Sedgemo,

County owns the Airport so Airport employees are county Employees. Other folks that work out there are Airline employees etc. Its the diffrence of working "at" the airport and working "for" the Airport.

gettinold 3 years ago on Our View: It sure beats a snack box

If 3 wire is not covering itself the Airport they can put it out to bid again, one of my restraunt owner friends said the start up costs would be to big to consider putting forth a proposal. However in the future is the county puts it up to bid the operator wont need to purchase every cup, fork and plate. Most Airport inprovement projects are FAA funded so I doubt this is costing the local taxpayers an excessive amount. A good first and last impression is important to the visitors to the valley. The Airport is looking good and somthing we can be proud of, it was only a few years ago when the parking lot was dirt and you stood in line in a tent to check in. That was Mayberry.

If we follow fome of the "logic" above our soilders should buy their own bullets and Firefighters should buy their own helmets. Rhys is your stance wait til someone is shot then we could consider it a reasonable expence. I understand for you all government spending = bad . To quote you ludicrous. If you can do this so much better than everyone else step up an run for office, prove it. But I believe you are happy to sit back and complain.

Dear Pilot,

Thanks for the contact info for Northwest Airlines, do you also have numbers for Pan Am, TWA and Eastern Airlines?

Ok, lets avoid the smoke and mirrors stuff here, cops bad, MMJ good. Is there anyone on the side of MMJ that believes that the system is abused and that some/most/all who have a card have a need for MMJ. It was not legalized. I belive there is a genuine need for MMJ and that there are legitimate uses however the issue has been abused by people with stubbed toes. Not just cops, I know plenty of individuals with similar maladies. Is you are for MMJ it seems to me you should be against this manipulation of the system as it can make those with a real need seem like it is less genuine as it creates suspision on the entire issue. If you are for legalization, move directly towards that goal and not back into it through a loophole.

I didnt see anything about a raise. Instead of returning them to 40 hrs or increaseing their hourly with a raise they call it a cost of living "bonus" so it is not obligated or expected next year. I think it will be years before there is a 40 hr workweek or raises and I think it will happen slowly when it does. One of the little mentioned things about the 36 hour workweek is before if an employee worked over it cost overtime, now ther is a cushon so when an employee has to stay extra, it doesnt cost as much as it used to.

gettinold 3 years, 2 months ago on Our View: Medical marijuana centers should be banned

yvb,

do you really think the cartels read the pilot, and that they dance in the street? or perhaps a little fear mongering is going on here?

thanks Scott for pointing out the diffrence between advertising and an editorial opinion, I would have thought it to be obvious.

It seems this particular debate will be won by whoever shouts the loudest and most often
