Shutdown slows search for woman at Idaho national monument - CBS News

Shutdown slows search for woman at Idaho national monument
CBS News
And the Butte County Sheriff's Department tells CBS News some monument staffers and personnel from the department did start looking for her again.
Courtney Cashman's insight:

This article was about Jo Elliot-Blakeslee who is 63 and missing at the Craters of the moon national monument. Since the government shutdown, no staff was able to search for her Tuesday morning since staff at the park technically aren't allowed to work because of U.S. Laws. Her friend, Amy Limkert, who was with her had died of exposure on Wednesday. Elliot-Blakeslee has been since last week. She is still missing and the family is asking for volunteers and experts to help find her. 

 

My opinion on this article is that the staff members shouldn't have been delayed to search. This is a serious problem that needs to be solved. The staff members should still be payed to find this helpless woman even though chances are slim that she's alive. It's cruel that they arent allowed to even volunteer either. This woman has a high risk of dying and I think the people who are in need of help are more important than following the laws.

This article is an example of penis problems of the shutdown of jobs, The woman needed to be helped and it not fair that her process was slowed, because of the government shutdown. It's problems like these when people get upset and start protesting and complaining. If the government wanted less trouble, they should've provided this struggling woman with the help that she needed.
