Sloughhouse Inn closes its doors – again

Sloughhouse Inn

There are still a couple of events booked, but Saturday night was the last night of public operation for the Sloughhouse Inn under Mark and Betsy Hite, who’ve run the business for 14 months. The 160-year-old inn, once a stagecoach stop, has had a tough 21st century, dark most of that time. Betsy Hite, who was also the chef for this incarnation, circulated among the tables Saturday night, stopping here and there to exchange hugs. In a brief interview, she said the business hadn’t returned a profit since opening and they had to spend a substantial amount for building maintenance. She said there's not another restaurant operator in line to run the Sloughhouse Inn. Hite's catering business, based in Wilton, continues. (Click photo for larger image.)

Eagle

Bill (Birdman) Gengler shares one of his nature photos and this note: "Took this picture today of what seems to be a juvenile bald eagle sitting on a power pole on the backside of Lake Calero.  It had a dinner in its claws and flew away into the trees to eat it.  Yes, the hawks and eagles are still around our lakes even though it is hot out there after Summer Solstice. Have a good day."
