Friday update

Is anyone else in the Downtown core having problems with their Xfinity Internet connection? It’s not that it’s gone out, but rather that someone is flooding the network with so much traffic that the connection slows to a crawl. This seems to happen primarily during business hours, and started Wednesday.

99 Cent Soul Food on South Main re-opens today.

Blow-dry service has returned to Rachel’s Salon and Day Spa.

If you have business with the county clerk’s office, you’re out of luck. A case of COVID-19 was reported at the Downtown office, and it has had to close. Also, the satellite locations can’t operate without the support of the Downtown location, so they’re closed too.

Las Delicias on Park has temporarily closed after two employees who have tested positive for COVID-19. Sadly, I think we are going to see more of these closures.

The second BuildDowntown webinar, where you can offer feedback on the plan for Downtown for the next 20 years, is today noon-1:15 PM.

Calvary Church is requesting donations of men’s jeans, to help clothe the homeless this summer. You can drop off jeans at the church at 102 N. Second.

Internet’s going down, so I’m going to hit Publish before it’s gone completely. Posts may be hit-or-miss the next few days until Xfinity gets this straightened out.
