Picky, Picky, Picky

The Pensacola Beach Blogger really wants to rub it in just because because the FBI and IRS decided to arrest Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris while he was on vacation in Las Vegas.

The “Good Ol’ Boys” are shocked to think that Charlie might have had his hand in the cookie jar, along with his administrative director, Teresa Adams.

Here’s a hint: The county and the state are scrambling to cover budget shortfalls because of the GOPression, and the position of Sheriff doesn’t actually pay all that much [it’s not like he’s a football couch or someone important]. How in hell can he afford a vacation in Las Vegas [that no one actually knew he was taking, but, then, he doesn’t spend a lot of time in the county]?

Now we are going to have to have a special election that we can’t afford. Of course, unlike Charlie, we should assume he is innocent until he is convicted of something.

Day 14 – The End Is In Sight

Yukon Quest Map

Sled DogWayne Hall (28) made it in early this morning, the last musher with a payday. William Pinkham (17) came in two hours later.

Becca Moore (22) and Iris Wood Sutton (9) are on the trail to Two Rivers and the 8 hour mandatory rest stop. They are the last two teams in the race.

Yuka Honda (24), the Japanese school teacher, scratched at the Mile 101, another victim of Eagle Summit. She spent nearly 32 hours on the trail from Central to Mile 101 getting over the mountain. She made an attempt to climb Rosebud, but had to turn around.

As Predicted

From Australian Broadcasting: Crews fight 4 major blazes as temperatures rise.

The rising temperatures and winds are fueling the fires. The crews are working to contain the fires until conditions improve later today, but that improvement will come with shifting winds and possible dry lightning setting new fires.

Rain, and a lot of it, is the only real cure, and no one realistically sees that happening anytime soon.
