Avola resident loves Smurf blue

I would like to thank Brad Dohms and his wife for an excellent job in upgrading the Avola schoolhouse

Editor, The Times:

First I would like to thank Brad Dohms and his wife for an excellent job in upgrading the Avola schoolhouse.

Referring to the letter from Eleanor Deckert, it’s so easy always see the negative side. Yes, the tourists will remember the Smurf blue and they just might tell more people to come to Avola and check out the color. Which will help the businesses in Avola….

The pub will be happy serving up their famous burgers.

The gas station will fill up SUVs, cars, etc.

The motel will have tourists staying overnight.

The towing business will repair the tourists’ vehicles and get them on the road.

So maybe Brad will help bring more business in with his color of Smurf blue.

People in Clearwater must think there is only one person in Avola. I thought after the work was done on the schoolhouse, Eleanor would quit writing stories and more stories about nothing.

There are about two Avola residents concerned about what happened to the school and there are a lot more than two people in Avola.

So, Clearwater please take back your paper and let’s see what is happening in your neck of the woods.
