The first report by Detroit's emergency manager declares that the city is broke and at risk of running completely out of money — a financial meltdown that could mean no paychecks or pension benefits and even deeper cuts in municipal services.
WASHINGTON — Congress on Thursday passed the stiffest restrictions on banks and Wall Street since the Great Depression, clamping down on lending practices and expanding consumer protections to prevent a repeat of the 2008 meltdown that knocked the economy to its knees.

Strong financial reform is needed as never before. Left unregulated, too many financial institutions and wealthy corporations have become irresponsible and arrogantly self-serving.

The time has come to demonstrate a maturity that takes into consideration the common good.

The government’s response to the financial meltdown has made it more likely the United States will face a deeper crisis in the future, an independent watchdog at the Treasury Department warned.
The problems that led to the last crisis have not yet been addressed, and in some cases have grown worse, says Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. The quarterly report to Congress was released Sunday.

I can understand Loren Kittelson’s frustration with city government (referring to his letter to the editor published in The Jamestown Sun on Dec. 4).
In September, an official copy of a resolution passed by the City Council for a $75,000 Flex PACE interest buy down loan to Dean Hafner was on my desk for my approval signature several times. Each time I returned it to our city administrator, Jeff Fuchs, to have Jamestown/ Stutsman Development Corp. provide adequate financial documentation from Hafner for our city records. This information was not forthcoming.
