All politics is local

Went to the city commission meeting this evening. Things generally went smoothly. Conservation club chicken dinner signs, fine. Personnel manual revision for part timers, OK. No problem with Lions Club signs. Agree to settlement on millions of dollars of taxable property value, smooth as silk.

Propose a parade route for homecoming at the local high school that differs from the traditional route...... CIVIL WAR!!! By the time the smoke cleared the commission had denied the new shorter route and approved the classic route, -both by a 3 votes to 2 margin.

It seems a small town high school is not just the high school, it is a center of the community's social structure.
