Mileposts: The Waffle Hut

In Citizens, Narrative on October 12, 2009 at 4:20 pm
Jon Haystack sits inside the Waffle Hut to write his experience of a Missing Mile favourite.

Photo and story by Jon Haystack

As I walk up to the waffle house door, my faint reflection looks straight at me between the glass, as if it was in another world parallel to this one. It mimics me, taunting me, following every action that I do and any in sight of its’ view.

Blinking twice, I go to turn the handle as it does at the exact moment and the door swings back. My reflection soon dissipates as I enter. Walking inside, I can smell the aroma of sizzling batter, warm syrup, and cooked toast. The waitress, Suzie Applebottom, is busy working behind the counter. Moving from the waffle maker to the stoves, she happily works through the day to keep those eager for waffles, well fed.

A Mile in My Shoes: Delilah McDoodle

In Citizens, Interviews on October 5, 2009 at 3:32 am

del mcdoodleOnce a sporadic visitor, this interviewee has taken the plunge and moved to the Mile three weeks ago.

She doesn’t come toting machine guns, skin tight clothing, or tattoos, but she does warn against letting her big city ways fool you.

She gets upset sometimes, just like the rest of us, but overall she describes herself as a peaceful person looking for closure, a chance at happiness, and a break from the past.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce this week’s subject of A Mile in My Shoes, Delilah McDoodle.

A Mile in My Shoes: Jon Haystack

In Citizens, Interviews on September 29, 2009 at 11:52 pm


This week’s A Mile in My Shoes brings you someone you’ve likely seen, or likely will.

He’s the person many say was their first friend in Missing Mile so he’s not kidding when he says,  “I’m POPULAR?!”, even if he does phrase it as more of a question than a statement.

Below you’ll discover his karaoke song of choice and learn of his failed venture as a Kentucky Fried Chicken salesman.

A big advocate of Ramen, and not eating the yellow snow; meet the man and the manifestation (of what we’re not quite sure), Jon Haystack.

In Citizens, Interviews on September 21, 2009 at 9:23 pm

Zoey ClowesOur past two ‘A Mile in My Shoes’ articles have featured longstanding Missing Mile citizens. But no less important to the development and future of our community, we’ve chosen a relative newcomer for the spotlight this week.

The message she hoped to relay to our readers was one of hope, and she reminds us that nothing lasts forever so enjoy it while you can.

You’ll learn everything from her aspirations of bartending, to the first person to befriend her, and the place she finally calls home. Hopefully a stranger no longer by the time you finish reading, without further ado let’s meet Zoey.

Mile Style: Remi Taylor

In Citizens, Fashion on September 19, 2009 at 8:24 pm


Missing Mile Times is proud to present our newest feature, Mile Style.

Style is a lot like opinions (and assholes if you must go there), everybody’s got one. Whether good or bad is highly subjective, but Mile Style strives to bring you Missing Mile residents that go the extra mile to express themselves and wear their hearts on their literal sleeves.

Unlike A Mile in My Shoes, Mile Style will not commit to a strict publishing schedule, rather when remarkable style presents itself we will try our best to be there to capture it.

We look very forward to this new addition, and documenting the big style of this small town!
