  1. It would be great to have breakfast in town again.

  2. Not a piece of ex-cretionJune 12, 2016 at 6:35 PM

    Dorchester better be worrying about filling its vacant homes if they think they can actually support more mainstreet businesses. The wife and me drove throughout town this week since we only get to Dorchester about once a month, and we counted at least 20 vacant homes some needing a bulldozer or a match and gasoline. I would focus my time on growing your town with the homes you have available. Just a thought from a Crete resident.

    1. Mind yer own business, Mr. Excretion.

      I'm live in Crete, too, but hail from Dorchester and I think that Dorchester's downtown has so much potential. Just look at that charming building!!!

      Hoping Dorchester gets more businesses on Main Street AND grows its residential population. I know firsthand Dorchester is safer, cleaner and has a better school than Crete, and property taxes aren't out of control to pay for a $38 million new school built for a student population that won't stick around and has a large % of illegals!

  3. crete's main street is not much better!!!

  4. Here's a mainstreet business idea for all of Saline County: Rattlesnake catchers!
