LIBRARY POLLS OVER-OPTIMISTIC?
Trib reports today that the special library district, if passed, would boost library hours above what we currently have. I wonder if those glowing polls showing support for the district might change? By the time folks vote on this, Obamacare will be stressing many family incomes, and Medford's fees will ramp up, and F/T workers become P/T due to perverse healthcare incentives to employers.
It wouldn't be a stretch to figure 2014 being a tough sell for any extra tax charges, even in Peter Buckley's district. Of course, many of the voters who will vote for the district may not be property owners, so what do they care? They think "someone else pays", even though it's eventually paid through their rent.
Love this show, and wondered about the few times I heard beeps. Turns out they were faked. Now, I'm "Heppy, Heppy, Heppy" to hear that.

TALKERS PROFILE: Bill Meyer of KMED, Medford, Oregon - Super Serving Local Listeners, a Blueprint for Talk Success.
If you leave Portland, Oregon and head just over four hours south down Interstate 5, before you reach the California border you’ll drive right into the town of Medford. About 75 miles inland through rugged terrain from the Pacific Ocean, Medford is a small town with a population of 76,000, but is also an economic hub for Southern Oregon and a home for the state’s growing wine industry. Medford is also the home of KMED-AM (1440), a news/talk station owned by Bicoastal Media and the oldest radio station in Medford. Its weekday lineup includes syndicated superstars Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, along with Glenn Beck and Alex Jones. However, what drives the station is their morning show, and extremely talented host Bill Meyer has not only made the morning show his own, he has been able to create a blueprint of how to package a large-market type of local show and imprint that on a small-market audience, giving the station a very sellable show, while the listeners get the interaction and local flavor they would not get with a nationally syndicated program. And, he does it all on his own - without a show producer.
