You, however, choose the path of condemnation.

TO THE EDITOR: I’m writing to express my gratitude to Josh and Gladys Archer, chef and inn manager at the Essex Inn in Essex.
To my immense sadness, they will not be returning. This means our small community is losing two amazing, hard-working people who brought a year-round, top-notch menu to an area where many eateries close down by Columbus Day.
We have been blessed the past few years to be able to eat local, organic food and to have a chef that offered not only traditional and creative fare but also a gluten-free menu.
Josh and Gladys kept the Essex Inn open year-round, a feat that no one has sustained in more than a decade. They partnered with local farms to get the freshest produce, meats and cheeses. They employed happy people.
And most of all, they made you feel as though you were coming home when you walked through the doors.
Thank you, Josh and Gladys, for being part of our little community and feeding us through the seasons. You are truly loved and appreciated and will be missed more than words can say.
