On Tuesday night, some members of the West Point Board of Selectmen crossed that fine line between utter incompetence and gross absurdity.
Weâ€™ve seen this board pull some in the past, but Tuesday nightâ€™s motion by Ward 5 Selectmen Jasper Pittman, which called for the city to retain an attorney who would be tasked with looking for improprieties in the May 7 election is not only absurd but in this editorâ€™s opinion is an insult to the taxpayers of the community.

I just thought that all of us momâ€™s could use a little shout-out today.
We truly have the toughest job on earth. If you donâ€™t think so, youâ€™re either not a mother or youâ€™re simply not very good at it.
I would like to take a moment to thank Mrs. Wendy Fuller, our former Clay County Election Commissioner for all of the hard work and years she has put in with the county.
On Thursday morning, the Clay County Board of Supervisors voted to dismiss Fuller as an Election Commissioner. The vote was 3-2.
The board had a tough job to do, and they did it the best way that it could have been handled.
The circumstances surrounding Fullerâ€™s dismissal should not blemish her overall record of service to the citizens of Clay County.
