A solution for airport security
I have a simple solution to the current airport body search flap sometimes referred to as being “felt-up.”
Have two planes ready for the same destination, one for those with safety concerns and a strong desire to land horizontally and not vertically and the other for those who just “don’t give a damn.”

Can Briggs get the job done?
After the nomination/appointment of Mike Briggs to the Planning Commission was tabled on Nov. 22, I decided to look him up on the web. After doing do so, I have some concerns about his ability to be a team player serving the city.
I found several negative opinions against council – in particular, Jon Russell. Briggs seems to be on a vendetta against him. I do realize that we all have the right to freedom of speech, but I have concerns about an individual that cannot handle their comments in a more diplomatic way. The use of four-letter words is totally unacceptable. Using gutter language not only lowers business standards, but creates animosity as well and creates an unworkable environment to get things done.
In the past, I worked for Cisco Systems (10,000 employees at that time). I was hired — not only for my qualifications — but for my ability to be a team player. I was the project engineer for several products. We had to work together; there could be no dissension in a group, no emotional negativism. The focus was to get the job done in the most effective way possible.
