  1. Amazing work by these individuals. Congratulations to all!

  2. Thank goodness. It seems as though we heard about their success every 10 minutes. Glad they’ve finally stopped tooting their own horns. Hope this is the last we hear from that bunch.

  3. That edifice looks like Habernickel ?

  4. Move on so we all can. Healthbarn is a business sucking resources from the town
