Not to Be Missed

According to an article in today's Register-Star, the former LB Industries building is morphing into a grassroots business incubator--without benefit, it would seem, of PILOTs, tax incentives, or any kind of IDA intervention: "New life at old furniture warehouse." 

Coincidentally, as I headed out to take this picture, I heard these statistics on the car radio: 89 percent of businesses in the United States are microbusinesses, employing no more than five people, and people who own their own businesses are likely to earn 27 percent more than they would as employees.
