Um, and this is news why? Seems more like a splendid little advertisement for Gearhart's.

Seems to me that if you replaced "chocolates" with "blankets for the homeless". It would be a similar story, gearing up to do a good thing for the holiday, except Gearhart's are a local business who employ local people, practice an awesome artistry, This is may promote the business of a long time resident, but it seems like many of you wouldn't question an article about them going out of business. Personally I am glad to see that they are doing well and in demand... I will visit today!

The news is not always about government programs and pedophiles. Sorry to disappoint you.
