Quote for the Day…
A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. ― Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Great Falls Homeless Issue
- The Western Word Poll
- Reading Assignments
GREAT FALLS HOMELESS ISSUE:
There was a push from one city commissioner and others in the Great Falls community to let it be known that they are unhappy with the homeless issue in Great Falls and to maybe fine a church for letting the homeless use their property.
I watched the city commission session online from 7:00-9:10 pm and I was impressed with how big a heart some in the Great Falls community have.
Many who spoke at the city commission meeting favored the work done by a local church to help the homeless.
By the way, I support the church for helping the homeless.
As I have said many times, we need compassion and leadership to deal with this issue.
There were some problems with the stream for the commission meeting. I lost count of how often I had to reload.
I was not impressed with one commissioner who will go unnamed. He is way over his head on most issues.
On the other hand, I was impressed with Mayor Bob Kelly’s leadership, and I was impressed with Commissioner Joe McKenney for his thoughtful questions.
After this meeting, I feel the community will not let those with hate dictate how we will help those less fortunate.
Let’s show some compassion and leadership – working together we can address the homeless issue.
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
Now that Super Bowl LVI is complete, this week’s poll question asks, “Should the Monday after the Super Bowl be a national holiday?”
Results will be posted later this week.
