Shop local and support the businesses that serve your community

As a new small business owner, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of “shopping locally.” As a member of local chambers of commerce, I’ve met numerous business people who feel privileged to serve those in their community.

Why not turn around and support those businesses that are so eager to serve you? There are many reasons to shop locally. A few of them are:

1. It’s the “green” thing to do. (Less driving means less pollution.)

2. Tax dollars that businesses pay stay in your local community.

3. You will feel a stronger sense of community.

To help you find local businesses, go to your chamber of commerce’s website and search its member directory. Another option is to go to this paper’s online version and search in its business directory. I’m sure you’ll be successful in finding the perfect local business to meet your needs.

Oh, and thank you for your support!

    PSE Power Lines
    PSE plans to more than double the power lines in height and in voltage will not only increase the potential ills effects on our health in Olympus, but will destroy the natural beauty of our area. Our skyline will be blocked by these ugly structures, and the property values will impact not only the homes by the power lines, but for the entire area. Keep in mind that property values are not isolated, but reflect the demand for housing and the prices that future homeowners will be willing to pay.

    PSE unattractive power lines will deter many from buying homes in our area., so it behooves us all to get involved and fight their intrusion in our lives
