Opinion: About this MarVal Bashing

Frankly, I am getting tired of seeing these nasty posts about MarVal and the dairy situation. I don’t see in most (any?) of them where the manager has been contacted to resolve these problems. 

No, everyone comes to Facebook first. 

Do you realize how fortunate we are to have MarVal here? It is one of the businesses that make us a community. Without MarVal, the gas station, our Fire Dept., our restaurants we are nothing more than a bunch of people living in houses next to each other and we become a bedroom community.
