What are we doing by sending our future on down the road. Why would we want to continue making trips out of town to buy things that we could be buying locally if we had the store here to buy and save money without the expense of extra fuel and extra time out of our days or nights to make the travel time. If we had stores that meet our demands, as a Community that is trying to grow and become a community that will attract young people and old as well. Our young folks have to move away to find things that are new and exciting to do or places to buy their supplies for building their futures here. Supplies for housing, remodeling and clothing or electronics for our people that are the IN thing. Why are our leaders not listening to the community and what they want? Why would they stop progress that would help our community better it self and grow? Take a vote in the paper as to how many travel out of town to do shopping? Whether it be for food items, building supplies, name brand clothing, nice sit down eating places. When they shop out of town they buy eats out of town, gas for the car and lots of times stop at the stores that we do have just because its there where the other stuff is being bought and once on the road to come home they make the trip all the way home. If we had the stores Here in our own town the money and taxes would stay locally and help our community grow instead of always helping the other communities around us grow while we remain small. "" Build it and they will come. ""
