The program that you are hearing while viewing this Website is my interview recorded on April 13, 2018 with Aborist Connie Kratzke of Kahnke Brothers Tree Farm just outside of Glencoe (Minnesota).
Interestingly enough, that same weekend, a BLIZZARD WARNING was issued for portions
of Minnesota, including the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. That turned out to make
April 2018 the SNOWIEST APRIL IN RECORDED HISTORY !!

RECENT COMMENTS ABOUT MY INTERNET SHOW
Hi Dick: I meant to tell you last week that the interview with Mike was great. WE really enjoyed it.
Just to let you know that Thurs. line up was all messed up, Your show was not aired till 10:00. I had a doctor appointment at 10. Luckily I installed a VLC media player and I was able to record that show and listen to it today.
You always have an entertaining show and really do a great job. Thank You for doing it each week. God Bless and have a great week. Polkatively Yours, Linda and Tom
Hi there Delta - Just wanted to write you a short note thanking you for the shout out on today's radio program! :-) That was quite a surprise and made me smile this morning! :-)

"Love the Website. It's incredible."
"Looked at some of your life time; Great job. You looked like a person that did his job well. We need good people like that; keep it up and GOD BLESS."
"What a mess, and farce, and taxpayers are footing the bill. Where is common sense ?" "I looked at your website – you have quite the story."
"Dick, I don't think people care, plain & simple. The fact they don't "know" is apathy, laziness for many, some are working several jobs, trying to raise a family, and are exhausted."
"How much money did the City of Hamburg waste on attorneys fees related to your website?" (So far; the city has spent, as near as I can calculate, about $33,000.00 !! At the Budget Meeting in September, Hamburg Mayor Richard Malz called for the 2016 budget for legal fees to be INCREASED by an ADDITIONAL$9,000.00; for a total of $15,000.00 for 'legal expenses' in 2016 !!)
"Hello Mr. Odoms, I saw your website in the NYA Times. Bravo!!! Who says an “alien implant” (a term I’m using to explain how some of us feel who are not “native born sons”) can’t be heard and can’t have some say? I’ve heard one disgruntled newcomer to the local area describe it this way: “You’re a nobody and have no real sense of belonging or feeling welcome unless you have three generations of ancestors buried in the local cemetery.” The citizens of Hamburg and the surrounding area are very fortunate to have you “telling it like it is”. Don’t let anyone intimidate you into giving up. You are a TRUE public servant and so much more!!! More small towns around here need a Richard Odoms. Perhaps you will be the “spark” that will spread."

My Four Year 'Experience' As A Hamburg City Council Member Really 'Opened My Eyes' As
To What Takes Place In A 'Small Town'. I Sincerely Hope That What I Observed Take
Place With Our City's Elected (And Other) Officials During My City Council Term
Isn't Indicative Of What's Taking Place In Similar Sized Cities, Towns
And Communities All Across Our Great Country.
President Trump Is 'Spot On'. If What I Experienced And Continue To Observe Taking Place
Also, On NOVEMBER 7, 2017, I Sent A Three Page Letter To Hamburg Mayor Chris Lund Requesting A WRITTEN Response To Information, Answers, Explanations And Documents I Was Seeking About Some Of The Things That Are Taking Place In OUR City. Please CLICK HERETo Read That Initial Letter To Lund.
Talk About ARROGANCE & IRRESPONSIBILITY; As Of APRIL 6, 2018, Lund Has FAILED TO RESPOND To My Initial NOVEMBER 7th(CLICK HERE), Lund has ALSO FAILED TO Responded To A Written 'Follow-Up' Request Letter Sent To Him On NOVEMBER 14th(CLICK HERE) As Well As To Yet ANOTHER LETTER Sent To Him On JANUARY 16th!!(PLEASE CLICK HERE.)
The Longer The Release And Availability Of Requested Information To The Public Is Withheld And The More 'Closed' City Council Meetings That Are Conducted, The MORE GUILTY It Makes EVERYBODY Involved, Apparently Are.
Where is Lund'sACCOUNTABILITY ?? And HisINTEGRITY ?? If Hamburg's TOP ELECTED OFFICIAL Doesn't Have Integrity And Accountability, How Can We Expect 'City Hall Staff' To Have Them ?
This Fall's City Election Will Be Very 'Interesting' To Say The Least !!
We've All HEARD About GOVERNMENT TRANSPARANCY But REALLY, What Is It ??
Openness, accountability, and honesty define government transparency. In a free society, transparency is government's obligation to share information with citizens. It
is at the heart of how citizens hold their public officials accountable.
Governments exist to serve the people.
For Your Information And What You May Not Know Is That The Hamburg City Council Quietly, And Without 'Fanfare', Recently Voted To CHANGE THE TERM OF HAMBURG MAYOR From TWO Years To FOUR Years Beginning In 2019!!
"POWER GRAB" ??I KNOW One When I SEE One !!
(I Think We All Can GUESS WHO Surreptitiously 'Orchestrated' That !!)
AND WHY WASN'T INFORMATION OF WHAT TAKES PLACE AT PUBLIC HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS CURRENT AND AVAILABLE
ON THE CITY'S 'OFFICIAL' WEBSITE ??
At the May 14, 2013 Hamburg City Council Meeting, I suggested adding the tape recorded Council meetings to the 'Official' Hamburg Website; the City agreed to do that.
Check out a December 7, 2017 'Screenshot' of the City's 'Official' Website, yourself, and you'll see that there are numerous instances, in just 2017 alone, where recordings of City Council proceedings, as well as 'Minutes' of City Council Meetings, aren't available to the public on the City's Website. One would certainly expect that City Hall Administrative Staff that are paid somewhere around $80-85,000.00 annually could AT LEASTensure that information about what's taking place in the City is available to City residents !!
WHY IS ACCOUNTABILITY IMPORTANT ??
It is at the local level where citizens and the public sector interact most regularly and directly – be it registering for school, attending a health clinic or applying for social housing. So when corruption occurs locally, the impact on citizens’ lives can be the most damaging, with the poorest being hit the hardest.
When elections are rigged, bribes paid in order to access basic services, and public funds diverted into private hands, the public good comes second; citizens’ interests are harmed and trust in those that govern us is eroded.
At the same time, opportunities for direct civil society engagement and oversight are greatest at the local level, providing an opportunity of strengthening integrity and accountability through civic oversight.

MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL
in 2018 !!
THE MAN WHO WANTS TO BE MINNESOTA'S NEXT ATTORNEY GENERAL RECENTLY
The Hamburg City Council voted, once again, to INCREASE HAMBURG RESIDENT'S PROPERTY TAXES by ANOTHER 5.14% in 2018 !! Total budget amount submitted to Carver County by the City of Hamburg for 2018 was $486,994.00, and INCLUDED yet ANOTHER 2% PAY INCREASE for Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer Jeremy Gruenhagen; someone who ALREADY is pulling in somewhere in the neighborhood of an obscene $80-$85,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS annually in his 'salary & benefits' package.
Any Hamburg residents reading this Webpage (or anybody else) being paid that kind of money with TAXPAYER DOLLARS ?? Only in Hamburg !!
It's no wonder our property taxes are the HIGHEST in ALL of Carver County.
Incidentally, one Hamburg City Council Member voted AGAINST giving Gruenhagen ANY raise whatsoever !! In the eleven years that I've lived in Hamburg, I don't EVER recall an instance where ANY Councilmember voted AGAINST giving Gruenhagen ANY salary increase !! That action was LONG OVERDUE !! And 'sends an important message' to Hamburg Taxpayers and reinforces my assertions previously expressed !!
LOCAL GOVERNMENT 'MIRRORS' THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
On Friday, February 2, 2018, President Trump Ordered The Release & 'Declassification' Of Certain 'Revealing Documents' That Were Used In An Attempt To Discredit Him By Maliciously Alleging That He 'Had Ties' With Russia.
The Intent Of Those False And Fabricated Documents Was A Covert Attempt To Prevent Him From Being Elected President; Partly Because Of His Being So 'Outspoken' Against Government Waste And Inefficiency. You'll Remember During His Presidential Campaign His 'Promise' To 'DRAIN THE SWAMP' Of Government !!
The Release Of These 'Declassified' Documents Debunk The Reckless Allegations Made Against The President. It Also Gives Citizens A Keen Insight As To Just How Far Some Government Officials Will Go To Try And Discredit And Destroy Those Persons Who Expose Wasteful Spending Of Taxpayer Dollars, 'Call Out', And Hold Accountable, Those Officials And Other Taxpayer Paid Employees, Who Exhibit Bad Behavior, Incompetence, Inappropriate Actions And Public Misconduct. EXAMPLE: Hamburg, Minn.
The City Of Hamburg Also Has AT LEAST TWO Similar, Very 'Revealing, Incontrovertible 'Documents' In It's Possession About What's Taken Place In Our City, That Are Being Withheld From City Residents: 1)November 5, 2014 Letter To The Hamburg Mayor And City Council And 2)Recording Of The"Closed"City Council Meeting Held At The End Of September 2015.
Like The Documents Concerning President Trump, These Documents, Too, NEED TO BE RELEASED So City Residents Can Know What's Taken Place With YOUR CITY OFFICIALS !!
(Remember: I SAW & HEARD EVERYTHING THAT TOOK PLACE Because I WAS THERE !!)
Then, And Only Then, Will All Of The Dastardly Deeds Of It's Officials And Everything Else That's Taken Place In The City
That You've All Read About On This Website, Clearly 'Come Into Focus' For Everyone To Know; Hamburg Resident Or Not.
"FORD FIRES EXECUTIVE FOR BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS"
STAR-TRIBUNE Newspaper; Thursday February 22. 2017: "Ford has ousted one of it's top executives over allegations of unspecified inappropriate behavior."
Apparently, 'private' sector employers are much less tolerant of employee misconduct and inappropriate behavior than are their 'government' sector counterparts.

