Letter to the Editor: Average Americans acting with vision

To the editor:

Thank you for your in-depth article about Connie Hammje and her business, Dutch House caramels (Dec. 28), who has created a successful thriving business in our area through diligence, tenacity and plain hard work.

We all need to be reminded from time to time that it is not the politicians that make America great but rather average Americans from all walks of life who dream and then act on a purposeful vision.

The predictable outcome is the creation of jobs and wealth in our community. We are blessed to have these individuals amongst us and I encourage the Echo Press to continue to feature positive in-depth stories about local entrepreneurs and businesses who leave a legacy of greatness in their wake.
