Junction City For Sale
I'm worried about my town.Country Coach,the biggest employer in town,is going belly up in March.Gibson Ford has already closed and is three blocks of deserted lots.I was talking to an older gent at the gym today and he said that Junction City once was a booming logging and mill town,lots of jobs for everyone,and with free health care.All you had to do was bring a note from your employer to Ralph's Drug(now also gone) and you could get medicine for free, no co-pay.
Is this what small town America has become? A strip of service industries,dollar stores and coffee kiosks?
Here are some pics of Junction City 2009:
