What Bert Has To Say About Lima Metro Area

Lima is at a crossroads geographically between several Midwestern cities as well as metaphorically in its evolution. It has a robust past as a manufacturing center of automotive parts, neon signs, and steam locomotives, but those industries are in obvious decline, and the city has followed suit. A strong oil and gas industry tied to local production and reserves does give some vitality to the economy, although it doesn’t bring a large number of jobs.
