Local Business Breaks Ground the Old Fashioned Way

A Ground breaking ceremony conducted Thursday August 3th was a reminder of a time gone by. ┬áThe ground breaking was for the West View Green House Homes project Members of West View’s administration decided to duplicate the ground breaking ceremony from 1964 by breaking the ground with mules. Just as in 1964 a team of mules broke ground. ┬áThe Mules used to break ground Thursday are named Ruth and Rose and owned by Kenny Ball.
