A little good news goes bad in a hurry

It looks like we were a little premature in our excitement over news that terrorists in Nigeria were releasing more than 200 schoolgirls who they kidnapped in April.

It turns out that not only did the Boko Haram Islamist militants not free the girls but also kidnapped even more children.

It appears you can’t teach an old terrorist new tricks.

Bad decisions

What makes people make such bad decisions?

We’re talking about a lot of bad decisions made by local residents (as well as nationwide and even worldwide).

What makes someone determine that beating a child will help convince him to be a better student?

What possibly could have gone on in the Buckeye father’s past to make him think this was a good decision?

Honest Obama could cost Dems U.S. Senate seats

Cary HinesObama may say his feelings aren’t hurt when his fellow Democrats running for office avoid him like Ebola, but I have a hard time believing that when he makes comments such as, “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress. So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them — I said, ‘You do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.’”

Ebola and other infectious diseases

Fear of Ebola is a faster growing disease than Ebola itself. Airline stocks fell as a result of an infected nurse from Dallas flying across country possibly infecting hundreds on each of her flights.

People are afraid of going to the hospital, especially in Dallas where two nurses were infected while treating an Ebola patient who later died.

I will not threaten to kill I will not threaten to kill

Looks like them Buckeye boys in blue are in a heap of trouble.

And thanks to Officer I Will Kill You, there’s a good chance the whole lot of ’em will be punished with body cameras.

Which is ironic, actually, considering the man the police officer threatened to kill more than once recorded the entire episode on his phone, making the body camera, in this case anyway, unnecessary.

Advertising is key to staying in business

The Business Briefcase is undoubtedly one of the most well-read features in the West Valley View.

Readers love it because they find out about all the new businesses coming to the West Valley in one handy dandy column.

Businesses love it because, well, it’s basically a free ad.

Fry’s says Litchfield ready for more retail

Since the beginning of the year, landowners in Litchfield Park have been telling city residents and city staff that current regulations and zoning prevented them from being successful, growing their businesses and developing their land.

They have cited history, paid for surveys and collected data to prove that the current economic climate along with the restrictions on their properties was holding them back as well as holding back the city.

New radar gun has knack for stating obvious

A Virginia company is working on a new product that must be designed for cops who are completely oblivious to their surroundings.

Cops who sit on the side of the road, never once looking up from all of their fancy equipment.

Cops with zero observation skills.
