Cascade Mini Mart????

One of the first things I learned upon returning home is that the Cascade General Store has been sold and will be doing business as Cascade Mini Mart. Some folks from town have purchased, and they own 2 or 3 mini marts and the store on Ridge Rd and Alta. Good luck to them. It would be nice to have a convenience store. Heard they also will have a deli counter. The changeover should take place soon.
Today was the kids Halloween party put on by Womens Club at the firehouse. It was fun as usual, and Carol Carter and the ladies supplied all the amazing goodies and treats for kids and parents attending, along with bingo, musical chairs, pinata and craft making. Met a new family from Nugget street who were pushing a baby buggy with 4 day old Laney inside, along with their other 2 kids. They moved away from a house on Nuggett 4 years ago over to highway 20 side, and missed the old neighborhood so moved back with their growing family. They said they missed the "community" of the shores, so bought the house next door to their former shores house. Welcome back. That's a nice story. And by the way, Laney is already a ravishing beauty.
While I was experiencing the "noreaster" on Cape Cod, apparently we were having quite a storm here too. Took a day to clean up the fall out from the rain and wind. Enjoyed every minute of it. The smell of the wet dirt and pine trees is intoxicating. Enjoy these warm days. I think winter is very near. By the way, the colors were late coming in Boston due to a warm spell. It is far more colorful here right now! Be sure to drive up Nevada Street in town. Breathtaking.
For you that know and love Shera Banbury, she has found herself a beautiful new home in Grass Valley to buy. She'll be moving in early November and is very excited to be back in her own casa.
Dixie ran a press release in her blog about the 5 mile house reopening on Hwy. 20. That is a beautiful building, and it sounds like the have a great new menu. Good luck to them. That is a tough location in winter, but love the drive in the nice weather. To bad there wasn't a bridge from here to the hwy 20 side. It's such a short distance as the crow flies. But it is only 5 minutes from Broad St.
