Thank you for sharing this. Carole was no doubt a remarkable woman. My cats were all strays, andRead More Sunset Veterinary hospital is where they are treated. I find the staff at Sunset pleasant and caring, and I admire them for continuing Carole's legacy. I never thought to donate newspapers to them as Carole did. I know that the pet adoption at PetsSmart appreciates throw rugs and that some veterinarian hospitals appreciate sheets for use during surgeries.

The village lost a lot when the pharmacy and barber shops closed. It hasn't recovered.

Thanks for the comment, Patty. About how long ago did The Village pharmacy close?

What I would not want to see is a chain of any type in The Village - that's more of the same oldRead More same old that adds no character whatsoever to a community. Having lived in a lot of cities across the US, I have seen what works and what doesn't in both big and small communities. A great example of what works is Madison, WI. Mid-sized town that brings tons of people to the main drag. Lots of eateries and casual dining (look at how packed Sunflower is all the time). And drinking establishments where you can sit outside and enjoy your sandwich with a beer. Street carts every day in an established zone. No street cars allowed on main drag which is inviting for pedestrians (and chickens!). Another good example is Jeremy, AZ. Small town, old buildings with tons of character. They have a great mix of casual and upscale. Lots of art and tons of people all the time stopping by. Look at what Montpelier, VT is doing - another small community with tons of activity and absolutely no chains except Ben & Jerry's which started there. Tons of independent health food eateries (again - Sunflower is exploding because of that concept - people want more of that these days). What about segway tours and/or bicycle rickshaws? That's my 2 cents!
