My husband and I attended the city council meeting regarding the cannabis buffer zones around our schools. I was impressed by the young people who spoke at the meeting. I’m very proud of them for stepping up and voicing their concerns in front of a large crowd, they did a fantastic job.

I hope that despite everyone’s differing opinions, we can keep some sense of decorum and focus on keeping our town clean and safe. We are blessed to have this beautiful mountain to call home, let’s take care of it.
