It all comes down to good people.
Some communities try to better themselves with attractions or festivals. Some place all their hopes in economic development or tourism or some historical claim to fame. All of these things certainly can benefit a community, but at the end of the day, the value of our hometown is dictated by those we call our neighbors.
I was reminded of that last week as I drove past a couple on Hwy 155 who were spending a cool day picking up other people’s trash.