Is There ANY Question Left In ANYBODY'S Mind Why Hamburg City Officials Attempted To (Unsuccessfully) FORCE Me Off Of The Hamburg City Council ??

CLAWBACK: A term we first heard about during the criminal trials of Denny Hecker and Tom Petters; a "clawback" is an action whereby an employer or benefactor takes back money that has already been disbursed, sometimes with an added penalty.
PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND A COUPLE OF THINGS ...........
In Tuesday's February 20, 2018 edition of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE Newspaper they reported that as of January 1, 2018, there existed a 'backlog' of 3,147 'unresolved, outstanding maltreatment allegations' of 'elders' (Senior Citizens); information presumably provided by the Minnesota Department of Health. Now, six weeks later, that same state agency reports that there are ONLY 712 'unresolved' cases; 2,435 cases were 'resolved' in such a short period of time? Figuring five days a week minus a few 'holidays' when state employees didn't work, if my math is correct, that would tally out to be close to 100 CASES BEING 'RESOLVED' IN A SINGLE DAY !! Either state employees weren't previously doing their job diligently, or the 'numbers' reported by the Minnesota Department of Health, are grossly incorrect !! And, how closely are/were the cases really being investigated ?? PLEASE CLICK HERE for the entire story.
Second; "MINLARS'; Minnesota's $97 MILLION white elephant that was supposed to update, improve and streamline residents driver's license and vehicle registrations processing, is being reported to going to cost Minnesota Taxpayers ANOTHER $43 MILLION !! And, has 'somebody' dismissed the OTHER $26 MILLION that was also privately paid but seems to have been forgotten about ??

