Shop locally and improve your community
The benefits of shopping locally can’t be overstated. When we spend our money at locally-owned businesses, we’re often reinvesting in our community. The dollars spent at local stores, shops, restaurants, garages and other businesses tend to remain in local circulation, boosting the local economy and keeping many people in jobs. Various studies have tried to quantify the benefit. The York County Regional Chamber of Commerce estimates that 45 cents of every dollar spent at a local business stays within a community, compared to just 15 cents of every dollar spent at national chains and other non-local businesses.  And when we support our local businesses, they often return the favor by giving back to the community.

Correcting history: How Vietnam vets were embraced
Why is it that the American people rejected our troops who served in Vietnam? We know all about the protests not only against the war, but against those who served. Why were there no demonstrations of support? Why was there no welcome home parade? What if what we know about Americans’ lack of support for our troops in Vietnam is wrong? Impressive evidence has been revealed showing what we thought we knew was wrong all along. The media have a great deal of control over the events that we think about. We only know about current events that get reported. When events are omitted from the record, history is effectively changed.
