Roll Back of "Modernization"

Last week we got the first information that the "Roll Back" is beginning. Vanderburg County will begin a pilot project Dec. 15.

A Field Guide for the Rest of Your Life

"But you were always a good man of business, Jacob," faltered Scrooge, who now began to apply this to himself.
"Business!" cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!"

Who's Your Boss

Do you know who your boss is? The growth of the infomal economy of the underworld of the construction industry brings about more and more cases of workers who do not know who their boss is, especially at the levels of small subcontractors who occupy the bottom rungs of the pyramid. These workers are often paid in cash, if at all, and are often unaware of who issues the check, often delivered to an itermediate agent posing as a subcontrator who cashes it and distributes the cash to the individual workers after giving himself a generous commission.
