's consequences, and Jesus IS God in the Flesh as part of the Triune God. All this type of story does is bring out all the imbeciles and jerks with a anti-Christian verbiage meant to deride Christians and Jews. Any Church that supports this aberrant lifestyle, in my book has ceased it's right to be called Christian. God called it sin in the Old Testament and God is NEVER changing. God is the same then today and forever. So The Gay lifestyle is sin today and will be sin forever. It was wrong then, it is wrong now, and will be wrong until the end of time.
God is Love, we are to love our fellow man but NEVER to allow their sin to enter our lives. our Churches.
Chas, please read the Bible before you make blanket statements about "God's Love" You evidently have no clue.
Why are there two different costs? if you have 162 spaces at 9x 18 is +26000 sq ft x extra for handicap and 24'wide driving aisles you could be looking at + 50000 sq ft, plus foundation costs plus engineering for sliding expansion, Engineering for min 1000 lb rolling loads, plus walls and ramps and if you estimate construction costs @ Min $50.00 per Sq Ft wich is pretty light, you look at 2 million 5 hundred thousand.
If Robert Hayter told you this a rethink all the way around needs be done.
I do not like to knock professionals but cases like this It would be best to talk to other engineering firms who KNOW structures. especially parking garages that also have ventilation issues, drainage issues and visual issues.
Mr Heim, if you could get away from the emulation of Dusty Rhoads and his wingnut mantra, then issue a proper and thought out response you might have points of respect.
The educational requirements for North Dakota are different from say the educational requirements of the State of New York, or North Carolina different from Wyoming. You cannot at any time make a common educational edict nationwide. Gates and Gates need to stay out of the education by reason of their socialist Orwellian attitudes. The basics of education K-12 being the 3R's which has been the core of education, then the state and local school boards should be the ones who call the curriculum needs for contemporary life also recognizing the particular states needs either in the agronomy world, geo physics world. When one calls for a standardized testing for all students and you are required to mainstream learning challenged children these tests are so seriously skewed, they mean nothing. Learning challenged scores will bring the overall scores down and there develops a serious inequity .
Shooting oneself in the hand demonstrating a dumb action IS stupidity. Stupidity doesn't limit itself to non-NRA members. Good Grief Mr Heims stupidity comes in all forms and in all areas of the IQ spectrum.
As for preventing a crime? I doubt anyone would aver that point. In some cases It might, but in some cases not. Now in my case many years ago with a home invasion at 1 am in the morning , I wound up with 22 +stitches in my head but I protected my wife,[ it was a wild tussle from the upstairs bedroom , down the stairs to the kitchen where he finally broke a dining chair over my head and out the door he went ] and although the perpetrator got away, the police took 15 minutes to get there and the trail was cold. Now had I a gun [and I do know how to use one] That person would not have gotten away . I just never saw the need to have one. I do rethink that once in a awhile.
You can build all the facilities you want or need BUT when you do not have adequate personel and PROPERLY trained staff, all you do is build warehouses for the mentally disabled. Why was Dix closed? staffing problems, antiquated facility [ which could have been upgraded] and IT Became a warehouse for broken minds, because of few QUALIFIED Doctors and Nurses, ie: Psychologists, Psychiatrists, inadequate research into many brain malfunctions,
A major rethink on the pathway to bringing help, REAL help to and for the mentally disabled,should be the first. Develop a master plan, quickly, don't throw money at a nonexistent solution.
They may be right in this case ---to a point. But Judgeships are for sale. There is a serious problem with unvetted judge candidates getting elected, because the money was there to do so.
I am all for village volunteering, and discounts where one can get them. That circle USED to be the bright spot as one approached the village from 15/501, as I have heard it, NCDOT has all but denuded it. But within the village the charm can still remain, but it's the volunteers who strengthen the village. the these volunteers have done a great job over the years.
Whether the courts cleared them or not , common sense tells you stupidity was involved. Now are YOU telling me that these cases are on the high percentage for those who own guns? If the percentage is low then you wish to penalize the majority for the minority? How about knife? how about ball bats? or any heavy stick.
Good Grief RKatrin, little bent out are we? Pinehurst is what Pinehurst is. Now as for the volunteers and their work, I commend them for the zeal and pride, now why can't the greenhouses work with them and offer discounts on flowers and plants or why cant some of the volunteers do their own startings, Just asking.
