Fire Safe Council gets “Miner’s Foundry” (sic) wrong in fundraising announcement

We’ve lived here for about a decade, so it’s hard for me to understand why the local nonprofit fundraisers, managed by longtime locals — in this case, the Fire Safe Council — still can’t get it right that it’s “Miners Foundry,” not “Miner’s Foundry.” Podunk.

    I notice the morons on Todd’s blog think this is OK — a big typo on a fundraiser invitation. No, it’s not. Only a hillbilly would defend it. But then consider the losers who comment on Todd’s blog — without signing their names.

    And then there’s Todd himself. You can’t make this stuff up!

    What do you know! Barry Pruett crawled out from under his rock to make a comment on Todd’s blog. I hope his legal briefs are more accurate that what he proclaims to know. I guess it deflects attention from his own personal and professional failures.

    Meanwhile, glad to see this error in the invitation was corrected. Good going!
