Franklin County Passes Budget

A budget has recently been passed in Franklin County. Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer says a majority of the revenue the county brings in is from sales tax. Griesheimer says that’s why the Enhanced Enterprise Zones proposed around the county are so important.
“The only way were going to get out of the economic problems were in, is were going to have to grow out of it. And obviously the more people we put to work, the more money that’s being spent in the county, the more jobs there are, the better off we are.”
The 63 million dollar budget was unanimously passed this week.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
