Hello All,

I have been having internet problems — in and out it goes. Has a cyber mind of its own. Hope all are liking the cooler weather. I’ll take it. But we all know what will be coming sooner than later.

My Florida friends Jan and Robert soon head back to Florida after spending several weeks in their cabin in Montville. Safe travels to them.


Our condolences to Karen Doughty on the recent loss of her sister, Sandra. Thinking of her, and Linwood at this time, and the extended Fletcher families. May she rest in peace. Condolences to the Mayer family in Liberty on the loss of Elizabeth “Betty Boop” Mayer, mother to Ed Mayer Jr. and Lori Mayer. Thinking of all.

Congrats to young Mylee Grant after years of sending in videos to the National Gymnastics staff. She finally got an invitation to the National Training Center in Indianapolis to train with the National staff and other gymnastics athletes like her. Her coach says “she has the ability and drive to be an elite level gymnast.” Way to go, Miss Mylee!! Here’s to the Grant family for all her years of working for her goals, Congrats to all!!

Who’s ready for apples?

Maine-ly Orchards will be opening starting on Friday, Sept. 10, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. They have maple syrup, honey and cider, too.


The world is gonna judge you no matter what you do, so live your life the way you want to.


I hear they are working on Old County road now. Tarring that road.

Until next time,

Get some fresh veggies, and apples. Everything is so much better fresh locally. Stay warm and be safe. School reopens Aug. 30. Kids are off to college now as well. Having a birthday or anniversary, let me know.

P.S. I have been submitting news to The Republican Journal for many, many years, started back when Geneva Hurd, Millie Wentworth were writing. Geneva did Knox, I did Knox Center, maybe even East Knox — I forget now. Took a break, then back at it. Memories.
