News is only a bulletin board away.

The Rainbow Grocery is South Fork’s main grocery and, besides food, you can buy fishing licenses, camping gear, lures and flies, ice and bug spray. Right on the main drag, it is next to the Rainbow Motel , close enough to walk to on a chilled morning.

By September, tourism will begin to slow in town and cabins for rent will be shut down for the winter. The town of South Fork will shrink to hundreds of people instead of thousands. Deer on the roads won’t have to be as vigilant. Locals will still gather in small cafes early in the morning and talk politics, weather, and football.

This bulletin board has standard fare – ads for travel trailers and ATV’s, promos for upcoming Art Shows and Music concerts,cabins for sale, who to call to get your septic tank pumped.. If you need your dog groomed, your health improved, a place to live, a place to worship, you have times and dates and phone numbers.

Most people’s most important messages never make the Bulletin Board. They stay locked up deep inside their hearts waiting for the right person to reveal them too.
