When I bummed around Wolcott, Indiana looking for somewhere to eat, I happened upon this depressing sign scotch-taped to the window. I don’t know how long John and Darlene were in business. I don’t know how long they have been closed. I don’t even know who they are.

This is why I do what I do. Personally, I know there are many people in my area who have lost their job.  Businesses keep closing all over little Indiana and it is heart-breaking.  But, it isn’t all bad. We are all pulling a little closer together, creating a community, spending more time together instead of at the mall.

The next time you are toodling down I-65 or just passing through and are hungry–well, isn’t it about time you stopped hitting those same tasteless places and venture around to one of the many incredible Indiana towns all around you? Every time a small business dies we all share the blame.
