Let Us Know What Is Happening
To the editor:
I thank our mayor, Patrick Degen, for his excellent article in the Democrat last week. It was thoughtful, compassionate, and provided a pleasant reminder and challenge to all the residents of Emmetsburg and Palo Alto County.
Mr. Degen, I am certain that you are aware that business wise there are a lot of activities in our town and county that affect our lives in so many ways. Could you help in bringing us up to date on these business leaders’ thoughts and projections for the new year. I am thinking of wind energy, Poet, Kerber Milling (now Standard Nutrition), the casino, the city of Emmetsburg, Iowa Lakes Community College, the hospital, Aluma, Montag Manufacturing, Woodford, and the many other businesses that support our community and county with employment, tax dollars, retail sales, our schools, and churches. As you go about visiting these places of businesses, please let us know what is happening.
