(BRANDON HANSEN/Managing Editor of the Chewelah Independent)
The saying goes that money is the root of all evil, but let’s be honest, if that were true, we would all be lining up for an escalator downstairs to the basement level of the afterlife.
Money can be used for a lot of good things from public works projects, paying our first responders and law enforcement officers who protect us, to obviously providing the needs of families and people. If I didn’t have money, I couldn’t buy all those snacks at Safeway that seem to be expanding my waistline.
Maybe a better way to look at it would be money is the bacon grease of society and gets everything moving, but can be a bit messy. Something that has bugged me as of late is all these cottage industries for a wide variety of … things… yes things … that have popped up with the intent of just getting and spending money.
