Writer regrets the end of Cedar County

   Having been a supporter of the movement to create Cedar County, I was truly disappointed to receive a letter from the Cedar County Committee informing me there is no longer a possibility of forming a new county and that the committee has been dissolved.
   The Supreme Court's decision stopped all new county efforts by taking a constitutional right from the people and giving it to the legislature. The Cedar County Committee did a great job, I'm grateful for their efforts on behalf of the rural citizens and sorry this is how it had to end.
