We all like to stay in our comfort zones. We get complacent – do not try new things.
You might recall a couple of Christmases ago when my family bought me some golf clubs.
I’d never played golf before but I requested the clubs. I needed some recreation and figured I’d gotten too old for softball and basketball.
Those of you who have one or more hummingbird feeders have probably seen some odd behavior among feathered brethren at the feeder.
The Preacher’s Corner
Dr. Simmons’ organ music not for sissiesThis is the time of year when I run small electric fans to cool me while leading worship in the Kirk. I am a hot-natured person and like to have the church cool. However, I know that if it is cool enough for me, the ladies of the congregation are freezing. So I make use of the fans. I even have a nice antique fan that blends right in with the historic architecture of our old church.
The heart says Palmer’s will never close
By Lorraine Thomas
Standing vacant and speaking at the decibel only audible to the heart, Palmer’s Grocery Store in Waterford holds fond memories for those familiar with its history.
Letter To The Editor
There have been some complaints from some of the RES customers regarding garbage pickup.
My garbage is picked up every week, on time. If there is a holiday, it is picked up the next day.
How can your garbage be picked up if it is not where it is supposed to be on “pick-up day?”
So, stop complaining and get your garbage to the roadside!

Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
