Business owners raise concerns over burned out building
A building off Kestevan Alley damaged in a fire nearly three years ago brought several downtown business owners to the Board of Aldermen’s Oct. 7 meeting.
Dunn’s Jewelry owner Dr. Bobby Papasan said he had been a merchant on Main Street since 1982, but had reached a crossroads moment.
“A town is never going to be any better than it’s ugliest part,” Papasan said, reporting that just outside his back door is an eyesore. “Ride down Kestevan and take a look at what’s going on,” Papasan said.
The building at 6164 Fox Island Road, once an apartment complex, has now become a place for loitering and trash.

Flu season is here, and options to get vaccinated might be just a house call away.
Pamela Redd, CEO of Mid-Delta Home Health & Hospice, said her organization can administer the flu shot to anyone in their own home or at their local office.
“We are a home health organization, and we deal with home health patients,” she said. “We run into people that need the flu shot all the time, every day, simply because most of our patients are the elderly population, and that’s a vulnerable population.”
