On Editorial: Time for a truce

Do not have Larry Neu as one of the reps. He seems to be a major sticking point. Also, all participants should bear in mind that it is not likely any of them will be around in 25-yrs., so come up w/ an agreement that will stand the test of time. Perhaps it is time to bring in a professional mediator?

I have been to many of the negotiations between the City and the VFW and frankly the City has been very upfront in the negotiations with Mr. Neu speaking on behalf of the VFW. Even at the last council meeting, while Mr. Neu, Quartermaster of the VFW was not selected to speak on behalf of the VFW, he ended up getting up and basically taking over the conversation from the Guy Bradshaw, commander-elect of the VFW and allowed his attitude and temper to override the good faith that both the council and the VFW were working towards to see if there were any points that they could find common ground.

The VFW is asking for the moon and seems to want the citizens of Craig to pay for their launch vehicle and the fuel to get there and back. Sit down and figure out what will work and absolutes as to what will not work. Sounds as though both sides have done that and are now at an impasse; 3canines is correct, get a professional mediator involved with the absolute agreement on both sides that whatever the mediator decides, is the legal and final decision moving forward.
