Good news/Bad News to the 5th degree

Talk about your good news, bad news week……

Good news is that I got to attend yesterday’s NCAA Midwest Final.

The bad news is that I was surrounded with Jayhawk fans. Nothing like listening to the “Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk” victory chant.

Great news is that I have the privilege to accompany my dad to WashingtonD.C. tomorrow on his Honor Flight to the World War II monument and other special honors for the WWII vets from St. Louis.

Bad news is that we have to be at the airport at 3:45am.

Good news is that Katie Otto from Maris will be our guest speaker at our meeting tomorrow.

The bad news is that I will miss the meeting.

Good news is that Kim and Karen are running the meeting.

The really bad news is that I’m still remembering that I had to sit thru an entire basketball game with Jayhawk fans. And remembering the Mizzou upset of a week ago.

The good news is that the Kansas fans left town.

There can be no bad news with that information.

Just knowing that, I’m leaving tomorrow for D.C. on a good noteJ Jim

St. Charles County stats

Attended meeting this morning with members of the EconomicDevelopmentCenter as guest speakers. St. CharlesCounty unemployment now stands at 6.5% in Jan. While still leaving many families hurting, it has dropped over the last few months and ranks below the State, metropolitan and national averages. The 2011 retail spending in the County also approached the pre-recession levels. So a few points to reinforce that the economy in the county is starting to respond in a positive direction.

EDC continuing to encourage start up of small businesses. Typical 504 Loan Structure is Lender 50%, SBA (Small Business Association) 40% and Borrower 10%. Happy to share with you contacts and information if you have clients who are talking about starting a business or expanding the business.

Real Estate information breakfast, Sat. 24th

It took me most of the weekend to put the Mizzou loss from Friday behind me. Anyway, this weekend no local teams on tv for the tournament. If your friends, neighbors or relatives are not watching the tournament or planting a garden, please invite them to our real estate informational breakfast this Sat. morning, March 24th at 9am. Chance for them to find out what is required for a real estate license and question and answer period. Would love to have rsvps to figure breakfast amount, but walk-ins are welcome.
