Letter: Downtown upgrades useless without grocery store

Attracting tourists, like for a country show in River Fest Park, is a waste of money for the already over taxed residents of De Soto. If there are not essentials, like a grocery store in the town, it's ridiculous to have events that are for towns that are already thriving. This town will never thrive until there are business, and jobs created, for the town to thrive. Until then, it's stagnant and a place where people who once thought there was so much potential for growth, are leaving in droves. In other words, it's a dying community.
