I am amazed at all the fuss over the Cowgirl coffee establishment. There is no shame in being a barista, no matter what you’re wearing. I’m sure if the dress code bothered them, they would find work elsewhere. Calling what they do degrading and refusing to call them baristas is degrading and insulting to these hardworking women.
I have to respectfully disagree with Greg Brown’s opinion on the police blotter section. Though I can see where he is coming from, I actually enjoy the humorous spin put on otherwise mundane and often ridiculous crimes occurring on a daily basis in our community.
I think being a barista is a fun and honorable job, but I cannot call the ones who show their bodies baristas. The truth of the matter is, it’s degrading to the girls. They are selling themselves cheap.
I know our Auburn police work very hard and try very hard to serve the public. And some of the newer officers have great public relation skills. But some of the older and higher-ranking officers have the old-time “us (police) and them (Joe public) attitude.”
Each week I read the Auburn Reporter and have become more disappointed with one specific aspect of it. The disrespect toward our police department in the police blotter section is shameful.
Once again, the citizens of Auburn have stepped up to help the Girl Scouts show our military how much we care for them. Auburn Girl Scout troops surpassed last year’s total and sold nearly 4,000 boxes of cookies to be donated to our U.S. soldiers stationed around the globe.
