U.S. Oylpian Jan Frodeno, Wins The 2014 Ironman 70.3 in St. George Utah

St. George Utah Has a New “Ironman”, YESCO Packs It Up, And Comic Books For All

That was a busy Saturday in sunny St. George…

From the little too the big, the young too the old, Southern Utah’s comic book fans swooped down on Comics Plus yesterday, taking advantage of Saturday’s “Free Comic Book Day” event. While the pocket protected fans of today’s action heroes live vicariously through the colorful pages of their favorite comic books, others prefer to grab the life by the horns.

St. George Comic Book Give Away

Comic Books For All at the St. George Comic Book Give Away

Case and point… Yesterday’s winner of the St. George, Utah, Ironman 70.3 events was none other than US Olympic champion, Jan Frodeno. Finishing in under 4 hours; at 3 hours, 45 minutes, and 21 seconds. While last year’s women’s champion Meredith Kessler repeated feat of strength and endurance. Showing slightly less endurance, is the electric sign company YESCO who have ostensibly packed up their electronic sign-making bags and consolidate their efforts in areas with a stronger economic base.

Speaking of the strength of our economic base, St. George Utah real estate continues to sell at a somewhat anemic pace. From Monday, April 28, through Sunday, May 4, 23 listed properties on the Washington County Board of Realtors’ Multiple Listing System (MLS) have closed escrow. From the least expensive unit, a modular home with 620 ft.², which closed for $62,000 after sitting  for over 110 days on the market. At the other end of the spectrum, and taking 195 days sell. A 2,423 ft.² home on St. James Place closed escrow for $488,100 – after originally listing in October of last year for $499,900.

See the complete list below of recently closed escrow’s below (all listing information provided by the Washington County Board of realtors and the MLS system).

It’s Sunday, my favorite day of the week. Costco is empty and the roads are wide open. So it’s time to finish this blog, walk the dog, and go do a little weekly shopping.
