Editor:

At a time of the year when we should be displaying good will to all of our citizens I was dismayed to read the story in the Dec. 19, Star-Tribune wherein the cities in Natrona County and the county commissioners could not agree on using the money from the state that was set aside originally for a convention center. I would rate the projects being discussed by the priority of human impact and there are three that have very high human impact: 1. Public safety radio tower; 2. Repair of the water line to Midwest/Edgerton; 3. An additional road for ingress and egress to/from Evansville. These three total approximately $1 million, which would leave some excess for uses to be considered at a later time. I suggest that these three issues need to be agreed to immediately because of their impact to humans. Seats at the Events Center, ice for the ice rink, and park/playground equipment do not have the same impact; these items are, in my opinion, niceties. Our present financial situation does not really have room to give consideration to niceties; we have to concentrate on necessities. I would also suggest that any money left over from the state money be set aside for the future human impact needs of each of the municipalities, i.e. the county as a whole.
