A bit more than four months ago, on May 25, a new Mexican restaurant, Casa Azteca, opened in Tampa under the ownership of Hector Cardenas of Marion.
Cardenas, a long-time chef originally from Mexico, said owning a restaurant is a dream of his, and Tampa opened the door.
“I tried to open (a restaurant) in Marion, but I don’t have the opportunity,” he said. “I guess (Tampa) just heard about me that I know how to cook a little bit and one time I was at the gas station and this gentleman came to me and say, ‘Hector, there’s some people in Tampa that want to talk to you. They’re willing to help you to open a...

In 1963, Fred David opened Elcon Services to meet a need in Hillsboro.

Since its beginnings, Elcon Services has provided electrical contracting...
