Seven bite-size Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting for the next episode of 24:
Those with predictions of doom and gloom should casinos make their way to Ohio might want to visit the Quad Cities. The casinos blend nicely into the communities and attract visitors.

Remember how congested Secor Road was going to be when the Home Depot opened? I have yet to experience any delays. Remember how a new parking garage on Superior Street would be a step back for downtown? It vastly improved the look of the area.
Likewise, some people are balking at a request by National Amusements to sell liquor at a 16-screen cinema scheduled to open May 6 at Westfield Shoppingtown Franklin Park. National Amusements has been selling liquor at its 18-screen complex in Maumee for several months and, just as the company promised, there have been no problems.
