Amy's Closing?

I heard that Amy's is closing. Is there any truth to this?

Amy's Closing

I just found out that Amy's Bakery and Cafe will be closing their doors in early June. This will be a huge blow to Main Street and one less reason to visit downtown. Amy's has been kind of a linchpin for Main Street. How many of us have made plans to " meet at Amy's"?  I wonder how much longer the rest of the long time businesses will be able to survive in an environment that is not kind to small businesses. I wonder if we will even be able to recognize Main Street in 5 or 6 years. This is a shame and this wonderful little cafe will be greatly missed.

Bear Spotted in the Retreat Woods, 5/17, Evening

FYI, be aware that a bear was sighted this evening, 5/17, between around 7 and 7:30 pm in the Retreat Woods. It was a full-grown adult, and ran away from my dog and me when we surprised it. Location: between the "Just for Fun" trail and the highway, relatively close to Greenhill Parkway and Western Avenue. No cubs were seen.

Howling Dog

Large dog Enzo is all alone down in his apartment and has been howling and barking since 9 AM. His owner, our tenant, hung up on me when I called her at work. The neighbor who lives upstairs from Enzo is on a work related phone conference call until 1pm and the noise makes it very difficult for him to do his work. The dog warden doesn't work today.

Suggestions?

Avi's Hotdog Cart?

I've noticed that Avi isn't downtown yet with his hotdog cart.  I miss him, even though I rarely eat hotdogs.  Things really aren't the same without him! Anyone know what's up?
