Doing necessary work

This past week we carried a story on our front page that described how a step-father took a belt to his teenage daughter; this action was and is inexcusable.

We appreciate the efforts of every manager and employee who has come up with cost-saving measures to help county employees keep their jobs or not have their earnings cut.
