Private Sector overcomes Government   Leave a comment

North Pole take-out owner delivers on promise to deliver – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Local News.

This piece in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner just begged to be posted!

The State of Alaska Department of Transportation rarely closes roads unless the weather closes them. Alaskans are used to driving in adverse circumstances and DOT generally lets us use our own judgement. But occasionally, the conditions require a road closure — like when heavy rainfall threatens the integrity of a bridge.

Government closed it because it was the right thing to do, but a private  businessman with a can-do attitude didn’t let that stop him from giving good customer service.

Knott deserves a huge round of applause. Mike Laiti (whose mom is one of my favorite former coworkers) deserves a pat on the back for telling the world about Knott’s service heroics.

This is what small business in America looks like, so why do we keep putting a thousand-pound weight of regulation, increased taxation and forced health insurance on every day heroes?
