We just don't get it.
Several in the community have said they're upset that the City bought a new ladder truck for the fire department.
Did not everyone in town see the fire at the former Fruit of the Loom building? We should be grateful that Adair County had its own — and didn't mind helping us.
Not even counting that building, we've got Jackson Tower, the new Judicial Center, the courthouse, several motels, Main Street businesses, local schools and other buildings that are tall enough that a ladder truck would be essential in fighting a fire.
