Crook County’s population increased last week with the arrival of 35 newcomers to the area. The new arrivals, however, won’t be paying any taxes or driving any of our roads.

In the bad old days of the Soviet Union, it was the practice of the Communist government to embed a political officer with every military unit and aboard every Soviet ship. The duty of a zampolit, an abbreviation of the Russian phrase "deputy of the commander for political work," was to operate independently from the military chain of command, enforcing party discipline.
