  • Respect Yo City

    People are noticing the City of Asheville’s new, enameled urban streetscape trash bins are already getting messed up. Small towns are always easier to manage, and people tend to respect each other better, but I was in a very nice town about a week ago where citizens sponsored stone…

  • Go Ahead, Make Ray’s Day

    Polk County leadership wants a new jail, and Commissioner Ray Gasperson thinks some more financial planning might be in order. It did not seem wise to make such a heavy investment with almost no financial planning, such as setting aside a certain amount in a few consecutive budgets a…

  • Haywood County Government Actually Listens to Libertarians

    We went through stuff like this in Asheville about a decade ago when I was paying closer attention, when I actually thought a difference could be made. It is not unusual for government documents to say things that can be interpreted by a reasonable person to allow somebody with evil…

  • To Put Money Where Your Mouth Isn’t

    Then again, a role of government is to pay for things the citizens do not support enough to fund with their own resources. Following an abysmal private-sector attempt at fundraising, the Jackson County Commissioners approved spending another $205,635 to leverage a $200,000 NFL grant for artificial turf at Smoky…

  • Role of Government

    Might does not make right; money does. When I was wee, I was taught this country was supposed to protect citizens from such things. Today, the papers are flooded with articles about how government should promote homosexuality and beer because doing so brings money into the community. If I get…
