New things

I spent the last week out of town, and am catching up with what has changed. One thing I noticed was that a potential business I had mentioned in January is now open.
I looked inside and there was very little for sale. The main business seems to be carry-out Mexican food. Why don't you try it and tell us what you think in the comments? The number on the sign is 219-866-5370.
Before I left town I saw city workers measuring by the railroad crossing on Matheson Street. I asked them what they were doing, and they said that they were preparing a crossing of the water main from the new well to the existing main. Since they cannot shut down the railroad, this part of the pipeline requires special technique.
Last week they seemed to have made the crossing. The area is disrupted, and there are pipes sticking out of the ground on both ends.

New carry-out Mexican place - YUMMO. Most menu items come with beans and rice and are $5. We also ordered a huge bag of tamales, which we unanimously agreed were delicious. Not a lot of English spoken, but the counter person seemed very friendly.

We'll definitely be repeat customers!

if i am correctly remembering what i read before, this mexican restaurant is in a building that has or had coin-operated laundry machines. (laundromat is a trademarked name, but you wouldn't know it.)

therefore this building is by a bridge crossing the river, yes?

Yes, the laundromat is closed and vacant; this section was previously the dry-cleaning section, then became a vacuum cleaner shop which recently closed.
