Campaign too negative

Re: “Tourists asked to go ‘nowhere’ this summer,” Haliburton Echo, May 5
John and Ed, two Haliburton seniors, are sitting at a table in Head Lake Park playing cribbage. John asks Ed: Where are you going today? Ed: I was going to go Somewhere, but then I met you and now I’m going Nowhere. John: Where were you going to go? Ed: Nowhere in particular, but I forgot where. John: Where did you go yesterday? Ed: I was going to go Somewhere but then I met you and we went Nowhere and just sat and played cribbage. John: What are you going to do tomorrow? Ed: I’m going Nowhere in particular. If I see you tomorrow, we’ll go Somewhere and have a coffee. How about Kosy’s? John: Sounds like a plan. Note: This scenario sounds about as logical as Mr. Marc Whitehead trying to promote Haliburton tourism by reaching out with negative vibes aka “going nowhere.” Anybody who lives here permanently knows that Haliburton exists on a slippery slope. We need to think with positive vibes. We want to go Somewhere, Somehow, Someplace and do it fast. People who come up here to do go nowhere or do nothing or lounge around do exactly that. They don’t even go into town shopping.
