Shopping locally helps

One thing you might hear a lot of in council and commission meetings these days is the need for people to shop locally.

It is easy to go out of town for certain things we need, especially when we can get them cheaper elsewhere or when local businesses do not meet our demands.

But whenever we can, as often as we can, Chilton County residents need to shop in Chilton County. In the same way, all of the municipalities here need the support of their citizens.

You might not think your economic decisions matter, but if everyone will do what they can to support the local economy, it will add up fast.
