Farming family good for community

-A A +A

A Readers’ Hotline caller expressed negative reactions to the story, “Farmers Cultivate a New Life in Grayson.”  
Unfortunately, the article did not include the fact that this gentleman spent 22 years as a Navy Seal, serving our country with distinction before working five years in the corporate world.
His wife also served four years in the Navy prior to her career in the restaurant business.
The grant he referred to is for the Independence Farmers’ Market and targets education on healthy eating for local children.  
We are lucky to have such friendly, skilled people moving into our community and doing what they can to promote healthy farming and eating. They are here to contribute to the community.
Let’s welcome them instead of criticizing or assuming the worst.
