What are the chances that anyone could come up with a Clatsop County issue that all of the following could agree with: all five city mayors (Astoria, Warrenton, Gearhart, Seaside, Cannon Beach); the Clatsop County commissioners; all five city councils; the school districts of Astoria, Warrenton, Jewell, Knappa and Seaside; and the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce.

I was born and raised in Clatsop County, and never in my life have I seen such agreement on anything. We always seem to let our petty "hang-ups," stupid jealousies and North versus South mentality get in the way or working together and making good decisions that affect our entire county.

Wouldn't it be amazing if voting "yes" on the Clatsop Community College bond issue turned out to be the first step toward erasing the Mason-Dixon line forever? Just think what we could accomplish.

The time is right. Vote "yes" for the bond issue to build a new campus for CCC.
