  • Prospect passes 2010-11 budget

    The Prospect city council passed a $2.75 million budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year, a $79,216 reduction from last year’s budget total.

    Cuts are anticipated largely across three expenditures – general government, police and public works. Mayor Todd Eberle said there won’t be a cutback to direct services such as garbage pickup or police patrols but rather a delay to nonessential administrative functions such as recodifying ordinances next year instead of in this year’s schedule.

  • Practice kindness

    The practice of kindness encompasses a range of small acts and habits that we know as old-fashioned good manners – saying “please” and “thank you,” waiting your turn, being on time, lending a helping hand, or cheering someone up with a smile. It applies not just to your relationships with other people. It extends to things, animals, plants and the earth.

    This practice also means being generous with your presence, your time and your money. Give freely without expecting anything in return. Just do it. Kindness is not a quid pro quo endeavor.
