Good Morning. There is so little to talk about without going to the subjects of cancellations, sickness and staying home, but since I am trying not to be a Gloomy Gus, I will not talk about such things.

Good Morning. It has been a bit disturbing to wake in the morning darkness again. How long does it take your body’s internal clock to adjust to daylight savings time? I was enjoying the morning sunrise, with birds chirping and glimmers of the sun filtering through the bare branches of the tr…

Good morning. I hope that many of you had a chance to benefit from the short work week due to Presidents Day. It is kind of nice to get a long weekend each month with holidays in January, and February, though this year Easter comes a bit later, in April. March is a full month, with only dayl…

Good Morning. Townville has a rich history in being a part of a local paper. I was lucky enough to see an original print of “The Townville Breeze”, our own home town newspaper, that was printed on April 17,1896. There were postings of Steuben Township, Little Cooley, Guys Mills and other sur…

Good Morning. This is the time of year that is good to reach out to friends and family that we have not seen or visited with in quite some time. There is a lull in the hectic schedules of the holidays, and even with the crazy weather we have had, there are moments that we can reach out by ma…

Good morning. Saturday is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, which took place on Dec. 7, 1941. That was the first attack on American soil by a foreign power in modern history. Until Sept. 11, 2001, it was the most damaging to our country. We, as Americans, must not forget what others have …

Good morning. Let’s begin with a wish of a “happy anniversary” for Samuel and Rosemarie Lewis, of Diamond, celebrating 65 year of marriage today. If you see them or if you have a chance to call and extend you best wishes, they would surely appreciate it.

Happy Halloween to all my readers, near and far. Many communities have held their trick-or-treat events, but there was a time when all waited until this day to trick or treat regardless of what day of the week it fell on.

Good morning. I apologize for not having my column in last week. My computer did not send out what I wrote for it (though it said that I had), and it was days later before I realized the problem. Some of what I wrote is still viable for this week, so it will be repeated in part. And for thos…

Good Morning. With the lawn mowing season upon us, I see a frequent error in judgment among those doing yard work. It is illegal and a hazard to mow or weed whack grass onto the road surface. Too many times the wind will not clear it off the road and that surface of grass is slippery to driv…

Good morning. As a gardener, my dining room is turning into a plant nursery. I have seeds started for many garden plants, and seedlings under the grow light to get things ready for the family garden this year. This is my way of welcoming spring, to see shoots growing and prepping for a large…
