Posted: Tuesday, Feb 24th, 2015
Dear gentlemen:
We are asking you to put the drainage of the Rendezvous Center parking lot at the Goshen County Fairgrounds as your first priority for fairground improvements.

Letter to the editor: No local improvements needed

Whoa, hold your horses, Mr. Travis Pearson.
Wow, a Y and a newly-improved fairgrounds would be wonderful! But, hold on, maybe the property owners who pay these taxes you want to raise should be the only ones who vote on your costly "ideas."
As farmers, it's been a tough year, $3.50 corn just doesn't cut it! What happens when there
