Listening to Mike Peters, a Mercy Hospital legislative specialist out of Springfield, discuss state matters as to health care, he made a poignant point.

He gave Mercy Hospital Washington ambassadors numbers to prove his point.

In the quest for new industries to create additional jobs, there can be a tendency to look away from the home front where established and relatively new companies are making an impact.
