Kudos to businesses for donating rock

Way to step up, Menzel Lake Gravel and Iron Mountain Quarry.

Regarding the story you ran on the new spirit rock on Tuesday, “School spirit rocks Granite Falls”: It was great to see that these business owners do not just think about profit and greed, which some of them have been accused of lately, and stepped up to the plate to help out the local high school with their generous donations.

The students of Granite Falls, I am sure, will get many years of enjoyment out of decorating their very own pet rock, especially because it was hand picked from their own town.

I would encourage other business owners to take note and get involved in their own communities where they do business.
