I take issue, Council Member Burt, wrongly referring to our Ada’s community as a “them” . Ada’s IS us. All of WE. Goes back and forward and all around. Those who serve is giving and those giving, are those in service. It’s not a “them”. It’s an all of us . Circular motion. Ada’s may serve the coffee (best in town) yet it is the customer who serves the whole as well. I’d love it should Mr. Burt take a shift at Ada’s and get his hands all in how it’s done, performed, perfected. Ada’s is not a “them” yet a “we” all commitment . And we deserve to serve Ada’s as Ada’s serves us. Get it? I thank the heavens above, normal hard working individuals at Ada’s cafe have and imbibe an ethic far superior to a council Dias to get the work done in joy and giving fully of themselves, this attribute is truly human.

So glad the Council saw fit to extend the funding to Ada’s Cafe which is an amazing home grown non-profit that benefits our entire community!
