Established Successful Chatham Restaurant Changes Hands
If you have ever eaten at Trackside, you know the quality of the food and the friendlyservice is a big part of their success. Many people in Chatham-Kent frequent the eatery and know the owners and the staff on a first name basis. Back in February, long time employee, Kathy Dinga took ownership of the Business. The owners, Eli and Grace Tangafter 35 years decided to retire and approached Kathy to see if she would be interested in taking over. It was important to them to continue their legacy and what they had built. Who better than someone who had been a big part of it for the last 20 years. Eli's is home to Kathy and many of the regulars are long-time friends. It has been 4 months and Kathy wants everyone to know that the menu is still the one they know and love, plus daily and weekend specials, of course. She is continuing to serve consistently good food at great prices, something that Eli's is well known for.
Eric Hector, chef at the restaurant, takes great pride in the fact that they purchase all their meats from Schinkel's Gourmet Meats right here in Chatham. Everything is freshly prepared and they use no pre-packaged foods. Many customers are there for the delicious breakfasts but don't forget, they are open Monday until Saturday from 7 A.M. until 2 P.M. and Sunday's 8 A.M. until 1:30 P.M. so be sure to try their delicious sandwiches and lunch specials.
Kathy and her staff look forward to serving the people of Chatham-Kent for many years to come and welcome new and old customers alike. All are welcome! It is so nice to have restaurants like this in our midst who believe in providing a comfortable atmosphere coupled with good old fashioned food and service. Good luck Kathy!

Generation X Makes Comeback into Real Estate Market
According to a recently released study by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Homeowners in the Gen X Generation are making a comeback into the Real EstateBuyer/Seller pool. In recent years, the time spent in their present home was 10 years, a cycle that was interrupted by the decline of house prices experienced in 2011.

A stronger job market and a rise in homeprices is stated as the reason for this activity. It has taken this long for Gen X to rebuild their equity in their present home. Always in the forefront, Gen X has taken a backseat
