Cheers to volunteers, the backbone
of many organizations and meaningful
initiatives...and to administrative
professionals...and to laboratory technicians
It is a week of recognition in Crookston as we celebrate National Volunteer Appreciation Week, Administrative Professionals Day and National Laboratory Technicians Week. Cheers to volunteers, administrative professionals and laboratory technicians who share their time and talents to make our town a better place live and work.
Each person who falls into one or more of these categories possesses certain personality characteristics including a friendly disposition, compassion toward others and a whole lot of patience in order to successfully fulfill their role.
Let us all look toward their fine examples as a way to treat others in the workplace, at home and around town.

Jeers to politicians insisting on
acting like politicians, months
after the attack in Benhazi
Jeers to the people who do not admit their mistakes so things can move along.
It's been approximately 7 1/2 months since the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya on September 11, 2012. There have investigations and hearings of the sort and it's still not conclusive on where the blame should rest concerning the lack of sufficient security that was requested before the incident.
However, there are now reports from Republicans that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed her name on documents that reduced security for the building. Of course, she and other White House officials have denied it and are backlashing against the Republicans.
This whole thing has been a mess from the very beginning and reeks of a cover-up, including when the White House had denied initially that this was a terrorist attack.
It doesn't matter what went down with the security aspect. Someone made a mistake somewhere down the line. Can't they just own up to it? Everybody makes mistakes.
Good grief, no wonder no one likes politicians.
