Globe: Lamar hanging on after O'Sullivan shutdown

The Joplin Globe just posted an article on how Lamar is coping with the shutdown of its bigger employer, O'Sullivan Industries.
Based on what I read in Melissa Dunson's article, it appears Lamar residents are hanging in there, which is what I expected:

(City Administrator Lynn) Calton said there are other Lamar businesses that plan to expand and the city will find out next month if it has been chosen as a DREAM city to help with downtown revitalization.

"It's not like we're going to roll up the sidewalks and disappear," Calton said. "We're not going anywhere."
