Epoch has not asked for airport extension

Interesting letter to the editor scheduled to be printed in the Saturday Joplin Globe.
Timothy Whelan, executive vice president, of Epoch Composite Products, Inc., in Lamar, says his company has never complained about the Lamar Airport runway being "inadequate" for its planes.
The Globe on June 25 quoted Lamar City Administrator Lynn Calton as saying the city's attempt to buy property for an airport extension was because of Epoch, Thorco, and Sun Container complaints.
The city is attempting to buy out a property owner who does not want to move in order to make way for the expansion.
