My friend, Glena, who operates our local version of The Country Register newspaper, told me about the 3/50 Project. It's just the medicine every local economy needs to help keep money right here -- in our local economy -- rather than seeing it go away. Click this link for a short overview of The 3/50 Project
For years, our Chamber of Commerce has asked folks in town to "Support Your Local Merchant" -- and now this movement has started to help folks across America to do just that. We live just 25 minutes from Las Vegas where every possible item ever created is available. But since I'm a "local merchant" myself, I've always tried to do all of my shopping right here in Boulder City where my dollars will recirculate right here in town. If I spend money in Las Vegas, Las Vegas benefits. If I spend money on line, who knows who benefits!
