    I would recommend the city quit sending any money to the state for economic development. They are using our money to develop the Des Moines area. If you asked any of the state member about Mason City, they would ask where is that and if MC is in the state of Iowa. If we are going to send any money to a state economic development, sent it to Minnesota, maybe they would throw a few project they don’t want towards us. Iowa economic development never once considered a town outside the Des Moines metro area for an of the tech developments (yahoo, google, Facebook). Most people say we done have the work force, but the work force will follow the jobs. It is time to start taking care of ourselves and not rely on others. Clean out the chamber of commerce, there track record is not good. They are more concerned about image of themselves then prompting the north iowa area. I would recommend Mason City get in touch with leaders from Fort dodge, marshalltown, Oskaloosa, and many other struggling communities and work together to find a way to overcome there struggles.

    US businesses added 312,000 jobs in December, well above what economists expected and underlining that the American economy remains strong despite recent market turbulence. The unemployment rate rose to 3.9% as more people were looking for work. It had been at a 50-year low of 3.7% for three straight months.

      By the Grace of God go I… Do you hear yourself ? Just be thankful you are able to afford to eat and drive and live your life freely. I challenge you for to go to the Community Kitchen and volunteer for just a day. I would hope it would change your heart. Apparently you are clueless on why people in this community are poor and hungry. I have volunteered and made it a priority to understand and get to know some of the folks. Examples: Widowed seniors with only about $ 650 a month of Social Security. They have to pay rent, utilites, food, medicine, household supplies, gas for their car/ insurance , clothing, doctor bills etc.. If one little thing goes wrong, they cannot afford the basics. There are a great number of persons living with a serious and persistent Mental Illness. Again, poor, and needs to be met. They do ride bicycles or walk to the Kitchen. I visited with a single mom with 4 little kids, who’s former spouse was extremely abusive .and is now in prison for those crimes against the woman and children. There are a number of poor, homeless, and Veterans with a mental illness, including PTSD.. You wouldn’t believe how blessed we really are after watching and listening. I will never forget the lady who was asked if she buy a raffle ticket for $ .25. Her answer was, ” Oh no, I couldn’t possibly fit that into my budget this month “. I found myself humbled and ashamed of everything I take for granted. So, maybe you could drum up a little compassion and try to walk a mile in their shoes for just one day…And hope that never have a financial, mental or physical crisis, I would hate to see you at risk when riding your bicycle to the Community Kitchen…

    Fences make great neighbors. Build the wall!! Bricks and mortar, steel and wire. Cameras, drones, infrared, motion. $6 billion is a small price to pay. We have a multi-trillion dollar economy, time to be honest, grow up and admit we need border control. A country without borders is not a country much longer.

      It is amazing to me that the party of fiscal responsibility has no cares about our deficit now that one of their own is in the WH. About 3 years ago you all howled constantly about the deficit under the great President, now when the not great president is daily increasing the deficit to record levels, you care little for deficits.

        Sadly, the current Republican party is more concerned with social conservatism than fiscal responsibility as their past members were known for.

        If there is any doubt, just look at Robert Vander Plaats,a modern Repubilcan leader in Iowa. He would gladly trample our Constitution (equal protection clause; due process; ect) just to bring about his own version of American society. And then lie to the voters of Iowa about it.

        It’s no wonder that so many who were sound Republicans of the 60’s and 70’s have declared themselves Independent today.

      Here is one Democrat who would support reasonable efforts to create better borders. However, “a beautiful concrete wall” or “a wall of beautiful steel slats” will not work. If you have ever fenced a pasture, you know this won’t work. The people around the President also know this won’t work. However, he is so beholden to his base that he can’t get out of his own way. He can’t even tell the truth on what he really wants. “A wall—no a beautiful fence..”. No wonder Pelosi is now referring to it as a beaded curtain.

      For once, President Trump, be honest with us. Tell us that Mexico will not pay for border security, that it will be on the backs of American taxpayers and then move on to a design supported by Border agents, which includes technology and more agents.

      Make the USA secure.

        You are one of the majority of Democrats who want better border security, myself included. The wall is a terrible waste of money as you say but it doesn’t matter to the right because their president says he wants it. The right wing wackos will say anything to demonize Democrats as evidenced by one particular Anonymous poster on this site. I am surprised he hasn’t started in on the above posts by now.

          Mr President, Although the Democrats interrupted the Border Security Meeting and would not listen, We, the Citizens of the United States, would Love for you and Secretary Nielsen to go “FULL BLOWN PUBLIC” with your report! Then the Citizens could see what the Democrats are doing!!!

          If Pelosi cared about doing her job and looking out for the Legal US citizens who pay her salary she and all the other members of Congress would not have left on vacation, they would have stayed and done their job! That job is to protect our borders and the Legal US citizens it protects but they don’t care! They still get paid even when they don’t do their job!

    How is it so hard to figure out. Our houses have walls and doors with locks to keep unwanted visitors out. The elite have tall fences around their compounds but a wall protecting our border is unrealistic. All the democrats that don’t want a wall should take the doors off their houses if they feel so safe.

      The true elite do not have walls around their homes. They utilize a combination of technology and guards to be safe.

      Walls can be penetrated. The beer, over, or through. And walls cannot be built in all terrains. I want secured borders
      , but give it up on walls. Didn’t work well for Berlin, did it?

    The story about the schools overpaying drew a lot of comments but I didn’t see a single one of someone asking, if these people we overpaid by 2.2 million, were their wages cut to what they should be after this was found out or are they still getting the illegal monies????
    What about it MATT can you find out????

    President Trump and he refused to sign on and asked for 5 billion. There are walls all over the world between countries and they work. The Border people of the USA want and have wanted a good wall system fThis appropriation bill had no dollars for the wall; the conservative Republicans in the House talked with or years. Look at all the Democrats that, including the present leadership that have voted for a wall in the past.
