"I`m not against it, it has it`s good points and it has it`s bad points. As a general rule, it`s good for our area," said resident Bee Saunders.
"From a business standpoint, it`s great. Business is on the way up and things are good. Right now, just have to try and take care of our customers," said Marketplace director Brian Vangsness.
