Who's looking out for you?

If you've been investing for a while, you know that there are few guarantees in the investment world and that, in one way or another, you're going to be taking some risks with your money.

The business of community

We spend a lot of time watching businesses come into the community. We watched with great anticipation while Publix was built. There are more banks, gyms and retail outlets going up. We have three McDonald's locations around town. Rotary was packed to hear Paul Fletcher talk about Water Ways Township (formerly Genesis Point). The grand opening of Kroger was nothing short of spectacular. We are waiting with great anticipation to find out what business will occupy the old Kroger spot. Quite honestly, I am ready to start making up rumors about that one.

On Sunday liquor sales

Our city became all abuzz last week when word got out that a letter had been sent to the city requesting a referendum to allow Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants. But, we are not alone. There are discussions going on about this very topic in our state legislation now. In fact, Senate Bills 137 and 138 would apply to retail stores as well as restaurants. It would not make the sale on Sundays legal. What it would do is allow individual communities to introduce referendums for a vote. I like to vote.
