  • What's best for America

    There have certainly been a lot of disturbing headlines in the news this political season, and much of it is coming not from TV, newspapers or the Internet, but from my own friends and neighbors. During the past year, I have personally heard the following things being said:

    "That Mormon could never be my president."

    "I don't think it's a woman's place to be president, but I'd rather vote for her than that other one."

    "Barrack Hussein Obama would surrender Iraq to Iran as the very first thing he would do. How can you doubt that?"

  • We need to get along

    Economic development and tourism are two vital initiatives for any community. And because of that, agencies for both should work together to improve the appearance, opportunities and perceptions of our county.

    Tourism is what brings people to Taylor County. The Economic Development Authority brings industry, and with that comes jobs. Combine the two together ... and people can stay in our community permanently.

    It's a shame that there appears to be a tense working environment between the two. They should have open communication, especially working so close together.
