Just a Thought – About the Urge to Merge

Sometimes it seems like the reaction of city-county voters to the proposed metro charter government is like our local version of the health care reform battle.

On one side, a passionate defense of the urge to merge because of efficiency and savings.

On the other side, as in the health care debate, repeated cries of “Don’t tread on me.”

One major difference is time. Many of the health care reform bill’s provisions don’t kick in for a few more years.

Metro government proponents have less than 90 days to make their case.

Feds release small biz scorecard

The U.S. government granted a record $96.8 billion in contracts to small businesses during its 2009 fiscal year, but still fell short of its goal.
The figure amounted to 21.89 percent of contracts when the goal was 23 percent.
However, it surpassed the goal set for small disadvantaged businesses. Contracts awarded to those businesses totaled $33.5 billion, which was 7.57 percent of contracts. The goal was 5 percent.
The figures were revealed with the release of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s procurement scorecard.
The scorecard rated agencies from A to F.
Homeland Security got an A, Housing and Urban Development got a B, NASA got a C, the Department of Justice got a D and the National Science Foundation got a F.

The Charter Rundown

We’ve put together our own summary of how the proposed metro charter works. The print version in the new edition of The Memphis News and the one you will see on the pdf version of The Memphis News is a basic summary that covers the major working parts of the charter. It’s a concise version meant to give citizens unfamiliar with any of this a place to start.

We have a much more detailed version on The Daily News website. Just click on the “Charter 411” story and you will have our complete summary. It includes such items as what parts of the county are in which metro council districts, the departments suggested by the charter, annexation details – all of the details that are going to get a lot of scrutiny between now and Nov. 2 when voters vote this up or down.

Also the Friday “government focus” features between now and the end of October will feature details on the charter provisions.

Former State Sen. Paul Stanley on – Tiger Woods

I’m not going to provide any commentary about this at all. It speaks for itself.

Here’s a link to former Tennessee state senator Paul Stanley’s post on his own blog questioning why the media and the public are fascinated with the Tiger Woods sex scandal-divorce.

Stanley resigned from the state senate in 2009 after an affair he’d had with a young intern came to light.

Just a Thought

The Memphis City Council took the city school system to court in 2008 over the council’s belief that city taxpayers are double-taxed for schools. The city lost, and it now owes as much as $57 million (though the final tab might be less).

But if paying that tab requires a special tax bill to be issued to city residents – one of a few options on the table – does that mean residents are now being triple-taxed for schools?
