These sandbox officials are so busy trying to get their own way they forget the whole world is watching, not just locals. Their antics, as reported in the media, have been commented upon by many all over the state, broadcast on news stations and included in “weird news” columns online. A wonderful way to present our city as an example of one that wants to attract new businesses and jobs!
We have a new highway being built with an interchange into our city!
We have had visits from foreign dignitaries scoping us out! We have the chance to put behind the mistakes of our forefathers and finally be called something other than “Logantucky”! If I were a business person and I saw these things being reported about a city I was considering expanding my money into, I'd hit the door running. To quote the late Rodney King, “Can't we just all get along?”
Think about it and grow up!

Process should have been open
The League of Women Voters of Cass County is dedicated to citizen involvement, the democratic process and the openness of government. We are writing to express our concerns regarding the manner in which the Cass County Parks Board was abolished. We want to be clear that we believe the process was legal. We do not believe the council exercised its opportunity for open government. It appears that the council made decisions that were predetermined by some without the knowledge of all.
Openness in government is one of the basic tenets of our country as well as our community.
The League of Women Voters of Cass County is not questioning the outcome. That is not our mandate. We are, however, voicing our concern that this issue was not handled in a manner that promoted openness, disallowing increased community knowledge and input.
