    Let me add to the comments. Howard has done various projects for me in the past quite satisfactorily, BUT sometimes he wouldn't show and came up with lame excuses for not showing. The last occurrence happened this past spring when he took an outdoor light fixture and some paint I had purchased home with him. We agreed that these outside chores could be done at his convenience even if I wasn't home. He never did the work, and in June I emailed Robin and was told he was out of town for a family emergency, had injured his hand, and was getting x-rays. I'd heard similar excuses before and decided I'd been patient enough and asked to have the items returned to me; I even said I'd pick them up when it became apparent they would not be returned voluntarily, which was in fact the case. In the end, I wrote the whole thing off and lost his number, went out and bought the items again and hired someone else to do the work.

    I have hired Howard for 3 separate jobs in my home. The work was good, he was punctual, and the prices were extremely reasonable.

Staubers Reopens as Lakeview Ace Hardware

I stopped in today to the old Staubers, which was sold to Lakeview Ace. The same staff folks are there, who have always been so neighborly and helpful. Just wanted you all to know they're back. I'm so glad. I'd much rather shop there than at a big box store.
