I am thankful that the political warfare that Benton City experienced at city hall not so long ago has stopped. Rather than wasting taxpayers' money on frivolous lawsuits, our little berg is now prospering.
If you haven't visited our "one-horse" town, I invite you to check out our quaint little hamlet. You will see new businesses and a much improved atmosphere. We have a state-of-the-art medical facility, a pharmacy and even a family dentist in town now! These are in addition to our other wonderful longtime businesses and churches that we love.
Working together helps everyone. Fighting is a waste of time, energy and resources. If our school district and school board would follow this example of respect and unity we could use what precious little money we have on students rather than lawyers.
KATY STORM, Benton City
