Wow, a Seminar on how to get your fair share of the infinite flow of money coming the Feds! Where does all this funding come from and who eventually pays for it?

Why doesn't McNee just stand on the street corner and hand out cash to anyone who promises to vote for him? There's no difference except to eliminate all that bureaucracy in the center.

Hey, Emily West...this is old news...it happened yesterday, August 18th. Are you just trying to fill space? The Danville Weekly should announce new news and scheduled events. The DW is really missing the boat.

By the way...I don't believe the workshop was targeted to us folks in need. I think it was targeted to government, education and non profits.

Grants for non-profits? How about grants for for-profit small businesses? Private enterprize is where all the money comes from.

Oops, enterprise! These things should have a spell check.

Too late, McNerney, you're still going to be voted out!

Julia, it was posted Wednesday as stated below the excerpt: "Read the full story here Web Link posted Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 2:32 PM" The original story was a "hot pick" in our email edition. When someone comments on a story, it shows up in Town Square as a new forum topic.

Okay...Emily, I stand corrected. I didn't fully understand your policy.

Thanks for the information
