Jim passed away and Gene is now homeless.. Jerry The "Mayor"

Original post made by Donald on Jun 26, 2009

Sadly "Jim" who would often be downtown by Tully's coffee has passes away at age 50.
A quiet and kind of grumpy guy at times, will be missed by many regulars.
RIP Jim...

Gene, the long haired guy who is always drinking coffee and smoking by cafe main or Tully's is now homeless. He is getting more and more depressed. I wonder if he knows about social services?

We have a homeless young man who lives in his van at one of the parking lots in town. It breaks my heart to see this but he manages to hold a job and is often seen climbing out of his old van, straightening his clothes and walking off to work with a briefcase in hand. At least he has a job. For now, anyway.

I sure hope the economy turns around soon.
