Huntsville Alabama's New Waffle House and Army Contract

The Huntsville Historic Preservation Commission gave approval to the demolishing of the old Sonic drive-in and construction of a Waffle House on the edge of Old Town Historic District.  Mark Russell of the city council hopes that Waffle House will consider toning down their bright yellow signage to something that would fit in with Old Town's historic neighborhood.  Waffle House representative Joe Hoffman repudiated the request by saying that the company did not have to change its trademark because it fits with the historical guidelines of Old Town.  Without taking the advice under some consideration and immediately saying no gives a stance of arrogance by Joe Hoffman.  Sometimes its best to be graceful and not brutish when moving into someone else's neighborhood.

Alatech Inc and I3 (Integration Innovation Inc) both won contracts from the US Army to provide support to the U.S. Army Fires Center of Excellence in Fort Sill, Okla. and the development of training materials.  This contract is valued at 248 million dollars and looks to last through March of 2014.

Today's Tidbit: Remember the Huntsville Historic Preservation Commission has authorization on all changes to me made to properties as well as sets guidelines for properties within the Historical Districts of Huntsville Alabama.
