It was such a pleasure to read about Northampton Haymarket’s owner Peter Simpson’s community donation meal program (“Accounting for the common good,” Jan. 14) and Rebecca Robbins, owner of Woodstar Cafe, stating she would not refuse to hire employees who smoke cigarettes. (“Keeping smokers off the job,” Jan. 13)

Both local owners of incredible cafes show the open mindedness and caring of our city business owners and makes me proud to make this my families’ home. When the news is so sad and overwhelming it is comforting to know there are two cafes where everyone is welcome and the food and drinks are delicious.
