Part of the team
A discussion of the future role of students in school district government eventually turned to the young man who had served as student representative during the previous year. It wasn't his first "term of office." As a representative of city council, he could compare the experiences. One of the main points was feeling part of the group. At the school board, students sat in the audience. On the city council, he sat at the council table. There was no question about which was the better experience, in his opinion. "I even had a name tag."
Time to go
The chairman of a school board committee was working his way through the agenda. After wrapping up a number of discussions that moved smoothly through the process, the chairman started to introduce the next topic as he looked to the paper. "We're moving on right to moving off."
The Spirit of Christmas
Sometimes, timing is more important. A governing group with an important job to do was checking on its schedule through the holiday season. One member noted they didn't need to be declaring blight on Christmas Eve.
Oh, to be young again, sorta
During the Halloween season, it is not uncommon to see many youngsters out-and-about in Warren County with their parents in full costume. Apparently this may cause some to reflect back on a time not so long forgotten. After seeing a group of young kids reach for some candy, one individual quipped, "Oh, to be young again." This was met with a few seconds of silence, before the person added, "Well maybe not that young." One reporter suggested starting again at 21, an idea that met with general agreement.
One if by land, too long if by buggy
As election results began to pour into the Warren County Courthouse on Election Day, it became clear that some municipalities were taking longer than others to get their numbers in. Residents inside the courtroom noticed this and quipped at possible reasons for the delay from a precinct to the northwest. One suggestion offered from the audience: "Maybe they are coming in on an Amish buggy."
