Apartment leasing season is in full bloom as local landlords seek 100 percent occupancy for their properties.

Ray Hendley has been in the business of developing duplexes and condominiums in Statesboro since 1968, and he isn't surprised at the steady growth in housing that continues to amaze many local residents, and further, doesn't seem to be ruffled by it.
