Letters to the editor Cartoonist view
Voice of the people
Transparency in government
A declaimer before this letter: I am writing
this because of talk on the street I have heard of
late. I am being kind in my remarks, to what the
street talk is. No accusations meant, just some in-
formation needed to explain our current financial
situation.
Transparency is a word thrown around a lot
lately when public officials talk. It is important
for the taxpayers to be informed when so many
are living off the taxpayers dime.
I was in attendance at the city council meeting
when the news broke that the city had a $800,800
deficit. Shock by many on the council is an
understatement. I observed the expressions on
their faces. Some might say fuzzy math, others
say mismanagement and others, incompetence.
What is the answer? Nearly half a million dollars
in overtime pay to our first responders, because
of three shootings? I didn’t know our police and
firemen were understaffed that much. We are 10
officers short from the authorized 70 at the police
department, but I was not aware of a fireman
shortage. I am not critical of either department
and am thankful for their dedication to keep us
safe, but how long has this drain being going
on? Transparency? All I ever heard at the coun-
cil meeting was, sale tax revenues were down,
but nothing about a growing deficit until it was
made public recently. This makes one to wonder
what else is going on. Our infrastructure needs
addressing, but if Columbus is running this kind
of deficit, we’ll have to live with potholes in our
streets and other maintenance being neglected.
With the integrity of some in leadership in
question, now Columbus has the competency of
others in the city government in question. I love
Columbus, but expect more out of our leaders. If
taxes are raised, which is inevitable to get us out
of this mess, let us have some transparency and
more accountability from city leaders. It is our
money you spent; transparency and answers is all
the public wants.
We need to work together, but we need good
leadership to get us out of this mess.
God Bless Columbus.

Comments in recent shootings
Friday’s paper had an article in it about two
recent fatal shootings of black men by police offi-
cers who were responding to “shots fired” calls.
In both cases the police apparently mistook the
black men for the criminals when they actually
were the “good guys” responding to crimes com-
mitted by others.
Some are going to immediately jump on the
bandwagon “Police are racist gunning for blacks”
or just simply cry “racism!” without looking at
the whole picture. Don’t misunderstand me, both
of these deaths are tragic, and should have not
happened, but you cannot just blame the police or
“whitey”.
When the police arrive on scene and see
anybody holding a gun, they immediately want to
control the situation. If they say “Drop it!,” then
comply! They will thank you later.
Who is to blame for the deaths in these
situations? Do you really need me to spell it out?
The vast majority of violent crimes reported in
the news are young black men shooting others:
black, white, doesn’t matter. If the black commu-
nity would step up and help get these thugs off
the streets, attitudes would change, fast.
Having a license/permit to carry a concealed
weapon does not make a person capable of han-
dling such incidences. It is good when a “good
guy” can help, but it’s the job of the police to
apprehend the “bad guys.” I applaud these two
black men for trying to help, and wish things had
turned out far different. We are all responsible
for our own actions, so think before you act.
This is the time of year when crimes spike.
Strong-arm robbery and thefts are on the rise
because of Christmas shopping. Be aware of your
surroundings and stay alert. Think ahead. Don’t
be a victim of the Grinch.
Have a Merry Christmas.
