It was early in my relationship with my mother-in-law, Rose Mary, when I concluded the two of us were destined to be more like mother and daughter, or two loving friends who just happened to be smitten with the same guy. I remember telling her the title of "mother-in-law" didn't seem to genuinely describe the admiration I had for her.

Getting closer

Work is progressing on a new building in Springdale Plaza. The 6,600 square foot building, which is being built to house three retail spaces, faces U.S. 1 near Springdale Drive adjacent to Arby's.

While the outside of the building looks substantially complete, crews are working on the inside; in fact, the city recently issued a permit to retrofit part of the space for a restaurant. If all goes as planned, the three businesses should be open for business by the fall.
