Letter in praise of

local business owners

I’m not writing to complain about anything or to ramble on about some big issue important to the state. I just want to mention someone who many of us have come to depend on and too many have come to take for granted.

Jeff and Carrie Hanson have owned and operated Jeff’s Downtown Service for I don’t know how many years. It’s one of those businesses that doesn’t get a lot of attention. Nobody comes to town to stay at Jeff’s or have lunch there. But on more winter mornings than I care to think of, Jeff’s been climbing into a cold truck to help the rest of us start our frozen cars or plow our roads and lanes. He’ll replace a fuse — and charge you the price of the fuse. He’ll change a tire, fix a chainsaw or give you some free advice when an engine’s not working right. And even on occasion one of his sons will give you the right answer to a sports trivia question.

In short, Jeff and his family are among those people who keep this town going. At a time when a lot of small towns are looking for ways to stay afloat, maybe we ought to take the time to thank those who are already here.
