Babe will be missed
Bobbi and Norm Crisp contacted us this week and said they'd like to acknowledge and say Thank You to all in the community who have expressed sympathy and offered kind wishes on the loss of their black labrador retriever, "Babe." The dog had earned the reputation as the unofficial "Mascot of Main St."
Bobbi Crisp said she was thankful so many responded as they did.
"It's heartwarming to live in a town where people care so much," she said.
