Shopping Local: Why? / Next Year!
Marcus Washington, of NewsChannel5, covered Robertson County this past week with a story on the importance of shopping locally:
Succinctly, because it benefits the community in which YOU live.
It is almost a companion story to the piece Jim Bellis had in the Robertson County Times earlier this week.
Anecdotally, this piece asks local leaders and businesses what their thoughts are of the economic outlook for 2011. "Cautious optimism" seems to be the theme here in Robertson County.
As relates to both stories, it so good to see Robertson County in the news in positive ways.
On a side note, whenever I see Springfield's downtown/courthouse square on the news, it always goes to show me how fortunate we are to have such a proactive group of downtown merchants, businesses and professionals who have worked so hard to maintain and preserve such a vibrant and beautiful square. Time and again, when I see other communities on/in the news, we shine that much more.
