Check out the article for more details, and all the other closings, openings and announcements from the month.

Moving into next week, there are several stories I’m looking forward to. The first one will have myself and photographer extraordinaire Annie Rice heading to Tahoka to learn about a new restaurant. We are also working on several end of year projects, so this will be a busy time.
