Oh, happy day!
Milver Investments is looking to build what is described as a "mixed -usedevelopment" at the end of West Avenue in Fayetteville. Along with 3,700 square feet of restaurant space, and 8,327 feet of office space, there are plans for seventeen condos.
WWhat a grand idea - right when the United States is experiencing a housing downturn, and an overbuilt condo market, it just makes all the sense in the world to build condos in the New York City of the Ozarks.
Maybe if some developers were seen less as visionaries and more as being a few cans short of a six-pack, Fayetteville wouldn't be so overbuilt itself.
A few weeks ago a smiliing anchor on the evening news announced that the "Spam King" in California had been arrested, so we should be seeing a lot less spam in our mailboxes. "What planet are you on?" I wondered.
Sure enough, as if to honor his memory, every other spammer on the planet seems to have tripled their output.
Still, I've tried so-called "spam filters" - they block real email from coming in, along with spam. So for now, I'll grin and bear it. Besides, there is always the chance that I might actually win that European lottery . . .
