Good recipe for making decisions

If you are in a position where you have to make an important decision the following might be of assistance.

1. Recognize and define the problem about which you have to decide.

2. Consider all the alternatives. Discuss them with others if you know people who will not attempt to influence your final decision.

3. Gather what facts you can concerning the alternatives.

4. Evaluate and choose the information most pertinent to your situation.

5. Learn the steps you must take to put your decisions into action.

6. Once you have made your decision, don't second guess yourself. Be confident that you made the correct decision with the information available to you.

7. Remember that there are seldom such things as “right” or “wrong” decisions. Only alternatives.

8. When you find yourself in a deadlock between one alternative and another, pick the one that pleases you most.

A job worth crowing about

I am proud of our five full-time Crow Patrol volunteers, and part-time college student volunteers, some of whom don’t even live in Terre Haute. Instead of sitting in our nice warm, dry living rooms, watching TV and complaining, we do the best job that we can with what we have to do with.

Most people don’t know what we really do, or how we do it, but we keep a lot of crows out of the downtown area. If you think we should keep them out of all of Terre Haute, we would be glad to have your help.

We meet in the parking lot west of the Sheriff’s Department Monday through Saturday at 5 p.m. in cold, snow, rain, or sunshine. Hope to see you there.

Hillary and the bores of Tripoli

After poor Susan Rice was thrown under the bus for towing Secretary Clinton’s line that the U. S. invasion of Libya was not unpopular with the Libyan people because … they had twittered us so …

The Republican “opposition” including Rand Paul were left boorishly scolding her for not being as good an imperialist as they might have been. Ron Paul was needed to ask, “What the hey were we doing there in the first place?”

Republicans’ rhetorical race to see who can sound the most selfish now exchanged for the sickly smug grace of liberals in power.
