Letter: Look homeward when you shop
I was raised in a small town in Iowa. When I was little, there was a furniture store, a dress shop, a pharmacy, a flower shop, a couple of gift shops, a doctor's office and two grocery stores downtown. The people would drive into town to shop and everyone seemed to know everybody....

Letter: Serene country living gives way to shooters gone wild
