GUEST COLUMN: Chronic complainers should consider Crestview’s strengths

Published: Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 10:55 AM.

Sometimes I am amazed by the sheer ignorance of some of the comments and letters you receive.

Your newspaper does an excellent job of explaining things happening in the Crestview area in simple, easy to understand articles. Do your letter writers just not read them all the way through? Did they sleep through civics class?

"Krystal, mall hold-ups part of a pattern" (June 1, Page A4) is typical of this ignorance.

Does the writer not understand that Austin has 820,000 people while our area has about 30,000?

Does he really expect that restaurant chains and chain stores will flock to an area less than 4 percent the size of the city he visited?

If he wants the services of a big city, he needs to move to a big city.

In one of the many new phone books dumped at the end of my driveway this month, not counting fast food places like McDonald's and KFC, I counted more than 40 places at which to sit down and have a great meal without having to cross Shoal River.
