  • May Your Week be Blessed

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Mar 22, 2017

    In spite of a couple rough spots the week before last, and one the week before that, it was a great one. Two weeks ago Sunday, I had a really nice visit with a friend. I’d shared with her about a doctor’s appointment I’d had. I told her a CT scan of my chest revealed spots of cancer in my ribs, vertebrae, and sternum. Several of them were new spots. My doctor and I had a discussion about pain management. When I met with my oncologist, we talked about the CT scan I’d had the week before. He said he wanted a contrast CT scan of my abdomen and pel...

  • Remember Recycling

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Mar 22, 2017

    I have written before about recycling and I admit I am at it again. We have all read the funny little articles about the “Green Thing” and nod our head in agreement. Yes, those of us of my generation and previous generations recycled so many things without giving it a thought. It was an everyday thing. Coffee cans were saved and many times used in the shop by the men to organize their nuts and bolts, etc., clothing was recycled by making over for the children, and so on and on. My husband and I took a few days off a couple of weeks ago to att...

    Marc Kloker, For the Courier|Mar 22, 2017

    FWP would like to remind folks to watch for deer and other animals on the road, especially during the early morning and early evening hours when both visibility is difficult and animals are sometimes more active. With the recent hour time change, many folks who are commuting are now an hour “forward” and may see more activity. As our deer numbers are continuing to make a comeback across the region, more and more animal-vehicle accidents are bound to occur. In addition, the spring “fawning” season is just around the corner, and deer are often m...
