Could Washington be right?

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Last week, the news came that the cash for clunkers program ran out of money in a week.

And there was just a hopeful murmur out of Washington that the recession may be bottoming out.

Here in Levy where more than 1 in 10 folks is unemployed, there might have been some agreement--especially in Chiefland where there are hopeful signs of an economy working hard to recover. Behind First Baptist Church, the $220,000 Harmony Baptist Pregnancy Center is being built.

It’s the first new construction in a while and it looks beautiful, even if it’s only framing on a foundation.

Up a ways, the McDonald’s is pumping out the brew with new equipment installed for its McCafe menu. I am an admitted coffee addict. So this IS a good sign.

Next door to the Cato clothing store, the long empty unit on the end of the shopping center is being outfitted to become home to a second credit union. This has been in the works for a while; it was just delayed by the downturn in the economy.

Over across the street, the Smith Family recently cut the ribbon for the re-opening of the Texaco fast lube and car wash.
