Next to speak was Liz Hays representing the owners of HeadLines
Salon. Hayes noted that HeadLines has been in the community for six
years, and that the owners are excited about their move and looking
forward to the future.
Carolyn McMath spoke next saying she was excited to be included in
the cut and very happy for Goodman and the ME Realtors and staff in
their new location.
Goodman spoke then saying that “ME Realty has come a
long way since 1983, so it has been in Logan County for a long time.
It is an honor and privilege to own the agency, and I owe a lot to
Carolyn for all she did to build the agency.”
Goodman went on to say that it had not been his intention to move
the agency, but when the building came available it just all fell
together. He thanked his staff for their support in the move.
Tracy Welch was called upon to speak on behalf of the city of
Lincoln. He said that Lincoln and Logan County were blessed to have
the three businesses. Welch noted that this was a return to his past
because the building had been Graue Pharmacy, which was the first
place where Welch worked.
McMath manned the scissors for ME Realty and was
joined by Liz Hays and Kay Anderson. With the count down the three
ladies did the honors of cutting the triple strand of red ribbon.

opportunity as well.
Congratulations to all three businesses on their move.
