You will have a new correspondent next week. I finally found someone to take over. It is Cindy Sullivan who was born and raised in this area. My eyes are getting too bad to continue.

Cindy’s husband Chad won the school board election last week. So did incumbent Rhonda Coatney. All who were running got several votes.
I enjoyed visiting with the ladies at Teresa’s beauty shop yesterday. I hadn’t seen Sue Forrest in ages. She brought her mother, Mary Brock, to the shop.
