A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Construction is underway
on Conant Street in Maumee, but the work is bringing a lot of congestion to the
The city is paying for a
new, smooth road, and the contractor is putting in sidewalks where there
previously were none. But for area businesses, the improvements are impacting
their bottom line.
"They affect me during our
lunch time," said Carlos Funtes, manager of La Fiesta. "Our lunch has slowed
down about 50 percent."
That 50 percent loss is
one Funtes says he can't afford to take, especially since the construction in
front of his restaurant hasn't even started.
"The people coming from
uptown Maumee or other areas, it takes them 10 minutes to get here now," he
said. "If they only have 45 minutes for lunch, they're wasting 30 minutes
coming back and forth to the restaurant."
The story is different for
Deet's BBQ, where a still-active traffic light helps direct traffic toward
them. They've also found a positive way to spin the work.
"Everybody has to eat,"
said Co-owner Trevor Deeter. "So, you know, we go out and talk to the
construction guys and treat them well, and they come in and have lunch."
Business owners agreed,
though, that they want the project to be complete by the June deadline.
