Trying to sell Senate seat? Just business as usual
People just don’t understand how the Democrat Party works. Buying and selling political offices is a common occurrence. There would have been no problem for Governor Blagojevich selling Senator Obama’s seat were it not for a disagreement over the price.
The governor wanted a high price since the seat was just like new. Obama hardly used it. He spent all of his time as a senator running for the presidency.
On the other hand, the governor was asking more for the remaining portion than the Obama crowd originally paid for the whole term!
Family squabbles do tend to get nasty!

Thanks for your support
Mark Wineka’s Dec. 23 article on the closing of Rodgers Exxon and the editorial that followed the next day could not have better captured the character of Rodgers Exxon and what it has meant to our family over so many years.
All along, it has been the dedicated customers of Salisbury … such a long history of them … who have truly made this business what it has been.
Thank you to all who have stopped by the station since Mark’s article came out last week. Thank you all for your 80 years of support! It could never have happened without you. You have given one person (Bobby) a very fulfilled lifetime of memories.
One special thanks to Peter Fulton, who has been such a very loyal employee for so many years!
After Bobby locked the door for the last time on Dec. 31, he will truly miss the most all of the good friends who have supported him through the years.
ó Bobby and Beverly Rodgers
