As using gambling to help defray taxes or similar wording. Yeah, let's get this done and be able to pay "infrastructure projects" I'm tried of my gasoline taxes being used over and over to repair the same spot on the road. You would think some roads and bridges remain useful for several yrs. w/o constant repairing. A local bridge will again be rebuild? and be out of service for at least a year if not more.

Maybe, I'll not write-in, "Mickey Mouse" this year at voting booth. Wink -----Willy Shocked

Our local streets took a beating this winter

and I'm sure yours have as well. The city crew tried to keep the biggest pot holes filled but they'd bust back open within days. You'd think that this technology would have advanced by now to where a roadbed and surface could stand up a little longer than 2 or 3 years. Of course that would put a lot of folks out of work and we can't have that.

True, sadly true

It was bad winter and the cold patching couldn't take and they wouldn't do it because they knew it wouldn't take. Further, when they did, it didn't last and had to repatch yet again. Of course, its still cold patching and heaven forbid any major street repairs or utility fixes because later when the ice/water receded the hole falls and makes a huge dip with the patch above. Now, they come later and redo it again. I guess that's the best we can hope for, but its all over the town/city some areas worse than others. -----Willy Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
