We in Hardin County are generally more fortunate than those who live in larger cities. For the most part our residents are somewhat considerate of our less fortunate neighbors and those who need a little extra help. This is one of the reasons our community is a great place to live and work.
However, when large corporations such as McDonald's refuse to obey our state laws it is time to speak out and remind them that they are guests in our community and are not only expected but required to obey our laws.
