Oct. 23 p Old time blue blood politicos
use to get their slates together a few days before election day and start
their back room tactics. Often those slates changed depending on how much
influence, back scratching, could be attained. Nothing was scarier for
those wanting to control our future, than for a last second switch.
Oct. 23 p Election laws like a 300
foot buffer zone were added to keep the scalawags from influencing those
entering polling places.
Oct. 23 p With well over 1/3 of all

time making their slates work. When phone calls are made, the response
is more likely to be, well heck, sorry pal, I've already voted. Darn darn

Oct. 22 p In the last Communicator,
we provided the write up on that caper and added , over the last ten years,
Lanham has been arrested 58 times resulting in just 8 convictions. For

not testify. Our guess is, those that refused to testify feared for their

and then throw her thru the back glass of a Jeep.
Oct. 22 p Fortunately for the
rest of Clayberry, this victim called up the Badges and now, Mikey Lanham
is back in jail awaiting a $180,000 bond. Intimidating a witness,
victim, is a serious crime. Lanham's pretrial hearing is slated for Thursday

felonies which if convicted, carry prison time sentences. Good!

Oct. 19 p We're all told about Queen
Isabella financing Columbus's float trip. Sometimes what the cleaned up
history books is less than accurate. Whatever the case, it was a holiday

air, you know what's about to happen ?
Oct. 19 p Come 3 o'clock in the morning,
all the covers are going to be wrapped over and under your spouse leaving
your hind end hanging out in the cold. They turn into stronger than steel
