    Great story! Maybe it will inspire ANCA’s Executive Director Elizabeth Cooper to explain to the Clifton-Fine community why she closed up Star Lake’s “HUB” Coffee Fever. Until then the community is left in the dark. Kudos to those who build, shame on those who destroy.

      Terrance – individuals have to make the best choices they can for their families and personal situations. Elizabeth did not destroy anything. She ran a successful community oriented business and did very many good things for very many people. She had a choice to make about her family and her life and she decided that running that business was not going to work anymore. Personal choice. Kudos for her for having the courage to start the business to begin with and to then make a very hard choice that was better for her family. She loved and loves Star Lake. She owes no one an explanation.
