Support the new and old

As another “off-season” begins to wind down and we are all gearing up for what is to come, the locals all begin to talk amongst themselves about their hopes and fears for the upcoming winter.

It’s also a time of rumors and speculations about what new or old businesses have crumpled. Who is going where? What new businesses are coming in? Who will make it?

For those of us that have been here for more years than they care to admit, all I can hope for is that the snow falls in massive amounts and happy little tourists from near and far gather in our hometown and have fun ” spend a lot of money while they are here.

And for those of us that live here year-round, let’s support the new and old, all that makes our town as special as it is. It’s the people that live in this community that make this place so special. My only grievance lately is where to go and get my morning caffeine fix. Yes, there are an abundance of places ” even my own Mr. Coffee has its moments, but it just hasn’t been the same since John stopped greeting me with my “Tall NF Cap” and his infectious wit. Enough said.

Onward through the fog,

Brenna Mitchell
