Double the "Shop Emporia First" advertisements on the local radio stations and spend ten times what we are spending on chamber and visitors bureau ads in the local print outlets. Perhaps we could add an additional penny tax to local sales so we could afford several studies on parks, recreation and tourism too. This, along with stone entrance monuments at each of the cardinal direction leading into Emporia, should soon drag out of the slump we are in. If that fails, give the city manager a bonus and continue to turn a blind eye to the mafioso tactics of the RDA director and his "Deals they can't refuse...or else" tactics. Soon we will become the city that we all deserve to be.

well said REWBA, but you forgot to add a new chevy for each city commissioner, and make sure the shocks on them will withstand the damage that all the rest of us are doing to our vehicles by driving commerical and all the other streets, the gravel roads in Bushong are smoother then the streets in emporia. FIRE ZIMMERMAN, AND HIRE A CITY PLANNER, but this city commission we have now wuld never vote to do such a thing because one who works for the gazette, sorry i ment to say walker would not be qallowed to for for it, nor would nelson

Right on, REWBA. I can't wait to see the hordes of tourists who don't care what they spend on gasoline, all over our streets, money being spent at every store and restaurant. Yes, indeed. Then all our streets will be fixed and we'll be happy, happy, happy.

Ummmm, did I get that right Mr. Mayor?
