The July 13 issue of Newsweek has a story regarding the clause in the stimulus package, which requires using American made iron and steel in stimulus projects and the impacts that has had on foreign relations.
Allegedly, the Chinese government is displeased with this action. I, for one, want to compliment Congress for such action.
I can imagine that this may have caused some hurt feelings, but I am excited that Congress put such a clause in the legislation.
I began writing this article to make you, the reader, aware of news and events surrounding the business community of Craig and the surrounding area.
I decided to do this because I am a proponent of shopping locally.
I think there is a substantial impact that can be made by shopping locally.
So, as you read my column each week about local businesses, please think of how you can shop here, in Craig, and assist in making that impact.
