Lee County --  The slow economy isn't hurting growth in Lee County; more business construction is underway on Ledo Road.  

An International House of Pancakes restaurant is now under construction on Cartmell Drive beside Walmart. The restaurant will generate more than $70,000 a year in taxes for Lee County.      

"I really don't think the economy,even if we have a hiccup, another correction in the stock market, or some other negative factors within the next year or two will effect investment by commercial investors in communities like Lee," said the Lee County Development Authority's Executive Director Winston Oxford.  

The IHOP Is scheduled to open in February.
