Easymark: Wild Animals Fight Over Mill Carcasses

Easymark: The way developers are devouring up old mill property reminds me of wild animals fighting over a carcass. I am surprised by the lack of comments and the lack of empathy for these hard working folks of our town. I was especially angered by the comments of the Mayor. Why should she be overjoyed by this news? I bet De Armond employees are not so excited about it. When Tom Richards sold to Stimson he said he found a buyer that would treat the employees like family. I guess money is thicker than water.

DFO: Easymark’s comments about the transformation of the historic mill sites on the water are among the best comments of the week. They influenced my thinking re: the editorial I wrote Sunday about the sale. Rather than an exuberant piece looking forward to an education corridor after Chesrown takes over, the editorial focuses on the need for the community to ensure that the middle class and low-income families aren’t forced out of town by all the ritzy places and developments clamoring to be built. Thanks for your comments and long-time friendship, Easymark.
