Resorts should join forces to help pay for marketing

Dan McDonald
Staff Writer

Sometimes my job can be tough.

Maybe that is because I actually have two of them: Reporter by day; small-business owner by night and on weekends.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m having a blast reporting the county’s news. And I equally enjoy building campfires and tracking down extra toasters, pillows and wine glasses for my guests at Camp Layman.

“It’s 10 p.m., do you know where your children are?” was the question asked on nightly television, usually about the time of the evening of curfews, which based by county or city ordinance, was either 10 or 11 p.m.

We also need to recognize the efforts of all school personnel — from the bus drivers to the librarians, the maintenance workers to the administrators — who, each year, do more with less.

The larger community, which is always so generous with scholarships and other forms of support, deserves credit for helping to shepherd our young people through the tumultuous waters of adolescence and into adulthood.
