A) Show me where he said that and B) he couldn't really stop it even if he did say that.

Also, is it completely lost on you that you're complaining about the lack of a grocery store in Benson when this very thread is one you started to celebrate the closing of a grocery store in Benson?

Irony indeed.

It may not have been the best grocery store (whether your critic is correct or not) but at least it was there.

When it went under, you celebrated. Now, you complain that there is no grocery store.

I heard that Pete Festersen has a secret deal with some pentagram drawing Satanists to sell alcohol and hookers out of that old Walgreens.

Will be interesting to see how it shakes out.
