Greg and Dina Evan thank the community for frequenting their home-style restaurant, Alfie's, especially those who helped the beach-side eatery celebrate its recent anniversary.

ORMOND-BY-THE-SEA, Fla. -- Betty and Bud Evans opened the original Alfie’s Restaurant in Jamestown, NY, way back in 1969.

In 1986, they decided to move to Ormond-by-the-Sea and opened up another location, which has now celebrated 29 years in business.

Their son, Greg Evans, and his wife, Dina, own and operate the popular eatery, that remains a throwback to gentler times with great home-cookin' and even better conversation.

The owners have found that giving back to local schools, churches, and charitable organizations has come back to them ten-fold and they are eternally grateful.

The larger South Causeway Bridge in New Smyrna Beach, shown here in the inset may be preferable to the North Causeway Bridge, where a beautification project is expected to make driving an even bigger chore for motorists.

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will a $1.2 million beautification of the North Causeway in this picturesque beach-front city of 22,000 residents.

Beautification begins Monday along the North Causeway, from Riverside Drive east to the George E. Musson Bridge. That's the draw bridge, in and of itself a major bummer for motorists, especially when the beach is letting out for the day.
