New County Job Posting for Public Works Director
Work for the least professional County in Colorado...Elbert
County is an Equal Opportunity Employee Tormentor

The title doesn’t jibe with the new county org chart which shows a new job called "Assistant County Manager for Public Works"...but hey, what's in a name.

In this legislative season, when lots of bills and resolutions are floating around in the Congress, it’s a good idea to tell your Congressman or Senators exactly what you think about a particular issue.

All you need to do is pick up the phone or crank up your email and politely give your name and zip code. The staffer who answers will be happy to pass along your concerns. If you’re afraid to talk with a staffer, you can leave a voicemail message.

Don’t worry; they probably won’t call you back. They have your opinion and that’s enough.

Urban America is different than rural America. Give yourself a few moments to loudly say, "Uh...duh." This is a topic that could fill books, and so to have it as the subject of a blog entry is limiting. It needs to be looked at in terms of its impact on the American persona in a day and age where our country is nearly as divided as it was before the start of the Civil War.

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the Country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war" - Abraham Lincoln
