I chuckled when I read airport security closes down at 8 p.m. If you are not through security by 8 p.m. you are the loser.
Now we find out that airport officials and TSA officials will try to talk more to each other in order to make sure passengers can get through security and to their gate if they have a departure flight after 8 p.m. They are in the same building but their business operating plans took off on different airplanes.
The concern has been overtime for security workers. How about meeting the needs of the traveling public who pay an arm and a leg to get on an airplane? Try out a little creative scheduling of security workers in order to serve the flying public instead of getting home in time to watch the new fall schedule on TV. They must not have heard about all that business acumen down the road at City Hall.
We may be the "big" city in South Dakota, but we still are little town America where airport services and security close down at 8 p.m. and the city lights start flashing at 10 p.m. Mayberry Falls has a ring.
