With the advancements of technology today, if I need a book it can be found on-line, and if I want to purchase it chances are I can get it on Amazon.com for less than I would have to pay in late fees at my local library. The best solution for this library situation is greater cooperation among the schools, college, and existing library for greater access. The current generation of young people doesn't use libraries for information gathering, they use computers. If you ask most youth, they tend not to read books, yet spend hours reading and communicating online.
The main focused of the local government should be on energy and repairing preexisting infrastructure; to create an environment that is more conducive for business to grow. One thing the community could focus on is creating cheap wireless access that is available to everyone. Do not spent and create the liabilities that will haunt generations of taxpayers to come. The federal government already spends half a trillion dollars on the interest of the national debt each year.
My question to everyone is when are we going to learn to live within our means, rather then focus on the short term and make decisions based on emotion and fear instead of rational thought?
