Potter’s Drive In now has a dining room.
The restaurant, which opened last March, operated as a take-out only eatery from the spring through Dec. 31. On Jan. 1, they opened the dining room, according to the Potter’s Drive In Facebook page.
The restaurant is located at the corner of Military Road and Jess Lyons Road, near where the take-out building stood. They offer homemade-style hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hamburger steaks, chicken tenders, hot dogs, French fries, onion rings, pies and more.
The phone number is 662-327-5511.
Over in Starkville, Bulldog Lanes has closed.
The business’ last day open was Saturday. It had been open on Highway 12 more than a decade. The Dispatch was unable to contact management for comment.
We have received several queries regarding some construction work underway on some property along Lehmberg Road, beside Lowndes Funeral Home. Here’s the deal: that property is owned by Lott Ventures, according to county land records. The Lowndes County School District has shown interest in purchasing the spot (12-plus acres) and building a centralized vo-tech center for county students there. The district has not purchased the spot, but the property owner has had preliminary dirt work done in the interim.
Have you ever wanted to own the building that Logan’s Roadhouse is in? For about $3 million, you can.
Last week at loopnet.com, a commercial real estate listing website, a posting for the Columbus structure on 18th Avenue went live. The asking price is $2,970,000. The posting noted the property’s basics: the one-story building is 6,555 square feet, was built in 2011, sits on 1.5 acres and Logan’s Roadhouse has about 16 years left on a lease.
The most interesting note, though, was this: “There are approximately 60,000-plus people within a five-mile radius of the property.”
Lastly, some Golden Triangle goat, bee and horse figures to chew on.
The USDA released its 2012 Census agriculture numbers last year. According to those numbers, there are 201 goats in Lowndes County, 107 in Noxubee County, 98 in Oktibbeha County and 63 in Clay County. There are 24,528 in Mississippi.
There are 36,097 colonies of bees in Mississippi, and those colonies contributed to the 2,858,769 pounds of honey collected in the state in 2012, according to USDA. Approximately 78 colonies are in Lowndes County, 27 are in Oktibehha County and 14 are in Clay County.
There are 58,697 horses in Mississippi. Approximately 1,013 are in Oktibehha County, 484 are in Lowndes County, 456 are in Clay County and 455 are in Noxubee County, according to USDA.
