The potential economic impact of attracting retirees to Douglas County will be the topic of a community meeting.

The meeting will be from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine.

John Glassman, director of Douglas County Senior Services, will summarize results of a recent study conducted by researchers at Kansas University’s School of Social Welfare.

The discussion will include the benefits and risks of Douglas County actively promoting itself as a retirement destination. For more information on the meeting, presented by the Douglas County Coalition on Aging, call Gayle Sigurdson at 832-1692.

So, retirees are by their nature "right-wing" folks who hate the "leftists"?

Strange thought.

Don't forget all the retirees will need to be sure their sidewalks are shoveled, their taxes are paid and they enjoy driving over lots of pot holes.
