Some of us actually like living in Spring Grove, even those of us who are here 12 months of the year.

We enjoy and appreciate so many aspects of this community-local live theater (an awesome YOOH production two weeks ago), the Spring Grove Cinema, a good local grocery store, a public library, restaurants, parks, and yes, even the SWIM Center. (Will some people ever quit complaining about the pool? What's your solution? Cement it in?)

Taxes may be lower somewhere else, say Canton, but I know taxes are higher in plenty of other communities.

I chose to live here, didn't you? Maybe, someday I will write letters to the editor from some warm southern climate, but for now I'm here in Spring Grove and appreciating it.
