Brief of the Brief - July 23, 2010

This week Dave's bulletin included info on:
  1. some possible juvi-pyros
  2. firemen collecting donations for charity
  3. gas tax update (see below for commentary)
  4. our library getting More Donations, Woohoo!
  5. construtction updates, Woohoo!
City's 2¢/gall. gas tax update
  • good news: they're starting to pay up. Yayyy....
  • bad news: they're seeking an appeal at the state level & bringing the city of Sister's into the picture. Booooo....

Opinion: They should leave Cornelius alone. Realize this is the cost of
doing business in a financially stressed town, and be thankful that they will
soon get a serious uptick in business with the
Walmart opening. I just think they're fundamentally money-hungry and
are very paranoid of the highly competitive gas-markets Hillsboro, Aloha, Forest
Grove etc... Personally I think it makes no sense - Like I've said in the past.
People will continue to pick up gas at the same convenient location that makes
them happy. Personally, I don't see anyone bypassing Cornelius gas stations just
to save 2¢/gall down 3+ miles away.
