  • When regulations serve a purpose

    I’m disappointed I have so much room this week for my column.
    After the report on Mike Aldridge’s rant at the city commission last week, I thought it might spark some contributions to the “Letters to the Editor” section.
    It has been a while since I last heard someone complain about mounting regulations and government intrusion into the private sector and all the mess it makes. I think I heard the subject raised more often this past month mostly in reaction to the statewide “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaign.
