Sincere condolences are being sent to the family and friends of Linda Webber. She used to live in Freedom several years ago.

The Unity Area Regional Recycling Center in Thorndike is not currently accepting glass. But they take many other items. They take tin/steel cans, metal lids and caps, pie and roasting pans that are clean, foil seals on jars, aluminum foil, flat or rolled into balls and most cat food cans. Remember, all items must be clean and dry. And if you have a question, please call 568-3117 and they will be more than happy to assist you.

Thank you to my helpers this week, Merrily and Kelsey. They joined Dustin and me for dinner one evening, recently.

The farmers are chopping their corn and getting it stored for winter. I am afraid winter will be here before we are ready for it.

Well, I actually did some weed whacking and got the push mower started this week. I got a little yard work done and I will get out there and do some more each day until it is all done.

Dustin and I have been enjoying the gazebo with its lights on and the music cranking. It is a nice respite from the day.

How many of you are reading Reade Brower's column in The Journal? I find it very well written and informative. Good work, Reade.

I am still waiting for some calls or emails about some of the local happenings. There must be some upcoming events that you would like mentioned in this column.

I just heard that we have some new homeowners on top of Gordon Hill. Hey, you two, come visit us in the gazebo before it gets too chilly.

Leo Durocher is quoted as saying, "Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand."

Have a great week and enjoy those walks.
