"Shop local" is more than just a nice slogan, it's a sensible idea for all of us, and not just because of high fuel prices.
This week I had a late emergency with a favorite family horse.
The feed store downtown, after receiving my panicked phone call, stayed open in time for my mom to run down and get the needed supplies.
Over the past 23 years of living here, my family and I have had other local business personnel go that extra mile.
As we near the holiday season, I hope everyone will shop local. There are no mail delays or traffic problems and you'll be helping our local economy.
