The Grass Isn't Always Greener. . .

. . .on the other side.

My youngest kids and I enjoyed Spring Break in a southern destination.

Southern Canada that is.

We visited Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada for a few days to take in the sights and sounds of the gorgeous Falls.

It's easy to think that things are just booming in a place like Niagara Falls when you see cranes up and new buildings being built.

I can't help but take a look at the other side though, literally.

The view from the 35th floor back side of our hotel shows one the "other side" of Niagara Falls.  It's rather a stark contrast to the glitz of the more visible side of the Falls.

Frankly, as a recent report from Joel Kotkin shows, the grass is greener right here in Licking County and Central Ohio, and it's because the basis for our economy is stronger.  We are fortunate that our economy is anchored solidly on a diverse array of "economic base" type industries like manufacturing, laboratory services, machining, food production, bank headquarters, multi-state logistics, and more.
