It seems the worst of the recession has skipped Taylor County.
Local business owners say that, while business isn't booming, it isn't bad either.
"Actually, in the last couple of months, we have increased a little," said Terry Pennington, owner of Creek Side Restaurant.
While overall revenue has dropped a bit from two years ago, Pennington said, his business is holding its own.
"I think we've been pretty lucky."
One change Pennington has noticed is when people are dining out.
