Cops, Turkeys and Taxes

Letter to Editor published in News-Gazette 09 September 2006

I understand late last week there were no less than five police cars surrounding one of the wild turkeys near Blair Park in Urbana. I cannot believe we have enough police to accomplish this when there are so many other problems to be dealt with.

Plus, our illustrious mayor [Laurel Prussing] plans to increase our municipal taxes by 12 percent. Perhaps that’s to hire more police to capture more turkeys. I’ll not report any turkey sightings to anyone on the city payroll.
