Cheers & Jeers: Practice what you preach

A reader sends jeers to Front Royal town officials:

"One can't miss the Downtown Business Associations message of "Shop local, buy local," except maybe the town officials.

"I was disheartened to read that outside movers were used to move the town offices. It is not uncommon to see outside contractors doing work at local shops. One must wonder why, if they want us to keep our spending dollars local, that they don't they do the same? I checked the phone book and we do have local movers, painters, lawn care, etc.

"So practice what you preach and spend your dollars local so we can in turn do the same."
