1 Cheers to
the hundreds of brave souls who plunged into the lake this past weekend for Special Olympics.

2 Cheers to
the area citizens who are actively working with Mid County Fire Protection District to get the word out about the levy increase issue on the April ballot. We know this is a difficult choice for some, but the more in-the-know voters are, the better.

3 Cheers to
CHS theater students on their great performance of ‘Grease.’

1 Jeers to
county officials, who seem to continually get stuck on the process rather than on the action. We saw another example last week of how dealing with P&Z changes came down to semantics instead of actual substance.

2 Jeers to
whoever is responsible for inconsistencies and inaccuracies in flood plain mapping that have forced some lakeside property owners to purchase expensive and unnecessary flood insurance.
