" Understanding " Breakfast Journalism Update.....
 
"Who do you have breakfast with?"

"I shook my head and said nothing; just stared at him for a moment, trying to look grim.
"There's going to be trouble," I said. "My assignment is to take pictures of the riot."
"What riot?"
"I hesitated"... "At the track. On Derby Day. A riot.
" I stared at him again. "Don't you read the newspapers?"
The grin on his face had collapsed. "What the hell are you talkin' about?"
"Well...maybe I shouldn't be telling you..." I shrugged. "But, EVERYBODY ELSE SEEMS TO KNOW.
The cops and the National Guard have been getting ready for six weeks. They have 20,000 troops on alert
at Fort Knox. They've warned us--all the press and photographers--to wear helmets and special vests like flak jackets."

by Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, the distinguished Louisville author.

Breakfast Journalism Update

 

The 'ol breakfast discussion

I listened as  The Day After Breakfast

was very positive, no angry birds were present,

and there was some very good analysis.  They felt

that there was a strong indication  that  the Democrats

will hold the Clerk, they will pick up two additional seats to go

to a 5-4 majority on the city council, and the Republicans will strongly

hold the Mayor's office in the General Election. (Now, don't go

'Angry Bird'  on me,  Savile Row is merely

reporting the observations.)

There

was also

a discussion

about whom the

Clark County Democrat

Party Chair Tom Galligan will

appoint as the town and city 2015 chairs

for the various communities in consultation with

the various Democrat slates in each

of the individual community's

races.

As to an opponent for  CouncilPerson Z being named by Clark County Democrat Chair

Tom Galligan, you may be quite correct. He just called a breakfast club person

on his way to a top secret destination. There is a VERY QUALIFIED

and EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE  person

who has been offered the appointment.

At this time, she does not want

to run,

but  there is the wish that she would run

as she would be formidable. On the other hand,

the  Republican  organization under the very capable leadership

of Clark County Republican Chair Jamey Noel will be very well organized.

Jeffersonville City Court

One of the methods
that has been successfully utilized in other states
is to increase the jurisdiction of the municipal courts

to include the lower level felonies,
like the D Felony charge
that is used in Indiana.
A 'D Felony' is the lowest level felony offense category in Indiana.

 

The 'D Felony' level of charge is not currently utilized in the Indiana municipal court system.
It is an "intermediate level offense category".

 

 

The utilization of the equivalent of a D Felony
in municipal courts his has resulted in several
immediate improvements in the various

state courts' criminal justice systems where it has been implemented.

 

The higher trial level courts are freed to dedicate more time to the more serious criminal felony cases ,
the cases in all of the courts are moved more efficiently and quickly,

the attorneys, prosecutors, defendants,
and the law enforcement agencies
like the methodology.
 

 

The process of originating the low level felonies in the municipal courts
allows the cases to receive much greater attention
which has resulted in quicker disposition
of cases, better sentencing policies,
better probation control
and counseling
programs,
and the lessening of crime statistics, and a lowering of recidivism
.

It has worked very well.
The State of Indiana would be wise in considering such a change.

But wouldn't reinstating a court with larger jurisdiction be dreadfully more expensive?

Pesty, dreadful shame on you for that!

You are exposing some  unusual city council critters

that should know better and subsequently utilized weak specious arguments

to harm the public and interfere with the orderly, efficient, and correct

operation of an essential part of the criminal justice system!

K in '11, you seem so tense ...

It may be because Callie Jahn is an excellent candidate

and will be very, very difficult to defeat......

Isn't TG your bud anymore?

The great ideas ARE in play....

 

BTW, where is that check for the Ogle Animal Shelter?

Perhaps...One day.

 

I have no reason to doubt that she's a nice young woman...But I prefer to see the city in the hands of people who have a little more life and work experience under their belt...In that order...Eventually she'll have some of that and then I can take her candidacy a bit more seriously.

Ouch! That wasn't very nice, Jules! Ms. Jahn may be young but I believe she is a UofL graduate and very knowledgeable young woman. In Clark County, I think I would rather give a young person with no former "Clark County political baggage" a chance. I think the only way we will really clean up "Dodge" (aka Jeff) is to get some new blood and eliminate the "good ole boys". Doubt that will happen, but it sure would be refreshing! Good luck to Ms. Jahn and all the young people who want to make a difference.

You're right IM...That's what my son said too, ( but he's a nicer person than me)...Lol...The last sentence wasn't necessary and I was editing as you posted before company stopped by.

(Although if honest that is the first thing that comes to my mind). :)

 

However, my other thoughts stand...It would take a great deal more than a cute face and a "vote for me" to feel comfortable handing a young 20 something just out of college a vote in governance of a city the size/budget of Jeffersonville...Also, while young can mean fresh, it can also mean someone who doesn't have the "moxie" yet to play a confident/competent  role on the council...That doesn't have a thing to do with education or character, but with maturity...That thing that comes with a little more age,time, and experience...In my mind someone in their 30's/40's are "young" when it comes to politics, but they've lived, worked, and experienced life just a little bit more than a 20 something fresh out of college ( or even high school as some previous candidates)...So I'm fine with younger candidates but there's a big difference in my mind between young and too young.

 

Also there are things young people who want to serve the city can do BEFORE actually making a run for office to prepare themselves...But quite honestly even having a resume padded with community involvement ( which I would applaud them for) I would still find it hard to give a vote to someone that young...At that age they aren't prepared to be truly effective council members.
