The concept of what constitutes a small town—or village in the terminology used in some areas—is a relatively one. In much of the rural West, a small town usually has less than 1,000 people. Small towns can be interesting places and often have colorful histories. Shown below are some small towns we recently encountered in Oregon.

Where else but a small town would you find a combination hardware store and restaurant (appropriately called Screw and Brew).

Welcome to Street Prophets Saturday, an open thread. Feel free to share your observations about small towns or whatever else is on your mind. And the usual question is---What’s for dinner?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
