Coroner’s Office Needs Experience Not Excuses

Dear Editor,
County Coroner Emma Hall finally released the office’s annual reports for 2011 and 2012 this month, both delayed, she said, because of antiquated and sometimes inaccurate computer systems. That sounded more like an excuse than a reason to me.

It turns out there was a 100 per cent turnover in the staff after she took over the office, and then there was a 35 per cent turnover of the new hires. That may have had more to do with

Good Omens From GOGO & The Gov

By Joseph Lekarczyk

The Board of Trustees (BOT) met on Tuesday night this week because of the Presidents’ Day observation, and it was a light agenda; only one first reading of an ordinance, and a couple of items under general business. It looked like it might be an early evening (out before nine o’clock), but that’s always a trap. Discussions and reports tend to ramble unabated because in
