It’s good to see that we’re still making things, but we’re very top heavy with business that do not make things and government. It’s a long history, but Newark was founded on making things.  If you want to stake the future on government, you don’t have a problem with the current picture.

The nice thing about this picture is that the ground work is still there for us to rise again. We know how to make an industrial town work. We’re also gaining a 4-lane highway from Columbus to Newark. There are a few small innovative businesses taking off that could fill the empty spaces. In a political season of nothing but false hope and change, there may be real hope lurking.

For smaller businesses, you may want to take note of their website designs. Some of the looks are not that difficult to achieve. Notice the content and the style it is written in too. Take a look at how they market themselves with other websites by finding who links to them and who blogs about them.
