Planning, fair articles were tops

Congratulations to The Free Press for two wonderful editorials this past weekend.

The first, is The Free Press penned Our View on Sunday morning was perhaps the best state of the city article I’ve read. Thank you for this excellent summary of vision as it embraces reality.

Your advice to elected officials and your readership, is precisely correct. The most difficult task as an elected official is the paring of long-term vision to the stark reality of volatile funding mechanisms. This an issue that needs to be addressed on a regional basis in the very near future.

Secondly, Mayor Anderson’s editorial on the Blue Earth County Fair was the best piece of local Americana that I’ve read. His summation of a historical public gathering, brought back many memories of not only place but also of its primordial function.

Thank you Free Press editor and Mayor Anderson.
