The train does bring tourists to Stearns. How many of the train passengers go anywhere but Stearns? Most are bussed in on a tour bus or school bus, shop at Sweet Kreations and eat in Stearns and leave. Not much help to anybody but Stearns. Just sayin'
truth is

From what I have heard, the tour bus people are not allowed to shop anywhere else but sweet kreations, they have to sign an agreement to that fact. If the new pottery shop starts making money, sweet kreations will start selling the same stuff, its what they do.

Yes, as far as I am concerned they can stay closed. The new owners need to know how to cook. I dined there with a group from the school system, not only was the service bad but the food was equally bad.

I heard that the tourists that come by bus have to sign a contract allowing them to only shop at sweet kremations and no where else.

If I am correct, the tourist commission is run by the owners of sweet kreations. How convenient and underhanded is that?

I read a while back in the paper that the ladies at sweet creations said they didn't have time to give out tourist information to the tourists since the park service pulled out of the depot. Thats pretty bad when you are in the tourist business and don't have time to answer the tourists questions or at least direct them to other attractions.

Now I read on here that the owners of sweet creations run the tourist commission, what are they trying to do kill tourism for the whole county?

Key element in this discussion: "What you read here". That's your food for thought, as the old saying goes.

Sadly, Topix is really nothing but an outlet for cowardly people to use anonymous names while they're spreading rumors and hearsay. Most people around here don't use it for positive reasons, but purely for doing everything they can to start trouble for somebody else...

If you want the REAL truth, you have to either go to the targeted individual(s) and ask questions in person, or make a phone call to inquire about what's going on. Find out for yourself instead of blindly believing what someone says on here is the gospel truth. It's best if you keep this in the back of your mind while cruising these threads..

Don't swallow anything that gets said on here without chewing on it for a little while first....

Ain't that the truth, even you aren't using your real name. Thing is that I have spoke with tourbus groups that told me they couldn't shop in any other shop and other people have witnessed the same thing. Walt had facts too, it was in the paper. I will go through my old papers and post the exact quote and date for you then people can chew on that "for a little while".

Thanks for the advice.

Thank you, "Agree". I'd like to see the newspaper articles if you can find them for me. I really enjoy downtown Stearns. More so in the past, but time has a way of changing things. Not so often for the better, either. Thanks for your reply and hopefully you can find the article for us to read. I've been saddened that the area seems to be having so many 'inside' rifts going on.

I got the article right here so if you don't mind I will post it. Here is a quote from Barb Edwards of sweet kreations found in the Voice newspaper on Thursday, Feb. 2nd, 2012.

"We love and want to help tourists, but, when so many people come in asking questions about the park, it ends up taking away my employees spending time on their own jobs. We want people to have a good experience but not at the expense of our business and customers."

Both sentences of that quote were built around the word "but". In other words they don't want to be bothered with helping tourists. They don't want to take the time to help anyone.

As for the "rifts" you mention, yes it is very sad but (there's that but again) they are brought about by poor management and blatant lies told on good people.
