what does he mean by "cover the costs"? Cover what costs exactly? Also, is it their job to create a reserve fund? Sounds more like an ATM to me - that they can raid at will. Death by a thousand paper cuts.

This is the real Julia...I have no idea why someone wants to impersonate me, but if that turns you on...GO FOR IT.

For the record the December 20, 2013 posted comment @ 1:00pm did not come from Julia Pardini from Alamo...It is most likely from some weak minded fool in Danville.

Yes thank you for listening, The Real Julia Pardini from Alamo
