Article Image Alt Text

When the doors of City Auto closed almost two years ago, it left a void, not only in the downtown business district, but also in the community of Rotan itself. It was one more business gone and one less place to go. But come this Friday, a new business will roll out the welcome mat to the citizens of Fisher County. Ray’s Sports Bar will officially open for business for the Cinco de Mayo Celebration.

It was almost a year to the day when Carlos Almanza was talking with his wife and daughters about taking the old building and turning it into something for the community.

Debbie said there were two poems the class had to memorize and recite. She laughed when she recalled how the one she didn’t want to recite was the one she remembered, and the one she liked, she can’t remember. The poem was “Lamplighter Barn” by Myra Cohn Livingston. Toliver still remembers the words.
