My hometown has practically become a Ghost Town. Businesses that used to be thriving when I lived there are now boarded up and closed. I met a couple of my friends from school for a beer at the local Mexican restaurant. We had a couple of cold ones and I stated that if I am drinking, I would rather be in a bar atmosphere. We headed to the Sports Grill at the other end of town. It was closed. “Anywhere else we could go?” I asked. “Not really,” they replied. What? No bar hopping in Rayville? You gotta be kidding?
