Re: “After robbery, Beggars & Choosers owner decides to close store

Miss Pam, I'm so sorry this happened. I've enjoyed coming to your store for more than 10 years now, since I was in college and it would take forever to get out to Pittsboro stuck behind a big old truck on the little road. Some of my most favorite things and happiest memories come from poking around your shop. When you opened up the little sewing and fabric room in the back I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. There'll never be anything that comes close to Beggars and Choosers. Thanks for that. I hope you get your faith in people back.

Re: “Jeanne M. Leiby's Downriver

Sounds like someone has a chip on her shoulder about her childhood. As a Downriver resident, I resent the portrait painted about the area in this book and the previous poster's comments. Naturally, it's not a perfect place to live but find a place that is. It all depends on how you look at it. If you're a negative person, always looking at the dark side of things, then I suppose you'd view Downriver like these two. I, however, know there are a lot of great things going on. And the statement that most residents are former drug users is just ludicrous and ignorant! Also, there is plenty of real "culture" available in the area if you know where to look. Please stop being so stereotypical and painting all Downriver residents with the same broad brush!
