Week Five, NFL. Quarter of the way through. I really need that reminder. One good thing about it, however. Manzel has been mentioned less and less. That’s a good thing. Odd how playboy quarterbacks wear thin so quickly.

The Sheriffs Deputy. Yup. Still pending. He’s agreed to a non-jury hearing/trial in front of a judge. The same judge that has been granting all the stays and delays. This one is for all the marbles. 21 counts of child molestation, etc.. The judge did indicate that she would have considered a change of venue motion. The ex-deputy opted for the non-jury trial.

He has indicated that he wishes it over and done with, one way or another. End of October is the due date, sentencing will be another hearing at another date if found guilty of one or more counts.

More judicial stuff from NE Ks:

JOHNSON COUNTY/KCTV 5 –

A judge in a northeast Kansas county has ordered it to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples following actions earlier this week by the U.S. Supreme Court.

So even conservative is in the mix. It is possibly correct that it occurred in the Liberal Kansas City county.

And,weee, the Kansas National Senate Race. Robertson is getting the message. He certainly is. I hope the son retires after six years – if he is elected. Better yet, get elected, get sworn in and then retire. That way the party can get another republican appointed for the next six years and we can get shut of a representative that doesn’t even own property in the State. No house, just a mail address. Home’s back East somewhere.

Personal opinion: Tax money sucker. Let’s go back a hundred and fifty years or so and have these Washington bums  appointed by the States Governors, then we can see how well they represent their States.

What Else: Oh. Yeah. I’m finally eligible to drive again. I was legally blind there for a while. Weird. Seven months of constant eye drops. Messy. I’m grateful to modern science, however. Nice to see the trees change color. The eye doc signed the papers yesterday after a battery of test I’d not experienced before – thought I’d have to memorize all the charts to pass the tests.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
