ROUNDTABLE: What about Galesburg’s image?

From the Register-Mail:

Galesburg’s image has always been a case of glass half-full or glass half-empty, and right now, there are a lot looking at the “half-empty” glass….

Galesburg has two extremely well-known and respected educational institutions in Knox College and Carl Sandburg Community College. BNSF makes its home here, as do two major hospitals, and numerous small businesses. We have our own symphony orchestra, community gardens, Railroad Days, Sandburg Days, the Carl Sandburg birthplace, our own recreational lake, campground, water park, golf course, and, oh yes, the people. So, good people, let’s keep the ideas coming and acknowledge that our fair city is already worth our time and energy to improve it.
