13. For the first time in three years I am seeing signs of new businesses
getting ready to open. Two storefronts have major remodeling going on inside, one is going to be a nice restaurant with a patio along the sidewalk and nice french doors of quality wood construction, so there is some money there. And a bank building that has stood empty for 3 years is being remodeled and expanded and something is going in there, not sure what.

More excitement than I've seen in this neighborhood in a long time.

Unfortunately, another struggling florist has gone under - I think they took the biggest hit of any type of retail place here.
