I lived down south for a number of years and there was a little town that was was a lot like Richwood. It had once been a quaint little city, but over the years it was forgotten about in favor of the neighboring big city which was growing rapidly. Within about 15 years, people started to get tired of that rapidly growing bigger city. The drugs and crime there became far worse than they had ever been in the little town. So, very slowly they started working their way back to the smaller city. Rent was cheaper on commercial buildings and houses. A lot of the buildings were in need of repair, but for the money they saved it was still a good investment. A lot of them were little businesses to start with: a flower shop, a dry cleaner, a little art supply store, a feed and grain, etc. But just those few small businesses were enough to inspire other businesses to move to the community. Today, that “little town” is experiencing tremendous growth, so much so that they have had to build several additional schools. They have managed to preserve the integrity and history of the town, but also to move it forward. This was no easy task, they negotiated, gave tax breaks to encourage business growth, sought out grants to improve the appearance (and therefore appeal) of the town. But it worked. If we took even half the effort we spend complaining and redirected toward doing something positive here…I can’t imagine what we could accomplish. Some of you look at this town and see trash, but I see a world of potential.

If you see a world of potential, then you have never been to a city council meeting!!!! I have seen grade school children act better towards each other!!!

Yeah, you are right about that. Maybe it’s time to vote for a new council. Then maybe we can start making some progress. I talk to a lot of other citizens who wish things were different, but they feel like they can’t get the council to help or agree to anything. :(
