These businesses also had an Open House which The Brazil Times failed to cover. Although the turnout was encouraging, I wonder what the turnout might have been had it been announced.

The business Homework Helper is incorrectly named in this article as Home Work Helper. It is a homework assistance and tutoring center, not something associated with helping work in the home. The editors should have noticed this error.

As a former Brazil resident, I'm not all that surprised.

I find it strange that so many city employees find is necessary to appear in every ribbon cutting photo. This one had 5. I think a ribbon cutting should have 1 person from the Chamber and the mayor. I think it's great to have the support of the city officials but do they need to crowd into the pictures.

Also, these are NEW businesses. The contact information for them should have been included as well. The business owners were not even spoken to by the Times. I am not really all that surprised but as Ex-Brazilian said a press release was prepared to announce the open house and it was ignored by the Times.
