The Clark Family asked that I add this statement to the coverage of the Sale Barn/Clark's Building teardown: We the Clark family wholeheartedly want to express our gratitude for all the well wishes and and memories you've shared recently about our old building at 9th and Main. It was in our family 45 years and no one can imagine the wonderful memories we have. Financially there was just no way to avoid "pulling the plug" on the old girl and we'll probably avoid driving by for quite a while. It's been our pleasure and honor to be a part of the community and to own a local landmark that has provided jobs, photo opportunities, movie filming, and memories for so many. We'd especially like to thank Mayor York for his invaluable assistance in the transition to the new property owners. The Clark family, Bill, Minnie, Rick, Ron and Greg.
