Opinion: Lisa Barber-Taylor–My time at the Observer
I am not a fan of groups, group dynamics or myself in a group. I am typically uncomfortable and overly self-aware/self-conscious while in a group. Typically, I remain quiet and simply observe others when in a group, largely out of a sense of nervousness and mistrust. (I hypothesize that I never successfully integrated into a group in any of the situations of my life: grade school, high school, college, work, roller derby, dance class, art class, traveling, in the grocery store, not even in my own family at family dinners, birthday parties or get-togethers.) This being the case, I typically am not a joiner, as my dad calls it.
How Longmont’s Municipal Code is Managed
Longmont’s Municipal Code is the list of rules that govern how the city and the citizenry of Longmont work. The code is the sum of the ordinances passed by the city council, according to City Clerk Dawn Quintana. “An ordinance is the mechanism used to implement new local laws,” she explained.
