It is interesting to see the progress of the Mayo Brothers plan for a hospital in Cannon Falls. The Beacon is excited over it and it is good to see the paper losing spit over something other than baby pictures and the fire department.
While I think it's intriguing to see the Mayo Brothers striving to become the Walmart of Medicine in the country, it is also heartening to know that the Molenaar Clinic will be in operation (no pun intended) at about the same time. I am a firm believer in the value of competition.
There is another event coming soon and that is the opening of the library. This will permit citizens to meet and discuss local events in a fresh and vibrant environment. The library will have computers, movies and e-books. The rumor is that printed material, like books and newspapers, will also be available for inspection and carry-out.
For those interested in another kind of carry-out, Dudley's pizza, located next door, will be happy to oblige.
