Editorial: This is a great place to live

Albert Lea can make a good impression on outsiders. Obviously, our city made a positive imprint on the North American Hockey League and the potential owner of an expansion team for our city.

Anyone who claims our city isn&8217;t good enough is falling into the grass-is-greener-on-the-other side trap. Sometimes, other houses look better than yours, even when you have a good house. In the same way, other cities look better than ours and residents don&8217;t see how good our city is.

And indeed Albert Lea does have areas it needs to work on. Let&8217;s be realistic here.

But overall, this is a good place. Many people who move here see that. They remark on the city&8217;s beauty and denote its future potential.

Count your blessings. Cherish this city. It&8217;s a beautiful place to reside, and it is filled with wonderful people.
