August 6, 2008: Business should not be threatened

in

To The Editor:
I stand and applaud last week’s editorial on the unnecessarily contentious situation that has evolved over the Halcottsville bridge reconstruction and the current threat of eminent domain.
I challenge the county to come forward and explain why it continues to threaten a business, a local tourist attraction and historical landmark in the face of viable alternatives. We need to enhance our assets rather than destroy them. Why do we keep shooting ourselves in the foot?
