Davisville, 9/1/14: Wendy Weitzel, chronicler of Davis business

Wendy Weitzel has reported the arrivals and exits of Davis businesses in her “Comings & Goings” column in the Davis Enterprise since 2001. It's one of the paper's most-read items, and a good place to track the retail enthusiasms that wax and wane in town, from pizza to frozen yogurt.

On today's show, she discusses how she works.
