I got a call this afternoon from April Harrington. I'm always glad to hear from her, but I was a little worried since she has had such bad news with the move by ODOT to take her property for its road-widening project. Well, this was a good news call. She said she had just agreed to a settlement with ODOT that gives her pretty much everything she wants, so she will be able to pay off her existing mortgage AND have money left over to re-start her business at another location, a business which is an essential aspect of the local food scene here in central Oklahoma.
So thanks to everyone who contacted their politicians about this, thanks to her lawyer Justin Hershey for doing such a good job on her behalf, and don't forget to order a calzone from her this month to celebrate this great victory!
