They can play this up all they want but it looks to be they are picking from the bottom of the barrel. All they been able to do is get bars and second hand stores along with tat shops. Let us not forget the COZY INN home of the $1.09 hamburger bun with a quarter size piece of meat. Downtown is really great and she will do no better than the ones who tried ahead of her..

A $1.09 for a Cozy you got to be kidding? Well I know where not to go eat. Maybe she can do something starting with that. LOL

C’mon Salina. Downtown is DEAD. Old News. Take it off life-support and bury it.
