Letter: Make better use of old buildings

Published 12:22 am Saturday, September 19, 2009

Has anyone ever heard the old saying, “keeping up with the Joneses?” Well, it seems that McKinnon Motors and Stokes Automotive are doing just that.

To me, this was just a waste moving out close to the Interstate. My point is I hate to see so many empty buildings around and about the town.

It seems the City Council and the mayor are doing nothing to get more business in our buildings.

To me, it seems over close to the Interstate would have been a perfect place for a shopping mall or K-Mart or something like that since Wal-Mart is always so full.

My time is up. I thank you for yours.
