Welcome Toby Keith

Toby Keith is coming to the "official" opening of his Bar and Grill at Riverview. The opening is next Wednesday, which with Keith in town, should be a busy day down there. The question remains, is this enough to bring life to the district?

So far, the word we have heard is that the food is pretty good, and things are looking up a little at Riverview, but while the restaurant is neat, its is not going to be enough to put Riverview on the map. The best hope now is that it will be a catalyst to attract other businesses and restaurants into the area to create a wide variety of things to do and places to eat.

Riverview is too big. It's not a bad district, just one built way too big to support area retail, even in a better economy. By the time the economy picks back up, the Main Street shops will have been lying vacant for at least 2-3 years. Structurally, they will be suffering from the wear and tear of the elements over those years.

Not even Barack Obama could save this Main Street.
