To the Editor,
I’m just wondering…. Why doesn’t the City of Cedar Springs and the Red Flannel Festival just call it “a wash”? The Festival should contribute to the City by allowing the use of the Red Flannel logo because the City is promoting the Festival. The City should contribute to the Festival by providing the services of the Department of Public works and the Police Department because the Festival is promoting the City.
Instead, both are contributing to the legal system, which, financially, may or may not be comparable to the amount of money in contention.
In the words of Rodney King, “Can’t we all… just…get along?”
Former Chair of the Red Flannel Festival
