Kudos to Judy, her family and staff for a great run at the Fat Lady Cafe. We’ll be missing the sentry and chaotic personality for quite some time. Congrats to Susan Harte for the progress building White Lake Woods. It’s taking shape! End of an era: the Red Barn was demolished last week. Nice to meet Joe Frieda, member of Beechwoods Yacht Club and outstanding, local author.
