COLUMN: Saying goodbye to a place
My dad used to love watching the TV program "Cheers" back in the 1980s.
For those of you who don't know, it was a comedy with wonderful characters set in a New England bar. One of the things I remember most is the opening lyrics, "sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name." I didn't think about what that meant at the time because I was so caught up in my own little world of school and friends.
After living in New Richmond for seven years, I now understand.
