Things looked bleak last week for Pam's Market Popcorn, which was in danger of losing its North Market real estate after suffering financial trouble and violating lease terms. A brighter future seems to have emerged since then for owner Pam Tykla.

Tykla met Wednesday morning with Executive Director David Wible and Director of Operations Peggy Outcalt to discuss options for moving forward. The market's executive committee, which makes final decisions about lease compliance, was scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon. Tykla remains hopeful that the situation will be resolved.

"It's looking positive," Tykla said. "I feel very confident that I'll be able to stay. I want to be here."
