Golden Grain Cafe - Lind WA - Adams County

A slow economy creates difficult times for local, small businesses.

Located in the heart of the small eastern Washington town of Lind,

this cafe would have been a place to gather

for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat.

A place where among long time friends,

a roll of the dice might be used

to determine who was picking up the bill.

:    :    :

This little local cafe looks like the type of place

my husband and I would seek out

to enjoy a meal on the road.

:    :    :

It is sad when any venture doesn’t pan out

and a business closes.

But losing a local business in a small rural town

like Lind (574 souls) is devastating.

Lind had the only theater around for miles, it closed.

In 2011, the town’s only bank closed as well.

There is a cash machine available,

but to speak to a teller

you’ll have to drive at least forty minutes

to do that these days.

Closed.

That’s a rough six-letter word.
