Wasting Money



Someone please tell me I’m mistaken when I read the newspaper, advertising the FLW National Guard Western Division Fishing Tournament.

I read that some of our local companies are contributing additional financial awards, however, today (Saturday), I saw four National Guard (gaily painted) motor homes parked at the (Comfort Inn).

Am I the only person wondering why our tax dollars are being spent for a fishing tournament when we desperately need help on our border to Mexico and the drug lords who are killing innocent people daily?

I was raised in the fishing world, but highly resent the government wasting even more of our money during this time of hardship.
