We’ve lobbied really hard for Garrison Keillor to give up life in Lake Wobegone and move to Sharon Springs,  but thus far he has not answered our letters or returned our calls.

Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B.

What is a small town village without a small town paper to keep track of what everyone is doing?

Leila Durkin, proprietor of The Village Hall Gallery, is now editor of our own little paper.

Each month you can check back here for a new issue and follow the lives of the real village people.  If you pay a real visit, you  may even want to submit a story idea of your own!

You may not live in small town, but at least you can pretend.

This is great idea!! If all of America took the step back in time to slow down and savor the small town, our country would be a kinder, gentler place! With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it is refreshing to read about, real people and daily life! Nice touch guys!

Although I have no desire whatsoever to live in a small town myself, I love to read about people that do. I'm looking forward to getting to know more about the people from Sharon Springs. And perhaps a guest appearance or two from Polka Spot, the town's celebrity llama.
