Navajo tribal leaders need to stop acting like children and resolve their power struggle over a Boys and Girls Club on the Navajo Nation, The Farmington Daily-Times says in an editorial today.

The paper writes about a dispute between local tribal leaders and the tribe's central government. The Nageezi Chapter wants more control over the club but the Navajo Nation won't let it be run independently.

"What is happening is basically a tug of war between two organizations each wanting control," the paper says. "While this battle for dominance is going on, it will be the children who depend on the club who will suffer.
