The People in Rach's Neighborhood
Rachael grew up in Lake George, NY, and still gets back there whenever she can. She shares some of her favorite spots and introduces you to a few of the friendly faces in her neighborhood.
George Patrick, Owner of George's Restaurant and Purrs & Paws Cat Shelter
George keeps 500 to 1,300 cats at a time at his no-kill shelter. George says, "We've managed to save about 2,000 animals to date." George runs his business just to make enough money to keep the cats fed and alive (and he welcomes donations).
Dean Beckos, Owner of Montcalm Restaurant
Rachael says, "I love their Katharine Hepburn brownies. I have them every year for my birthday cake."
Phil Hart, Owner of The Harvest Restaurant
Phil says, "It's like Cheers, where everybody knows everybody's name." Rachael loves their pizza and always buys meatballs for Isaboo!
Donna Sutton, Owner of Sutton's Market Place
Rachael loves their grilled raisin bread. "I get it every single time here at Sutton's," Rachael says. "It's my favorite place to come for breakfast whenever I get the chance to come home. Now there's a furniture barn, there's a clothing store, a gift shop, a bakery ... it just goes on and on and on."
Craig Coon, aka "Adirondack Dundee"
According to Rachael, Craig catches skunks, owls, and even bats in your bellfry! "Also," Craig adds, "on the rehab side, we work with rehabers in rescuing injured and orphaned wildlife and returning them to the wild."
Jerry Williams & John Waterhouse of R.J. Waterhouse Heating Oils
Rachael calls Jerry "the whistling oil man." She says, "Five o'clock in the morning, sub zero weather outside -- he's just a happy cat! And the man who owns the oil company, Mr. Waterhouse, has a chicken coop and we all get fresh eggs from our oil guy!"
