Cook County Newspaper

My parents have the Grand Marais newspaper sent to their home in St. Paul every week and pass it along to me after they read it. The Cook County News-Herald is a great small town paper and often has stories that make me smile. This week, though, they had a story that truly made me laugh out loud.

The November 30th issue had a story about the county website being upgraded to list property tax records online. There was some opposition to this, as the original proposal including the ability to search by property owner name. This was removed after reviewing other county policies in the state, but the final vote included two no votes:

“Commissioners Johnson and Fritz Sobanja voted against the proposal. Johnson said he couldn’t back the plan because of significant opposition he’s heard; Sobanja said he voted no as part of his ‘war against computers.'”

Where do I enlist?
