As the fall of the economy began a few years ago, I noticed a definite decline in the number of cars parked in the Tokay High School student parking lot. Where it was normally full and overflowing, there were numerous unused parking spaces in the lot. This seemed to worsen as the economy worsened, which did make sense as families were having to tighten their belts with less available money to spend.
Well, I’m glad to see the student parking lot is again full, which must be a sign of an improving economy. This may sound like a simplistic indicator, but it is an indicator. If this holds true, and I hope it will, I look forward to the continued growth of our city and its residents in a positive manner.
