Letter: Pulled one over on us

Pulled one over on us

Well I see the Good ole” boys slipped another right past everybody; ( Dollar General ) that is. There was no town meeting or vote or anything; it was simply “Done.” We need another Dollar store like we need holes in our heads, as it is we have two or three of these things now. What we need is a department store, which we have been fighting for since Ames left ... There was no shock when the announcement came that Don Lorenz was building this store; some things never change in this town.



I was just as shocked as everyone else, but that is one business selling to another. I'm not sure they need to check in with the community since it is currently zoned commercial. I will take a busy vibrant building over an empty building any day of the week. I'm with you - I don't believe we need this particular store, but if it gets someone to buy the old Friendly's and then someone wants Lunts and Federal Street picks up with retail/restaurants - I'm all for it. Again, we have numerous empty buildings. I don't think we are in any position to pick and choose.....sorry to say. I'm still happy something wants to come!!
