Demolition of the former Ditto Sales building at the Y-intersection of U.S. 231 and State Road 56 in Jasper began last week to make room for construction of a SONIC Drive-In. Addressing the old building as part of a larger plan to redevelop the Y-intersection in Jasper has been one of the city's highest priorities for years, according to Herald archives. “It’s an eyesore,” Mayor Dean Vonderheide said of the building in 2019. “Everybody complains about it. I’ve got more phone calls on that property than any other property in the city.”
