Local veteran pride runs deep
By Jeremy Ratliff
Special to the Courier
I have been blessed to have had the opportunities to visit many places throughout my life. I have visited cities with populations in the hundreds of thousands as well as villages which merely amount to a city block, tavern and sometimes even a feed mill. Not to sound bias....ok well maybe a little bias; but one trademark I have come to notice of small towns and villages is the obviously apparent pride in their local veterans and veteran organizations.
$1 will get you prime
downtown real estate; aspirin optional but recommended
By Jeff Hovind
WANTED: An entrepreneur to redevelop a downtown historical icon with a storied past and unlimited possibilities. Asking price: $1. Some restrictions apply.
The wording for a legal notice ad may be a bit more official, but the message will be similar, as the city seeks a developer to bring down the Lincoln House and site something new in this prime piece of downtown real estate, at the same time, enticing a developer into paying for the cost of demolition and redevelopment.
“We’ll offer them a building for a buck, and they have to come in with a demolition plan and proposal to redevelop the site,” Mayor Bill Bialecki said.
