It's great that our state and local government are cutting back on the spending. It's what we need in order to get through these money crunching times. we are doing the responsible thing as painful as it may be for us. Later on down the financial road, maybe we can add some spending but for now you are probably doing the best thing.

I don't live in Tippi. Co. so I don't know if you want a comment.
Some of the Kernan-Shepard items are water under the bridge but a single County executive instead of a council should be looked at a very long time for reasons beyond money. For example, we could have had a landfill in our county had there been only one administrator who only cared about the money. Thank heavens we had several who cared about not receiving Chicago's trast. The dump was not allowed.
Secondly, think about libraries that are closing (or will close) because they are in small towns and don't have the required population to make them eonomical. There are many elderly living in these small towns that no longer drive or don't have personal computers that use the libraries. There are youngsters whose parents have limited means that use library computers. What kind of replacement for these uses are going to be made available locally for the people that currently use the small libraries?
Just a thought.

I understand what your saying. Sadly, we are all going to have to make sacrifices in order to cut budgets. It's all of Indiana.
This whole mess is due to greed in our financial system. It's a shame for sure.

Becky, libraries are mostly funded by private donations...stop expecting the government to do everything for you.
As for landfills, that always makes me laugh...everyone wants a place to throw their trash away but nobody wants it in their backyard. Fools.
