Jeremy Vanderhoef brought new hope and earned a round of applause from the members of Rising Sun's Chamber of Commerce last week.
Vanderhoef, of Nottingham, Pa., has invested in the town's future, buying a pair of downtown properties. He bought both the former Western Auto and the neighboring Sun Cellular buildings in the unit block of East Main Street. Both those vacant high profile buildings have long been a concern for town officials.
