The lot previously housed several businesses, including Raapers, a restaurant. Raapers, along with five other businesses, were all lost after a devastating fire tore through that part of the downtown area in February 2020.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
