Enter to Win a Pair of Tickets!<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> In the United States, the use of both medical and recreational cannabis—as well as CBD medicinal oils, tinctures, and creams—has been a hot topic, both federally and for states, for years now. Many states and, subsequently, companies have endorsed the use of these “alternative” beneficial medicines, recognizing that they help people suffering from chronic conditions like epilepsy, PTSD, cancer, and more. When considering that opioid treatment has proved to be leading factor in depression, addiction, and an ever-increasing overdose rate around the country, it seems that the movement is here to stay, especially as society increasingly accepts the use of CBD and cannabis for medicinal purposes.With tangible benefits to countless Americans, it’s all the more important to support a company that delivers the highest-quality product to those that need it.

6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Andy BealeA study by the Consumer Federation of America and the Credit Union National Association on planned holiday spending found wide gaps between high- and low-income groups.The groups surveyed 1,009 people on their financial situation and how much they’re planning to spend this holiday season. Based on the results of the survey, they expect holiday spending to fall this year nationwide, but they also found big differences between the planned holiday spending of the rich and the poor.Thirty-seven percent of low-income respondents said they plan to spend less this year than last year, compared to only 19 percent of high-income respondents. This indicates that low-income Americans are less likely to feel their financial situation is improving than high-income Americans.The study also found 63 percent of low-income respondents, compared to only 21 percent of high-income respondents, said they were concerned about debt payments. And 83 percent of low-income respondents said they did not have extra funds available to cover an unexpected $1,000 expense, compared to only 13 percent of high-income respondents that said the same. continue reading »

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Wellington City Council member John â€œB.J.â€ Tracy made a stunning announcement at the end of Mondayâ€™s work session meeting.Tracy has resigned from the city council. He was just starting his third year of a four-year term.John TracyAt the end of the council work session meeting, Tracy read the following letter.â€œIn August of last year, my immediate supervisor passed away unexpectedly from a medical illness. I was offered, and accepted his position of 911 Director â€” a position with far greater responsibilities that requires a large amount of attention and energy to fulfill.Â When I ran for city council in 2013, I did not hold these responsibilities, nor did I anticipate the events that would lead to my appointment as 911 director.The City Council position under normal situations, one that I had held previously, was one I could easily hold. However, we not face numerous surmounting challenges: the challenge of keeping the hospital open and viable, finding a solution to the dilemma at Wheat Capital Manor, and balancing the budget to prevent revenue losses in the utility fund while at the same time maintaining service and repairing our aging infrastructure.All of these are requiring a large amount of attention and energy to find solutions for. This does not mention the increasing strife among governing body members themselves, as we must find a way to disagree constructively without damaging each other and the community as a whole.As a result, I do not have the energy to fulfill both positions. I am concerned that if I continue, I will be doing a great disservice to the citizens of Wellington. Therefore, I am submitting my resignation as city council member.I am proud to have been a brief moment in history when Wellington elected its first woman mayor, and regret that I will not be able to serve with her and other newly elected council members. I am confident however that you will find a replacement with both the dedication, and time and energy needed to solve our immediate and future problems.â€Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password?

You will be missed. Caroline & Darrel Report Reply 0 replies · active 274 weeks ago +17 Vote up Vote down Guest · 274 weeks ago I am sorry to see Mr. Tracy resign. These next few years will be difficult for our City Council, Mayor and residents due to budget issues. At this time we are anticipating an increase in the cost of utilities and an increase in property taxes. Our water costs recently increased. A proposal I would like to see the council consider in light of the budget issues is discontinuing the practice of making low interest loans to a select few businesses. I support being “business friendly” and wish to see all Wellington businesses thrive. I am pro-Wellington and pro-small business. However, I, along with others, firmly believe the City of Wellington should in no way be involved in making low interest loans to a business. In the past few years I know of at least two existing businesses who were provided low interest loans for a period of 10 years. Those monies are currently tied up in loans when we could be using it to replace money transferred from the Utility Fund. The money is also unavailable to us for use in promoting and enticing new business to Wellington. As far as I can tell, only a “letter of credit” was supplied at the time the loans were granted; the loans were made without the benefit of the City of Wellington receiving anything in the way of collateral. Providing loans to a business is in direct competition with local banks who are also trying to survive in this economy and are experts in the field of banking (loans). In the future I would propose that any money or incentives available for economic development and growth NOT be provided in the form of low interest loans. Perhaps other incentives, such as tax deferment or tax reductions could be given for a limited period of time. I am not an expert on incentives to lure or keep business in Wellington, so I am unsure of what could be made available. There should be formal, published guidelines and criteria documenting the City of Wellington’s return on the taxpayer’s investment via any type of incentives provided to a new or existing business. That documented criteria should include that new jobs will be created as a result of the City of Wellington’s participation/investment via whatever incentives (NOT LOANS) are provided. I submit this comment respectfully, not critically, as a suggestion to our current City Council and Administration who have a tough job ahead of them. I hope we can watch them work together, without the benefit of name-calling and pettiness, to lead a growing Wellington to success for our families and future generations.

Banks are a gold mine of a business as they take your money and make tons of money on it not to mention loans, overdraft fees, ATM fees and “service charges.” I do think small businesses get enough breaks and should pay their fair share of taxes even if it is fairly low any income generated through taxation at this point would be beneficial to the community at large. I think the structure should change from time of service to the community. For example if you open a business your taxes should be fairly low as most new businesses have more short term debts while establishing credit worthiness with a vendor. I think that if after 2 years a businesses taxes are increased slightly for the next 3 years and then reduced to a level rate (Call it tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3) with 3 being the set rate then you can really leverage more tax revenue. If something happened that you needed additional tax money for some reason you could select a particular tier to increase or increase all 3. The benefit of this is not creating a massive burden for everybody. Your tax level could still be below a tier 2 if you are a 3 and 1 can be lower than 2 still. Kind of like earning your taxation rate through performance. Crazy idea but it could work ! Report Reply +17 Vote up Vote down M.L.Cody · 274 weeks ago You’ve done a great job.Thanks.Best of luck.

Some people have no common sense or tact in recognizing this is not the place or time to moan about the city financial status.
