What’s a good American?
To the writer of “Help American Vehicles” (Sound Off, Feb. 1-7): You think that driving an “American” car makes you a better American? What makes people good Americans is helping those in need regardless of where their car was made, or what country they are from. And by the way, your “American” car might be assembled in America, but most of the parts probably come from foreign countries. Hopefully you don’t break down and the only people who drive by refuse to help people driving “American” cars.
Shame on you for putting your misguided idea of patriotism ahead of the welfare of a fellow human being (“Help American vehicles,” Sound Off, Feb. 1-7)! Can you tell as you pass that foreign branded vehicle in distress if it was actually made overseas or if it was made here in the U.S.? Many foreign automobile makers have manufacturing facilities right here on our own soil, and many “American made” automobile makers have facilities that are not here in the U.S. I’m wondering if you were in the party that left the couple still stranded in a ditch.

Create A Can has been a family owned business since its creation over 10 years ago. It has grown to become a partnership between mother Donna J. Royce and daughter Megan D. Royce.
As the gift business continues to grow and diversify, Donna Royce said, the former Stewart’s convenience store location at 637 State St. will make for higher visibility and more traffic.
