Interesting comment that the new residents of Alma Village say it feels like a ghost town.

I thought that the idea was call it a village and people would get to know their neighbors because of the community feel, they would walk and bike everywhere, sit in the park watching the children play and forget that they were in residential suburbia. Seems the reality is very different. But of course, and are we surprised?

I have been to Grocery Outlet in RWC, and was disgusted to find many food items being sold after their expiration date. I certainly will not shop at the new local one. The savings will not pay for or ameliorate the consequences of food poisoning.
