Imagine a 50,000 AM radio station that builds a tri-antenna array at a height of six hundred feet. Now imagine a farmer that is plowing his field calling to complain that he doesnít like his view from his North 40 plot. Communications are the backbone of our great country yet one farmer doesnít like the view??? (Apr 25, 2012 | post #20)

Yeeeeee Haaaaaa! Ride 'em Cowboy! This looks like an old fashioned Barn Burner. You get this gal to become Fire Chief and I'll whip these fire fighters into shape. I can put out a wild fire just like I can ride a wild bucking horse. I have my horses tamed in minutes. Give me those Fire Chief reigns and I'll have a fire like this one tamed in an hour. And I know how to give commands over the radio. Commands like, "Knock off the hugging the brothers until the fire is out". And, "Get a hose over here right NOW and get a hose in your hand!" And, "Get a grip on those hoses in the trucks and look smart while pulling them out!" "I have thirty communities offering assistance to put this fire out." We are going to fight this fire from inside and out. I want five hose teams. We are going to go through the lobby, up the stairs, down the hallway and push this Satin's fire back to where the sun don't shine!" And after it is all over in a short time, I'd invite those surrounding thirty communities that assisted for a panoramic photograph and picnic. Thirty trucks, thirty fire chiefs and the hundred firemen would be lined up in a semi-circle. I would be front and center with my horse. People would know Franklin Park for my leadership and bringing our fire fighting communities together. This country gal knows the difference between a barn burner and an emergency!

The best years in life are when one is in their twenties. It's a shame that some turn in the direction of manufacturing drugs. What was the motivation of this young man to do such a thing? What was he thinking? (Mar 25, 2011 | post #1)
Dear Cheryl, I read the endorsements in the newspaper. Iím so sorry for you sweetheart. That was a real blow. You probably donít even want to campaign anymore. Now youíll git the all the people askin you, ďDid you get endorsed by the newspaper?Ē Those that ask know full well and they just going to be mean. Weíll it looks like your political career is over. Are you going to withdraw from the race and avoid all the mean comments? I mean why stay in the race Cheryl? They only going to use you and then people going to hate you for letting yourself be used. No sense in that is there? I know what it is like when I go to the horse shows. Itís a lot of fun but when the horse ainít right, the crowd ainít right. Thatís a bad day. And if I see it comin, if I sense the horse ainít going to be right, then I donít perform. Anyways, youíll enjoy yourself bein out of the political arena. You put in many years and helped your people. Thatís a plus. Anyways after itís all over, come down to the ranch for some real ridiní and fun! -Marlynn Marlin- http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=zmIBj FWFto8 (Mar 25, 2011 | post #152)
This here Cowgirl has a comment and question for Trustee Cheryl McLean. I love that name Cheryl. It has country in it. Trustee McLean do you think you could sway Mayor Pedersen into putting a little more country into Franklin Park? I mean I saw your house with the pines 'n rustic fence and I just love it. I like your style of being a Trustee. You are open and honest. Ah know you can beat the others sweetheart. Politics is like Equestrian riding. You have to get over the hurdles, just like answering questions on the floor of a meeting. Same with riding a horse you have to have command over the animal. And yet show the animal love and compassion. After you win the race, me and the girls want you to come horseback riding with us. Here is an example of a Equestrian that has control. http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=79xXs eqZsoQ Beat 'em all in the race Cheryl. You can do it! Good Luck and use a horse shoe on them if you have to. -Marly- (Mar 19, 2011 | post #113)
Mayor Pedersen opens the floor up to public comment near the end of the meetings. Every person that wants to speak is allowed two minutes, as it should be. (Mar 18, 2011 | post #27)

YeeeeeHaaaaa! Here I come! I love horses! Maybe one day Mayor Pedersen will take some time off and ride with me and us girls. These animals are smart and beautiful. http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=14g4S 7LiHwU (Mar 18, 2011 | post #1231)
How many Candidates know how to ride a horse and know how to rope a steer? Ya know what I mean? How many of them can tackle the big problems n come away smiling and chew a stick of Wrigley's spearmint gum? (Mar 16, 2011 | post #21)
