Letter to the Editor: Do the hustle, Glen Rose!

Kathryn, thank you for sticking with Glen Rose. We need your voice and your opinion!

The City and County accomplished several noteworthy things in 2012 and I made attempts before the first of the year to tell the world about them. You are right. Now it is 2013 and we must look ahead.

I had prepared to comment on each of your challenges/opportunities individually but,I kept coming up with the same answers.

Get involved! Show pride in your community!

Support our leaders! Vote,volunteer and select the area or areas where you can be of best service.

Then do it and good things will happen. We have to “Make Things Happen” to improve our community.It is up to all of us!

These are areas that I have selected:

Vote for a Hospital District.It is the only viable solution to ensure continued quality medical care in Glen Rose.

Support and work for Economic Development to create jobs,improve business and strengthen the local economy.This “opportunity” is the solution to most of our “challenges”.

Support and promote Barnard`s Mill, the River Walk and, especially, the revitalization of downtown. Always with preservation of the character and quality of life.

I will close with a quote from Abraham Lincoln: “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
