" Let me get this straight....Whirlpool beleive so much in investing in this area that they decided to spend their construction dollars with an out of state firm?. Guess the area construction companies and those employed by those companies don't match up to Whirlpool's standards! So much for more local jobs! Read my lips....Whirlpool is going to do what is good for Whirlpool and could give a rip about anyone else here! WE LOVE WHIRLPOOL (lol) "

" a place that i worked at tried for years to get just a small piece of the pie from the washtub company. never good enough though we did business with corporations larger than the wersher company. go figure.
that outright hostility to local really chafes the ol' chaps.
funny ( not in a ha ha ha way however ) how it took some comments about the lack of locals on the golf course construction before a local construction firm showed up and prominently parked its trailer / tool crib out by the highway. until then there weren't any locals working on it.
but we are urged to support local buy local think local.
not too many 2 way streets around, it seems. "

" All those jobs for local people - just another of MANY lies from Whirlpool. I just can not believe how naive the locals are in this area who think Whirlpool is doing this out of the goodness of their heart. Where else in this country can they get waterfront property for basically nothing and get tax breaks for it with their own airport and golf course. They now have control of all the waterfront property in BH. They now own the town. It isn't for the community they are doing this - it is for Whirlpool. They should spend their money on making better products made to last like they used to, not the crap they sell now. "
