The letters serve as reminders as to the City of Ellinwood's ordinances concerning this issues and I hope, if you should happen to receive a letter, you take it as a reminder to perform a spring clean up and get your property in shape for the summer.

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold. On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB's assets.
