Everywhere I've been this holiday season, store owners and employees respond to my question - "how's business?" - with positive answers. They say people are coming in, shopping and buying. Maybe the economy finally is turning around.
Out in my neighborhood, construction has begun on a U.S. 89-A bridge over Viewpoint Road. It's only been a couple of days and the project is expected to last until next October but at least there are signs of movement.
