  • Villagers go to the dogs (and cats)

    YS PetNet’s Kari Barnes, Faye Wheeler and LaVena Lichtenfels shared a tent with Hansel and Gretel at a recent farmers’ market. PetNet is a local collective of animal foster homes for stray and abandoned cats and dogs. The terriers are two of the animals currently looking for a loving family. To date, the group has successfully found homes for 11 strays, and reunited three dogs with their owners. (Submitted Photo)

  • BLOG— Intimate strangers

    I don’t make a habit of riding around town at dusk, but maybe I should! The rewards are subtle. I’m not looking for anything exotic from my fellow villagers, just plain life. A woman at a sink. A man in a chair, inspecting his glasses.
