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.

See below for the September Issue

This is a great paper!

I live in a little town too…Our little town of Brookside is located north of Green Bay, WI and South of Oconto, WI. Unfortunately, the closest things we have to a local paper is The Oconto Reporter, and the freebie papers that come every Saturday morning. Nothing like this wonderful periodical of yours!


I live in the community of Pinewood, TN, a subsidiary of Nunnelly, TN (the post office). We have a general store and a volunteer fire department.


This is great. Can't wait for next month's issue. My aunt used to live in a little, 321 people, town in the Upper Peninsula of MI and they had a weekly paper called the Weekly Wave. If you went to visit anyone in town for a few days your name went on the "society page" as a special visitor.
