What a great article written by Katie Lyness! Her positive attitude is one that we all should have. We are so lucky to live in such a great town! She is right, there is a ton to do on Main street, for all ages.

yes, thanks for naming the last few remaining businesses open on main street. i almost forgot, i am sure that will help keep them open.

things for Kids to do, Don't forget the junk yard just behind Savvy Seconds on Division, kids love to play in junk yards. Maybe the owner could sell tickets for entry like an amusement park. I Hope at least the museum is getting more tickets for the ghost town tour.