LEAD IN HAMBURG'S DRINKING WATER ??
In Mid-December,The City of Hamburg Mailed Out Information Telling Residents That 'Elevated Levels' Of Lead Have Been Discovered In The Drinking WaterOf Some Homes & Buildings In The City Of Hamburg.
I'm certainly no expert on water quality, BUT; the FIRST question that comes to MY mind is; If the City doesn't know how 'wide-spread' the problem is (sounds to me like is just a few homes/businesses), WHY introduce additional chemicals ('polyphosphates') into the ENTIRE City water system that serves ALL City residents; most of which apparently don't have any 'problem' !
If residents on one end of town don't have a problem with their water, I don't think they would want additional chemicals added that will affect their water just because somebody else, on the other end of town, has a 'problem' with their water. Make sense to you ?
Seems to me that 'lets add more chemicals to our water' is a 'knee jerk' reaction and needs more, concentrated thought. Residents need more information; how much lead, what did the City know and how long have they known it; things like that.
Again; to get the complete 'story', call the Hamburg City Hall At (952) 467-3232. Please tell them that you read about this issue on my Website; www.thedeltashow.com and/or the 'flyer' that was mailed to all Hamburg residents.
It's Now Official; According To Carver County Taxpayer Services ..................
HAMBURG AGAIN TOPS THE LIST OF THE TEN HIGHEST PROPERTY TAXES IN CARVER COUNTY !!
For More Information, Please Scroll Down This Webpage
The year 2016 was a record year for opioid-related deaths in Hennepin County. We experienced 153 opioid-related deaths - a 39% increase over 2015. The State of Minnesota experienced 402 opioid-related deaths during 2016.
For this reason, Sheriff Rich Stanek and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office launched a drug abuse prevention campaign called #NOverdose. As part of the campaign, the Sheriff’s Office has partnered with school-parent organizations, law enforcement agencies, elected officials, businesses, and health & community organizations to assist educating the community about current drug dangers, trends and prevention.
America's opioid epidemic is the deadliest drug crisis in U.S. history, with drug overdoses claiming more lives last year than car accidents or gun violence. The toll, as a White House Commission put it, is theequivalent of a new 9/11 attack every three weeks !!
Sheriff Stanek remains committed to public safety issues such as continuing to fight violent crime, attacking the deadly opioid epidemic, and ending the criminalization of mental illness. He brings more than 34 years of law enforcement experience to the Office of Sheriff. In addition to the previously mentioned public safety priorities, he is committed to financial stewardship, leadership, and public safety advocacy. Since being elected, Sheriff Stanek has ensured the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office operated under budget while maintaining a consistent number of employees. He has led the agency by speaking to community groups, hosting listening sessions, and building trust by working directly with residents and businesses every day.
"Sheriff Stanek is a proven public safety leader in Hennepin County," said Don Davis; a retired Hennepin County Police Chief and former Commissioner of Public Safety & Homeland Security for the State of Minnesota. "During his 11 years in office, he has led initiatives that focus on local and national issues that other elected officials don't want to talk about. From opioids to jail mental illness, he is leading the charge to ensure residents, victims, inmates, and his staff have the resources, tools, and training they need."
"Rich is our local Sheriff. Whatever the time or day of the week it may be, I can confidently pick up the phone and call him about any issue that is affecting me and my community," said Kylee Simonson. "Rich works tirelessly with community members to have their needs heard, provide education about emerging public safety issues, and build trust in the Hennepin County Sheriff's office. His dedication to local public safety is one of the chief reasons why I want him as my local Sheriff."
"Sheriff Stanek has been a great community partner," said Bishop Howell; the Pastor at Shiloh Temple. "As a member of his Community Advisory Board I know that I can bring faith-based community concerns to him, and he will not only listen, but find a solution too. At the end of the day, I know he is our voice for public safety."
A grand jury is a legal body that is empowered to conduct official proceedings to investigate potential criminal conduct and to determine whether criminal charges should be brought. A grand jury may compel the production of documents and may compel the sworn testimony of witnesses to appear before it. A grand jury is separate from the courts, which do not preside over its functioning.
During My Four Year Term As A Hamburg City Council Member, This Privately Funded Website, Available 24/7, Provided Me A Primary Means To Communicate Useful, Meaningful & Interesting Information To The Residents Of Hamburg. It Also Informed City Residents What Was Taking Place In Our City Of Only (about) 516 Residents, By Their City Officials, How They Were Wasting And 'Throwing Away' Hard Earned Taxpayer Dollars.
As A Result, Interestingly Enough, This Website Also Became A Very Popular Website With Others Because Of Its Content, And Was Viewed By Visitors Throughout The Entire World !! For Those People, That Reason And Many Other Reasons, This Website Will Continue To Be Maintained, Updated And Flourish.

MARYLAND SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER PRAISED FOR PREVENTING SCHOOL TRAGEDY
"Our School Resource Officer who was stationed inside the school was alerted," St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron said during a press conference. "He pursued the shooter, engaged the shooter. During that engagement, he fired a round at the shooter. Simultaneously, the shooter fired a round as well."
The shooter was killed, but it is unclear whether Deputy Blaine Gaskill fired the deadly shot or the shooter turned the gun on himself. Either way, the School Resource Officer is credited with defusing the situation within a minute, Cameron said, potentially saving lives.
Deputy Gaskill, who left the scene unharmed, was widely praised for his action.

HERE'S SOMETHING INTERESTING
Soon after moving to Hamburg and long before either of us were elected to the Hamburg City Council, Chris Lund approached me and wanted us to alternatively go to City Hall and spend the day there to watch what the City Clerk/Treasurer did all during the day.
Because I thought such actions were devious and 'underhanded', I refused to do so.
McLEOD COUNTY SHERIFF
OFF DUTY AVON (MINNESOTA) POLICE OFFICER SAVES LIVES
SHOOTING MAN WHO INJURED NINE PEOPLE IN STABBING
ATTACK AT ST. CLOUD SHOPPING MALL;
RECEIVES CONGRESSIONAL BADGE OF BRAVERY
Five minutes after authorities received the first 911 call, Jason Falconer, a part-time officer in the city of Avon, began shooting the attacker as he was lunging at him with the knife, and continued to engage him as the attacker got up three times, according to police.
Avon Police Chief Corey Nellis said at a press conference Monday that he is “very proud of Officer Falconer’s heroic actions in confronting the perpetrator of the stabbing assaults of the Crossroads Mall Saturday.”
“Officer Falconer put himself in harm’s way to protect the public from a man who had already stabbed nine victims,” Nellis said, adding that Falconer was the “right person, at the right place, at the right time.”

More Than A Massive, Underhanded Ruse By The Other Former And Current City Officials, To Force Me To Resign From The City Council Because Of What I Was Discovering And The 'Issues' That I Was Raising Involving Those Other

It's As Simple As That.
But, Their Despicable Efforts To 'Force Me Out', Failed Miserably.
