Don't give them your money

To a great extent, it's been another of those years when Hollywood followed our sad, cultural direction towards victimization and darkness and away from creativity and entertainment.

Take your own advice

With the complicity of the TV talking heads, the current administration continues to be shored up. We are supposed to just look the other way over the worst financial condition since the one we solved by diving into World War II. We are supposed to play like the scandal involving the current administration and the deaths of law enforcement officers on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border never happened.

Just clean up after yourselves

Protest what ever you want, just don't break the law. And if you do break the law, take your arrest like a man and pay the consequences. If you don't want to pay the consequences, then don't break the law. But don't inconvenience the rest of us in the process.

Show us the money

Some federal officials are having a difficult time understanding the concept, perhaps because they spend way too much time with other bureaucrats and too little with the people who actually pay their salaries - but city and county officials around the nation are experiencing the best success in selling taxpayers on the need to spend.

Honoring EMS volunteers

The City of Hoisington has gone to great lengths over the past year to recruit and support a fine group of Emergency Medical Technicians. Several members of that community have made the commitment to go through extensive training, and to be on call for several hours a month in order to safeguard the community and those that pass through it. As their numbers increase, so does the reliability of the service, and that is to be congratulated.
