As a state, county and local taxpayer --- I want a refund from Olympus! We offered all kinds of incentives based on the jobs that Olympus would be providing to the area. Now, 28 are going. Where is the refund to the taxpayer?

Move to the valley. Low cost of living and we even have a pizzeria. Great job Gumz! Good to see the move is working out well for the company. I wish all the former LI employees the best.
