City Without Limits

Wednesday, January 14, 2004

The sign reads "City Without Limits." Boy, is that right!

There's no limit to what the City Council will do to the town people (their friends and neighbors) to make up for their huge mistake with the Army Air Base.

There's no limit to increasing water rates and decreasing salaries ... there's no limit to hearing neighbors talk about moving out of McCook.

Most of the time, it's an honor to have your home town recognized as No. 1 but not in our case. It's embarrassing and insulting.

McCook has nothing to keep our children here after graduating from high school and with everything going on, it's going to be hard to keep the middle aged and older people in McCook.

What about the people who are living on Social Security? Who can't afford to pay the high taxes on their homes? A lot of them are going to have to sell the homes they raised their families in.

How sad for the people of McCook to have to endure such hardships just because our City Council, "Our City Fathers," don't know how to run a business. Yes, It's a "City Without Limits," and may God have pity on us all.
