EDITOR: Am I business friendly? It depends on the business. Highly polluting 19th century technologies such as oil and gas need to be phased out. And big-box stores that come to town with minimum-wage jobs to take money out of our local economy are not welcome either.

What we need is socially responsible businesses that address the needs of the community. Those others can go to Texas. Or better yet, somewhere even warmer.
