It just gets dirtier & dirtier. This letter has been in the makings since your February 26, 2001 Journal, page 5 says, "apparently, the current county engineer, Steve Voight, was hired for a one-year probationary period that is non binding for the county." That means the county does not have to retain his services as a regular, full-time employee after the one-year term, nor does it have to give good reason why it does not desire to move him into permanent status. Doesn't this mean our commissioners have a back bone and are possibly doing an excellent job. They deserve a pat on their backs, instead every week this paper continues to keep making trouble for them. And then going on about the 1 month experience that 2 new ones had and many papers have made dirty comments about the experience of 3 or 4 combined. It does seem like something is bugging you. What is the problem? Are you mad because you lost the bid for the county legal paper?? It's really unfair to get one side when the commissioners Are Not Allowed to tell their reasons on front page April 2, 2001 Journal says "Something smells fishy" page 2, then May 14, 2001 there was 2 pages of questions and answers with Steve Voight and last column (top) he mentions 5 year plan. Everyone's red flag goes up. Why then didn't you ask the question, what is in the 5 year plan? Could it be what was in the 5 year plan - just was not good for Fillmore County. You have control of what you write and what gets printed. Could it have been land use? Everyone smells something. In another paper May 28, page 10, I think the word tabloid journalism what Randy Dahl had say was true and to the point. (and it came from a new commissioner) I say hats off to Randy. Please would you quit your digging always about the commissioners. Just what does a one year probationary period that is non-binding for the county mean. It states just that, a child would understand this. Think before you put it in printing.
