Sweet, Sweet Obama Money Puts
Local Landscapers Back To Work
When Area Man Dave O'Brien decided to
do some landscaping work this fall, he had no idea he
would be getting some help from a family member. Good
old Uncle Sam.
On the day the landscapers were to begin work, a MN Dot
truck showed up and put a big sign in his front yard
letting the world know that there was Economic Stimulus money
hard at work, right in their own neighborhood.
"I had no idea this could qualify for Stimulus
money. Come to think of it, I didn't even ask for any
money from the state or federal government. But before I
knew it, two or three checks a day were showing up in my
mailbox. $103,000 here $278,000 there... it is really
starting to add up."
It is unclear how Mr. O'Brien's project was
submitted for approval or even why it qualifies for
"I guess it's official that the Democrats are back in
charge" Mr. O'Brien added with a wink.
