Miller column: We're updating our space, but we aren't going anywhere
Perhaps you've heard rumors about us. They've likely been some variation of we're closing our doors, moving out of town or, worse yet, closing up shop. None of those rumors is true. We have sold our building, but that's a good thing. Our building has been way too large for our needs...
