I'm lucky in that my job allows me to see and get up close to some really neat things. Case in point: one week ago, Plains Township, Main and Carey. The safe from the old bank building here was picked up by a crane, placed on a flatbed and hauled away. The safe was more than 47,000 pounds of concrete and steel. The demolition crew made it look easy.
It was a great, old building. Unfortunately, it was allowed to deteriorate and demolition was the only option. It's a story we've seen too many times before, and there will be more to come.
