Email News Alerts

There have been ads for Christmas shopping on TV since July. I ordered wrapping paper and wreaths from schoolchildren a month ago. The city crews put the lights on the trees on Main Street this week. It seems all is on schedule for the holiday season.


So, it must be time for the "Shop Local" editorial piece.

I'm tempted to stop right there. How much more can really be said? This is a really simple idea.
