Dale e-mails Mr. Answer Person: "In your report of the extended deadline for paying property taxes, you indicate that all Winneshiek County offices will be closed on Good Friday.  Why would government offices be closed in observance of a religious holiday?

Mr. Answer Person says: "It's a religious holiday in the sense that the county workers prayed they wouldn't have to work that day."
