What you probably didn’t know about the Atchison airport expansion

It’s like getting picked out of the crowd on the Price is Right. All those people in the audience, ready to take their shot at winning big...all they have to do is walk on stage with Bob Barker. I wonder, did anyone ever decline? I doubt it...who could turn down a chance to go home $10,000 richer?

My husband is a pilot. He flies all over the country. Sometimes I know he's gone, I'm just not sure where! He often ends up in smaller towns and remote areas, and brings back stories of delightful downtowns and unique restaurants. 

About a month ago, he visited Eagle, Colorado. Came back raving about their downtown and the general culture of the town. "Great, honey. Glad you had fun." Didn't think much more about it. Then he brought it up again last week, about how small it was yet they had "figured out how to do downtown right". Well, being as interested in downtown revitalization as I am, I had to check this Eagle place out.
