Those looking to buy a bike, rent a movie, grab a toasted sandwich or feast on Mexican cuisine will now have a harder time doing it in Chaska.

Four Chaska businesses have closed since December, including Brickyard Bikes and Mi Casa in downtown Chaska and Quiznos and Movie Gallery in Chaska Commons.

City Administrator Matt Podhradsky said that Chaska is not alone in seeing businesses close in the community. “It’s across the board,” he said. “Something we’re seeing in general.”

Revenues evaporating....expenses running out.......and this is a recovery.

TALLAHASSEE - Growing Medicaid caseloads, falling property tax revenue and other budget woes mean the state is now in an even deeper budget hole than experts were predicting last fall.

That likely means layoffs for state workers, Senate budget chief JD Alexander warned Wednesday.

In September, the state's top economists estimated that next fiscal year, Florida would come up $923 million short of meeting its most critical needs, such as in public schools and the courts. Factor in other expenses the state usually covers — such as health care for low-income organ transplant patients — and the predicted shortfall rose to almost $2.7 billion.

On Wednesday, members of the Senate Ways and Means committee listened as staff explained that Medicaid costs are rising and school enrollment is exceeding expectations while the property tax receipts that support public schools are dropping. Those and other factors are deepening next year's shortfall to $1.5 billion — and that's just to cover the state's most basic costs.

Factor in other anticipated spending, plus the need for an emergency fund, and the total shortfall could exceed $3 billion.

You know it is a recovery when our hospitals are going bankrupt.

The financially troubled Lower Bucks Hospital filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Wednesday nearly one week after its former top administrator suddenly quit and was immediately replaced with a Philadelphia attorney with no health care administrative experience.

In a press release, new CEO and President Albert Mezzaroba called the bankruptcy filing involving Lower Bucks Hospital, Lower Bucks Health Enterprises Inc. and Advanced Primary Care Physicians an “important step forward to address the challenges facing Lower Bucks Hospital.”

“I want to reassure our patients, our employees, our physicians and the community that Lower Bucks Hospital is not going out of business or closing its doors,” he wrote, adding the hospital will continue “normal operations” during the reorganization.

Trustee Chairman Ron Selzer Wednesday directed questions involving the hospital to its spokesman John Coffman.  Coffman and hospital officials have refused to answer questions about the finances involving the hospital, which opened in 1954.

 If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their  currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of  all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. – Thomas Jefferson (1809) 

America... Private Banks( Federal Reserve) already control the issuance of our currency. We are now waking up homeless on the continent our fathers conquered... What will we do about it!!!
