    Why stop the FBI investigation at the County Auditor and BoR, when the conspiracy clearly runs deeper than that? I heard a rumor that Trump was in on it too. The reason he's hiding his tax returns is that it will show all the kickbacks from Mayor Moore and his cronies!
    Side note, who else thinks we should let her back on social media? It's a lot easier to keep track of what her next conspiracy of the day is when she's blasting it on all available channels. Now that she has no outlet it worries me that I don't know what her next hair-brained scheme is.

    The barbershop said they've been losing money for years. They would have eventually gone out of business even if the shopping center owner didn't raise rates.
    I'd also be interested to know actual dollar values he was paying before and after the increase, especially compared to other retail spots in the area. I certainly can't make any judgement calls about whether the rate increase is appropriate without knowing these things. Gun to my head, I'm guessing the barbershop was getting a below-market rate for years. Can anyone actually say for sure, or is everyone just passing judgment based on assumptions?

    Oh geeze, I would've been kicked out in the first month! I regularly forget to close my garage door.

    Honestly, I can't say I've ever noticed, but maybe that's just where I live (Japonica). Personally, under most circumstances, I don't think it would bother me at all if lots of neighbors had RV's. Who cares what they do in their spare time? Obviously if they were blocking sight-lines or sidewalks or taking up parking it would be a problem -- but even then it's not so much about the cause as the symptom.

    Yes, it's partially because she's in the "war zone" (her words), but I think it's more than that. She's a person that values her opinion over that of others, and denigrates anyone who disagrees with her (even if she was just praising that person for agreeing with her on another issue). She is an expert on taxes because she worked for the IRS once. She is an expert on real estate because she was once a broker and a "candidate for the Institute of Real Estate Management Certified Property Manager certification" (I read "candidate" asĀ  "uncertified"). She's rehabbed homes, so her opinion on construction soil erosion trumps that of a practicing soil geologist (my wife). She's lived in the neighborhood since the dinosaurs and I've lived here less than a year (creepy that she keeps track) so my opinion is "barely relevant".
    Because her Expert Opinion is Always Right, she doesn't see the discrepancy between forcing hours and hours of work on village employees and complaining about higher taxes, or filing to lower her property valuation while complaining that it's the village's fault when values go down.
    My mom thinks she's just lonely and bored. It's hard to deny that it's part of it (how can you have a social life when you spend all your time compiling spreadsheets to raise your neighbors taxes, or preparing for your next lawsuit?), but I think she's so dug in and has been for so long that there's no turning back. We could get a complete new council, village staff, and police force, and she'd still find John Nash-esque connections proving that the same conspiracies are still going on.
    And that's from observing her for less than a year...

    This is great! We don't seem to have a snow blower guy on our street, as evidenced by my snowed-in sidewalks. Guess that means I need to convince the wife that we need a snowblower so I can be our SBG!
