I can remember well The Mercury back in the 40s and 50s and the following years when it was located on Center Street and owned by the Palmer family.
It was nice to see it come back to life in the last few years. The Mercury always gave us unique local information and stories that we will surely miss.
Sadly, this is a sign of the times when small businesses, whether they be newspapers, stores, restaurants, dealerships or farms cannot make ends meet.
This paper came back before. Hopefully there will be a time in the future when hardworking dedicated people can once again make a living. In the meantime... thanks for the memories.
