County to spend $1 million more

Fueled by the rising cost of doing business, the Custer County Commission is proposing a 2017 budget of $8.813 million, a 7.9 percent increase over last year’s budget, or around $1 million higher.

None of the county departments have requested a dramatic increase in funding, but nearly all departments will see a slight increase to cover ever-rising costs of insurance, wages and utilities. The budget was set forth at the county’s July 20 meeting.

Air conditioners said to be a bigger threat

Sometimes you just can’t make things up. Speaking in Vienna last Friday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life on this planet as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State. It kind of reminds you when Sen. Bernie Sanders said climate change was “directly related” to the growth of terrorism in the world when he was at a Democrat debate in Iowa.

We can sort of understand how Sanders came up with his questionable conclusion, but have to really wonder about Kerry’s threat analysis from Vienna. We actually have not seen any particular brands of refrigerators or air conditioners shooting at people or blowing things up.
