It is nice to drive where there are no pot holes. First Ryan Fleming, the new manager of the building the Star is located in, put new blacktop on his private parking lot behind this building. That is so nice. Thank you Ryan. Now the city put new blacktop on Court Street between Clark Street and Robinson Court. Thank you.
Thank you to the Stewards of the Square for the beautiful flowers in the pots around the square. It is nice that the Parks Department waters them.
