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.

The  July 2012 issue of the Chatter is dedicated to Andy Griffith who inspired us all to find our Mayberry no matter what neck of the woods we call home.

I love reading the Chatter every month. I’ll be in Sharon Springs again in Aug. and staying with my aunt who was born and raised in Sharon Springs. My Mom was also raised there and graduated from Sharon Springs High School in 1943 (I have her diploma and tassle). Roots run deep in Schoharie county and I still consider it home. Thanks for the memories. The crazy lady in Tennessee.

When Andy Griffith died, almost felt like my own dad passed away again. (He was a cop in our little town for many years.) I used to refer to him as Mayberry RFD after he passed. Andy showed us what was good about nosey neighbors. I adored that show. Rest in peace, Andy. Thank you so much. Pride, integrity, guts.
