Letter to the Editor: What booming economy?

This is a letter in regards to Jacob’s opening paragraph from the article about the EDC (published April 27).

The opening paragraph is this: The booming national economy hasn’t made it easy for rural communities to attract new industries and well paying jobs.

‘Booming National Economy’.

Where exactly do you live Jacob? We are on the verge of a recession. There is absolutely nothing about our economy that is booming. When it costs on average $175 to fill my pickup with diesel that is not a booming economy. Have you been to the grocery store lately Jacob? Just the every day cost of living is through the roof. Please clarify for your readers what exactly a booming economy is. Because honestly I don’t think we live in the same country. The country I live in is not booming. It is being destroyed.
