Existing-Home Sales Rise in February
Old National stock on the rise
The news in the banking industry has been on the down side for the past few months. It is therefore good news that the banks in the Mid-West are doing better and we have our own Old National Bank of Evansville to thank for this upswing. According to Bloomberg.com the stock of Old National Bancorp rose faster than that of any other bank or mortgage firm listed in the Standard & Poor's Small Cap 600 Index between March 10 and 14. We wish Old National Bank continued success for the remainder of this year and hope to continue to hear good news for Evansville.

Lowe's backs away from North side site
We have just received the latest information on Lowe’s anticipated move to the North Side of Evansville. As per Jane Reel, Evansville redevelopment specialist, said she learned through an e-mail that Lowe’s is “not going through with the project at this time.” Lowe’s was recently granted a tax abatement which was approved by the city council on March 10th. We still hope Lowe’s will go through with their plans as the addition of the store would have meant additional jobs for Evansville.” To read the full story from www.courierpress.com, go to http://www.courierpress.com/news/2008/mar/26/26web-Lowes/.
