Taking the high road

We need to all work together.

That was stated, nearly verbatim, at two government meetings the past week and on different subjects, but the theme was the same – we’ve got to move beyond the arguing and onto the business of the people.

The city of Port St. Joe and the Board of County Commissioners, in particular, along with the quasi-agencies and agencies they represent have got to learn to play well together.

PSJ city commissioners said they would set aside their focus on a proposed new bay front park in order to concentrate solely on moving the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to the city.

The president of the Chamber of Commerce implored unity with the BOCC as the struggle to bring jobs to a community badly in need of them continues.

The city’s decision was predictable as it is going to need help moving that lighthouse within the next six months.

The task seems an enormously burdensome one from the feds in tough economic times.
