Home town

Small town in the Great State of Michigan!

Good post! I don't think they want new people or companies to come in as competition. There are houses on the market to be filled, so the loss is going to have to covered or those left share an increasing burden. Also, there are people currently traveling out of town for some distances fo…

I use only brown sugar and put them, while just barely still warm, in a plastic container that locks tight, although we rarely have many left to store. Brown sugar gives a more tender baked good with a less sweet taste which we prefer.

It costs nothing to make an appeal. I just looked up a house we sold 3 years ago, and the value is estimated as increasing 25% during the 3 years, and trust me, that borders on complete insanity. If you dig around the Beacon website, you can compare your house with others that are similar…

But, are there comparable wage jobs in Emporia that will pay the bills?

I was surprised that he was only hearing "buzz" since I thought, well in a previous county where we resided, that the RDA interfaced with local businesses on a continuous basis to be ahead of happenings, needs, desires, etc. Wasn't there an article yesterday saying how well the RDA was do…

Actually, that is done at the local level, and they are probably relocating, not actually closing a business. RDA and "Ignite Emporia" would be the ones most likely if there is any intervention to try to see if something could be worked out. If not, those same two entities should begin at…
