A look at how one town-- Culpeper, VA-- thinks about where and how to give charitably, and whether paid staff overlaps with volunteers in some cases.
"The proposed FY14 budget allocates $95,000 for Culpeper County Volunteer Fire Department Co. 1 on West Davis Street and $25,000 for Culpeper County Rescue Squad Co. 11 whereas the request was $250,000 and $100,000, respectively. At both meetings Thursday, councilmen questioned the theory whereby the county's paid staff answered calls side-by-side with volunteer companies." --Allison Brophy Champion, the Star Exponent
