To the Editor:
The claim of Frank Parrish and others over the past few years that Dillsboro is a ghost town is highly exaggerated. By all accounts, most Dillsboro merchants had a very good 2012. My retail store broke even its first year and posted a profit the second year (2012). These are the facts people. It’s not the boom times for anybody in the region, but far from the doom and gloom you have been reading about.
