What makes a great rural town, if not its community?

Here are two stories I have heard today, relating to how communities work – or don’t – in regional Western Australia.

 

What John Matthew believes about small business

That the owner has risked many things that others take for granted;

That there is no guaranteed income or reward for the considerable effort that is required;

That often, the family home is on the line to support the business and its constituents;

That there is a dignity and self-respect that is earned;

That entire communities would be better places if there was an increased appreciation and respect for small business.
