“This town attracts a special kind of people who haven’t lost sight of what it is to be a neighbor. We are a community of honest, hard working people willing to help one another out and look out for one another. I saw this when I delivered papers as a young boy and I still see it today. If someone needs help, you get a lending hand. If someone gets sick, food comes to you every night until you are well again.”
