Let's see,

Mayor Andersen is quoted above as saying that after hiring an architect for the Vet's Hall, "Then we can decide, can we remodel, restore or do a renovation."

Can someone tell me what the difference is between "remodel" "restore" and "renovate" ???

Linguistically challenged,

Dear Editor,

Remodel is when one stops dating the first model and start dating a second model.

Restore is when a store fails and new store moves into the same space.

Renovate is when the first vate was not enough and no further vates are available.
