More wasted federal tax dollars. If the sheriff's office needs a new trailer, the people of Craighead county should pay for it.

I don't care who pays for it just as long as they get the equipment they need. I have seen them in action on a recovery and it was a bad scene all around. The body was recovered in the nastiest water that I have ever seen.

Those guys def. don't get paid enough to do what they do.

That's the ignorant mindset that has driven us into $14+ trillion of debt.

The reality is that we've stolen that money from our great-grandchildren who will still be paying it off 50 years from now.

We need to change our thought patterns and reliance on federal government. It was never intended to pay for local necessities. While some may be happy that a few thousand federal dollars were spent here locally, they fail to realize that billions of dollars are taken out of our state and spent in big cities for things like the underground interstate in Baltimore (the big dig).

Federal government was instituted for very limited, specific purposes. We must reduce the size and scope of it to what it was originally intended for, or we'll suffer the economic collapse that we are on the brink of.
