Freeville needs a new diner... again

This morning's Ithaca Journal is quiet on Dryden again, but an empty building in Freeville is a story.

I was up early and rather hungry this morning, so I thought I'd go up to Gramma's (where Toad's used to be) in Freeville again. I think I was last there in June, though maybe it was earlier. Alas, it was closed, with a for sale sign on the front window.

I'm afraid Amy Dickinson will have to ask for prayers for a diner again.

Just a few years ago, we were told that closing underpopulated Freeville Elementary School, or converting it to the town hall or a community center, would cause businesses in Freeville to dry up. The school is still open, but businesses in Freeville are dust in the wind. Perhaps there's another cause-and-effect relationship happening here? Just a thought.
