    The IRS expects to receive about 148 million tax returns this year, and as of March they had received 107 million returns, with about 91 percent filed electronically.

    Cynthia Jenkins of Bagdad, who filed her taxes Wednesday at H&R Block, said preparation is the key to getting it done quickly and efficiently.

  • Fiesta Mexicana could open as soon as next week

    More than a year after vanishing in smoke and flames, a longtime downtown restaurant has risen from the ashes but in a different location.

    After burning to the ground in a March 2013 fire that also took down two other buildings in the 600 block of Main Street, Fiesta Mexicana is preparing to reopen very soon in a standalone building at 1815 Midland Trail.

    Except for some finishing touches, work on the restaurant is basically complete, so much so that it was ready for a final inspection yesterday.
