Greetings ...
I've been expecting to catch what I assume is a small mouse at the news museum this week but was startled with this view when I opened the back door this morning. My immediate reaction was that my mouse was really a large rat ... but after a calmer review ... decided I had a baby possum which I managed to shove out the back door with a board. I think my mouse is still around but glad to have at least one stranger removed from the premises. -- Ted Wright 7/16/2008
Sidewalks Poured In Final Section of Streetscape
The new sidewalk in front of the Chamber of Commerce office was being smoothed with a large roller Wednesday morning after the south side of Main between 10th & 11th Streets received their concrete July 16th.
Merchants (Lynn Beasley & Mert Rofkahr) were left to wait for the new sidewalks to dry for a few hours before they could get back to "normal" work Wednesday morning (on Block 59).
The ramp at the door of Jaycee's Antiques was already poured and prep for today's concrete was being done yesterday afternoon on the SW corner of 10th & Main.
I'm curious to see what will be going onto the lot recently cleared of the old Sonic building that had more recently been occupied by 4-A Auto Sales. This is just west of Doug's Grill between 7th & 8th on Main Street.-- Ted
