I believe someone from McKenzie won the $1000. Cathy Patton won the $500 for the merchants drawing. Do you think it was unfair? Did you check with the chamber? Were you a merchant and bought a sign to put in your yardsale to be eligible for the drawing? Just wondered if you think something was done unfairly.

Oh piss off and deal with it. And no its not all that keeps the county going, last time I checked there are plenty of businesses still open. A river for commerce and fishing, and so on. It just adds to the community and draws in ppl that usually wouldn't spend money otherwise. Plus gives ppl the chance to turn unwanted items into treasures. I don't like the traffic either, but I cope, because I made a lot of money this weekend. Jmo. But sick of ppl bashing Benton co. Like its a hell living here. If so, then move out...that simple!

Thanks! I completely agree! The traffic is slow, but so am I as I drive by looking to see if I want to stop! The yardsale is advertised for months in advance; if you live here you know it is going to be labor day weekend! if you don't like the traffic, plan something for this weekend or get all you need on Thrusday and just stay home!:-) Stop Griping! Most of us love it!

They live in a little delusional World of their own making. Nobody else can go there, thank goodness, and that's a good thing, IMO!
