    Geez louise, they've exploded then. As I said, I was extremely unimpressed. Everything was greasy X10. They make they're patties fresh and they're pretty good sized but really, I've had comparable food at a dozen podunk greasy spoons around this state. Think Whattaburger in Russellville here but with less history and less "ambience." Now...a DC area chain I sure wouldn't mind seeing is Ledo Pizza! http://www.ledopizza.com/ Oooh and while I'm wishing and dreaming...Hard Times Cafe! http://hardtimes.reachlocal.net/

    Is this the Five Guys burger joint out of the DC area?? When one of those opened up to much hype in the town I was living in outside Baltimore you would have thought the skies had parted and the Lord Himself had come to town the way the locals fawned over it. I was terribly disappointed. Absolutely nothing special about the place other than people's fond memories of their days as a Twerp at College Park. Surely this is a different Five Guys. I sincerely hope they've not made that big of an expansion so quickly.

    I cannot back anything up with statistics but I personally could not fathom the area without River Rail. Without that, I think Argenta would be a relative shell of what it is. I would credit River Rail with being the most important factor in sustaining the revitalization by giving mobility to both sides of the river. Alltel may have been the catalyst to kick it off but River Rail helps keep locals coming in regularly by opening up entertainment options.

    I'm pretty certain that in NLR, Alltel came first, historic district development 2nd and Dickey Stephens last. So Alltel pretty much drove the Argenta resurgence.

    Sounds to me like someone might want to raise a stink about the manner in which information is being withheld in this issue to the local media...

    The whole concept of a stop at Amtrak would be the under the presumption that fuel costs will again escalate past consumer tolerances like the past year and increase heavy rail usage over air. Totally speculative on my part. Children's would be a good stop!

    A WLR extension would be exhorbitantly expensive and I don't think worth the effort at this point in time. I think the extensions that make the most sense in the short term are the airport of course and another to the Capital area with a stop at the Amtrak station.

    The old adage from business, IIRC, is "If you ain't growing, you're dying."

    Wish I'd have found out about this sooner so I could have put in my application for a booth... Looks like a fabulous event and I'll have to mark my calender for next year so I can participate.

    Oh please. Of course people can cross College. But I for one wouldn't want to if I don't have to. I'll agree I've yet to see one of these that I really found architecturally appealing but in this case I think could be very beneficial. I'm rather confident that Wash. Co. will spend enough to make it at least modestly appealing.

    As do busy 4 lane thoroughfares that are difficult or downright dangerous to cross.

    In more news...Superior Industries has announced some layoffs across the board and the closure of the Pittsburg KS plant. Some people in Fayetteville and Rogers as well will be out of work. No word on how many.

    Champs Drive is also being extended and I think they're in the process of linking Champs up with Louis Nelson which I'm pretty sure is what I saw on a street plan somewhere.

    My wife said the new MS principal said they expected it to be complete in time for the 2010-2011 school year. This was week before last at the "meet the principal" night.
