Viewpoint: Goodstock crowd continues to be considerate

On July 5th Good’s Candy Shop held its sixth annual Goodstock. This event features live music, food and a car show. This year was a record turnout with 120 cars on display and over 1,200 people visiting.

Success in business is measured by profit and longevity. This event reminds me that on some days’ success is measured by something else, people. I’ve said many times we have the best guests in the world and you proved it once again during this event. After all guests, car owners and bands exited we were left with cleanup. It did not take long as there was not a single piece of trash left anywhere! It was as though no one was ever here. It is like this each year. We do not list any rules or regulations for conduct, parking or anything else for that matter. You continue to be respectful, kind and very considerate. We appreciate how you practice the rule of reciprocity at Good’s Candy Shop. We work to provide free family fun and in return you show us wonderful support. I’ve been in business a long time here in Anderson and finding success is no easier or difficult than it would be somewhere else. Business is difficult regardless of where it is being conducted, however; it is you, our people who make the difference.

We do not expect or take for granted community support, it is earned, just like anything else of value. We place a very high value on you and will continue to work to earn your support.

I wish to thank Precision Collision, GEO Maintenance and Prairie Farms for their support of this fun day.

Thank you for a wonderful Goodstock event!

Randy Good

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.

  • Letter: Wall Street should not be in politics Talk about corruption, ponzi schemes, we're looking at you, Wall Street, controlling the prices of our food, gasoline and clothing we must buy and about every company in America — while trashing President Obama, the Affordable Health Care Plan, along with every Democrat, to influence our elections, at the same time.

  • Viewpoint: Law trumps compassion on immigration problem As I was watching a debate on the immigration problem, the "build a fence" participant appeared to lose considerable moral ground when his liberal counterpart said, "There is a high moral ground … I would like to have an open border situation. It would be good for this country …. " She summarized by saying we ought to be a "compassionate nation."

  • Viewpoint: Damming river will affect entire state One proponent of the White River reservoir construction says that if you are opposed to damming the White river then you are one of the few and are loud and irresponsible. His support of the reservoir offers no facts or referenced success stories, only rosy predictions of what he wants you to believe that it could be.
