On the Street in Black Forest

As it poured rain on a Tuesday afternoon, The New Falcon Herald spoke with Ellen Warren ó a semi-new transplant to Black Forest ó as she grabbed a quick bite at Subway. Warren, age 46, moved to Black Forest about two months ago. She actually lived in the area as a child before moving with her parents to the Midwest when she was about 2 years old. After spending most of her life in Michigan, the self-taught musician came back to her roots.NFH: What is your favorite thing about Black Forest?Warren: The peace and quiet!
