Editorial: ‘Past issues,’ ‘past problems’ of V’ACTE need resolution

What’s so unfortunate for Weir is that all of these “past issues” have fallen squarely in his lap. He is being looked upon to provide solutions to problems he clearly did not create. He is being tasked with removing a cloud about the fiscal practices of V’ACTE when he is clearly an advocate of transparency and propriety.

Commentary: Cottonwood a mighty charitable town – with your tax dollars

Crucial to City Council benevolence needs to be a realization of whose money the city is being so charitable with. City government does not generate money, nor does it earn it the way you do.
