We’re open, but not too late!
The attention-getter sign on the sidewalk in front of Auburn Art, on College Street, downtown.

We were pleased, last fall, to see that Daylight Donuts was opening a satellite store near our home. It was a mile-and-a-half away. We could walk there and burn the calories.
I think we went three times.
Now it is closed. The Daylight guy, who is friendly and always ready to talk your ear off, put up a “Due to rising fuel and production costs” note. The landlord, right next to that, taped a “Due to failure to pay rent” note. You decide.
Only the signage and shelving remain. Very sad.
At least they still have the big store on the main road …
One of the historic live oaks at storied Toomer’s Corner in Auburn. The corner marks the place where town and campus meet and is where the community celebrates big moments together.
You might have heard that some disturbed individual poisoned the trees last fall. This spring will tell the experts a lot about the fate of the trees, but the latest news was grim.
No one knows how who planted them, but they are estimated at 130 years old.
