Question: It’s open forum week. What’s on your mind?

• There should be no more extensions for the Legion and VFW to smoke in their buildings. You’ve had a year now. The city should be out there putting an end to this ASAP. They need to follow the rules like everyone else. And if any other places are allowing smoking, they need to be stopped, too. There’s no smoking in all public places.

• I’m amazed how many school board and commission seats are coming open, including North Newton and  the Hesston mayor. The public needs to vote these people in.

• I think my favorite Christmas movie would have to be “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It’s a good show that just reminds everybody how important they are, regardless of how small or insignificant they think they are.
