It occurs to me that many of us have double standards when we think about local jobs and keeping our hard earned money in the local area.
While the latest reminder is the ambulance service, and oil contracts with our county, how many of us are purchasing items out of town ourselves? Ask yourself: "Did I buy on the Internet this last year?' Could I have purchased the same thing locally, at the same price (or lower)?"
As a small business owner, I often wonder what people are thinking. Lets keep our dollars in town with local businesses.
