Look to the future
I'd like to comment on the meetings being held about not wanting a box store or any big thing to run businesses out. Those same people should read The Dispatch back in '57 when the mayor, the council and everybody said they didn't want the state hospital in Brainerd. And yet people 25 years later are having town meetings that they don't want it closed. People can't look into the future far enough to know that things are good even when they don't think so.
