Those of you who read my posts (which are usually daily) you know that I focus on the positive side of life.

I've blogged in the past few weeks about Jacksonville Beach homes sales up 40% comparing April 2010 to April 2011, and Atlantic Beach home sales are up 69% comparing April 2010 to April 2011.

This was too good  headline to pass up and not write about.

For the first time in 2 years, our local unemployment rate is under 10%.  This continues with positive economic growth locally for the past five months, and is great news.

Washington's unemployment rate is slowly descending as well. And things look good in construction which seems to help our industry as well.

Whoa.  That is terrific news, Carol.  Hopefully, that trend continues for your area and spreads elsewhere!

Great News Carol.  We are down too, although we still have the highest rate in the Tampa Bay area.
