Cheney Visits Mid-Michigan, Local Business Feels Security Tighten

By  | 

Finley's American Restaurant was closed for business while the Vice President visited mid-Michigan Tuesday, but it wasn't the only business blocked off in the area.

Traffic was shut off for about two blocks on West Saginaw Highway. Brent Maly, owner of Heaven Ham two doors down from Finley's, says even after the cones were lifted his store suffered. Maly says business was held up all day and it was difficult for customers and delivery trucks to get through.

Meantime, protesters and supporters lined the sidewalks waving signs and speaking their minds.
