Letter about population...


Mon, Mar 9th, 2015
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Last week’s editorial commentary on population came at just the right time for me to make a couple of comments.

I had just returned from spending a few days in Atlanta. I was told the city and surrounding area contains as many people as the entire state of Minn. They seem to make it work with their six lane highways; that is six lanes one way and six the other. It is a great place to visit, but it’s good to be get back to Fillmore County.

My mother told me of a memory she had from around 1900. Her father was in a discussion with other adults who were concerned that the way the population was growing there would not be enough food to feed everyone. She became concerned as a young girl.

So, the population increasing or decreasing each year has its own set of problems. If you haven’t read the commentary from last week, go back and read it. Lots of food for thought.
