Boarding? County about to come a-knockin'
Bernice Ende: In it for the long ride

Deficit of trust

I’ve finally figured out what’s wrong with me. (And it’s not just me.) Larimer County’s minor-by-comparison, and stubbornly-never-ending horse land use dispute is part of a much bigger problem. Businessweek’s Chris Farrell hit the bull’s eye in his article, “The Most Damaging U.S. Deficit: Trust.” Did you know that only 22 percent of those surveyed -- the lowest in half a century -- trust their government? I suspect the percentage is much higher among boarding stable owners around here. Without trust, this country’s prosperity and well-being become questionable. Read Farrell’s article to learn why. I wonder: Once lost, can trust be regained?
