It’s sad what we are becoming.
Not every news story is an indication we are on the way to big city blight, of course, but that’s exactly how small town communities like ours slip away. Little by little, we pave our own road to ruin—all the while making excuses. “One more hotel. One more highway lane. One more tax hike.”
We only get one chance to mess this place up.
Don’t let it be on our watch.
